TWO major takeaways Let’s get the excuses out of the way. Was the water cold? Oh yes. Was I cramping and disoriented on the second half? Yes. Did any of that add up to 30 minutes slower than my worst time over that distance? NO WAY! First, focus: In retrospect I had sort of approached the... Read More →
Sunday morning, Ironman race day finally here! This is what we’ve all been working towards since last fall. The water temperature has dropped sharply in the past few days, 55 degrees at race start time. Everyone starts from the beach, a mass start of 2500 athletes. Lots of kicking, swimming over,...

Staying in the “team house” just two blocks from the race start and expo. What a great way to really soak up the whole Ironman atmosphere and experience! Walking around the site, seeing others practicing, the expo and changing tents being set up – it’s a thrill. We had lots... Read More →
The key setup decision once I had committed to doing the three Trifecta triathlons was what organizations to have as beneficiaries.

Saturday marked what seems like the ‘real’ beginning of my Trifecta preparation – my first triathlon of the year, Rumpus in Bumpass, great name! To explain, the closest town is Bumpass Virginia. First, my reactions as I did the race: Swim, 0.9 miles: My swim seemed to take forever... Read More →
How is it that I get into an injury not even remotely related to triathlon training? How do you get bitten – on the face – by a very small dog? Yes, I accomplished that unusual feat yesterday. I was just doing an abs exercise, inside a training facility. However, a ‘visiting’,... Read More →
In an earlier post, I promised to explain “swimming in circles”. Here’s the story – As a child, I started my swimming by nearly drowning, swimming in circles. No, not a metaphor, I mean literally. Why? Because of a birth defect, my right arm is two inches shorter than my left,... Read More →
Shamrock Half marathon; final turn to the finishI’ve never met a target time on a running race. Not once. My coach, Michael, keeps saying ‘I know you can do this’. What’s in the way? My body, my brain, and the struggle of a race, that’s all. March 20, the Shamrock Half Marathon, first... Read More →
