March was all about cadence, though the highlight was really getting to spend a morning at the track with Coach Greg, who was in town for the annual Zwift company-wide weekly meeting. It was nice to spend time with him both to confirm the things that we're doing right and what we need to work … Continue reading Marching Forward. Big Gears. Big Gainz.
For more than a decade (since 2008), I've been fueling my athletic endeavors with First Endurance. In that time, the products have changed (oh how I miss you, Grape EFS...) and evolved (no more sucralose); new products have come (EVO1!) and gone (remember the bar?); but mostly things have stayed the same - the best, … Continue reading New Journey.

The past nine-ish weeks of training with Coach Greg Henderson have been incredibly rewarding, both in terms of getting faster but also just in terms of really enjoying the sport in a new way. While I'm obviously performance-driven, I've done … Continue reading The First Two Months. Or How Coach Hendy Made Me Understand The Track… A Little.

The fear that I still have every time I ride on the road after my accident in 2010 was something I wanted to leave behind. My first month at Zwift was actually my biggest … Continue reading The Longshot
Thought it was about time I gave an update on 2018. It's taken me a while to figure that out for myself, and I still don't know that I have a concrete plan, but I at least have - and have had - a firm enough idea now that I wanted to share it. … Continue reading What Comes Next
I couldn't figure out how to write about the race in Santa Cruz without talking about my other, bigger news in depth. And writing about the race in Santa Cruz after sharing that news seemed rather anti-climactic.
I have a new job...
A video and list of the essential tools that I bring to every race. Includes links for purchasing specific items.
Challenge Iceland was originally supposed to be a “test-flight” for Norseman, but I ended up falling in love with both the event and the country of Iceland.
