Alcatraz Qualifier, the San Diego Triathlon

Day 36: Doing hill climbs on the bike without hills

Another hot day and when I looked at my schedule this morning I cringed a little.  How in the world was I going to be able to bike with my legs in this condition?  That is an answer that would have to wait until after work.  I found a pretty nice route last week so […]

Day 35: These legs for made for swimming and my first sponsor

As I peddled off to the pool my legs felt like they were going to fall off.  After yesterdays bike ride I really had nothing left to give today.  It is actually good to have done that for two reasons.  The first being that I now fully understand what overworking the legs will do to […]

Day 34: Forty miles on the bike and excercise fever?

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
