Cyclocross is FUN

This past weekend I spent a fair amount of time hanging out with my Team 10 Barrel teammates at the cross races here in Bend, OR.

2015 Deschutes Dash Olympic Triathlon – Race Report

The three weeks after Ironman absolutely flew by!

Race Report: Aluminum Man Triathlon

Well there is a first time for everything, and early on in the bike I made a wrong turn – I’ll rewind a little bit, but I wanted to explain that right away.

Race Report: Lake Stevens 70.3

Lake Stevens was my 2nd Half Ironman race, and the prep for this race was very different than the prep for Austin 70.3 last October.

Life Update & Race Report: Deschutes Dash Olympic Triathlon

What a summer it has been! Wow, the natural place to start is definitely going to be that I married the woman of my dreams on June 7th.
