The weather turned back around, the snow all melted and things improved a LOT!! Training has been going REALLY well….  I sure miss having a coach,…

Training is starting to really come together!

I swam 9.1kms today in 3:19….. in our 14 degree above freezing lake…..  It was not entirely pleasant, but it was smooth and calm and the fall leaves looked great on the shore in the distance.  My head, hands and feet were numb for a few hours during (and after) and my arms were exhausted…

Well folks…. with life being as busy as it has been…. the whole Blogging thing has taken a back seat….

Why Race? and ps. How was Germany?

Why race again? It’s a funny thing this life of mine the past 2.5 years…..  I have run the gambit I think….. of things people could say or express to me about my crash and subsequent life beyond. There was the phase where I was talking about it (the crash) a lot, because everyone that…

The long overdue Couer d’Alene report……

I am not sure how I missed blogging this….. it took me nearly half an hour to find it in the computer even….  I wrote it… and never posted it.  Oops!! Enjoy!!   When I signed up for the Ironman in Couer d’Alene Idaho in 2016 once the metal was out of my arm and…
