I’m Back!

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

I’m back! I realize it’s been three months since the last update, and most of you have likely stopped checking in on my blog, but hey, I’m back. I went through a slump… for writing, that is. I’m back now.

My first update is right smack in the middle of my Hawaii prep! I meant …

Boulder Peak Triathlon!

Monday, July 24, 2006

The “to race, or not to race” question was answered on Friday morning, when I finally realized I should get off the fence, and race the local event. I had been deliberating for a while, as I wasn’t sure I’d be rested enough to race, or if I’d be smart racing back-to-back weekends (with Vineman …

Pain Bank Account

Tuesday, July 18, 2006

Bob Roll is talking about the Pain Bank Account. The Tour de France is on, and today’s stage is one of the most famous: Alpe d’Huez. Bob Roll is a funny man with a funny vocabulary; a funny way of expressing himself. And right now he’s talking about the Pain Bank Account. It started me …

Beach Bum Triathlon

Friday, July 7, 2006

As you can tell from the photo, the Beach Bum triathlon is a triathlon that takes place right there on the beach. And I don’t mean that only the swim and run take place there; the whole darn thing, bike included, is right there on the beach. Fortunately for us, the beach sand is very …

Here is a photo from the Beach Bum Triathlon. This shot is post-race with a fellow named Jack Felix. He’s only 12 now, but he’s one heck of a triathlete. Be sure to remember his name, because you’re sure to see him down the road, in whatever sport he chooses to pursue.

Thanks very much …

Hilton Head Island, SC

Sunday, July 2, 2006

I got the opportunity to come to Hilton Head Island, SC this weekend for a fun trip. The goal was to chat with the local triathletes, to do a fun race, and to visit with my sister, Steph, and her beau, Huggy Bear Hays. I had a lot of fun with the crew from Go …

Those race initials always remind me of a sandwich. But what would the “S” be?

As promised, I’m getting to the Lubbock race report, and only a week late. Normally I’d be two weeks late, so this is progress. Depending on how long this takes, I might even offer up a second race report, …

Remember when you learned about foreshadowing in your English class way back when? Remember? It was that thing that happened early in the story; that thing that happened once, and you might not even have paid any attention to it. Remember? It was that thing that happened once, only to be relived again, in another …

So Much Stuff!!

Wednesday, June 21, 2006

Ok, I’ve fallen so far behind that I don’t know where to begin. I know I promised a Bolder Boulder report; there is a Stroke and Stride report to give; and then there’s the second Stroke and Stride race; plus, there is the Lafayette Wine Festival 5k report to give. Where to begin?!?!

I think …
