Here We Go!

Friday, January 5, 2007

Here we go, here we go, here we GO! I’m really doing it this time. I know these are my famously unbelievable words, but this time I’m really trying. I’m going to blog a couple times a week. Nothing too over-the-top, nothing to fancy; just a few updates.

Here we go.

It’s the fifth day …

It’s That Time of Year…

Thursday, November 16, 2006

It’s that time of year again! The time of year where I sit around a lot, take care of things I have neglected for the last several months, and I… write on my blog! Ok, so I haven’t been doing that, but this is the goal: to establish a posting routine, so that come spring …

Thank you

For those of you who are checking in for the Hawaii Ironman report, scroll down a bit further, and you’ll find it. I just wanted to send out a big, fat THANK YOU to all of you who sent me good luck notes, and well-wishing before the race. I’ve been away from the computer a …

Friday, October 27, 2006

I’m finally back home in Boulder, and I’ve finally found my way to the computer, so I thought I’d send out the initial race report… who am I kidding? As long as I’m reporting, I might as well give the blow-by-blow version. Sit back and grab some popcorn, ’cause here I go:

In Kona

Monday, October 16, 2006

Earthquakes and dolphins are on my mind. I’m here in Kona, and have finally found my way to a wireless hotspot for an update. Thanks for being patient and for checking in again.

Yesterday’s tremors work me up from a sound sleep. At first I thought it was a violent thunderstorm, as we’ve been having …

New Equipment for Hawaii

Saturday, October 7, 2006

As long as I’m posting photos, I thought that I’d show you all a couple of fun pieces of equipment I’ll be using in Hawaii. First, the kind folks at Saucony have created a custom pair of shoes for me. These are a standard pair of their triathlon-specific shoe, the Type A, but with a …

On a bike..

Saturday, October 7, 2006

The past several days have been fun for me. As the taper progresses, I have found myself entering the phase where I am really enjoying a boost in energy. And with a boost in energy comes a boost in blog posts!

First off, I wanted to post a picture I took today while riding with …

Really.. I’m Back.

Monday, October 2, 2006

For those of you who don’t believe that I’m really back, I’m here now to prove you wrong… or to prove myself right. I keep telling myself that I’m back, so that I’ll really be back.

I’m on a Roll!

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

Watch out: I’m on a roll! I just wanted to add a few more thoughts, to prove that I’m really back.
