Well, we finally made it to Christchurch and have been settled for the past 5 days. Really feels good to be back in my old home town and retrace all my old routes with my wife by my side. The first few days were just the normal when settling into a new place. We opened up a bank account, bought a cell phone,setup a wireless network in my mother’s house, and most importantly…….sign up for membership at Jellie Park. This is the swimming pool/gym that Lindsay and I will be spending a fair…Continue

A few weeks ago I did the back-to-back weekends of racing with Rev 3 Half in Connecticut and the Eagleman 70.3. Fueling between events was going to be just as important as fueling during the races.
Rev 3 was a disaster! I was flat all day and just felt miserable from the gun. I used my normal two bottles with bottle one being the 400 calories of liquid shot. Bottle two 200 calories of Fruit Punch EFS. I like doing the EFS last since the taste is more light and…Continue

With the airlines cutting routes and reducing frequency of flights to locations it has been interesting to, say the least, getting to races. So when my good buddy and training partner Justin Park said he was…

Going into the race I was pretty worried that I might might not make top 5. With names like Bozzone, Cunningham,…
Galveston -10th place
Wildflower- 12th place
I was aiming for top 5 in both races as form was good, but things never go as planned! Looking forward to a big break through race soon. Fingers crossed.
I love liquid shot but I can only handle it in training just taking it from the bottle. Switched it up for both races and it worked very well.
Breakfast: Cornflakes, cliff twist, one scoop…Continue
