Reports

End of Season recap

Well… I usually will post some sort of race report within the week of the race. I mean, it’s interesting (to me) to read reports right after the fact, but months later, eh… So the bottom line is, I wasn’t good enough and didn’t do everything right to be on the podium at Chattanooga, or…

Challenge Atlantic City- 3rd Overall

This weekend I raced in Atlantic City, NJ, in the first Challenge event in the US. It was a full Iron distance race, a good prize purse ($50,000), and a good course for me (flat, windy), so I was pretty excited to race. The weekend before the event, I got a pretty nasty cut on…

Subaru Shawnigan Lake (or Ironman 5150?) 2nd OA

Well, another race report, right in a row. I was feeling a bit low after Texas. If you read the last report, it wasn’t my fitness, more of my mental state.  I also had a bit of a concern with how I felt off the bike. I mean, rationally, I knew why I was so…

New website, race report, IM Texas

Well, its been a while, but I usually keep these to race reports. If you’re reading, you’ve obviously noticed the new website. I figured it would be nice to have one location for all triathlon related “stuff.” Anyway, last season left off with a pretty positive note, a solid race in Florida, coming off a…

The first risk is entering the competition itself — choosing to compete.  Everyone has his own personal threshold where the benefits of competing outweigh the fears.” -Po BronsonMan, this has been a tough blog to write.  Not that I don’t want to,…

If you’re injured, don’t play; if you play, you’re not injured.”    -Pancho Segura     Steelhead was a race that was on the schedule when I was originally focusing on points for the 70.3 World Championships in Vegas.  As the season goes forward, and…

Subaru Vancouver 1/2 2nd Overall-3:54:53

 “Mental toughness is learned. It’s not a skill that everyone has, or is born with. There are people that are born tougher than others mentally, or figure things out earlier in their life. But if you have motivation you can acquire mental toughness, it’s just about what your body gets used to putting up with”…

Confidence- Eagleman 70.3 and looking forward

Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward.   -Hebrews 10-35   I recently found this written on an index card.  A friend had given it to me when I left LSU to go try and be a Pro Triathlete.  That was 12 years ago, I just saw it again last…

Florida 70.3, in pictures

I’ve had a bit of trouble figuring out what to write for Florida 70.3. It was a race I put on the schedule mainly because we were traveling there for family stuff anyway (Sarah’s brother’s graduation), so the race in the area worked out well. It was a bit hectic leading into the race, but…

New Orleans 70.3 — 3:59:53

 “we came here to live life like nobody was watching….  Learned from that failure, gained humility, and then we keep marching”“expectations are resentments waiting to happen”                                                 -Macklemore and Ryan Lewis    Maybe a…
