    Your Ironman race is done and unless you are trying to set a world record, or a professional or have another Ironman coming up the chances are high that you will not be doing any sort of structured training for a minimum of 3 weeks.  You may go out and ride your bike to loosen [...]

    The sport of triathlon is filled with video clips, sayings and words of inspiration.  ”Find Your Strong,” “We Got This,” “Stops at Never.” But at the end of the day or at the break of dawn when your alarm clock goes off and you have to get yourself moving to get to the pool for [...]

Unfortunately and due to my personal commitment of qualifying to Kona, it’s quite hard to be able to race them in between scoring points at WTC races.

Do You Define Your Diet Or Does Your Diet Define You?

Diet can come across as a bad word to many but does it have to be?  If you embrace how you eat then does it matter that somebody defines it as a particular diet?  I remember when I chose to live a plant-based lifestyle the questions were somewhat ridiculous.  They jumped right aboard the how [...]

Endurance Athletes Share The Same Goals!
