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’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!
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

Fortunately, I’ve been doing a pretty good job of keeping up with the training. The serious Ironman training is still […]Read More Lately in our life…
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!
We’re at the 6 months out mark from IMAZ so it was time to jump back into the training with both feet. My friends, Len and Bill, and I had been getting in some good, base building rides over the past few months. Now it is time to really start the committed training, and I […]Read More Doin’ Good Getting Back to Training
So far so good this week with the training. Took Monday and Tuesday off as planned and got in a good ride Wednesday morning, wasn’t even that hot for the first 1/2 of the ride! We added a second hill loop to what we’ve been riding lately. here’s the ride elevation graph: The hills aren’t […]Read More Getting back to the Habit
