Rock the Bay sprint triathlon

Did my annual multisport event to maintain triathlete status. Up to this point, I had not swam since the last triathlon, biked a total of about 20 miles in the last 6 months, and have only done treadmill running as part of Orange Theory workouts a few times per week since January. This was to … Continue reading »

Spring Sprint Triathlon

Decided to try to do at least one race per year, preferable a triathlon, most preferably a short one. Two weeks prior to race race day, a stomach bug hit, which was followed up with a head and chest cold (that was not quite over for the event) for the week before, requiring amoxicillin and … Continue reading »

Solana Beach Duathlon

I wanted to be sure that I got a multi-sport event in this year, and since it has been more than 2 years since I’ve done any swimming, a duathlon seemed like the smart choice.  Also, not wanting to have to travel to race, just about the only option was the Solana Beach sprint duathlon … Continue reading »

Carlsbad Triathlon

I’m not really sure what compelled me to sign up for this event, other than to get in another triathlon for the year. It is absolutely not geared towards a triathlete such as myself, as it has an unusually long swim for a spinet distance. Nevertheless, I signed up, so I was gonna do it. … Continue reading »

Kendra Payne Memorial Triathlon

Four years ago, the Kendra Payne Memorial Triathlon (a.k.a. UCSB Triathlon) was the second tri I’d ever done. Last year, I decided to do it again, but got rained out. So, I thought I’d give it another go this year! Prior to this race, I swam exactly one time since the Carpinteria Triathlon – 800 meters, in … Continue reading »

Carpinteria Sprint Triathlon (again)

Four years ago, the Carpinteria Sprint was my first triathlon. As the 7th of 10 events to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I decided to repeat this triathlon. All morning, it was drizzling and roads were wet so I wasn’t looking forward to this. I even considered skipping out, but thought better … Continue reading »

CANCELLED!

The second event I was supposed to do as part of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society fundraising in memory of my friend Adam D. Milne was cancelled! I drove all the way up to Santa Barbara to participate in the UCSB triathlon, knowing that it was going to be horrible racing in the rain – … Continue reading »

Carpinteria Triathlon – Sprint (500m/15K/5K)

Since that last night moves boosted my swim confidence, I was feeling pretty good going in to this. I figured I could finish in 68-80 minutes. Waiting around to start kind of sucked, but once it was time to suit up I was ready to go. Interestingly, I had a brush with celebrity (well a … Continue reading »
