Where Is The Love?


Where is the love from the mainstream?  Where is just a simple article or mention of the sport of triathlon from the big guys?  For some reason last night I was going through ESPN and clicking on different links when I thought to myself:  Does ESPN have anything about triathlon?  How about coverage of Kona or […]

Bikram Yoga — The Great Equalizer


Bikram yoga has long been on my radar.  For years I was doing yoga at a studio and loved.  My first instructor, Tao, was an 85-year-old woman who could bend like a pretzel and always took time out to use me as a guinea pig for the class to see.  I was never so flexible […]

Ironman Arizona In Pictures


Ironman Arizona is over a week old and you may or may not have read the race report.  Maybe you skipped that and read the comparison to Ironman Texas.  Maybe you just didn’t want to read so I don’t leave you out I put together a video montage from pictures taken by friends, family and […]

Vegan, Gluten Free Carrot Cake Pancake Recipe


Vegan and Gluten Free are the buzz words of the year it would seem.  Everywhere I turn, or research, I see recipes for vegan and gluten-free and it baffles me the things that people call vegan and/or gluten-free.  The perfect example was the gluten-free guacamole recipe I found on Pinterest.  Really?  Are you really labeling […]

Nairn’s Oat Biscuits Product Review

Thanksgiving Breakfast


Thanksgiving is all about eating until your pants burst or so I have read.  Ever since I started the endurance lifestyle my calorie consumption has changed quite a bit. In my first marriage Thanksgiving was just a day to eat, eat and eat some more.  After doing Thanksgiving at her family’s house, which included dessert […]

Ironman Arizona versus Ironman Texas


Ironman Arizona and Ironman Texas are the first two of many Ironman races I plan on doing and so I wanted to write a post that will compare the two.  The reason I want to compare the two is that Ironman Arizona sold out in 40 seconds and there will be people out there that […]

Ironman Arizona 2012 Race Report


Ironman Arizona 2012 is the last triathlon of the season and I went out with a BANG.  This race report came very close to being the shortest race report for an Ironman race but fortunately (or unfortunately for you) I have a lot more to say since there was and ending that I can speak […]

Fed Up!


I am fed up with the things I see around me.  Maybe they have been going on for some time now and I’m just noticing because I am not training 20 hours per week or maybe they are just becoming so blatant that it is impossible to ignore anymore.  There were a few things I […]

Ironman Arizona 2012 Goals


Ironman Arizona is officially in the T-Minus single digit days.  9 days until the cannon goes off and I embark on my second Ironman race of this year.  Leading up to taper week I was nothing but exhausted and hungry and just wanted to get the race over with.  Now that I am in my […]
