Mid Season Ups & Opportunities...

After a week of recovery and relaxation from my Kansas 70.3 win in June, my brain’s reward center was begging for more, and my sights turned to Racine 70.3 on July 20th. Not only would six weeks be perfect timing to build for another great race, it would also give Mark and I time to journey down to spectate the world’s best sporting event in Brazil—we were off to the World Cup!
Good connections and now great Brazilian friend, Nivaldo, spoiled us rotten and we had the time of our lives in Salvador, Brazil. Nivaldo is the type of guy with thoughtful intentions, a kind heart, and exceptional follow-through. We were thankful for that! In fact, he knew I was in mid-season so he even arranged for me to borrow a bike—it wasn’t my Cervelo P5 with Hed wheels but it HAD two wheels and the commuter bike...

I have a confession. I don’t cook. It’s not that I don’t know how to cook of course; it’s just that I really don’t have time before my stomach decides it needs food now or we’ll enter the hanger zone. After a long day of work and workouts I’ll typically just go for whatever is readily available in the refridgerator or cupboard.
Something most people probably don’t know about me is that I’m vegetarian, just over 11 years now. No, I don’t miss eating meat, haven’t ever really craved it since I quit meat, although I did dream about eating slices of prosciutto the other night, strange. If I did go back and eat meat I’d get an Arby’s Beef n’ Cheddar (photo)...
BEST IN THE WORLD...

Usatriathlon.org - American Gwen Jorgensen was featured in today’s Wall Street Journal. Read an excerpt from the story here and click the link below for the full feature.
Gwen Jorgensen was working as an Ernst & Young accountant when she received an unusual recruiting pitch: Why not try triathlon?
The pitch came from credible quarters—USA Triathlon, the sport’s governing body in America. But Jorgensen felt as if the organization must have mistaken her for someone else. She’d never done a triathlon. She wasn’t a cyclist. During her swimming and running career at the University of Wisconsin, she had never won gold, silver or bronze at the NCAA championships....
