104 War at the Shore – 1:48:06

The War at the Shore was a triathlon I was particularly looking forward to as two of my athletes were also racing. They have been crushing their training and I had really good feelings about what was to happen. I rode up to Amy’s apartment to hitch a ride with her. I forgot that riding a bike at 3PM in street clothes and a giant transition bag is super challenging! After packing up our bikes we were... read more

What Makes us Happy

What are you doing? Where are you going? What have you done? I find that I occasionally lose touch with what makes me, ‘me.’ I grew up an artist. I went to art school. I painted, drew, sculpted, and hung out with people who on the outside might seem odd but inside were secretly creative geniuses. It was not until later in life I discovered athletics. Sometimes, as we drift through life, we... read more

Treacherous Training

We... read more

Last season was a bust for me due to my ongoing knee problem. I only raced 1 (that’s right 1) triathlon! My friend Doug suggested we rock Eagleman 70.3 to set off the season. It would be his first attempt at the distance and I was excited to be a part of that. We left might Manhattan at noon on Saturday. In tow we had Doug, his fiance Danika (also a friend of mine) and his youngest daughter Madison.... read more

102 Boston Run to Remember Half Marathon – 1:22:45

Abs n I caught a late afternoon train on Friday, barreling due north towards Boston. I love train rides. You can bring your own food and beer, plus the odds of a crash are pretty low. There is also something timelessly romantic about train travel. Arriving in Beantown we noted that it was a bit cooler than our weather apps had let on. This would be helpful for Sunday. Abbe works in the food industry so... read more
