Race Report: IRONMAN 70.3 Western Massachusetts (Run)

Always my weakest leg, the run has been a challenge at best and misery at worst. I knew my only chance for success this time was to be extremely smart, which is partly why my expectations remained low. It’s very easy to plan to race smart, but another thing to actually do it. Today, though, […]

Race Report: IRONMAN 70.3 Western Massachusetts (Bike)

It’s extraordinarily difficult to race without expectations. The best I’ve found is something close to converting expectations to hypotheticals — what if? The trick is finding the right questions and asking them of yourself in a way that motivates you, rather than setting up a case for failure. It wasn’t a day to push big […]

Race Report: IRONMAN 70.3 Western Massachusetts (Swim)

It starts with a 1.2 mile walk among thousands, on what we all hope will be our slowest slog of the day. No one mentions the signs warning of sewage dumping when it’s been rainy. It’s a downriver swim in New England; we know to be grateful for what we’ve got. With the start corral […]

Race Report: TOUGHMAN USAT Long Course National Championships (2022)

Race Report: TOUGHMAN USAT Long Course National Championships

TOUGHMAN – USAT Long Course National Championship:🏊🏻‍♂️: an honest course with nowhere to hide. Straight out and back, the rising sun on one side. I was with the leaders most of the way. 6th out of the water in my wave with a 1:37 pace. Happy with that. 🚴🏻‍♂️: basically controlled chaos. Punchy course with […]

IRONMAN 70.3 Indian Wells – La Quinta – Race Recap

* A video version of this race recap can be found on my YouTube channel here. A triathlon is a game of contradiction. You spend hours, weeks, months training for something that lasts moments of your life. Improve at one sport by mastering three. Train slower to race faster. Race slower to race faster. Do […]

Musselman 70.3 – Race Report

My first 70.3 race was a life experience that feels almost too complex to sum up in mere words. I’ve been trying to find my way to describing all of the different things it was for over two months now, and I haven’t gotten very far. I’m not sure is something that put into words […]
