Fitness Friday: RunKeeper + GainFitness 1-2 Punch!

I've decided in the short amount of time that I've been working out that there are two iPhone apps that I could not live without. One I've been using for almost a year now...the other, I've been using for just a few days. What's great is that I think they really complement each other.

A Good Day of Training Deserves A Blog Post

After feeling like things were on the rocks for awhile with my training (and life, in general), I decided to make the most of my Saturday and celebrate the Ironman Championships the only way I knew how -- by swimming, biking, and running.

That was seven months ago. I cant relieve the transformation that I have undergone in such … Continue reading Be Careful What You Wish For

My First Triathlon Experience: The 2011 LA Triathlon

Ah, the LA Triathlon. My very first triathlon experience is under my belt. I'm glad that the anxiety is all over and now I can focus on bigger and better things (to be announced at the end of the post...don't skip down!).

The Disneyland Half Marathon 2011

Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend. I spent my three-day holiday at the happiest place on Earth...Disneyland! As much as I loathe big crowds of people and long lines, for some reason this weekend I shoved all of those peeves aside and had a great time. This was my first half marathon. … Continue reading The Disneyland Half Marathon 2011
