About Me

I'll make you laugh, or break my neck trying. This is usually accomplished with daily bouts of swimming, biking and running. A former "chub-a-holic," I got fit and healthy the good old fashioned way and went from a mid-pack athlete to top age group runner and triathlete. I'm a Writer and USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach. I guess that makes me part Tina Fey and part Jillian Michaels. Visit my coaching site at www.fomotraining.com

Biking Queen

(apologies to Abba)

Carrie is in her element now! She tore up the last and longest lap with a 17.23 mph lap for a total bike time of 6:40:24. That's a 16.74mph average speed and good enough to move her up 230 places to 1049th overall, in a male-dominated field. Congratulations Carrie! After a 3:14 transition we just watched her run past the Gazelle tent - she looked tired and hot (it is 95 degrees & she has been going for 8 hours and 45 minutes) but happy, running with great form and two thumbs way, way up!
