Ironman70.3 Indian Wells La Quinta | Swim Recap

What a crazy weekend. We are just settling back into our place in Los Angeles and I am both highly caffeinated and exhausted at the same time. This past weekend, I raced my first half Ironman race, which is 70.3 miles consisting of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 miles on the bike, and finished with […]

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 […]

Ironman 70.3 Gear List | Prepping for Cold Weather

As I head into my first half Ironman race weekend, I’m looking at my gear laid out on our guest bed and it occurs to me: this is a ton of stuff! In fact, a couple people messaged me and said that they had no idea how much gear is used in a triathlon, so […]

Sharing My New Race Suit! | Voler Tri Suit Review

Welcome to the world of triathlon, where for several hours you’ll be pushing your physical limits in nothing more than a thin layer of Nylon/Spandex! Hah! For some this might be a little uncomfortable at first, in fact, my wife still gives me a weird look each time I roll out of the house in […]

Fortunately it was an olympic distance race, but sure enough, I spent […]

October Training Stats (Weeks 10 – 7 Out)

Where did the time go!?! Just yesterday I felt like I had plenty of time left before the race and now I’m starting to think about tapering and final race prep! October’s focus switched from base-building to more concerted efforts around cycling and brick work (bike into runs). By the final week I finally brought […]

Nutrition Plan for Ironman 70.3

Last weekend I had a moment: I put an hour in on the bike and hopped off to a 12.6 mile run. It didn’t seem crazy but in the direct sunlight I felt myself hitting a wall at mile nine. It wasn’t a bad one and honestly, considering I had just been drinking gatorade the […]

September Training Stats (Weeks 14 – 11 Out)

Phew!! Those weeks flew by quickly! I feel like I blinked and September passed by, and that tells me these next 10 weeks will likely be the same. The month started fairly slow, with a work trip to Berlin, Germany and a heavier focus on running. Knowing my bike is not where it needs to […]

Is Eric Lagerstrom in the Crush It Zone???

I saw this video drop yesterday and from the moment it opens, I thought, “damn, Eric’s got it!” In a piece that captures his “coolest triathlon day with the coolest people” on the longest day of the year, I couldn’t help but wonder: did this badass, professional triathlete accidentally venture into the crushitzone??? You be […]
