Final workouts before the race

Am I ready?  Heck yes!  You think everybody else is ready for me to smoke them on my mountain bike?  Probably not and I probably won’t be smokin’ anybody but I am looking forward to trying! I have not blogged in the past couple of days as it has been busy at work and I have […]

Weekend race anticipation

I am heading into this weekend mentally and physically prepared… or as much as I can be.  This last week of training has kind of been all over the place but I have been able to keep up what I think is a decent schedule. I took Tuesday as my day off as that was […]

Nothing like an open water swim

It was my day off but I could not pass up the opportunity to get in the open water and take advantage of an outing by the Try-A-Tri group!  Last time I did this we had very rough seas.  Today, well, smooth as glass.  Four of us showed up for this workout and we headed […]

Big weekend workout with new personal best achieved

This weekend was a tough but a very productive weekend!  It all started bright and early Saturday morning.  I headed on the bike towards Ft. Lauderdale at about 6:15am and arrived down near the 17th St. bridge about 45 minutes later to meet up with some friends for a nice easy beach ride.  My goal […]

Too wet to swim, big bike & transitions

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

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...)
