Don't run out!!

I allowed my supply of MultiV and Ultragen to run out, I wanted to wait until the new Kona Mocha LS came out so I could put in one order for everything. HUGE MISTAKE!!  I had a fairly strong 2 week block of training planned, then a trip overseas for work.  Without my daily dose of MultiV and my favorite product Ultragen I was completely burnt, and I've been sick for the last 6 days!!  I won't make this mistake again.See More

IM Coeur D'Alene

CDA is a great place for an IM!!  Very scenic, the town really gets behind the event, and mother nature combined with a tough course usually delivers a VERY challenging event.......and this year did not dissappoint!! My day started at 4:30am with my Optygen HP/MultiV, an Ultragen shake, 1 large bagel with natural PB and Jam, a large chocolate chip cookie, and 1 cup of Via Starbucks coffee.I sipped on a bottle of half strength EFS grape until 10 minutes before race start, then a quick mouthful…See More

Galveston Texas 70.3

First, coming from Calgary (-8 Celcius) on Friday night, to race on Sunday in Galveston (+27C and humid); maybe not the best race plan!!That said, I knew my nutrition would need to be spot on to have a good day.The morning started @ 5:00 with 2 mini bagels (peanut butter and jelly), 1 serving of Ultragen, a banana and 1 cup of coffee.  Between then and my start time of 8:00am I sipped on 1 serving of EFS drink  (750ml), and 15 minutes before the start a downed a flask of PreRace slightly…See More

"The reason you don't get the "attitude" Andy is because you are normal!!  Anyone that was offended at your son wearing that t-shirt needs to get a life!!"

"There are lots of rental homes very close to the transition area/expo?? That's what I did, don't know of too many hotels down that close, but there are tons within 10 minute car ride."

"2 loops.....miles 25-50 (approx.) The good thing is the run is relatively flat."

"That's what I liked about the bike course......the north portion of the ride has lots of hills, you need to manage your watts or they will eat you alive on the 2nd loop and leave you flat for the run."

Shawnigan Lake Half Iron

So, as a tune up for IM Coeur D'Alene I decided to do the Shawnigan Lake Half Iron, part of the West Coast Suburu Series. The race takes place in a beautiful place just outside Victoria BC, Canada. From the start, this race was creating obstacles......first, when I went to check my bike in the day before the race, the bike mechanic on site blew my rear tube filling it with air (I was travelling by air, so I had no pump). So, once this was dealt with, I went for a short swim........the water…See More
