I’m a firm believer in setting goals, both in my professional and personal life. I’m a good self-motivator, but having a goal for myself and telling others what my goals are gets me though those tough days. It’s risky, if I don’t accomplish my goal, then everyone knows. On the other hand, if I never […]
Today was my last day of training before Sunday’s triathlon. Tomorrow will be a rest day and I will probably run a little once I get to the race site to pick up my packet on Saturday. I spent 25 minutes in the pool this morning doing some interval work. 400 yard warm-up6 x 100 […]

Last long ride before next weekend’s race. Took White Lighting (that’s my bike) on a 40 mile ride this morning, followed by a 2 mile run. Doing two disciplines back-to-back is known as a “brick”. I wanted to practice the bike to run transition because to me, this is the most difficult part of a […]
Thought that I would create this blog so friends and family would be able to keep up with how my training and races are going. This might also be a useful tool for other multisport athletes looking for training idea’s. My plan is to post as often as possible so check back frequently.
