What Running My First Triathlon Taught Me About Life
The future is an accident.
I tried triathlon and can't get enough
From beginner to half ironman
How it all started...

Inspired to Get Fit for Wedding
Old and Creaky
From sedentary to World Championships
An Addiction is Born
Six years ago I was 44 years old and weighed 260+ pounds. If anybody had suggested to me that at age 50 I would complete a sprint-length triathlon I would have rolled my eyes and grabbed a doughnut!
Race To The Race
My race from obesity to Vineman 70.3
First Tri Experience, Start to Finish
This was the question I got pretty frequently, with some variations that included, “why the heck” and “what were you thinking?” Honestly? I really don’t know what specifically sparked the idea.
Shorter than Planned but Still Sweet
The night before the race when we dropped our bikes in transition we saw the swim course laid out in the water and those buoys looked SO FAR APART!
My First Olympic Triathlon
I looked at the swim buoys and start thinking, "Man! How am I ever going to swim that? That looks like a very long distance from the bridge. I have never done it in one go." There's no turning back.

Bucket List Becomes Reality: My First Tri
It has been a bucket list item for years...something to do before I'm 25. Okay, maybe I'll push that to 30. Okay, maybe I'll let it go altogether.
My First Triathlon: Tejas Triathlon
Most people could do this, probably much faster than I could. But the beauty of the event was the energy, to be around so many people who are so motivated and goal-oriented.
NanjingMan 2010 - Shanghai Expat Completes Her First Triathlon
Training was harder than I ever imagined it would be. I've always considered myself athletic, but never really had a need to push myself beyond my comfort zone. This was so different and so rewarding!
