With the sunset of my 30’s is quickly closing, I thought I’d get up on here and share some observations and lessons learned. The first house I lived in would eventually burn down. So would the second and the third. My dad would teach me to tie my shoes a la Mickey Mouse Method. I… Read More 39 Years of Lessons
We’re Going to Austria! So unfortunately my new role at work since January has kept me from making any posts since the New Year started and now that I think about it, we’re already past halfway into the year! Dang, time has FLOWN by! But I had a race last weekend (yes I’m a week… Read More Ironman 70.3 Muncie Race Recap: We’re Going to Austria!

I wasn’t far from… Read More Boston Marathon 2014: Taking Back the Finish Line
In a nutshell… Signing up for my first full ironman distance triathlon wasn’t an easy or quick decision. In fact it took me five years of triathlon racing to decide to take the plunge. It was also a family decision. I wanted to find the right race, the right destination and one that fit into a good… Read More Win From Within: Ironman Los Cabos
I wrote my last blog post about my Ironman Los Cabos journey quite some time ago, a few weeks late. Little did I realize how FAST the time would pass and that three-week “late entry” would become my personal best in Ironman blogging. After the New Year, I raced quite well at HITS Naples then… Read More Ironman Los Cabos | Block 4…and 5, 6 and 7
