Adventure Enablers: Pocahontas Run and Ride 2018
Adventure Enablers: Pocahontas Run and Ride 2018

It’s another race weekend and once again I find myself participating in a well organized Adventure Enabler event! The weather was MUCH better when compared to 2018 Early Mountain Vineyards cold needle infested ice rain that we had a couple weeks ago. The morning had a slight chill with temperatures just under 40°F, but by 9:00 am you could feel the sun warming the air and you just knew it was going to be a good spring day. [ Read More... ]

Adventure Enablers: Early Mountain Vineyards Run and Ride 2018

First two races of the year are already in the bag with Adventure Enablers Run/Ride events at Early Mountain Vineyards. I did not perform very well last year, so I had a lot of personally imposed pressure to not only hit my goals for the MTB, while “trying” to be mindful that I am just over two weeks into my recovery from surgery.

Adventure Enablers: Resolution Trail Run 2018
Adventure Enablers: Resolution Trail Run 2018

Short Race report, as I was able to participate in Adventure Enablers’ Resolution Run for the second year in a row. The original goal was to run with the family like last year1, so I wasn’t thinking about actually “racing”… but more as a motivator for the younger two as they were going to attempt the 5k vs. the 1mile fun run. The 11° temperature was a little too cold for these East-Coast kids. ↩ [ Read More... ]

EX2 Adventures: Fall Backyard Burn - Riverbend 2017

Not really a race report, more of just letting people know I am still functioning after Ironman Louisville (IMLOU) and that I’m out having fun! Trying to get outside to enjoy the lovely Virginia trails during the fall season, now that the fall foliage is in full effect and I don’t have to worry about getting injured and jeopardizing my “A race”.

IRONMAN: Louisville 2017 Race Report
IRONMAN: Louisville 2017 Race Report

It is impossible to describe the feeling when crossing the finish line of your first IRONMAN. The sense of accomplishment is obvious, along with the overwhelming joy of finishing a race. There is also a sadness in that your long-time (almost a year) commitment of training for this one day… and it has now come to fruition. Since my audience consists of 12-15 people which is split between immediate family (who think I’m insane) and fellow triathletes who may or may not have completed a Full 140.6 triathlon, I hope to have something interesting to describe and keep everyone entertain on this post. So sit down, get your Nuun and Stringer gels ready, then buckle-up for a long “Full” Race Report post of IRONMAN Louisville 2017. [ Read More... ]
