A look back at my 2nd year as a Pro Triathlete
As my second season as a professional triathlete comes to an end, I thought to share a few notes about what I have learned during my racing journey.
The Power of the Team
To call the 2021 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah, an epic race is an absolute understatement. Every single weather condition imaginable, aside from snow or the bomb cyclone...
Overcoming the uncontrollable, the journey known as Ironman
There is more to triathlon than Ironman but when you decide to take the plunge into long course triathlon there are many factors out of your control in both training and racing. How you deal with them is what separates finishers from dreamers. Michael has many great words on his experience dealing with the ups and downs of training and racing his first Ironman.
Des Moines 70.3 Race Report
Des Moines 70.3 turned 41.4…My first race in the professional field. But what does that mean? To my non-triathlon friends the difference may be confusing as I have competed in World Championships before, so…isn’t that like the top level?
Race Report: IM 70.3 Gulf Coast, 2021
To prepare I had learned how swim properly rather than breast stroke, had bought a road bike (my first ever!), learned to clip in and out, bought a cheap tri kit and trained with my friends Dad, who luckily is a Triathlon Coach.
You just never know!
Reaching back in the archives, in 2004, four weeks before Kona I had a bike crash, broke left Femur, three screws and lots of mental anguish later, Doctor said: Your running days are over. I said: You can’t be serious. Then I remembered, I had signed up for Lake Placid 2005 (yeah, yeah, it was a long time ago) but it seems like yesterday. Rays of hope, I started slowly getting back in shape and did my first race early March.

A little more went into Gulf Coast 70.3 than any race I had done before. Prior to October 2019, I was self-coached in the swim and bike, and had a run specific coach (@TrailATL). Big plans were set for the 2020 season, but we all know what happened to those. With the unknown component of when racing would resume, my coach (@JPElitetri) kept uploading workouts and I kept on truckin’ through them. The weeks leading up to the race is when things got really tough.
Race Report: Our Own Bud Plant 70.3
Due to Covid-19, so many races have been cancelled or postponed since early spring. I was signed up to compete Ironman Muncie 70.3 on 7/11/20 which seemed like it would happen. We received an email with new protocols to keep athletes and volunteers safe. They video showed us the changes they made including a sign up for bike drop-off so that they can control the number of athletes coming to the transition area the day before the race.
Race Report: Buster Britton Memorial Triathlon
Had a chance to race at the Buster Britton Memorial Triathlon a few weeks. I was able to sneak into the top 10 and take home Masters only because my friend Chris Johnson finished in the top 3. Here’s a quick recap of the race.
A Look Back: Catherine Meihofer Shares Her Journey to Kona
During the coronavirus pandemic and in a world that’s social distancing, there’s not a lot of triathlon activity to get energized about with race delays and cancellations. Like many sport fans, I’m turning to EPSN and IRONMAN drawing inspiration from past performances, iconic finishes and underdogs taking the win. As I reflect on my greatest accomplishment in my 20+ years of triathlon, I thought I’d share the memory.
