Season of Doing

I have enjoyed being updated on how the team has been doing. This is my off season and a time to focus on my business and family. It has been hard not to exercise and train like I want. I have been doing strength training and some running. The hardest is maintaining the weight. My goal over the winter is to lose about 7 lbs. Thanks Sip for the Burpee exercise. I have added that and my children are... Read More

Off Season Is Just A Bridge Between Dreams Fulfilled and Dreams Ahead

After winning my age group at Rev3 Anderson, SC, I decided to take a break from training for two weeks. The weather was changing, and I wasn't motivated to be training in the cold. I was healthy, injury free and won my last two races which was a great way to end the season. My body and my instincts were telling me that I had had enough and it was time to rest even though I had one more race schedu... Read More

Training while Traveling

The last four days I was 2200 miles away from home, in San Diego, California where Endurance Films Racing teammates Diane and Scott live and train. I was there for just 72 hours -- to present at a conference on teaching and learning -- but I still had to find time to fit in two runs of 15 and 5 miles  ( marathon prep ) and a swim. I knocked out the week's gym workouts before I left town. I ... Read More

REV3 Anderson, SC Olympic Triathlon Race Report

[gallery] On Friday, October 7th I picked up a load in Atlanta, Ga which I had to deliver in Norfolk, VA on October 10th. This gave me enough time to stop in Anderson, SC for the REV3 Series Finale. I found out about this race in a full page advertisement in one of the triathlete magazines. I noticed that it was sponsored by Pilot/Flying J, which is a major truck stop franchise, so I thought this... Read More

Morning ride in Southern California

This morning I did my first EVER trainer ride to a DVD. I was pretty skeptical and was not sure how this would hold my attention. It's the rare show or movie that I can actually sit through. No way it would motivate me. I braced myself for some boredom. Turns out, boredom didn't stand a chance. Usually my Coach prescribes the trainer workouts, I have to program them into my Garmin Edge, and then ... Read More

Race Report: Giant Acorn Sprint Triathlon

This sprint triathlon at Lake Anna, NW of Richmond, VA was a late addition to my race schedule. It was just one town over from Mineral, the epicenter of the recent earthquake. This was intended to be a low-key, fun, getaway wrap-up to the season with my friend Krista. Coach called it the “icing on the cake” race. I envisioned a relaxed little event with plenty of sunshine ( and maybe rainbows and ... Read More

Powerman Muncie Sprint Triathlon Race Recap

After Age Group Nationals in Burlington, VT I was motivated.

I met my training volume for the month and was running very well. My swimming has been good the last two weeks to. This had me thinking and visualizing my sprin... Read More
