Ironman Louisville Race Report and Nutrition Plan

I’m heading home today after my three week road trip which started when I left San Diego August 11th and flew to Michigan for the Steelhead 70.3 in Benton Harbor on August 14th. I stayed with Mike and Katie Jones on this first of three stops on my road trip. What luck to have a homestay who owned a bike shop and looked after Aussie Christie Sym and I like we were pro cyclists…I wish everytime I flew to a race I had someone waiting to put my bike together, pick me up on a ride when a thunder and…See More

Racine 70.3

This past weekend, I traveled to Racine, Wisconsin for my second half Ironman of the season. After racing in Texas three weeks ago, I realized how much fitness I gain from racing and decided to add an extra 70.3 to my race schedule. Racine seemed like a good choice – a wetsuit swim, a timetrial bike and a hot run – just how I like…See More

Buffalo Springs 70.3

I’m happy tosay that I’ve finally started my race season for this year. Unlike other years when I’ve started racing in Feb or March and had the majority of my season finished by July, this year I’m doing things in reverse – starting in June and racing until November. This actually wasn’t part of my original plan, but after ending last season with a disabling hip injury, I’ve been slowly ramping up this year and sorting out some rehab issues to make sure I have a strong second half of the…See More

"I've never done Hawaii before ... do you have any recommendations on bike set up there? I usually pack my bike, put it together and have someone fine tune it. I imagine it will be crazy! when I get there."

"heading to Hawaii? Our weather got cool! I miss those 105 degree weather days...(Austin, Tx) I hope I am still acclimated! Looks like a great ride!"

Hawaii Training

My long bike and my long run are my two favorite workouts of the week. I love heading out on my bike for a long ride, especially when the weather is hot and sunny. Two weeks ago I discovered a new bike loop which is actually a pretty famous long ride in San Diego called “The Henshaw Loop”. The marine layer near the coast a couple of weeks ago was thick like pea soup, and seeking the sun and hotter temps, I ventured inland a couple of Saturdays ago. I loved this ride so much that I had to go…See More

Kona Nutrition Report

For Kona, I followed the same nutrition plan I follow at all of my IM races :


On race morning, about 2hrs before race start, I had the following : four pieces of toast with peanut butter and jam, one packet of oatmeal with half a banana, and a cup of tea. I also took my Multi-V and Optygen.


For the hour leading up to the race, I sipped on a bottle of EFS drink.


During the bike, every 20min I consumed 1/4 of an EFS…

Kona 2010

It’s now 4 days since the IM World Championships in Kona, and I’m on a flight heading back to San Diego. This is the second time I have raced Kona (my first time was 2 years ago), and both times I have loved this race. The swim is in the ocean which gives a sinker like me some buoyancy, I can spend the whole bike in the aerobars time-trialing which is what I like best, and the weather is hot which I love.


The lead up for this race was a bit different than my…
