Ironman Coeur d’Alene

On 9 July 2013 By

I was up by 4am and awoke after a fairly sound 5-6 hour night of sleep. I felt good, had a bit of tightness but it dissipated very quickly. I had a normal breakfast (Greek nonfat yoghurt with honey, nuts and granola, along with OJ) with a VIA coffee and we all departed for the […]

3, 2, 1…

On 21 April 2013 By

This has been an interesting and very surprising recent few weeks. I have raced three times over four weeks to kick off my 2013 race season (proudly wearing my Team BSR colors!) and there were many question marks going into this season (primarily around my Achilles).

First up was the XTERRA Camp Eagle where I […]

What a pain in my legs

On 29 March 2013 By

Sometimes you just don’t know when a tiny little bit of discomfort is the beginning of a real problem, and if you are me, you should know. Well, back in September of 2012, I began to feel a bit of discomfort in both or one of the other Achilles when I would start running.  It […]

We arrived on Maui on a week before the race (Monday) and my goal for the week was to pre-ride the course twice, run the course once and swim most every day for 30-45min while getting used to using the new Garmin 910xt.  Our trip was uneventful and the bike arrived with no issues as […]

A long time coming

On 21 August 2012 By

As I was uploading my training and reviewing the work I have done over the recent weeks, I noticed that my run and bike volume looked pretty respectable. Not the 2007-2009 kind of respectable, but considering the injury in 2010 and it was pretty reading. I have gotten back to a pre-injury training level (bike […]

Swim – I decided to slot myself slightly towards the back of the main group near the left buoy, and was able to start swimming just before the gun went off, making a good start.  It quickly got congested and some of the normal chaos ensued, but I felt pretty strong and soon found some […]

XTERRA World Championships 2011

On 30 October 2011 By

A few days after returning from competing in the XTERRA USA Championships, I was working away late one afternoon, when I got an email that said ‘congratulations on your qualification to the 2011 XTERRA World Championships, to be held on 23 October 2011 in Kauplua, Maui.  Holy shit!  I was totally caught off guard as […]

This is my third race of this crazy hot summer and my first where the outcome made a difference to anything but my ego.  I came into this race with a slight chance of getting enough points to qualify for XTERRA USA Championships in my hometown of Ogden, Utah where I had a miserable race […]
