After running for most of my life, I decided at twenty-four that I should become a triathlete. Here is the account of some of my training and races.


A complete listing of the triathlons in which I have completed and my results are available on my triathlon race results page.

I have also done a couple longer writeup for races. They are not very entertaining, but might give you a few details about that course.

I do not really have any training advice to pass along, as I am a newbie and not a good coach regardless. I mainly just train hard and put in the hours. Some of the groups I train with occasionally in the Cedar Rapids area to try to improve:

And finally, my gear list of what I bring to races, although I would not recommend it as a guide.
