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 […]
Leading up to the Race I can’t believe it’s almost July already, it has been raining so much in Boulder, it hasn’t felt like summer racing season yet. I was a little concerned as the whole week leading to the race it had been a little on the colder side, but at least the forecast […]
Starting with Ironman Puerto Rico 70.3 and I hope for every race from now on, I will write 2 different posts. One of race report and then a race review with recommendations, things I learned that nobody told me about or couldn’t find online. I hope this will be helpful for people wondering how the […]
Preface This is the second part of my report of the 2014 Ironman 70.3 World Championships, if you’d like to catch up on the first part please click here . Before I tell you about the race there were so many people that I’d like to thank, who had a big influence and impact on […]
Today I had the opportunity to ride some of the Louisville Ironman course. Once I got to 1694 I decided to make a video to share with everyone, so that in case you have never ridden or driven the course this can give you a quick glance of my favorite part of the 112 ride. I am luck enough that when I visit Louisville, I have a good friend that lets me borrow his awesome TT (Time Trial) bike, his name is TT (Tim Thomas) which matches perfectly.
If you have read my blog from the beginning you know that Louisville was my first Ironman, and actually is the race that got me hooked into triathlon. This will be the last year that will be held in August, and the weather looks to be very mild next Sunday August 24th. Next year they will have the race in October, which means that it will become a very popular Ironman, even more than what it already is.
1. Colder weather, which means faster times and more finishers
2. Right after Kona, which means that a lot of people are going to try to qualify early.
3. Longer to prepare for it, which means that it will be a more competitive race.
For now, enjoy the video and I hope that if you are competing in the Louisville Ironman, you enjoy these 10 miles as much as I did.

Preface The 2014 Boulder Ironman was my second Ironman triathlon. I trained quite a bit for it and the whole experience was amazing. The first question I get from a lot of people is: “Are you going to do another one?” My answer since I finished Boulder has been: “Absolutely”. But why? Here is my […]
It has been 4 months already since Panama 70.3, it feels like an eternity. I was hoping for Ironman Boulder 70.3 to be a good race for me in preparation for the full Boulder Ironman on August 3rd, but it was not to be. If you have been reading this blog you know that I […]
The first time I visited Grenoble, was after I met my then girlfriend, now wife, Christelle. It was in 2006 right after I had graduated from the university. I was very young, naïve and dumb. I remember not liking France much; I couldn’t speak one word of French, even though I had taken 2 weeks […]
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 […]
Last post was a little teaser of my experience from my first Ironman. Today I will write about the lessons learned, experiences and how I started training. Going through the training and completing the race is what really got me really hooked in the sport of triathlon. I know it is not easy to get […]
