About Me

My photo
Austin, Texas, United States
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

We're Here!

140.6 BABY!!! Hanging by the side of I-10 in Las Cruces, NM

After 1000+ miles, 2 1/2 hours of sleep and one small freakish storm, we've made it to the Greater Phoenix/Tempe/Scottsdale region. Our house is GREAT complete with a small pool, hot tub and plenty of comfy beds and showers for the eight of us who will be bunking throughout the weekend. I'll definitely be soaking my legs in the hot tub to loosen them up from the car ride!

Tomorrow morning, we pick my parents up from the airport and then head to the Race Site for check-in and all of the associated mayhem and nerves that are sure to accompany that visit.  I'll also be having lunch with the T3 contingent consisting of nearly 25 team members!

It's hot and the wind is blowing...It must be Ironman time
