Making Triathlon Great Again. #RaceLocal

Always bring the disc. – Cam Hill, Local Arizona triathlete legend Early in the season, my good friend Brian Folts rolled up to the start line at Victoria 70.3 on his aluminum training wheels, Gatorskin tires, road helmet, and cables dangling from bike.  I told him three words… Clean it up. Two months later, he […]

Ironman Canada – Smile

When the pain comes, you know what I do? I smile. – Chris McCormack I love sport comeback stories. Jonny Brownlee’s recent victory came at the perfect time. It was inspiring to watch before my Ironman because it was his first World Triathlon Series victory in two years. Jonny had many doubters.  “People have very short […]

Kim 2nd Overall at Ocala HITS 70.3!

News flash – Kim is on a roll!  Kim is a coach’s dream.  She not only works her butt off, she also communicates well, listens, and constantly provides feedback.  I feel like we’ve “clicked” from day one and her race results prove it.  One aspect where she particularly shines (that is often very tough to […]

Bartlett triathlon represented Becca’s one year anniversary in this sport.  Her progress in this sport has been remarkable. Started from the bottom… And now she’s here.

Flagstaff Traincation

This past weekend I hosted a Peak Tri Coaching / ONE Multisport training camp in Flagstaff.  It gave us the opportunity to escape the 120-degree heat wave in Phoenix and train in slightly cooler weather at elevation. The camp was full of laughter, pedicures, pickle juice drinking contests, pizza eating, delicious desserts, David Tindall beatdowns, lengthy […]

The rules of tri camp were […]

Ironman Arizona 2015: Antifragile

You don’t play triathlon. You play soccer; it’s fun. You play baseball. Triathlon is work that you can leave you crumpled in a heap, puking on the roadside. It’s the physical brutality of climbing Mount Everest without the great view from the top of the world. What kind of person keeps coming back for more […]

Vegas 70.3 Worlds 2012 – Refusing to Fold

I made it to the big show of 70.3 racing.  It was the half Ironman World Championships in Las Vegas.  I trained incredibly hard for this event and I was going to leave it all out there.  No regrets. Balls to the wall racing. I stayed in Vegas with Angi and JR. We were the […]

Ironman Boise 28.4: Holy Iceballs

With my Vegas spot secured, I felt at ease racing Boise. Though, I wasn’t going to take this race lightly. I was going to use this race to really test myself on the bike. My coach wanted me riding 10-20 watts higher than Florida. I knew this would really push me to my limits, but […]

Florida 70.3 – VEGAS, Baby!

I set a goal this year to qualify for the Las Vegas 70.3 World Championships.  To be completely honest, I thought the chances for me to qualify were slim to none at the beginning of the year.  I’ve consistently trained, but I lacked confidence. I never believed I was the caliber of athlete to qualify […]
