Pretending to be a Pro Triathlete for a Day

2014 ITU Chicago Race Report

BFrank ITUChicago Run03Back in 2009, my first full year of “being a triathlete,” the International Triathlon Union (ITU) brought one of their World Triathlon Series (WTS) event to American soil for the first time. Their chosen location: Washington DC. Toward the middle of last year, ITU announced that Chicago would hold a WTS event for 2014 and 2015 with an age group race in which the amateurs could compete. Racing in the urban landscape of Chicago sounded really fun so I signed up.

An XTERRA Southeast Championships Race Report

Riding Out the Highs & Lows

Going into Xterra Southeast Championships in Pelham, Alabama, I was really riding a high.  After all, I had put some great work in on the bike.  I’d even won a mountain bike race.  

But something wasn’t right on race week.

18th Annual Barking Spider Bash

A Cat1/Pro XCO Race Report

18th Annual Barking Spider Bash

...it was the type of intense head-to-head racing that I live for: When all seems physically equal, keep your cards close, read the signs, figure out a way to maximize your chances of winning, and when the opportunity comes, go all in. 

Then do it all again if you have to.

My Irrational Fear of Miniature Start Cannons

An XTERRA West Championships Race Report

My Irrational Fear of Miniature Start Cannons

I’m again focused on the Xterra America Tour Series this year.  Even more focused, actually.  The 2014 tour (and my season) again kicked off at Xterra Western Championships in Lake Las Vegas, on April 13th.  Read on for a play-by-play of my first "hit out" of the season, and to learn about my (irrational?) fear of miniature cannons.

Prelude to Race Reports #'s 1-5.

It’s been quite a while since my last blog post or race report.  In my last post I discussed the importance of doing the hard things.  For 2014 it was clear that I needed to do some hard things in order to improve significantly.  There is much going on, on so many fronts.  It’s been hectic to say the least.  It’s all part of the process.  All part of being…
