From Concept to Competition – NJ State Triathlon Recap

One year and one month ago, I emailed Coach Cane and declared my desire to do triathlon. One week and two days ago, I competed in my first Olympic distance triathlon, the NJ State Triathlon.

I drove out Herb, my boyfriend/race photographer/personal cheerleader/gear assistant to West Windsor, NJ on Saturday afternoon to pick up my race ...

Nike Run NYC and Me

Nike Run NYC and Me

Until now I have avoided publicly commenting about the Nike Run NYC changes. And to a large extent, I want to continue to avoid sharing my opinion about the new program, as ultimately the decision to change is entirely up to Nike. They fund the free program and are entitled to do what they want with it, so in that respect, my opinion does not (and should not) matter.

A bit of history. In 2002 I was ...

Tri One On Race Takeaways

When it has been just shy of a month since a race, the minutest of details, such as the severity of the waves, the slippery sand on the boardwalk, and the potholes on the bike course, are tougher to remember than the main takeaways. (Actually, the potholes I remember. Holy derailleur adjustment!)

I raced the Tri One On Sprint Triathlon on Sunday, June 15th. A 500m swim, 10 mile bike, and 3.0 mile run awaited me on the waters and ...

Philly Olympic Race Report – Crash and (Road)Burn

Philly Olympic Race Report – Crash and (Road)Burn

Not finishing a race sucks. It is the worst feeling in the world; that DNF sitting next to your name is the triathlon equivalent of the scarlet letter. No matter the reason, you never feel good about it. But you know what sucks a lot worse? Being hurt. Today I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to walk around on two legs, relatively pain free.

Yesterday (June 22nd) was the Philadelphia Olympic Triathlon. I raced it last year, and it ...
