Race Report – 2021 Ironman 70.3 Musselman

I have wanted to do the Musselman Triathlon. I love the Finger Lakes region of New York and had heard it was a really cool local, privately-run triathlon to do. I had done other races in the Finger Lakes like the Peasantman and the Keuka Lake Triathlon and then they never disappoint. Of course Ironman …

Race Report: Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga 2019

When deciding on an early season 70.3 race this season, I chose Chattanooga since I thought would be good place for a Spring road trip vacation/race combo. We did a road trip down South last year with our dog Bentley which was fun, so we thought we would do it again. For our race base …

Race Report – 2018 Ironman Lake Placid

Ironman Lake Placid was my “A” races of the 2018 season. It was the perfect climax to my 5th IM finish as I turn 50 at the end of this year. It was also the 20th anniversary for IMLP and 40 years for Ironman as well. There was a lot of significant things that were all coming together. It would also be my last Iron-distance race.

2018 is Off…To A Less Than Stellar Start!

Bentley 2018_20180120_4042

I was looking forward to a big triathlon year in 2018. I move into a new age group this year and I would be heading back to Ironman Lake Placid for my 3rd time and hopefully my 5th Ironman finish. Unfortunately, things are not starting off well. We recently got a new Mini-Goldendoodle named Bentley …

Last season was a banner race year for me. Heading into Ironman Boulder I wasn’t sure if this would be a continuing trend or become more of a “hangover” season. Training for this race started early in December 2016, but after a nasty bout of bronchitis in February I lost a few good weeks that set …

IM Boulder Week 22 Wrap-Up – Down the Shore

Week 22 was the 2nd of two solid build weeks. At least it was supposed to be. The middle of the week a good blend of two-a-days mixing up some interval/tempo work with some easier Z2 workouts. I was feeling a little fatigued, but not too bad. Good enough to have some decent workouts with …

IM Boulder Week 21 Wrap-Up

Week 21 of training for Ironman Boulder 2017 is on the books. I can’t believe it is only 6 more weeks until race day. 5 months of training are behind me already. Although February was a bit of a wash, due to a pretty bad case of Bronchitis for a solid two weeks. March and …

My 2016 Year in Review – Topping My Charts

I have just returned from another fabulous Winter weekend in the Adirondacks to celebrate the New Year. While I was there I had gotten in some ample cross-training time skate-skiing, hiking and some photography. This outdoor time gave me a good amount of time to reflect upon the last year. I keep hearing others saying …

Ironman Mont-Tremblant 2016 Race Report-Perfect Execution

The alarm on my Garmin buzzed at 4:15am. I popped out of bed after a so-so night of sleep. Probably one of the better nights’ sleep before an Ironman event. I felt pretty rested and amazingly relaxed given I was about to be racing for ~12 hours. Hopefully less though. I was about to embark …
