Ironman Arizona 70.3 Race Report

Biggest take away from this past weekend “perhaps you’re stronger than you think”.  It’s easy among the monotony of balancing Ironman overload with a full-time job and attempting to maintain a reasonable social life on top of it to question “am I fit” as feelings of fatigue and mental burn out start creeping in.  I…

2017 Ironman 70.3 World Championships

It took some distance and time for reflection before being able to put down in writing my feelings from this past weekend at the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Chattanooga.  I set my sights on this race over a year ago when I missed qualifying at Vineman 70.3 by just 30 seconds, having only 3…

A Note to All the Singles

It’s been a little while since I put anything down in writing, and perhaps that’s a good thing, a sign that life has been firing on all cylinders, but a recent turn of events has left me lower than my typical feel good self.  A forced few week training hiatus has provided some unanticipated yet…

St George Race Report

Obsessed is Just a Word

“3 more medals” a runner yells to a volunteer, “a husband, a wife and one other”… It’s 5pm, just about 10 hours since the start of the 32nd LA marathon and in that time I’ve cheered on racers and friends along the course, gone home to eat and take a nap, and am now out on…

2017 Desert Triathlon

I’d like to consider myself a Designer by profession but my roots still lie in Engineering, math and science, and as such I’ve always been one for stats (HR, pace, watts) because I speak numbers but more importantly in a sport fed by suffering in the name of grandeur, often to the regard of seconds, it’s…

2017 Mission Statement

Inspiration Looking forward to 2017 I thought it fitting to start with some of the my greatest motivational influences from this past year – I feel fortunate to have been surrounded by so many high functioning accomplished individuals.  The bar has been raised high!! Balance Perhaps my greatest challenge in athletics as well as in life.  With a continued desire…
