The Toyota US Open Championships are this Sunday (10/2/11) and I will be racing with teammate Robert Swan and a few other friends. This race holds a special place in my heart because it was my first Olympic distance triathlon.  I learned so much from this race and used it as a springboard for 70.3 […]

It is Thursday so that means another opportunity to present to you a day in the food life of an athlete.  This athlete comes to us via Twitter and her blog.  Quite simply she is one of the funniest people in my social media circle.  Conversations seem to center around women’s parts.  Boobs specifically, but […]

Race day is fast approaching for me.  I am racing the Toyota US Open Championships (goals coming out on Friday) on Sunday and then the last triathlon of the season at 70.3 Austin on October 23, 2012.

I have been clamoring for the Speedfil A2 ever since I saw the product on the Speedfil Facebook page.  I commented on their wall multiple times trying to find out when it was going to be sold to the public.  I was excited to find out that September 1st would be the day of its […]

It is amazing the way life works.  One day you read something and then for a week that is all you see.  Similar to when you buy a car and then you notice it on the road at all times.  Or in triathlon world you buy yourself a Specialized Transition Comp and the very next […]

You Are An Ironman

IMLOU finish

Yesterday I posted about believing in yourself.  In that post I had an article by Susan Lacke about going from Couch Potato to Ironman.  Within that article was another article written by her titled Anybody Can Do An Ironman. I agree with Susan’s point of view that anybody can do one, but the rationale for […]

You Say You Can’t But I Say You Can

impossible_excuses_nothing

Just about everyday I get asked the question of how do you do what you do?  I ask them initially what they are talking about because I don’t consider myself special and certainly don’t have some super human powers.  I wake up early to train because I want to be home in the evening with […]

Sweet Potato-palooza

Yesterday I posted about Sweet Potatamole, which is a creation using sweet potatoes and avocados.  It is nutrient packed and tastes outstanding. Not to be outdone I kept my experimental hat on last night and made a sandwich for the Giants-Rams game and flat out loved it.  You have to love a sandwich that comes […]
