  • 2015 Race Calendar

    Another year! Where does the time go??? You know what, though? 2015 is shaping up to be an epic year. Here’s why: March March 29, 2015: Rock ‘n’ Roll 1/2 Marathon, San Francisco May May 30, 2015: Ironman 70.3 Hawaii June June 7, 2015: Escape from...

  • Find Your Strong at the See Jane Run Women’s Triathlon (Race Recap)

    Racing three times in three weeks is not a wise thing to do – but some races are just so fun, they justify throwing caution to the wind. The See Jane Run triathlon – a women’s event in Shadow Cliffs, Calif. – is definitely one of those can’t-miss ones...

  • A Big Day (and a win) at the Big Kahuna

    There’s such magic in triathlon. Walk around the transition area in still-dark morning and take in the buzz of hundreds of people getting ready to race: Stand by the ocean – or lake, or river – and watch the sunrise before you jump in the water: Then...

  • That’s One Small PR for Me, One Giant Race for Mankind

    This weekend was the fifth running of the San Francisco Giants Race. And I’ll tell you what: this one seems to be getting more giant each year! There were nearly 16,000 finishers in the three distances combined (5K, 10K and half marathon) – check the...

  • GIVEAWAY: Free entry to the See Jane Run Tri & Du

    Hello, Ladies! (Sorry, boys – this one’s for the girlfriends only. You can read if you like – but we’ll be talking about lady things and feminine products. Danger!) Ha. Kidding! I’m only sharing some great news, namely that the lovely ladies at See...

  • Tri Santa Cruz: Swim, Bike, Run, Win

    I raced a sprint tri last weekend. It was fun and quick! Just like this recap, I hope. So here we go: Tri Santa Cruz is a local, somewhat low-key event in – yes – Santa Cruz, Calif. I will tell you about the “somewhat” later. First things first: location...

  • (Ironman 70.3) Recovery Accelerated with the Help of Vega Sport

    Before I completed my first Ironman 70.3 event, I thought I’d be so sore after those 70.3 miles that I’d be on bed rest for weeks. Imagine my surprise when this didn’t happen. Not back in March and most definitely not now! Here’s how my “week after...

  • Ironman 70.3 Vineman: The Amazing Race

    Registration for Ironman 70.3 Vineman 2014 opened nine months in advance and sold out within four minutes. And that is perfectly understandable. If this race recap doesn’t convince you, you should probably go see for yourself. Vineman 70.3 has got to...

  • A Sharkie Selfie and a 10K PR at the Sharks Fitness Faceoff

    If you live in San Jose – or anywhere in Silicon Valley, for that matter – and are not a San Jose Sharks fan, you either: a) don’t care about hockey at all, or b)… wait, I can’t think of anything else. People around here love their Sharks, simple...

  • The 49ers Half Marathon and the Merging of the Sports Fans

    There’s a new half marathon in town and I have a feeling it’ll make football fans happy: I got the email from the race organizers this morning and it got me thinking about all the races I’ve seen pop up in the past couple of years sponsored by (and named...
