70.3 Boulder was another opportunity to race at home and put my best foot forward.  Despite 70.3 Boulder prize money and points being reduced from what it has been in the past, it was certainly still a very competitive field.  We arrived at the race site very early wan...

I get asked a lot about gluten free (GF) eating both by athletes and non-athletes, so I thought it would be an appropriate post: hopefully this will answer any questions you might have about pursuing a GF or low gluten diet.  I have been eating gluten free for about 5...
