Double Double...

With Winter looming in the high country of Colorado, I made the easy decision to pack in two last races in one weekend before the season ended. I traveled to the Western Slope of Colorado, my old stomping ground when I attended Colorado Mesa University.

First stop was down in Montrose, CO for the Black Canyon Sprint Triathlon on Saturday morning. A race in which I was coming to defend my Overall title from last year. I ended up defending my title on a very ugly effort, but I got the win. I will post a video shortly of my effort.

Sunday we made our way up to the Olympic distance Desert Edge triathlon in Grand Junction, CO. I was feeling very good from my win on Saturday but I wasn't fond of the the early morning conditions we had to face going into this race. With a slight cold front moving in we were looking at morning temps in the low to mid 30's, and mother nature didn't disappoint.

We arrived at the race site early and ready eager to get this race started., but I will admit those feelings faded fast when we arrived and saw that the temps would literally be in the low 30's at 8am, our race start time. I quickly racked my bike and headed straight back to the car until i was ready to head down to the lake for my pre-race warmup. The race organizers moved the start time back 15 minutes but that didn't help much at all. Once I got my mind and attitude back to race mode I was ready to rock.

I ended up finishing 6th Overall and 2nd in age group. I lost this race to better athletes today (for Now), but am very happy with how everything came through today. It's been a short season for me due to the injury I acquired earlier in the year, but I left the season on a great note. I'm looking forward to next season as I have my sights set on Ironman Coeur 'd Alene as well as returning back to Vegas for the 70.3 World Championship.

Life has two rules: #1. Never quit. Rule #2. Remember Rule #1.

Tour Of Vail

I made this video for my Roommates/BFF's at the Tour of Vail/USA Crit Championships in Vail, CO.
Conor ended up with flat with only 8 laps left to go while Kevin ended up fifth overall. A bitter sweet race knowing that they including myself knew they could have taken the Overall win. No Doubt!!!!!! Congrats to both of them on an amazing season. You can follow these guys Here: Conor and Kevin

Oktoberfest Sprint

Here is a short video recap we put together of my race at the Oktoberfest Sprint triathlon this past weekend. It was my first sprint in over a year and I am very pleased with the result. It felt great to rub elbows again with the gazelles of the sport, taking 9th overall and 2nd in age says a lot after coming off  3 months of little to no training since my injury. Up next is another sprint triathlon in Montrose, CO and then the Desert Edge triathlon in Grand Junction, CO. Ill be sure to bring you guys more race footage, enjoy the footage and let me know what you think.

Summit Assault hill climb.

With a shortage of stones these days I was able to kill two birds with one this last weekend. With Fall fully upon us here in Colorado, we took advantage of the weekend and drove up to the high country to check out the beautiful scenery that Fall has to offer. But not without a good training day included.

Today's training included a 5mile Summit Assault trail running race from the base of Granby Ranch up to the summit of the ski resort. I must say the race organizers of Summit Assault did a fantastic job for their first year. I encourage everyone to include this race on their schedule next season. Well organized, perfectly marked course, breath taking scenery and course, and an amazing staff. You can check them out here at

.Our ride from the finish back to base camp.

The start: no warm up as the climb begins immediately.   
I'm either giving or receiving a pep talk.

And we're off!!!

The "flattest" section of the course.

Amazing colors to help distract you from the suffer of climbing 2000 ft

Taking 2nd place Overall. More breath taking views at the finish

Over 2,000 riders were on this climb, a very cool scene.

Business call, or so that's what Conor says.

A day of Altitude

Depending on who you talk too, Colorado has about 53 Mountains above 14,000 Ft.
Here is a quick photo dump from a recent 14er (Mt. Bierstadt) we scaled this last week. Climbing a 14er is an experience that can't be described. So here are a few photos that made the cut.

 Early start to an amazing day.

So it begins
