So I’ve been a bit lost lately. After St. Anthony’s I had a really hard time keeping my head in the game. Its not like I stopped training or anything, its just that I stopped being able to really mentally engage in what I was doing. Yes, I had a busy month at work, yes, …

It only took a little over a week to get the pictures, so I guess its time to actually write my race report for Saint Anthony’s. I was a big, nervous wreck going into this race. Its my first triathlon after a long winter of lots and lots of base training and I wanted to …

Sitting around at MIT this past weekend waiting for a review of our swim analysis videos, I asked Jeff how many minutes he wanted me to give him when we raced Rev 3. Jeff responded that he was going to beat me straight up and essentially have the race of his life. I laughed and …
