Two really cool things recently happened

So I meant to post after the first really cool thing happened, but as days passed I was like, “Well, maybe that can wait.”  But then the other really cool thing happened this past Friday, and so I decided it was a sign from the multiverse that I ought to write about both of them already, if only so I can share my excitement in a contained and thoughtful way i.e., more than just turning to Brian and going, “Holy shit, I can’t believe this is happeninggggg!” 964 more words

2015 Austin 70.3 Half Ironman Race Report


  • Age: 41 year old male
  • Weight: ~195 lbs
  • FTP 262

Short Version

Overall, I walked away from this race a little disappointed. Out of the six 70.3 distance races I’ve completed this was my 5th slowest (in case you’re wondering my slowest was a 5:50:47 in Oceanside in 2014 – a bike course that destroyed me & a major calf cramp that left me gimping for 6 miles). 2,323 more words
