Catching up

Monday, June 5, 2006

It would appear that I have some catching up to do. It would appear that Amanda is a much better blogger than I. It would appear that I have yet to tell about the calf contest I entered last week.

So, I thought I’d boost my moral after a true lack of performance in Baja. …

I definitely have some catching up to do. At this point, I have three updates to post, and I’m going to just take it one at a time. Yes, I should’ve had the Mexico report up sooner, but better late than never.

Amanda and I had quite the adventure last weekend, as we traveled to …

Just Racing

Sunday, May 14, 2006

I’m trying. I’m really trying. If I try a little harder, I might actually get to the blog postings more than once per week. But then again, with my long-windedness, maybe it’s better I only post once in a while.

Sitting here at the end of a fun week, I am looking back at what …

It’s been awhile..

Monday, May 8, 2006

Ok, I thought that the extra time off was going to afford me a bit of time to update the blog more regularly, but it would appear that was an incorrect assumption. It seems that the more time I have to lie around on the couch, the more time I spend lying around on the …

My sis

Friday, April 14, 2006

In other news, my sister Stephanie has recently undergone the White Coat ceremony at South University, where she is studying to become a physician assistant. I’m very proud of her, and as usual, she has notched straight A’s in her first quarter!http://online2.southuniversity.edu/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=63&Itemid=1…

The Ironman Arizona Race Report

Thursday, April 13, 2006

I never have understood how most folks seem capable of putting together race reports within hours of finishing their events. I never even understand how they get them done within a day or two. I always find that I need a few days to let it all sink in, to process things, and to sift …

An Ironman win at Arizona!

An Ironman win at Arizona!

I thought I’d throw that out there… even though I’m not quite prepared with my race report, I am dangerously close to being ready. I wanted to jump on here and send a quick reply to all of you who have emailed me congratulatory notes. I appreciate them quite a …

Ironman 70.3

Sunday, March 19, 2006

The race season is officially under way. I raced the California Ironman 70.3 race yesterday, also known as a half ironman. Not sure why they can’t call it a half ironman; it’s supposed to be about not making finishers feel less adequate than the finishers of a 140.6 Ironman.

Forecasts were for rain all morning, …

Just Training

Monday, March 13, 2006

After returning from North Carolina, Boulder was hit with a series of early Spring/ late Winter storms. We’ve been pretty lucky with the witner so far, but it’s now the snowy month, and it looks like we’re in for it! It seems that 2006 has been characterized by warm temps with high winds, or calm …

North Carolina

Wednesday, March 8, 2006

Last weekend was a fun one, as Amanda and I traveled out to North Carolina to participate in a clinic put on by Inside-Out Sports. One of Amanda’s sponors for the past few years, and a defacto sponsor of mine–thanks, Cid!–the Cary-NC-based tri shop brought us out to help with this one-day clinic. The local …
