Barking Dog 2011

The Barking Dog Duathlon is usually one of my favorite races of the year, partially because of the location and also because I tend to do well at it. This year the weather was great! In the past it has been one of the colder races with lots of wind and or rain, but today […]

Atomic Man 2011

This race was a real surprise for me. I had no idea what to expect in this race; the bike leg was much farther than I have gone in training with any effort above very low base pace, however I had a good Platte Half and ran a 5k last week at a pretty good […]

Schoolyard Cross ’10

This past Saturday was the Schoolyard cyclocross race at Boulder reservoir.

On the first […]

Not Going to Stop

Heart slamming in my chest, sight greyed out beyond 50ft with pin hole vision starting to creep in, legs and lungs were searing but now are silent – I think the nerves signaling pain overheated and had to shut down for a bit. Pick myself up off the ground and start to run with my […]

Platte River Half Marathon 2010 race

This year’s Platte River Half Marathon went great! On the ride down, Hill and I were feeling good and looking forward to the day’s adventures.

We got to the start area and got a spot in our “secret” parking spot at a perfect time, as there was nearly no one there, and 10min later […]
