Coffee

I'm cutting caffeine out of my diet but I'm a real addict.  Coffee makes everything feel better.  I'm going to miss coffee.  I drink 4 cups a day and sometimes more though I do not track it. Around lunchtime on Friday, I committed to giving it up.  The Tri Coach suggested this and I replied [...]

Colonial Beach Tri Report

By | 2015-09-05T17:09:00+00:00 September 5th, 2015|

I decided it would be fun to do the "double" weekend of racing with a sprint and an oly. The conditions for Colonial Beach were pretty miserable day one as far as setting up and waiting for the start.  It was pouring buckets. Poor Nick had a rough day of spectating as I splashed around [...]

Shamrock Half Marathon

By | 2015-08-17T13:50:00+00:00 August 17th, 2015|

I fell behind on race reporting. I never blogged about my best race ever, the Shamrock Half Marathon in March.  It was when I realized I was very much succeeeding at self coaching.  I wanted that for the confidence in the knowledge I've gained as a student of the sport and the ability to apply [...]

Flying Through Transitions
