No Whining: Loving Father/Daughter Edition

No Whining: Loving Father/Daughter Edition

With all the recent discussions of doping, cheating, vengefulness and other less-than-savory aspects of sports, it’s time to go into the holiday weekend on a positive note.

The Daily Mail recently published the story of Rick van Beek, a father who has completed a triathlon carrying his 13-year-old cerebral palsy-afflicted daughter. You can read more about Mr. van Beek and his daughter Maddy at the Daily Mail site.

And on that note, I wish all my friends, teammates, readers and their ...

Order Has Been Restored

If you take a glance at the 40-44 women’s age group results from last weekend’s Percy Sutton 5k, you’ll notice a few things. First, the lovely Nicole Sin Quee (who is the mother of my son yet was originally listed as a male) is now credited with second place in the 40-44 age group. Nnenna Lynch, a former All-American at Villanova (and also the mother of two young children) is now the winner of the AG.

Conspicuously absent from ...

God Bless Mebmerica

Today Nicole and Simon bumped into former NYC Marathon winner and Olympic medalist Meb Keflezighi on their run in Central Park. Having met Meb briefly at a couple of appearances, I knew what a gracious and down-to-earth person he is, but it’s still pretty awesome that he took the time to pose for this photo. 

I was reminded of a post I wrote ...

No Ironman NY? No Problem?

No Ironman NY? No Problem?

Just to be clear, there is still no definitive word on Ironman NY’s status for 2013. It originally opened with a hefty $1200 price tag and a shortened 15:30 cutoff.  Due to a combination of factors including outcry over the price, and slow registration, the good folks at WTC suspended registration shortly thereafter. The pros and cons of IMNY can be debated. On the one hand, the race presents some unique logistical challenges, you swim in less than pristine water, ...

The Key to a Great Six-Pack? Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll

The Key to a Great Six-Pack? Sex, Drugs & Rock ‘n’ Roll

Open up just about any health related magazine and you’ll find an article on how to improve the appearance of your abdominal muscles. Lots of exercises – some simple, some elaborate, some useful, some which just get you better at doing the exercise but likely have no particular benefit in the real (or athletic) world. Regardless, the truth is that the appearance of your abs is largely dependent on your body composition. If you’re carrying around too much fat, your ...
