Season 5, Episode 1


2010 was my first foray into the world of triathlon. 2011 was all about asking Kristine to marry me. I was too aggressive in 2012, and plagued by injury. Two of my best friends helped make the 2013 season an absolute blast - a return to just having fun and racing fast.

Happy holidays!

Gosh, the past few weeks have been busy ones! Pardon the relatively scrambled nature of this post -- Kristine and I have been running around all week/weekend trying to tie up lose ends and get packed for our upcoming trip. We're gearing up for a long haul: we're on our way to the Philippines to spend Christmas and New Year's with Kristine's family. It'll be my first trip to that side of the world -- I'm excited!

I think I last wrote in mid-November, before Kristine and I set out for a thoroughly enjoyable twelve-day trip to New York and Pennsylvania to visit family and celebrate Thanksgiving. I'm happy to report that the trip was a total success on all fronts: we were able to catch up with so many friends in New York City, see a Broadway show (and a taping of SNL!) and then spend time with both of my parents' families in good ol' Bucks County. And I managed to run over 70 miles during that time!

Shoe Experiment Update #1

Several weeks ago, I decided to put two new pairs of shoes - Newton Sir Isaac S's and Hoka One One Stinson Tarmac's - through their paces. I've now logged 30-35 miles on each shoe and have come to at least one preliminary conclusion: my Hokas were the wrong size.
