IRONMAN Boulder 2014 (Race Report)

Another month, another Ironman challenge! After tackling Ironman Texas in May and Ironman Coeur d'Alene five weeks later, I entered July with an enormous base of fitness. I hadn't been running much, but the knee issue that had kept me sidelined was on the mend. As August approached, so did the date of my next big race: the inaugural Ironman Boulder in Boulder, Colorado.

The home stretch!

As usual, it's been a rocky and eventful (but enjoyable) triathlon season. I've already completed two IRONMAN races and I'm only a few short weeks away from my third: IRONMAN Boulder. This, my friends, is what we like to call "the home stretch."

I'm excited for Boulder -- it's going to be a big race! While I won't be gunning for a personal best, I will be tackling the challenge in front of friends and family. That always makes for a special experience.

IRONMAN Coeur d'Alene 2014 (Race Report)

In late June, Kristine and I tackled the second of my three planned IRONMAN races for 2014. I thoroughly enjoyed myself despite injury and extreme conditions. After spending a weekend in Coeur d'Alene, it's easy to see why it's quickly become a quintessential, must-do race for North American triathletes. And it's a great course for spectators, too. Read on for a race report, impressions and additional photos!
