At it again!
So far this year, I've focused on weight loss, some swim lessons, and I joined a Tri Club Class at the Y. Importantly, I finally broke a weight loss barrier that had been a hurdle for a dozen years... and I'm so happy about that! I haven't done many events this year, and after a long break, I tackled my first tri of the 2012 season...…Continue

One of the few local-ish, early season races that I had not yet at all attended, is Devil-man. That is, until this past weekend, Saturday, 5-5-2012.
For some reason, Devil-man has just never appealed to me, while reports of the swim and course in general have always been less than favorable.
- Dave M. WON overall.
(I'll Never forget asking Dave what was…Continue
Whats up MyTri folks. Hopefully everybody is well into their training plans for the year and having fun. For me, i am training for my first 140.6 and things are goin pretty well. In early March, i locked up the brakes and wound up with a dislocated shoulder which sidelined me (sort of) for a week or two. as i mounted my comeback, i was struck with gratitude for the ability just to participate. over the past few years, i have joined with Paul in fundraising for the MS society through his…Continue

Alright, I'm going to do it. I've been thinking about it and wondering if I would regret going public with this goal... but it's time to shout it from the mountain!
My goal for the New Year is to log 2,012 miles in an effort to Stop MS. Miles count towards this goal as long as I power the mile myself - running, walking, cycling, elliptical... it counts! I'd like to have as high of a running percentage as I can towards this goal... this is going to be quite a challenge!

What an awesome race! I gave it everything I had: physically, mentally, emotionally I was 100% engaged in the experience. I have been working on a long term goal of breaking 4:00:00 in a marathon for over a year. I wasn't necessarily aiming to do it in Philly, but lined up with the 4:00 pacers just in case it was "my day." I've been dealing with some issues that have been holding me back from meeting the goal, and after my last marathon attempt (first DNF... dropped out at 23.8 which was…Continue
I started running in July of 2010 and ran my very first race, a 5K, 4 months later with my trainer and friend, Ron Hetzel, by my side. It is hard to believe that race was over a year ago now, and that I finished my very first half marathon this past Sunday. I am so proud of myself...I…Continue
Pushing yourself... makes you a better person, right?
Yes. I believe that.
It's quite the challenge, though, when you set a goal that you don't make... for whatever reason.
About a year and a half ago, I set a goal to complete El Tour de Tucson, a 109-mile (which turned into a 111-mile) bike race around the perimeter of Tucson AZ. Long story short... the day came and went... and I completed a whopping 75 miles. HOWEVER... Here's the thing...
Well Mother nature could not have dialed up a better day for the thousands of runners and spectators today at the Phila marathon. All that I can say is that today provided a thorough cross section Including; Tent confusion as the good people at the marathon FORGOT to provide us w/ our tent. Special thanks to the dairy foundation for stepping up and helping the NMSS and the MS team for staying the course.…Continue

Florida Ironman November 5th, 2011- FIRST ONE!!
I think the day that my Ironman journey started was last November in 2010, when I registered for my first Florida Ironman. The months after, I was seriously contemplating on what the heck I had done, did I really think that I could do an Ironman?? I had just started swimming last October…so I knew I had a looooong way to go before I could swim 2.4 miles…in the Gulf of Mexico no less!
I am sure that…Continue
