Today is Page One of 2018 and I think it's time to dust this blog off... its musty in here. This is just going to be a quick run down of the plans for my season and the future of this page. It's the beginning of a new year and like most people, I tried … Continue reading Chapter 36. Page 1
I can't honestly remember that last time I put in a full week of training. But this past week changed that. With only 20 weeks until Ironman Louisville I knew I had to make some changes. There were constant mental battles to talk myself into actually doing the workouts. Each session felt like it was … Continue reading One week down, 19 to go!
Welp... Once again I decided to start a big race with very little taining. I remember nearly a year ago discussing this race with Adam. He was giving me the usual hard time to register and meet him in San Diego for another 70.3.While we were arguing about discussing the details I was actully sitting on … Continue reading IM Oceanside 70.3 didn’t completely backfire. But it was close!
It’s been a while since I ran, trained, raced or blogged. So this week I attempted to remedy all of that. Waaaaaaaay back in April (I think) I registered for the Disney Marathon. Other than making travel and dinner reservations, that was probably the last time I thought about the race. I was really excited … Continue reading Disney Marathon Race Report
It's been so long since I've been on this site, that I forgot my password to login! I've been busy. Since when is that a valid excuse for not working out? ... It's not. But that hasn't stopped me from using it for the last year. Between working on my startup RentSpek, working part time … Continue reading The wrong kind of PR
No, I'm not talking about a race. And I don't see my waiter coming from across the restaurant (though that is always exciting). I'm talking about the Startup I've been working on since August 2012. Landlord Advisor was an idea I had sitting on the shelf for a while before I took a run at … Continue reading So close I can taste it.
With Michigan Titanium behind me, I've starting going over how I trained (or didn't train) for the race. After having completed Ironman Wisconsin the year before, my thought was that some missed runs, rides or swims will not make or break my chances of crossing the finish line. That mentality is what led to my … Continue reading Simulated Coaching
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
There is just a little more than two months (66 days to be exact) before my "A" race, Michigan Titanium or MiTi. I reached out to the race directors/owners to see if I could get a little more info on what to expect race weekend. Ann Vidro, Race co-owner, took some time to Skype with my about … Continue reading A look into Michigan Titanium
