Getting in the swim of things

After the last race, and giving up all my time to the winner in the swim phase, I knew it was time to start beefing up the swim training. Yesterday I even swam twice! I swam with these guys first, for about 45 minutes total. These are little sunfish. I swam with these folks in the evening, for about 70 seconds total. These are summer rec league swimmers at our meet. Guess where I felt... Read More

Chasing Unicorns -Seaside Sprint Triathlon Report-

Last year I did this race as a backup after I crashed and burned at my first tri of the season the weekend before.  It was more of redemption race, and certainly wasn't planned.  I enjoyed it so much last year that I decided I would do it again this year.  The course suits me since it is completely flat and closed to traffic and I had a new confidence after my performance the week before at the Ri...

Woodways and Pools!

This post is related to the fact that: 1)  I have moved and live in Houston now and 2)  I now workout at Lifetime Fitness. Woohoo. Sometimes going to new gyms can be overwhelming, intimidating, or even upsetting. It is human for us to never be welcoming to "change". In my perspective, this concept can even be related to the places we work-out at and thus, trying to get use to new gyms! Think... Read More

Cort the Sport: Second at Bath County Sprint Triathlon

This weekend I raced in the Bath County Sprint Triathlon (my 18th triathlon) at Lake Moomaw near the Homestead Resort. To get there, you drive up a mountain, along a twisty, switchback road with no cell service ( or 3G...ACK !) through beautiful National Forest and rural farmlands. Then the name of the road suddenly change to “Sam Snead Highway” and golf greens and cart paths line both sides for... Read More

Cleveland Training Camp

OK, it wasn't a training camp per se, it was an eagerly anticipated visit with my sister and her family in the tranquil western suburbs along Lake Erie. But why not capitalize on a change of venue to swim/bike/run in a different place? At age 22, my nephew Evan has completed two respectable iron-distance races and I've longed for the opportunity to bike with him. Things just fell into place for th... Read More

Ridgefield Sprint Triathlon Race Report

This race has to be one of my favorites.  I started doing it 3 years ago and have done it every year since as a kickoff to my triathlon season.  The race is kind of unique as it is generally more of a family oriented/ first timers race but it is super competitive at the front of the race.  Going into the race I knew I was racing against a stacked field, so I was prepared to find out just how well ...

A Win at the Salem YMCA Sprint Tri

This is just the second year for the Salem YMCA Sprint Tri - 300y swim, 15k bike, 5k run. It's close to home and the local tri community turns out to race, volunteer, or watch and cheer making it a very nice event for newer triathletes and kids especially. A tremendous amount of work goes into putting on this triathlon and I expect it to continue to grow and draw more participants. It was the mai... Read More
