Yoga, Tornadoes, Marshmallows, and a Game of Tag

Sunday, December 9, 2007

It would appear that I’ve fallen off the wagon… again. I always think I’m going to have more time in the off season to write on my blog, but that never seems to happen. Nonetheless, I’m back.

Yoga is always a part of my off season. I love the classes, I love how my body …

Hawaiian Ironman

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

Hawaii IronmanNow that I’ve had plenty of time to let the race sink in, I’m going to go ahead and write the race report. To those of you who checked in earlier, thanks for your patience.

As I managed a few posts prior to the race, I’ll try not to dwell on the details …

Ironman Hawaii!!

Ironman Hawaii!

Just thought I’d get on here to make a quick post to the blog. It’s been a quick but relaxing couple days since the race, with the only downside being that I’ve had zero internet time. For some reason, I’ve had not hotmail access, so the email replies have been behind… as the …

Lava Java

Monday, October 8, 2007

I have finally made it to Lava Java. We’ve spent a lot of time here in the past, but hadn’t made it down this year. Amanda decided she wanted to do a bit of shopping, so I left her downtown, and came up here to grab a delicious smoothie. It’s great to sit here in …

Days Three and Four

Finally I am posting a couple photos of the new Javelin Lugano. This bike is one fast machine, and I look forward to putting it to the test out on the Queen K next weekend. The next photo is from me at the start of my Energy Lab run.

Day 2 in Paradise!

Before I move on to today’s report, I have to point out the two highlights from yesterday. Highlight number one happened when I was enjoying my first ocean swim of the trip. There weren’t too many folks out there, as I had gone out a bit later in the morning. It …

I have arrived in Hawaii! The trip yesterday was very easy. I was actually surprised at how smoothly things seemed to be going. I woke up nice and early to finish packing, while Amanda was out doing her early morning track workout. By nine o’clock, I was just about done, which meant I had …

Checking in..

Monday, September 24, 2007

After my last post about how great the weather has been here in Boulder, we experienced another four days of perfect weather. We were lucky enough to have plenty of sunshine, and even a good bit of wind to help with the Hawaiii preparation. Today, on the other hand, is our first really crappy day …

Just Training

Wednesday, September 19, 2007

We are having the most incredible September here in Boulder. We’ve been experiencing the most beautiful weather these past few days. We got a bit of scare on Monday when we woke up to overcast skies and rain, but it only lasted until about 10:30 in the morning.

Today Amanda and I got up early …

Half-Ironman & Training

Sunday, September 16, 2007

This morning started VERY early in the Lovato Household. Four o’clock was when the first alarm sounded. I made sure Amanda was awake, and promptly pulled the pillow right back over my head. I needed another hour. It was time for the Gillamster to get up, however, as she was heading out to Aurora to …
