Brief Update

Wow! It has been a busy few months since I wrote last. After coming in 8th at the US Mountain Running Championships, I had my mind set on Ironman Lake Placid hoping, beyond hope, that a top place would allow me to qualify for the World Ironman Championships at Kona. You can read Danny's summary here (I promise I will write a race report soon).

 As you probably know, despite my win, I came up a few points short which meant I had to have a quick turn-around to prepare for Ironman Mont Tremblant three weeks later. Yikes!

Mont Tremblant was tough! I gave it my all on tired legs and am happy with my second place finish. (I promise I will write a race report soon for this one too). The points I got from that race was enough to secure a Kona race start so I am doubly happy because of that.

Until I get around to writing up something, here's the official Ironman video with a quick little synopsis.

Just wanted to let everyone know I am still alive and on my way to recovery with my sights set on Kona in October. Yippee!

Just in case it is a while before I write again, always make sure to check out the blog I share with Danny as he is more consistent with his reports.
