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?

“You look really good in that race photo” (said no one…….EVER) and Eating Clean

Yesterday was the Thursday morning before Saturday’s Kona Ironman and the infamous “Underpants” Run took place.   I joke that some of the amateur athletes diet and “train” more for this 1.2 mile Strut Your Stuff  run down Ali’i Drive than they do for the actual race–extra ab workouts, low […]
