Timberman 70.3

Monday, September 3, 2007

Timberman 70.3 was over two weeks ago, so, as usual, I’m a bit behind with the race reporting. I’ll not bother to apologize for the delay, as it’s obviously the norm now.

I traveled to New Hampshire with Simon and his friend Alan. We had a pretty uneventful trip to Boston, and the drive up …

It turns out that running like a hamster is pretty hard work. I knew this at the time, but I didn’t know just how hard it was, or how much it was hurting me. After my trip to Chicago, I tried to jump back into some quality training here in Boulder. I found out pretty …

Big Update

Wednesday, August 1, 2007

Whoa! Now I’m back to my evil ways… no updates for an entire month! I have to say that this was totally unintentional: go figure! I’m here again, and I just wanted to thank you, the faithful, for checking in, despite my lack of updates.

I do realize that many of you have been keeping …

Ironman Coeur d’Alene

About five days have passed since the race up in Idaho, and I thank you all for tuning in for my report. I apologize for the delay, but I decided to take a bit of a step back before writing the report. I know I’m not the most prompt and timely person,


Sunday, June 3, 2007

OK, I just had to get on here to post a quick shout out to all of my faithful readers, before you all lose faith! I’m here, I’m happy, and I’m healthy. I have been doing a mini-build for Ironman Coeur d’Alene, and it’s taking a bit of my down time from me… in other …

Florida 70.3 Race Report

Ok, so there was not a lot of singing and dancing around the old Real World House on Sunday night. The only true post-race highlights and excitement were centered around a heated match of mini golf between Luke and Lucy Bell and me. I ended up with the big-fat third place …

Upcoming Florida 70.3 Race

Saturday, May 19, 2007

I’m out here in Florida for the 70.3 race which is tomorrow. I’ve been here since Wednesday evening, and have been enjoying myself as a guest in a seven-bedroom rental house in Kissimmee. I’m not too far from the Wide World of Disney, and I am lucky enough to have some fun roommates here at …


Sunday, May 13, 2007

Oops, I’ve done it again. I did not mean to let two weeks go by, but it seems I have done just that. After returning from Idaho, I jumped right back into some short, speedy training, and I am pretty sure the upped intensity is mostly to blame for my lack of posts. At least …

Multisports Ironman Coeur d’Alene training camp!

What a fun weekend I’ve just had up in Idaho. The folks at Multisports were kind enough to invite me back to one of their entertaining and imformative Ironman training camps, after my first attempt at being camp counselor back in Tempe in February. That weekend was full of …

Some Down Time

Tuesday, April 24, 2007

I’m now in the middle of my second week of post-ironman workouts, or lack of workouts. I’ve really enjoyed tending to other duties, and making my way slowly through the days with no real urgency or plan.

I will be returning to a normal routine next Monday, and this weekend promises to be fun, as …
