The Easiest, No-Bake Rich Dark Chocolate Tart and My So-Called Off Season

It’s been a little over three weeks since I raced in Hawaii. Even though the race was a disappointment and I chose to not run and took the DNF’ed instead, the trip there was absolutely amazing. Kona is a unique experience and practically the only race I’ve ever done […]

Two out of Three Ain’t Bad—Chattanooga 70.3 Worlds Race Report and What I’ve been eating Pre Race

Don’t worry, I’m not going to delve into a Meatloaf song—I’ve been more into “Yacht Rock” than “Rock Opera” these days anyway….Toto, Steely Dan and Hall & Oats anyone?

What do you eat before Training? Real Food For Fuel

A triathlete can (hopefully) only stomach so many bars, gels and tabs. I try to reserve most my intake of those necessities for racing and long training sessions. I prefer real foods and often field the question of “what do you eat before training?”

When your Iron (man) go south……..and Roasted Red Cabbage with Tahini Sauce

After stumbling through a foot issue late winter/early spring (initially thought to be a stress fracture but turned out to be autoimmune “AI” related), I turned my attention to training for Ironman Whistler in late July.   Throughout the training, I never felt quiet right.
