Rochester Triathlon 2019!

By |

Did I say triathlon? I meant duathlon. That's right folks, the swim was canceled on account of Lake Ontario being extremely grumpy.

This brought our first lesson of the day: anything can happen on race day. As soon as we pulled in the parking lot, my triathlete buddy Karstin walked up to the car and informed [...]

Although this has been on my calendar all summer, the sudden reality of actually registering for it and committing to the race has sent me into a full-fledge training panic.

Ellie and I started the building process toward our first major road race of the season, which means one thing: a weekend long run. I am happy to report it wasn't too bad! The weather was near perfect for a February run, which is quite remarkable considering less than twelve hours later, we had fierce [...]

No matter how light a light beer is, too many beers makes for a bad weigh-in. As usual on this blog, Wednesday is for stat checking! If you would like to contribute and get involved, feel free to leave a comment, create an account and get moving!

Looks like Adrienne took weekly crown of top [...]
