Rev3: Salute 2017 Race Report
Rev3: Salute 2017 Race Report

Rev3’s Salute to the Military Trithlon is the second race of the 2017 Rev3 Virginia Sprint Series. Sprint races that allow a quick recovery fit in perfectly as short fun events, as my two main goals for this year is to race in one XTERRA race and do one long course race which is scheduled later this year in October. What makes Rev3’s Sprint series so appealing is all the races are close to home (except for the newly added Williamsburg Sprint on June 8th). By combining some short speed work in the beginning of the season, then changing to long distance work after July, this will keep me strong all the way through October1. I’ve noticed a trend that I get tired of training/racing in September. This year will be a mental challenge along with a physical challenge. ↩ [ Read More... ]

Adventure Addicts Racing: XTERRA Charlottesville 2017 Race Report
Adventure Addicts Racing: XTERRA Charlottesville 2017 Race Report

I’m not sure when I first heard about XTERRA races, but most likely it was from Dave sometime last year when team members were discussing what events everyone was thinking about for 2017. When XTERRA was described as “a triathlon race, but with dirt” I was instantly intrigued as I’ve been racing triathlon for the past couple of years, and also participated in a couple of “off-season” orienteering events which focuses on navigation in the woods… and now there was something that combines both!

Rev3: Westfields 2017 Race Report

The 2017 race season has officially started!!! This one was close as it almost didn’t happen. Ever since Cherry Blossom 10 Mile Run my left calf has not been the same. Then, when you combine a weak calf with TKD Family Class of spinning back hook kicks… you will get a pulled calf muscle. To make things worse, I haven’t been the smartest injured runner as I ran a 5k (while traveling in Costa Rica for work) where I strained it again, and then felt MORE pain during the Speed Sherpa team training camp last weekend while doing our Sunday nine mile fun run. I am NOT the brightest injured athlete. [ Read More... ]

Conquer the Hill at Miller School of Albemarle 2017

It is very humbling when you think of yourself as a decent “age group” athlete, but then you step into someone else’s playground and you quickly discover your skills at this new sport is average at best. That was one of many feelings at the end of today’s Conquer the Hill at Miller School of Albemarle race. What were the other feelings? [ Read More... ]

Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run 2017
Cherry Blossom Ten Mile Run 2017

In preparation for some longer events towards the end of this year, I decided to sign up for a couple of fun non-triathlon events to get myself mentally ready to endure what my mind may provide while physically punishing my body. This weekend’s event wasn’t physically difficult as I have done half marathons distances before, but it was one of the longer runs of the 2017 race season. The other mental challenge was to attend a larger event that included thousands of people vs. the local triathlon events that don’t have more than a couple hundred athletes. [ Read More... ]
