The Training Season begins

I hope all is well out there. The training season officially kicked off with a good week of training followed by racing the PF Chang's 1/2 Marathon in Phoenix. The race went well and I am happy with it.. especially after a 3hr+ bike ride the day before. right at 6:20 mile pace for a 1:23.01... The race also served as a good beta test for Trakkers as we had many athletes out there testing the devices. The testing went great and I look forward to the official launch of it.. keep checking www.trakkersgps.com..

I also have been training with my Friend from Boulder - Carole Sharpless. She is a hoot and holler as normal.. I am looking forward to my lunch she owes me after losing a bet on the PF Chang's race... can we say "Ruth Chris Steakhouse" .. just kidding I am sure it will be more like taco bell value menu.. but the company is all that matters..

So only about 15 weeks to St George Ironman and then time to think about the Rev2Tri races (www.rev3tri.com).. so the training is in full mode... looking forward to running in my new Saucony shoes..

BTW if you have not tried the new formula for First Endurance's Optygen HP - you should.. it is awesome... Thanks Robert and tema for making great products..

Finally a quick shout to my Coach Bettina a Racelab (www.racelab.com) who is continuing to find new ways to push me and work to get me stronger and faster... to deal with me she should get paid a lot more.. really she is great.. thanks Bettina and thanks everyone who was cheering on Sunday..

Happy Training.
