MIA

Yes, I've been missing in action. The sun is finally shining here in Panama City Beach and the temperature has been perfect. Not to mention some friends of mine are in town with their new baby - so lots of time spent at a gulf front rental as well. Could life really get any better? Um, yeah, how about rocking a photo actually looking somewhat 'good' in a cap and goggles!


That photo was taken by my friend (and super bike guru) Steve at the White Sand Tri last Saturday. What a great race. We had a great turn out from the local triathletes which always makes a good time. Many of them being first timers!

I'm not going to go into a long race report - so here is the short version:
Swim was flat and I made it out without being kicked. Bike was a three loop 16ish mile course. No flats, no problem. Run was a 5K along the beach - rocked out in 22min-ish so I was happy with that. 2nd in age group.

Here are some photos:





Training is going well. Coach Chuck kicked my ass in the pool yesterday. Man I love repeat 100's then following by some 'make me barf' repeat 50's. Double fist pump. Thankfully Big J was all about some Thai food last night - so after a hard workout and some awesome Thai food, I was in food coma until about an hour ago:)


Hope everyone had a great weekend!!

I love the way you recover after a race. That beer looks really good!

What is that one guy doing with his belly in the one photo? Funny.

That is an awesome race photo, especially since you are still wearing cap and goggles. I thought nobody looked good like that, but apparently I was wrong. The smile says so much!

Congrats on 2nd place!!!
