My Rules on Nutrition

By | Nutrition | No Comments

Through my racing, consulting and speaking, the topic that I get asked about most, without question, is nutrition. People want to know what they should eat, when to eat, what to avoid, and how much to consume. Even those inquisitive individuals who do their own research and investigation become confused by all of the discussion that exists in regards to diet. Indeed, the further you dig, the more you may be subject to paralysis by analysis.

Oh Tennessee River: Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga

By | Racing | No Comments

Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga marked my first return to real racing—and by “real,” I mean back competing against some of the best triathletes in the world—since being hit by a car last September. I had performed a test run, competing at a smaller Olympic distance race about a month before this one, but there were still many, many questions about my fitness level; my performance; and, most importantly, my confidence and psyche. My training leading into 70.3 Chattanooga had been largely low key. I had accumulated a solid amount of volume, but after so many months without focused training while my…
