The Rundown – 4 Weeks Until My First Half Ironman
  In four weeks I hope to cross the finish line of my first ever Half Ironman. My only goal is to finish this race because it is going to take everything I have. Oddly enough I’m most worried about the run. Why? Because it comes after a 1.2 mile swim and 54 mile bike […]

Loon Mountain Race 2018
I know I am surrounded by spectators on either side of the trail near the finish line of the Loon Mountain Race. But I don’t see or hear them at all. My eyes go from the ground to searching for the summit and the finish line back to the ground. One step in front of […]

The Rundown – You Will Suffer
  Whenever I need to give my email address, which includes “train4life” I’m almost always asked about it. Last week when one such exchange took place, the guy on the other end of the phone turned out to be a two-time Ironman, so we talked about my upcoming half. “You will suffer, that’s for sure,” […]

The Rundown – A Quiet Place
I’m less than three weeks from my Half Ironman race and I find myself in a quiet place. I’m stuck between the rigorous 11 hour training weeks and race day, between thinking “I’m going to crush this!” and “there’s a chance I could actually die out there.” It’s taper time people, or what I like […]

I did it. I finished 70.3 miles of swimming, cycling and running through some of the steepest terrain in Connecticut to claim the title of Half Ironman. Here’s how it all went down. FOUR DAYS BEFORE THE RACE Yes, I’m starting four days before the race because that is when I first started feeling sick. […]

Last Week’s Workouts
Last week’s workouts had me feeling a little less blah about running.  I think I was just in a funk.  I’ve got another race on my schedule for early August and the possibility of two more in late August/September. As of right now, none are goal races but it gives me something to say I’m […]
