Ironman Canada Race Report 2015

Ironman Canada was my 3rd Ironman Triathlon, I had suffered through the first two because of cramps during the run, but the thought of quitting had never crossed my mind, especially not during the bike. Ironman Canada was different, I can recall at least 4 different times on the bike when I simply wanted to stop, go to my […]

My first bike race (Time Trial)…that was not to be.

Ok, ok, I know that a Time Trial is not a real bike race, but (USAC) United States Cycling is the governing body that puts together this race and you don’t have to swim or run before or after the race, so in my book that is a bike race. This also means that I […]
