First Endurance

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

People ask me this all the time: “What nutrition products do you use?”  And my answer has been the same for more than 10 years: everything First Endurance makes, pure and simple.

The follow-up question is always “why?”   So I typically go on and on about how their products are the most complete, balanced, clean, …

On Sunday July 28th,  I will have the pleasure of traveling to New Mexico to race the Cochiti Lake Triathlon.  Cochiti is a small town on Pueblo de Cochiti land, just south of Santa Fe, and it plays host to a small but venerable (and challenging!) triathlon.  When Angie from Chasing 3 Race Productions

Nine Years and Counting: The Ultimate Partner

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I’ve been racing Ironman for a long time now, and I’ve notched over thirty finishes so far.  I’ve been strong enough to win three of them, I’ve earned three national titles, and I’ve been able to find long-term success in Kona. But there was a time – and I remember it very vividly – when …

Twelve Days of Kona

Thursday, October 4, 2012

Ali'i Drive

I’ve raced in Kona twelve times, and in honor of my 13th go ’round (coming up on the 13th of Oct), I have decided to share a video memory from each past race.  I’ve started two days late, so we may have to bump a couple of two-for-ones on some days.  Thanks for tuning in, …

Irene's - Don't touch my dessert!

Due to last week’s race, the posting of Photo Friday got delayed by one week.  Following is the photographic evidence of last Friday’s activities in New Orleans.

Don’t touch my desserts!  Mine!

The bikes had toppled in the bed of the truck – living dangerously!

The bikes happily stationed in the Truck Bed.
