Do you need a coach?  That is a question I get a lot when discussing triathlon and running.  As an RRCA certified coach I always say yes because I want them to become clients and pay me gobs of money......just kidding its not gobs.  Seriously though I say it is up to you on whether or not you need that motivation from a coach, that positive reinforcement or are just too busy to put together a proper plan. For me the latter of those three is the reason I still have a coach after two years.  Running 3 businesses, having a family and friend...

[caption id="attachment_5979" align="alignright" width="259" caption="Guess Karen's Time at the RnR San Diego 1/2 Mary To Win"][/caption] As you know - I am not a big fan of race belts on the run.  They tend to ride up on me and end up sitting under my chest like an oversized heart rate monitor... not good for race pictures but awesome for a laugh. I thought it would be good to invent something simple that could carry my fuel, and my keys and any money.. and of course the same week I came up with this brilliant idea, I saw the RooSport...

[caption id="attachment_5973" align="alignright" width="275" caption="What You See In The Mirror Today Will Not Reflect The Person You Were.....Thank You Triathlon!"][/caption] I was perusing Facebook and came across two posts in my timeline that got me thinking about how I got to where I am today and how I got started in this lifestyle.  It has been an unbelievable journey and it amazes me that it has just started.  Along the way I have met and spoken to some of the nicest people.  I have made lifetime friendships through this sport and...

[caption id="attachment_5968" align="alignright" width="270"] A Simpler Equation Has Yet To Be Written[/caption] Ironman Texas is now over a week old and while I am still basking in the glory and greeting everybody I see with Hi, I'm Jason and I'm an Ironman it is time to let it go and focus on the future.  In order for me to focus on the future I need to have understood the past so as not to repeat the errors I made along the way.  I would normally have written this post the day after the event but I wanted to marinate on what went right ...

Ironman Texas is now in the rear view mirror but I am going to bask in the glow of the accomplishment for the next week or so.  And I say that because I realized yesterday thanks to KC and Summer that Ironman Arizona is 25 weeks away.  I'm not sure what Coach has planned for a training cycle but if it is 22-23 weeks like Ironman Texas that means that training will pick up here in a few weeks.  The best part is that about halfway through the training cycle I will be heading to Maine for Rev3OOB to meet Jen,MattyO and Heather, Laura and Mandy....

Ironman Texas - Swim Recap can be found here. Ironman Texas - Bike Recap can be found here. ========================================== After telling Scott I felt great it was time to head to the Run Gear bags.  I yelled out my number and the volunteer pointed me to where it was.  I ran down there and was handed my bag and toward the changing tent I went.  I noticed that not everybody was running into the changing tent and I thought to myself why would I go in there.  I can slip on my shoes (I had removed my feet from my cycling sho...

Ironman Texas swim recap was posted yesterday and so we will pick up the story where that left off. ==================== I got out of the water and up the stairs and saw the clock read 1:34:xx.  I then heard somebody say:  There goes Jason Bahamundi and I turned around and thanked them but had no clue who they were.  I then saw Susan Lacke (whom I met on Thursday night and was everything and more than I thought she would be.  Thank you for spending time with me on Thursday and again on Saturday after the race....see you at IMAZ.) who...

Ironman Texas was an incredible day all around.  I cannot say it enough but this day was exciting, fun, phenomenal, inspiring, motivating, intense and a just a great time. In case you do not know I finished the race in 11:59:51 and for every second of that day I smiled.  There was never a moment when I thought of quitting or slowing down on the bike, or walking on the run or floating on my back in the swim.  The day did not go exactly as planned but what Ironman race does?  As I write each section of this extra long race report I will ge...

Ironman Texas starts in 2 hours 10 minutes and I am in the hotel room on my BlackBerry reviewing my race plan. I even wrote it on my hands so I don't go acting like a Jackass and ruin the day. I have so many people to thank for getting me to this point that if I forget somebody please don't be mad it is 4:50a. Karen - my wife has been the definition os support throughout this journey. Without her this doesn't happen. Coach Claudia - your training plan, your inspiration and motivation are second to none. Sponsors - Herbalife, CorePower, So...

Asparagus and Macaroni Salad is interrupting the regularly scheduled story of Ironman Texas today.  I had another post ready to go but then I went to Food Republic and saw this picture on the site and immediately thought.....I need to repost that and let people know about this recipe. This recipe couldn't be any easier than what you see.  For those of us who don't eat cheese I am planning on substituting Nutritional Yeast for the Goat Cheese but seriously this looks so good and I hope you make it and let me know what you thought of it...
