A Busy Guy’s Guide to Ironman 70.3 in 12 Weeks AWESOME! I am assuming you are reading this because you are committing to Ironman 70.3. This is big news…appreciate the size of this decision!

You gotta start somewhere! You don’t just wake up one day and realize you have achieved your goals overnight. You don’t just find yourself RELEVANT, or IN DEMAND. Improvement takes time…but over that time, you need to see progress, or you will LOSE momentum. You need to tinker and test and take notes. And make […]
Exceed Your Limits Or Die Much of what I have read regarding finding success focuses on the glory of the result, and not so much on the 90% — the hard work that needs attention daily to GET to the result. It’s the 90% that needs your attention, your motivation…your consistent dedication. Otherwise…you are stuck on a […]
I was watching a movie with my wife last night (Whiskey Tango Foxtrot – which was actually good – just not…funny).

Preparing for Triathlon is HARD! But you did it…and now you need to pack for your trip. Don’t sweat it. Use this as a guide to get you organized and packed. I’ve done 3 Ironman races, 1 Ironman 70.3, and many Olympic distance races…and traveled to all of them. This helps me prepare.
Don’t I know it! Look, as someone who slogs hours at a time on the bike, and long runs a couple of times a week during Ironman training…I can tell you, not only does my muscle tone disappear (infant arms), but my belly fat appears to accumulate. If it happens to me after burning thousands […]
Oh Yeah! Race day is TOMORROW! I want to send a shout out to Eric Brogmus, Mark Keiper (two of the Four Bastards signed up for Boulder Ironman next August), Michelle Peters and Sharon Silvas. They have been training like sled dogs for a a while…I anticipate a great result from all of them.
Went for a long ride on Sunday…reached for my Bluebuds X and scrolled through my set list. What do I listen to? I’ve been using Rhapsody for years…and haven’t needed to find another service because they have almost everything I like. My music choice changes over time, but curiously, the consistency of certain rides and […]
