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 […]Read More Running!
I was hoping to have a solid summer of biking and hiking, but I just haven’t had the motivation to go out in the Phoenix heat! For a long time I’ve been able to deal with and train through the summer, but in the past few years it has really started to effect me. I […]Read More The Summer Heat is Bringing Me Down
AKA: There Will Be Sweating The yearly Colorado backpacking trip can be a challenge, mainly because of the altitude. Coming up from Phoenix, AZ (elevation 1086’), makes for a tough first few days. I like to enjoy myself as much as possible, call me crazy, so being fit is the only way to get past […]Read More Time to Train for the Summertime Adventures
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!Read More Pat’s Run 2019
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 […]Read More Pat’s Run
Sadly, there has been almost no Tri training this year. I almost always have trouble keeping the motivation to training going after an IM race, but I had hoped to do better than this. There have been a few rides and a few runs but nothing that could be considered real training. As it heats […]Read More The Ironman Hangover
This was a great overall experience, I got to train for the race with two really good fiends, we had nice weather and the IM people put on another great race! I headed down on Friday to get checked in and hang out at my friend’s booth at the expo. It was fun to just […]Read More Ironman Arizona Race Report
While I had planned to go on RAGBRAI for vacation this year, I just couldn’t make it happen. Since I had already scheduled my vacation time and wanted to get some good miles on the bike, my friend Len and I headed up to Flagstaff. It’s a great place to go for some riding […]Read More High Altitude Training Days
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 […]Read More Psyched on the @Strava App
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 […]Read More One Month In!
