Guest Athlete Race Report – Maddie Takes on the Lake George Triathlon

I have this friend who just started racing triathlons. She is 8 years old and already crushing it. A friends of mine, Doug, has a few kids the youngest being his daughter Maddie. I got to know her quite well during our 5 hour car ride down to Eagleman in June. She got to see Doug and I complete a Half Ironman, which I think fueled even further her desire to keep training! I promised her a chance to guest... read more

107 Fire Island 5K – 18:32

105 Team Championships 5M – 29:58

This weekend was both the NYRR Team Championships AND the NYC Triathlon (one of my favorite races of all time). Friday night we had Bojana and Brian over for some pre race carbo loading. Abs made some pasta with calamari, shrimp and white beans. It was perfection. RACE DAY I awoke at 6AM (my usual wake... read more

A Love Shared at The River Cafe

Last night was the perfect evening to take the water taxi. We took it from Midtown over to Brooklyn to the ‘A Love Shared’ fundraiser for ALS awareness. A few of Chef Gerry Hayden’s (owner and executive chef of North Fork Table & Inn – Southold, NY) culinary buddies were gathering to support him and his fight with ALS. ALS is a serious disease. In my ‘triathlete’... read more
