Reston Century Ride 2017
Reston Century Ride 2017

On Sunday I completed my first Century (100 mile) ride! Just one more step closer to getting ready for my long race this October, but has boosted my confidence that I may actually complete the race and not fall over from physical exhaustion. [ Read More... ]

Rev3: Sizzling Sprint 2017 Race Report
Rev3: Sizzling Sprint 2017 Race Report

Rev3 Sizzling Sprint is the last sprint race hosted by Rev3, and my last Sprint for 2017. I was hoping to have an improvement since May where the Salute Sprint was held and is the same course, plus it is nice to think that over the past couple of months I would improve in at least one of the events (at least just a little). Being the last race of the Rev3 Series, there was double pressure for me to get on the podium to protect my overall standing and try to win my Age Group division. [ Read More... ]

Rev3: Williamsburg Sprint 2017 Race Report
Rev3: Williamsburg Sprint 2017 Race Report

Rev3 Williamsburg Sprint was a VERY last minute addition to my race schedule as I officially didn’t register until Wednesday July 5th for a race that was on the 8th. I originally paid for four Rev3 Virginia Sprint Series (VSS) races back in November of 2016, and sometime between purchasing my race package and the past couple of months, Rev3 added the Williamsburg Sprint to the VSS (which left me susceptible in losing my VSS “Yellow Jersey” 1). To make sure I stay competitive in VSS points, I received approval from the boss decided to make the quick three hour drive to Williamsburg, pick up a hotel, and begin racing at 6:30 am Saturday morning. Can’t take full credit for that analogy, but I’m using it. Thanks Josh! ↩ [ Read More... ]

Rev3: Montclair Sprint 2017 Race Report
Rev3: Montclair Sprint 2017 Race Report

Rev3’s Montclair is the only race this year that I have previously participated in 2016, which make it a great opportunity to compare and see how I am improving. Training has been going well for the past few months so I’m eager to see how my fitness is improving not only since January, but also when compared to last year. This is not always safe as race conditions change due to weather or other circumstances… but both 2016 and 2017 conditions are very similar. [ Read More... ]

Rev3: Salute Sprint 2017 Race Report
Rev3: Salute Sprint 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... ]
