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 ...

Great work by Luke McCambley, who defended his title at the weekend’s NYPD Memorial 5k. Luke’s 15:41 provided him with a 30+ second victory, and he’s knocking on the door of 5-minute miles. Congratulations to Luke and all my old friends from the NYPD.

American Triple-T Race Recap: A Lesson in Suffering

American Triple-T Race Recap: A Lesson in Suffering

The American Triple-T is a unique endurance challenge. Taking place over three days, the race begins with a super sprint on Friday night, two Olympic-ish distance races on Saturday, and a half iron distance race on Sunday. You have the option of doing the race with a teammate, and mine was good friend and stellar athlete Dr. Mike Halstead. Having a teammate affords you the privilege of drafting during the bikes on Saturday afternoon and Sunday, but you race Friday ...

Trying Realities in Triathlon Training

Trying Realities in Triathlon Training

At first I called these “My Triathlon Training Pet Peeves” but “pet peeves” have the connotation that you can’t really do anything about them and they simply annoy you. The following are unfortunate situations of training rather than “Don’t ya just hate it when…?”’s whose annoyances I can choose to indulge in or see the positives of – I choose the latter! Plus, I like alliteration.

1. The people who take the most breaks while lap swimming spot and ...

The Anatomy of a Perfect Month

The Anatomy of a Perfect Month

The Anatomy of a Perfect Month

February sucked. It was a tough month – training wise I mean. I missed a few workouts, I was on the road for 10 days, and the quality was severely lacking. The responsibility for this falls squarely on my shoulders. Coach DeLese and Cane don’t do workouts for me, they don’t miss workouts for me, and quite frankly, life happens.

So why am I writing this? Because the calendar flipped to March, and it was perfect. ...

Brooklyn Duathlon Recap

Brooklyn Duathlon Recap

I awoke just before 5:30am, a little surprised that even a local multi-sport race required an ungodly early wakeup. Fast forward to arriving at Prospect Park: Prepping the transition area was only slightly simpler than I expected, which still required two transitions but with one less discipline. I told myself that when returning from the first run, I couldn’t just toss my shoes willy-nilly like I would fling my wetsuit. There were upsides, however. An overcast sky meant ...

Medals of Courage 2014

Recently we put out a request to collect race medals for distribution to young patients at the Loma Linda Children’s Hospital and the San Diego Children’s Hospital through a great organization called Medals of Courage. With the help of JackRabbit Sports and Brickwell Cycling & Multisport, we got more than we could have imagined. To say that the response was overwhelming doesn’t begin to explain it. We received hundreds and hundreds of medals. More than I could count (or carry). ...

Brooklyn Duathlon 2014

For years we’ve opened our multisport season with the New York Triathlon Club’s Brooklyn Duathlon, and often with good results. Happily, this year was no different.

In the women’s race, last year’s top two women (Nicole Sin Quee and Jessica Purcell) were on the sidelines cheering their teammates, but we kept the victory in the family as Nicole Falcaro led from wire to wire. Cole opened with a 12:00 run for the first two miles, and when the gap had ...
