Oceanside 70.3 Race Report

Race Plan This past Saturday was my third time at Oceanside 70.3 in three years, but first time crossing the finish line.  In 2014 I was there to spectate and in 2015 I raced the unofficial aquabike (coming off of a calf injury) so it was a real nice experience, despite what may follow, to be…

Bungalow Girl

It’s difficult to explain the Bungalow to an outsider for the joy and misery it has brought me over the years.  It is the quintessential LA experience, $11 beers, ocean sunset views, upscale atmosphere, Ray Bans, perfect hair and absurd cleavage.  Full of the most beautiful people imaginable with the ugliest of personalities.  You’re likely…

Desert Triathlon Race Report

The Desert Triathlon is a great early season race opportunity in beautiful Palm Springs during a very unpredictable and tumultuous time of year.  In 2015 Saturday’s Sprint fell during a wind storm and Sunday’s Olympic was a wash out (which made things difficult considering I was camping).  I hoped things might be different this time but unfortunately…

Habits

Yesterday I heard a segment on the radio concerning bad habits that are toxic in relationships and it got me reflecting a bit on the habits I’ve picked up with training, good, bad as well as those that could come across either way depending on how you look at it (so like me to make…
