I raced The Rock ‘n’ Roll Arizona Half Marathon this past Sunday. It had been a while since I had done this race, as I’ve said December is a tough month work wise for me, and I don’t always do the best training through it. This year I was doing good, a solid spree of […]Read More Rock 'n' Roll Arizona Half Marathon
My major December work is finished at the restaurant! It’s always the toughest month of the year for work, which translates into a tough month to train through. I was on a solid 6 day a week spree ,but finally succumbed to then need to just crank through some work, much needed rest, and the […]Read More Time To Get Back At It!
I pulled the trigger and signed up for the Rock and Roll Arizona Half Marathon. I’ve been feeling pretty good running and wanted to go ahead and commit, so much easier to maintain motivation once you’ve paid your entry fee! I haven’t been running very fast lately, but it has felt good and I’ve been […]Read More Signed Up
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
