Time for a new challenge

No great inspiration other than my wife was losing weight, and I wanted to as well. I started by telling friends and family that I was going to run a 5k. Then I moved on to a 4 mile race, and last year a rather hilly and challenging 7 mile race (The Bix in Davenport, Iowa). But triathlons have always fascinated me. So that is my new challenge.

My first race is done. Looking back I know there are a couple areas I need to work on. First is by biking. I need more speed. Second is swimming technique. Someday I would like to do an Ironman so I would really like to get my technique down. L...
Biking Problems

It's been a while...I know...but the problems persist. There's been some good things too, but I'll get to those later. I have barely been on my bike this month. The problem...flat tires. I had 3 in a month. Probably would have been more, but I d...
