Ironman Coeur d’Alene is for Dwayne

Ironman Coeur d’Alene is for Dwayne

For those who don’t know this, my journey into the sport of triathlon began because of ALS, as Ryan’s beloved law professor had been diagnosed with it. In an effort to raise funds and awareness, I raced my first triathlon along with a team of law students the following year, which was dubbed the “Tri […]

Ironman Cozumel & the Iron Baby.

Ironman Cozumel & the Iron Baby.

I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since I raced Ironman Cozumel. It was to be the culmination of my 2014 tri season – a “rebuild and recovery” year for me after my bike crash in November of 2013. So I spent the first part of last year doing rehab exercises on my healing […]

Let’s go race in the desert!

Let’s go race in the desert!

Silverman 70.3 was extremely challenging both in terrain and climate. For sure it was a course made for strong, fearless cyclists and tough runners who can withstand long, undulating hills in the heat. I now fully understand why a version of this course was previously chosen as the Ironman 70.3 World Championship course — it […]

“Why would you ever ride a bicycle for 12 hours straight?”

Bike Sebring So let me introduce you to Bike Sebring…a 12-hour (and 24-hour) ultra bicycling road race held in rural Sebring, FL. I was encouraged to do this race by my good friend and ultracycling guru Major Jim Russell (who has coordinated many multi-day cycling events where a team of experienced cyclists ride 100-130 miles […]

400-mile bike rides, trail runs, and tri season.

400-mile bike rides, trail runs, and tri season.

I have no idea how it got to be June already. The past couple of months have been filled with a lot of training, traveling and racing – so much so that I have been remiss in updating my blog. To that end, here’s a quick summary of my April – May – June, thus […]

Not your normal Sunday training ride (Part II.)

As promised, there is a second part to my previous blog post about that fateful Sunday bike ride with my training buddies a few weeks ago. On the second half of that day’s easy ride, on our way back to town, I witnessed yet another road safety incident that landed one of my best friends, […]

Not your normal Sunday training ride (Part I.)…

While riding out in Pinecrest (southwest Miami-Dade) today, a small group of 5 of us cyclists made the left turn onto Ludlam (67th Ave.) from Old Cutler Rd. (heading south riding down the much traveled route out to Blackpoint Marina), where we encountered a lone cyclist off the road on the corner standing in the […]

Running 200 miles from Miami to Key West on Team Nuun!

Running 200 miles from Miami to Key West on Team Nuun!

On the first weekend of 2013, I took part in the 3rd annual running of the Ragnar Relay FL Keys – a 200-mile relay race from my backyard here in Miami down to Key West. I’ve done this particular race every year since its inception in 2011. You might recall I was on a 12-person […]

RAAM – Siesta Beach – Nationals – Escape to Miami.

RAAM – Siesta Beach – Nationals – Escape to Miami.

Wow, what a tri season it has been! After coming off of crewing for a 4-person Race Across America (a.k.a., “RAAM”) Team in June (which in and of itself was the most exhausting, challenging, yet exhilarating experience of my life), I jumped back into training feeling a little sore after all that time on the […]

FL 70.3 – Race Re-cap

At the end of the 2011 tri season, I knew that I wanted to race another half Ironman early into the 2012 season. For me, that meant racing Ironman 70.3 FL on May 20th. My friend and fellow training mate Ricky is training for Ironman Zurich, so this made for a perfect tune-up for him […]
