I’m a huge fan of the Olympics.  It is one of the few times that some of the sports that I love, such as sailing, triathlon, running, swimming and cycling, get a spotlight on the world stage.  It is also awesome to see countries from all over the world come together . . . → Read More: The Olympic Spirit

What Keeps Me Motivated?

Of course I’d like to be faster, but who doesn’t?  This isn’t enough though. You reach plateaus, you get injured, so you have to have something else to fall back on — something solid.

On Saturday, October 16th, 2010 I, along with 45,000+ other people, participated in the Komen Race for the Cure in Little Rock, AR.  I arrived around 7:15am so that I could find a parking spot and get close to the front of the group before the start.  While waiting around for the start . . . → Read More: Race for the Cure 2010

Inspiration

This week I have been a little bit more regimented towards my training since I’m most likely going to do the CATS Sprint Triathlon on September 12.  But, I have also been a little unfocused because I’m getting ready for my vacation next week.  During times like these when training isn’t necessarily my top priority, . . . → Read More: Inspiration
