Grueling probably best describes my day racing MiTitanium Iron Distance race Sunday. I'm going to talk about the heat. I'll mention the wind, the darkness, hills and road construction. But the real reason I didn't have a good outing was because I didn't really train for this race like I should have. I hardly swam … Continue reading Michigan Titanium Race Report
I've written about the balance of fitting triathlon training in to an already busy schedule, but as my work situation has changed it's actually gotten a little harder.

I thought my swim was going to help but I was wrong. As far as swimming goes I had a swim … Continue reading 5 months to go!

We did it, after 8 months of training Adam and I finished our 1st marathon. It wasn't easy to do. Finding time to train, work, rest and have a life was more difficult and stressful than I ever imagined.Despite that, we both enjoyed the whole experience so much that even before 10-10-10 we were talking … Continue reading What race is next?
