The days (and weeks) leading up to my first IM 70.3 had me sick with fear. So many things to worry about. So many details that could go wrong. So doubtful of my training and abilities. So many opportunities for embarrassment, frustration and disappointment. So much time and money spent (wasted?).
Then, after I got on the shuttle bus in Waikoloa, Hawaii, heading to the Fairmont Orchid for the mandatory pre-race meeting, I looked up to see the Poster Child for Triathlons…Continue
3:45am alarm ~~~ snooze for 10 minutes.
4am time to get up and start moving!
Breakfast= Wheaties Fuel, Powerbar, cup of coffee
Bag was packed from the night before but I still double checked it anyway. Hopped in the car with the boys to head off to transition. It was so quiet you would have thought we were Roman soldiers going to battle the barbarians. As we pulled up to the race area, the streets were so empty we started wondering if the race was…Continue

Breakfast: 5:15 1/2 cup oatmeal w natural peanut butter and 1 banana
Walk over to transition- 10 minutes away
Transition: Realized I had about 30 minutes to get my stuff set up in transition but also had to go to bathroom...so I set up transition quickly and then headed over to porta potty lines. Thank goodness I did because the lines took forever! I was standing…
Over the past 8 seasons of this silly little hobby called triathlon, one of the intriguing consistencies has been Eagleman.
Always heard stories about eagleman but it just never seemed to fit my season sched or really intrigue me enough. I think I might have been intimidated by the swim,, namely the…Continue
theres no better way to kick off a 70.3 than waking up in a dingy hotel room at 4:50am with paul goldstone. we drove down on saturday for the pre-race registration and bike racking, and got in a little ride, run, and swim at the venue. the water was a little bit choppy saturday but my nerves were calmed by getting in there before the race start. i had been nervous about a no-wetsuit 1.2 in the river but felt confident after getting out there. its more like a bay than a river and, if there…Continue

I had a blast
Saturday Philadelphia Amateur Time Trial 8mi 00:24 20.0mph pace
They call it the race of Truth. here are truths I unearthed today.
1. It's a blast to try something new that scares the crap out of you 2. I should really work on my core exercises before putting on a tight tri top 3. Time trials are fun 4. being passed on by 4 other riders does not make feel good 5. passing a 14yr old rider in a time trial does not make feel any…Continue

Just a quick note to all to use common sense and be ready for the heat. Here are a few reminders that will help allow you to train through the hot hot hot summer.
By all means, DO continue to train. Remember that training in adverse conditions for sure makes us better rounded and prepared for the great unknown of what mother nature will dole out on any given race day. But use common sense: it's free and almost always right.
