The struggle for a healthy life is all in my head. It’s a mental game. At least that’s what I think it is. I have some goals fitness goals for myself for 2014 that lead into 2015. As some of you know, when I was blogging a lot more, I would throw out my goals […]

I’d say it’s been a little while since I’ve written on this little blog. I can’t say that I’ve worried about it, but I would say I’ve missed it. A lot. What I’ve missed most about it is how simple blogging can be. Think about something you want to say and just write about it. […]
Well I finished another race. My 30th triathlon to be exact. It was an emotional and painful finish. But then, any race with the name Ironman in it is bound to be just that. Emotional and painful. For those of you just now tuning in. The Boulder 70.3 Half Ironman is 1.2 miles of swimming, […]
Last week I raced in the Boulder Tri Series Sprint Triathlon. It was a short distance race and I’ve raced in my fair share of them. I was using this race as a gauge to see where I sit physically. The first 5 months of this year where a little tough getting my training in […]

Zones 1 and 2 are easier while zone 3, 4 and 5 are harder. You could imagine that zone 5 is at the top of the HR zones and really, really tough to maintain for a long period of time… not really recommended in fact.
In just a couple of days, 2013 will be here and the question is…
Are you ready for 2013?
The beginning of 2013, like most beginnings of the new year brings with it new years resolutions, new commitments and renewed energy to do something different or change bad habits in to good habits.
Recently my favorite local bike shop, Café Velo, hosted a demo ride day with Specialized Bikes. First, if you are in Colorado Springs, you should stop by Café Velo. It’s a coffee shop and bike shop all in one! I mean really. Who doesn’t like sitting around really cool bikes while sipping a little java […]
I don’t know about you but the older I get, the more I need to set goals and challenge myself more in the process of meeting my goals. When I’m setting goals through out the year, I tend to think of my year in seasons. Yes… I know we have four seasons of the year […]
