Kona is back to quiet again. Went for a run with the dogs down Alii Drive today and yes, there were many runners, walkers and people in the water; enjoying the active lifestyle of life in Hawaii. But the our little town is much quieter than last week with the excitement of Ironman and all the events and…Continue

Roughly 10 days ago I completed my first marathon. It was a great end to a great 2011 racing season. I ran completely within my abilities and managed to pull off a great time of 3:33:10 for my first! I was so pumped and still am. There still may be a 10k left in me sometime this fall, but as far as structured training goes I am done until next year. I am going to focus on building more strength and work on some swimming/cycling techniques. Also, this past week I joined up with a local…Continue

I have been keeping a blog of my thoughts as I go towards Ironman #2. I thought the one I just wrote was a good one for those of us winding down our training for Ironman Florida. If you have a moment to kill I hope you enjoy.
OK, finally, in between all the moving, supervising contractors, getting kids adjusted to school, racing and trying to find a tri-club - and after a really long time - here's the tri-strides newsletter again :) Enjoy!

Skimming through his book Racing Weight by Matt Fitzgerald prompted me to write this blog post. Do you ever find yourself swimming, running or cycling to lose weight? Or does weight loss come as a bonus to exercise? The question I get asked a lot is…Continue

Question: how much time do you spend swimming, biking and running? How much did your wetsuit, bike and numerous running shoes cost you? Obviously people put forth an amazing amount of time and effort, let alone dollars for equipment, training, travel and the actual races, yet I am SO suprised at how little (most) people put into their nutrition or supplementation.
Coming from the bodybuilding world has opened my eyes to the drastic difference in supplement knowledge. I'm not saying…Continue
Another half, marking the end of my 2011 season. The race started at 10:35, my boys did the 1.2km run at 10:40, and wanted to walk home while their parents still labored on the hills and in the late summer heat.
So we went to the race site, to be stopped and have our already picked up race bibs exchanged. Every 8?? number got something else, only Martin, who didn't have a bib yet, got spared. Then some warm up - oh my this area is hilly. Then race start. The race began with a solid…Continue
