Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk have more friends than I do

If you know me well, you know I am a pretty big Firefly fan.  I don’t go to conventions or anything, but I have watched the whole series on DVD at least 10 times, plus the movie ‘Serenity’ that followed.  In fact, as the owner of a big gym with nearly 30 staff, I feel…

Passed by a Butterfly….

Back from camp, life has returned to normal: Cold weather (but warmer than normal), snow, ice, challenging swimming pool times, bike rides in the basement and spin studio, and running with many layers on. Work is work, full as ever, but I am VERY thankful for my great staff that handles so many things, so…

Crazy amounts of fun!

Having a BLAST here in Arizona! Yes…the training is hard and exhausting etc – but I LOVE it!  I have said it time and time again, I am not your typical triathlete – my legs are too short, my back is too long and I am WAY too heavy at 200+ lbs…….but Hard Work Beats…

Crowdfunding, KikFix, Vegas and Tucson!

Making a Movie??

I had a great meeting yesterday with Drew Kenworthy from Shoelace Media.  He is a Director and Producer.  We spoke at length about making a documentary of my journey to Ultraman World Championships 2015.  We are aiming at having it submitted to the Banff Mountain Film Festival for the 2016 year. I think it could…

Knocked on my Butt

Well folks…… that was….well.  It was what it was. I woke up Christmas morning with all of my joints aching.  I knew I had a cold coming on or something, but being Christmas, I sucked back a bunch of vitamins, oil of oregano, a mocha and tried to pretend all was well in the world….

The hardest part of racing

Hi everyone! It has indeed been a while since I have blogged….. after the Ultraman last year, I took some time off, and then settled into a very busy work schedule, and well…..this just sort of fell away. I went back to Hawaii this past November and volunteered and cheered at the race, and I…
