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 »

Lavaman Triathlon (Olympic)

Argh, I keep procrastinating on writing this one up. Here’s hoping a lousy write-up is better than none… There was a whole lotta training and fundraising that led up to this, and if you would like to read up on that, it can all be found at my TnT page. Assuming you are caught up, … 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 »

Vineman Half Ironman

The 2011 Vineman Half IronMan served as my fundraising platform for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Team In Training. For months beforehand, I was dreading the potential weather as it is usually quite hot and humid in Sonoma County that time of year. Additionally, the weather had been unseasonably cool in San Diego, making … Continue reading »

Ventura Triathlon

In 2008, I did the Ventura Triathlon and it was a pretty decent race, with an ocean swim and a flat bike course, but it had a double out-and-back run on concrete. Not being a fan of the repetitive boringness of that kind of run course or of running on concrete, I didn’t go back. … 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 »

Santa Barbara Tri – Long Course

With a 50K looming and only about a week of real training left for it, I couldn’t justify an all-out effort this year for the SB long course. In short, I just plain can’t take time off for recovery – or worse, injury. I needed to be able to do a three hour training run … Continue reading »
