If you like trail running at all I totally recommend the Uwharrie Trail Runs. There are 8 mile, 20 mile and 40 mile options. I’ve done the 20-miler a couple of times and man oh man is it tough! Registration opens November 1st and it fills up fast. In fact, a team mate noticed someone familiar [...]
That would be on I-85 approximately 9 miles south of the little burg of South Hill, Virginia. Let me first say that I love my little tri truck and I still believe I got an awesome deal on it due to my most excellent skillz of negotiation. We knew that when the dealer put new tires [...]
Went for a nice swim this evening and saw the UNC rowing team out there sculling along like speedy waterbugs. Two boats with two people each and a big 8-person crew. The coach had a megaphone calling out various things like numbers and whatnot. Gary says the rowers also had some sort of amplified communication [...]
Lately at the office I’ve been finding people to train with. There’s a small group that does rides Tuesday at lunch and Thursday evenings on the trails. There’s also a runner that’s interested in going on some lunch runs. This is so cool! It’s like I’ve found some other endurance sport weirdo’s in my “other [...]
That’s right friends. Two. Open up your Fall 2007 USAT Triathlon Life magazine and count them. One, two photos of your favorite goofball triathlete (that’s me, if you’re having trouble with that reference).
The first one is from the USAT Aquathlon National Championship and the second from Tri Worlds. So to those folks that have [...]
So I felt a little run down this morning so I skipped my easy ride and sat around the house all day long. I feel like a lazy slug but I can’t afford to get sick right now. One of the benefits of being sluglike is the surprising amount of time I’ve had to putz [...]
Wow. Just wow. What a great race.
Cool blue sky.
Cool blue water.
Just enough breeze gives water top a chop to shine like diamonds in the sun.
I splash. Glint.
Blue sky blue water.
Current, pull, breathe blue sunlit air. Water droplets shining.
One hour and six minutes.
Yay! The road bike is back on deck with shiny new parts. I will give it a test run tomorrow to get the hang of the doubleclick technology, but here’s some pics. See how regular and sharp the teeth on the front rings are? It’s gonna ride like a dream!
I had one of those runs this morning. The kind that tell me I’m getting into good shape because I start off thinking it will be slow and easy, somehow loosen into a more moderate pace and then build further to finish pretty quickly. Today this wasn’t a factor because I was running solo, but [...]
