2020 Los Angeles Marathon | Data Review

LA Marathon finishline

Now, a couple weeks post-marathon I’m finally ready to dig into the data from the race. For those who are new to my journey, this is my second official marathon and my hometown race. The two previous years I’ve found myself cheering instead of running due to injury and this year narrowly avoided that fate […]

New Personal Record at the Pasadena Half Marathon!

crossing the finish line

I logged out of my phone Saturday evening having just exchanged messages with a buddy regarding finish times. “I’m expecting a 1:31 – 1:35” I told him.

My First Triathlon | Tri Siesta Key Throwback

As we pack up and head to the desert today to compete in my first Ironman70.3 race, I’ve been thinking back to where this all started in 2016 when I did my first triathlon of any kind, the MultiRace Tri Siesta Key olympic distance race. For those who don’t know, olympic distance is a 0.9mi […]

Race week is here! After fifteen weeks of preparation, there’s nothing left to do but go race this damn thing! Ironman 70.3 Indian Wells will be my first 70.3 distance race as well as my first triathlon in a couple years. All of that gives me plenty of reasons to doubt/stress/worry but all I can […]

Looking back at Dwight Crum 2018

I posted the below on IG and felt like it was a pretty good race summary. Overall I’m so happy with the way this year went. I trained nearly 200,000 yards for this race and made a huge improvement in my overall finish position (+273 out of 983 total swimmers). Today’s race was insane! Good […]
