Post-Ironman Week

A week of rest; a week of wine; a week of productivity; and, without a doubt, a week of fun! It’s been almost a week since we raced IM Arizona, and I feel I’ve accomplished quite a bit.

After returning from Tempe on Tuesday, Amanda and I jumped right back into the chores …

Thursday, April 19, 2007

Ironman Arizona race report.

Yes, this is a photo of me on race morning. And yes, this is the outfit I chose to wear for defense of my title. And yes, it does have a large sausage on the front.

Ok, no it’s not. The truth is that after much positive response to the unveiling

More Splish

Wednesday, April 11, 2007

We have arrived in Tempe! It’s great to be here, and we’re really excited to be back in the warmth!

After quite a positive response to Amanda’s online poll on her blog, I am posting a quick look at a possible race outfit of mine. Courtesy of Splish, here is my back and my front.…

Off to Arizona

Monday, April 9, 2007

Amanda and I are off to Arizona tomorrow evening. I know I’m really looking forward to racing, and I am pretty sure Amanda’s just as excited. We’ve packed just about everything but the bikes, and we’ll take care of that tomorrow! And by “we” I mean “I” will pack the bikes. Ha!

I’ll try to …

The Long Run!

Sunday, March 18, 2007


I love long runs. When the fitness begins to come around, and the tolerance for the longer miles starts to add up, I love running long. I have a few great loops here in Boulder, and I’ll generally alternate them in an Ironman build. This year I did a long run down …

Austin Pics

Saturday, March 10, 2007

I’m trying to go in order, that way I feel like I did this the proper way. I realize this was over three weeks ago, but I wanted to share these fun photos I took while I was down in Austin. One day, while doing one of my favorite rides, I spotted a Texas flag …

Fitting a Bike

Saturday, March 10, 2007

Ok, I’m realizing that I so far behind that I might not catch up. I’m a bit bummed I didn’t make time to post this stuff sooner, but I’m living by the better-late-than-never motto!

I mentioned that I went to Austin for a bit of training. During my preparation for Arizona last year, I had …
