The Vacation Challenge

I am happy to report that I am going on a short vacation for four days to Maine to chill out in a log cabin at the side of a lake. I will manage to keep my training up with some open water swimming and runs around the area – however I do not want … Continue reading

An advanced version of the little train that could

Are you stuck behind a desk? Is your day workout the walk to the car and snacks in the break room? Workout vicariously through this blog post. To begin, I have not updated my blog recently for a little more than a week.  I apologize. Visualize this – A key jolts the tumblers of the … Continue reading

Quick Training Updates

Quick Updates Saturday (7/18) The group workout in Loudoun County this past Saturday was awesome! I am happy to report that it was much different than the prior week. I kicked butt on the ride and did a full 85 minute bike ride up and down some tough hills followed by a 30 minute run! … Continue reading

A brick, a flat, a day of conquered challenges

It was a busy weekend! Saturday’s group brick (bike & run) was near Greenbelt, MD [Our Ride]. My group mentor, Rich, and I convinced ourselves that we would be early. Was that the case? Not so much. More than 15 people were already getting ready in the parking lot when we arrived and it was … Continue reading

7/4: 1 good workout, 2 slightly embarrassing falls

I have been working out a lot over the past two days to catch up since my injury on Tuesday (6/30). I rode my bike for more than an hour and a half this morning (7/4) though a good 40 minutes or so was probably puttering around the White House, the Washington Monument and the … Continue reading

“On your Leeeeeft”

I had great intentions to write a post on last Saturday’s workout earlier this week; however I injured my eye during a company softball game on Tuesday (6/30) night and well between the ER and trying to work with one eye – the time to write escaped me. I would still like to give a … Continue reading

Ambition takes hold – 3 disciplines, one day

My morning routine is becoming ever more acceptable. I wake up at 5:00 a.m. everyday with ease. (Fun fact: 99.9 percent of readers polled stated that the thought of waking up that early made them tired with a sudden craving for Starbucks.) And what do you do at 5:00 a.m.? I attend the Sport & … Continue reading

Training run deemed “not that bad”

Running – The act of putting one foot in front of the other until (A) you sweat-out like a block of cheese in the sun and crack, or (B) need to tie your shoe laces. …there may be other options; I chose not to indulge you with such things. Runners abound Hmmm…how do I start … Continue reading

Area Resident Will Conquer the Tri

I am a member of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Team in Training program and I will participate in the Nation’s Triathlon on September 13. The Journey Starts Sleep in the corner of my eye. I wake up…though the alarm’s repetitious pulse and unnatural racket that commonly signals a day’s beginning hasn’t sounded yet. A … Continue reading

Question of the Day

Below is my favorite question of all time. It has been years since it was recounted to me so I can’t attribute it; however I always end up pulling it out in conversations to have a bit of fun with guests, especially those with math, engineering or physics backgrounds. Scenario: You have a one mile … Continue reading
