Coquimbo 70.3

I was so excited to return to Chile after having an incredible experience in Pucon in 2017. Jarrod had raced Coquimbo the previous year and had a wonderful experience. 

The best way I can describe Coquimbo is this: it looks like Southern California minu...

BIT historically has had a very small pro field; this was often due to the fact that it often fell during 70.3 World Champs and WTS Grand Final.  However, the timing of the event was much better this year, working with the schedules of both short course and long course...

It's been a LONG time since I've posted an update. Summer always seems to be a particularly busy time for me with racing, but 2018 has been challenging in ways that I haven't been accustomed to.  So here is a brief update on how the past few races and my life have gone...

It had been 10 years since I had raced Escape from a Alcatraz. I had very few memories from racing there so I treated like a new race venue.  It’s very hard to recon this race course. We drove the bike course, and spent a lot of time using google street view and watchi...

My race morning alarm went off especially early in St.George; it is a 30min bus ride from T2 to T1. I woke up at 3:30am and was out the door by 4:10am. I parked downtown then dropped my run gear bag in T2. I took the shuttle bus to Sand Hallow park and tried to catch a...

The last few weeks have been intense. To make a very long story short; I’ve got a lot of heavy family stuff going on right now. I spent the majority of April up in Canada with my family. One phone call changed my training plans and within a couple hours I was packed an...

We had done quite a bit of research on Bariloche before traveling there, but nothing prepared us for how truly spectacular the views were. The mountains and lakes were out of a fairy tale. The race venue was spread out; it was a logistically difficult since T1 and T2 w...

As a part time mental trainer, one of the most common concerns I meet with triathletes about is open water swimming anxiety.  Most commonly, beginner triathletes have the most concerns before their first race, but for some, the anxiety related to open water swimming ne...

I’m on the plane back to Orlando after a very exciting weekend of racing and a few days of relaxing at The Island House. We arrived in Nassau on Wednesday leading into the race. It was a very easy direct flight from Orlando- the flight had multiple other IHIT participa...

Racing in Kona is a soul bearing experience. Every single person that races there has sacrificed a great deal just to get to the start line. It is so hard to get everything right in Kona and put together a good race and not make mistakes in the difficult conditions.  T...
