Running!

I’ve been trying to get back on the running train lately. It’s been a few years since I was really running a good amount and I miss it. It can be a great morning workout, much quicker than a bike ride, and a great way to clear the head before a busy day. I’ve felt […]

Pat’s Run 2019

Like always Pat’s Run was an awesome, inspiring experience. With excellent hanging out afterwards! Hopped the Light Rail to get down to Tempe, a wise choice. The National Anthem, belted on a trumpet is very cool. Then with Jake Plummer’s starting horn, we were off to the races!

Pat’s Run

Pat’s Run, the race honoring Pat Tillman, was April 26th in Tempe, Az.  This was the 10th year, and like always, they had a huge turnout!  I woke up about 5 and grabbed some coffee as I headed towards downtown Tempe.  Walking to the start area you are in a sea of the yellow race […]

Psyched on the @Strava App

Not sure how many triathlon people out there have been using the Strava App for biking and running, I love it!  It uses your phone’s GPS to track rides or runs and uploads them to their website.  The website is really cool, it shows your ride on a map and compares your time to others […]

One Month In!

So it’s been about a month now that I’ve been back at the committed triathlon training.  So far everything has been going pretty well, there have been a few bumps in the road, but that always seems to happen!  I feel like I have made training a habit again,  missing my workouts if I don’t […]
