Pushing Past The Plateau

When I take a bird's eye view at the 2011 season, I am very grateful to have experienced everything I did this year. I hit some rough patches in my opening races which left a lot of health issues in question but it was very important to me to use those mishaps to

Heading into ITU LC WC, I was still on a high from my sister's wedding the weekend before and those memories were certainly still heavily and fondly on my mind. I was really excited to be a part of a 'world championship' and to represent the USA. In addition, I was PUMPED for

It was an amazing experience going back to Penticton this year. I love the city as it reminds me of Lake Tahoe and wine country all wrapped up into one. A happy place to be. Having the Kesslers, Sterlings and AK there, as ever, was priceless. There is nothing better than seeing people

Gumption: Another attempt at #40

It's not often times that we get another chance at something. So, when we do...I consider this a real luxury. The whole beauty of Ironman racing is that ...THERE is always another one, (whenever that may be) to look forward to... a pretty cool thing. On May 7th at Ironman St George, I
