Swim: Goal 1:06-1:10, Actual Swim Time: 1:07:55 (1st out of 10 in the XC, 2:27 faster than 2nd best XC Swim split) I put my wetsuit on as soon as I got to the lake and dropped my morning clothes bag off and made my way to the water. I had about 15-20 minutes before the pros would start […]
Short Version I finished in 11:05:45, 1/54 in M60-64 AG, 326 OA. I earned a slot to Kona. Overall, I had a great day, setting PR splits in all three disciplines. I was able to finish the run strongly, and re-take the lead at about mile 20.5 of the marathon, but I didn’t actually know I […]
September 11th, 2011 – The 10 year anniversary of 9/11 was the day I did my first triathlon. A sprint tri at my local rec center where I was scared to death to of the 500yd pool swim before heading out on a 12 mile bike followed by a 5k. I finished 9th in my […]

Before the report, a few race week “thanks” are due. First, my incredibly patient wife, Kendall, was both a tremendous comfort and huge help during the week. My brother, Ethan, (also competing) and my sister-in-law, Cana, made the entire trip a blast and I think we all laughed more than anyone has a right to […]
This was my second full triathlon and my second race at Ironman Lake Placid. 2013 was a totally self-coached effort. I read a lot from Joe Friel and tried to gain training knowledge from anywhere and anyone I could. For reasons I won’t go into, I didn’t start training for IMLP 2013 until May. I was […]
July 27th will be a day I will never forget. I trained hard and stayed focused for a year to get to that day. I wanted to enjoy the day, feel strong, and keep smiling. That I did. A year ago I came up to Ironman Lake Placid to spectate. It was an amazing […]
Ironman Lake Placid was my 3rd Ironman and 1st wearing the EN colors. I had my best build to date for an Ironman by staying motivated and relatively injury free. The only modification I had to make was a significant reduction in swim volume the last few weeks due to a sore shoulder from falling off my bike. When I […]
