The Paine Field Runaround

I’ve been heads down the last few days concurrently writing a bunch of upcoming reviews for the next few weeks – so we’ll keep today’s post somewhat short so I can go back into the abyss of processing photos and … Read More Here

A week of swim, bike, run in Seattle

I sit here climbing away from from Seattle, with Mt.  Rainier off to my left.  It’s been a rather sunny week here this time, I think my 3rd trip to Settle in the last 3 months.  Apparently it’s been sunny … Read More Here

A really cold swim in Seattle

It should first and foremost be pointed out that I don’t particularly enjoy openwater swims where the temperature of the water is colder than that of an iced beverage.  Yet somehow, I keep getting myself into these situations. Obviously the … Read More Here

A weekend building a (cardboard) boat before the Super Bowl

I’ve got meetings this week in Seattle, so Saturday mid-day I packed things up in Paris, connected to a flight in London and flew 9 hours to Seattle.  I love these flights – the early-mid afternoon departures from Europe where … Read More Here

A weekend in Seattle playing with the Garmin Fenix and other gadgets

Important Note: I’ve published a full-scale Garmin Fenix In-Depth review (13,000 words!) over here at this link. The below were initial thoughts on beta hardware with highly beta firmware. Specific hardware changes were made since then to address some altitude … Read More Here

A bit more than a weekend in Seattle

For roughly the past week I’ve been hanging out in Seattle for work.  Of course, since Seattle is where I grew up – that also means I get to spend time with the rest of my family, and enjoy some … Read More Here

Fitting it all in: Work, Run, Fly, Blog

On Sunday evening I realized that Monday was going to be a bit of a whirlwind day – starting on one coast, and ending on the other, so I figured it might be a bit fun to simply put together … Read More Here

A Thanksgiving Weekend in Seattle

I flew out to Seattle Tuesday night, ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US – to enjoy a bit of relaxation after a rather busy fall, with my family (it’s where I grew up).  Of course, in the … Read More Here

The Seattle Century 2011 Ride Report

Since my triathlon season has largely transitioned to running for the rest of the year, I was able to mix things up a bit and enjoy doing a fun century ride with my Dad while I was out in Seattle … Read More Here

Loops around the track and airport in Seattle

This week my workouts have largely been centered around my hometown in Mukilteo, WA.  I’ve been out here for work all week, but I stay with my parents and do all my workouts in the area near my house. For … Read More Here

A weekend in Seattle

For me, this past weekend was all about recovery.  But the real kicker was… I wasn’t actually recovering from anything.  Well, any training or race event anyway. Instead, I was recovering from the effects of 40,000+ miles of travel in … Read More Here

A brief tour of my hometown…Mukilteo, WA

While the initial driver of my weekend at home was my 10 year high school reunion, and then the Kirkland Sprint Triathlon – I was also looking forward to showing off a bit of my hometown to The Girl in … Read More Here

Kirkland Triathlon 2010 Race Report

With the past week as busy as it was travel-wise, I really had no idea what exactly to expect when it came time actually throw-down at Saturday’s race.  Luckily, the distance was a sprint – otherwise I suspect the week’s … Read More Here

A week of training in Seattle

After a pretty darn successful Sunday race in the Rainman Triathlon, I got back to work – and training on Monday.  That included a relatively straightforward swim of a tad over 3,000 yards. One interesting thing is there are far … Read More Here

Christmas in Seattle

We made the 2,306 mile aeronautic trek into my hometown of Seattle late Tuesday night (well, actually, my hometown in Edmonds…but those are just details). After a short weight at the baggage claim for our bags, we were off to … Read More Here

It’s getting hot in here

The good news is that I didn’t have to run.  The bad news is I still had to bike…on the trainer…without a fan…indoors.  And thus was the start to my birthday, a nice 65 minute trainer ride on little red … Read More Here

Tour de Seattle

It’s getting hot (in) here…perhaps my new bike shorts has contributed to the record temperatures here in Seattle.  Either way, it hasn’t stopped my training.  Though this is a recovery week (well timed to a travel week), I’ve been busy … Read More Here

High Desert to High Mountains

Upon leaving the desert on Thursday evening I arrived just over two short ours later in Seattle – the next stop on the trip.  This stop wasn’t for work though, it was for a nice enjoyable weekend of Seattle and … Read More Here

Back to the track…and Seattle.

The last few days in Seattle have been great. I’ve been out here for work, but I’m able to get a ton of non-work things in as well. After arriving Monday afternoon I swung downtown to pickup my relevant conference … Read More Here

The Trifecta

Yesterday was a busy-bee day here in Seattle. I had three sports planned, plus a full day of work sandwiched in between. It started off with a hour long bike ride out to Alki point and back (from downtown along … Read More Here

Pushing through a 95MPH Headwind

I’m sitting here at 36,000 feet and cruising across over endless farmland with a solid 100+MPH headwind, working our way towards Seattle for a quick 48 hour set of meetings. I’ve traded a very wet (and warm) Washington DC, for … Read More Here

Pool Frustration

Grr…I’ve never had this much trouble trying to get in my swim workout.  Normally I swim Wednesday/Friday/Sunday.  This week I’m out in Seattle for work related stuff so I’ve converted to running/biking around Redmond and on the Burke Gilman trail, … Read More Here
