I just finished my first race of the season. Ironman 70.3 Florida in Haines City. The race venue used to be at Orlando Disney World but has moved down here the past couple years and while I would have been exciting to race with Mickey Mouse the venue down here was pretty awesome.Training the past 5 weeks has gone well. My fitness and strength has come up nicely and I was looking forward to seeing how my body would step up in my first race. The course was not your typical Florida pancake... more
It was just one month ago, on April 16, that I ran for the first time in 6 weeks. That run consisted of three 100m sprints, and a walk back to the start with eyes closed. This was the culmination of four days learning a new approach to allowing my body to heal itself and how to keep my body healthier and as stress free as possible.
When I asked my instructor at the end of the course about whether he thought it was a good idea to race Honu Ironman 70.3 in 6 weeks time I was tentative for fear of... more
I just wanted to send a special message to all of my friends in Texas getting ready to crush that ironman tomorrow, especially our TeamHPBers and campers.
After a very successful Part One at Ironman Melbourne, Team HPB’er Marc Rubin (if you don’t know his story, check him out here.) is continuing his 2013 Comeback Tour in the Woodlands tomorrow. With support from Kona Dawn, obvi!
Then three of these gals are on track for a big day tomorrow: Aixa and Kris are going to cross their first ironman... more

I had always wanted to try a double of some sort, back to back Ironman’s or Half Ironman’s. But I never thought it would be an Ironman in Taiwan followed by a 70.3 in Busselton. However, once we heard about the first Challenge Ironman event in Taiwan we didn’t want to miss it…plus I am not going to miss my home town race of Busseton 70.3. The challenge was set!
Guy and I sat down and had a plan for post Ironman Challenge Taiwan. From as soon as we crossed the finish line until the start of... more
Before I went to Taiwan for the iron-distance race, I signed myself up for some torture here at home the following weekend: the Tucson 5000. For some reason, I had this sick compulsion to sign up just because I knew that running a 5k balls-out a week after ironman is the last thing my legs would want to do. Not sure what that is about, but I figured this little workout would shock my body out of “yay me I just did an ironman so now I can chill out” mode back into work mode.
It was indeed... more

"Well, a wiser fella than myself once said, 'sometimes you eat the bar. And, well, sometimes he eats you...'" And so it goes when you are looking for more
My new favorite phone app is “the Bump” app. Every Thursday, I get pinged as a reminder to tell me what week I am of pregnancy. And I love that it tells me the size of our baby in terms of fruit or vegetable.
This week is 17 weeks. Baby Girl is about 5.1 inches, the size of an onion. She looks something like this, although I hope she is much prettier. :)
In the mornings, my stomach is sort of flat. I do have a slight bump…but by mid afternoon I can see something more significant. The abs are... more

Reset, Refresh, Refocus ...It has been a very long time chasing that one perfect race. Every race I do, I take something away from it and learn from it.For 2013 my approach was to do fewer races than in past years in order to build strength mentally and physically so my performances were to my best ability. As much as I love to race, it for me however is no longer about setting a PB or finishing top three.I'm at a point in my career when I race to to win.I put a great deal of pressure on myself... more
