New Segment! Client Questions

New Segment! Client Questions

Today I’m beginning a new blog segment called Client Questions. A large part of my job as a triathlon coach involves communicating with my athletes.

3 seconds..Of Course! Race Recap: Central Park Tri

This is my first race recap in quite some time and there is a good reason I’m choosing this race to highlight.

2014 NYC Marathon Recap: 3:53:14

Prep My last big race of a very busy year was the NYC Marathon this past Sunday and it was one for the books. This was my 3rd time running it after going 3 and out for the lottery twice before (a perk which has since been discontinued.) I ran 2007 and 2011 where I ran a […]
