Better, Stronger, Faster

It’s Kona time!

It pays to get out and run. Literally. Found these items on the street today. Another time I found a pristine set of swim goggles in a bike lane.

Last Long Run

My final long run before the marathon is complete!  Finally, we had some gorgeous, cool weather for today’s long run.  

After this event, I am done with marathons. I’m sticking with half-marathon or shorter from now on.  I’m really ready to get back to some sprint and oly distance duathlon racing, too. 

Pro Tip # 23: if you need to puke at the track, please do not puke ON the track!

This is a really cool bike design! I especially love the handlebar locking system.

Highlight from 2014 USA Triathlon conference was pro athlete and coach Sarah McLarty discussing open water swim training.

Interbike 2014 — lots of cool bikes and tri gear, plus free beer. Am I in heaven?

Splash Pad — a welcome sight on the second half of this morning’s run. It was a steam room out there this morning.  Yes, I jumped around in there like a 3-year old!

Good ideas on body weight strength and mobility here!
