Branbury Classic

I had a solid race today at the Branbury Classic in Brandon Vermont. The event was a triathlon that consisted of a 1.5 mile kayak, 14.3 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. It was held in conjunction with a traditional sprint triathlon that swapped the kayak for a .6 mile swim. My bike speed average […]

Great Intervals

Check out Zach Caldwell’s write up of yesterday’s workout. Race Practice with Kris, Noah, & Tad


I like the first month of my training year to be as unspecific as possible.   I will begin roller skiing and strength work next month.  The following is my first month of training for the 2015/2016 race season.  AM is my morning workout and PM is my evening session. May 28th AM 1:15 run, […]

Yellowstone bummer

I had a great fall of training and I headed out to West Yellowstone very confident in my fitness. I trained very little my first few days here and my energy felt great. Things started going south on Tuesday evening. I woke up at 1:00 AM with a fever and severe nausea. I fought the […]

Moosilaukee Duel

  Classic Sprint Semi-Final in Canmore October 24th I spent the last two weeks of October training in Canmore Alberta on the Frozen Thunder ski track. The early season training was great and I raced twice in the pre-season competitions there. I placed 4th in the sprint and 2nd in the distance freestyle race. I […]

Top Notch and Wildman

Every year that I have been in NH in early August, I have raced the Top Notch Triathlon.  It is a unique event that starts with a six mile MT bike hill climb, transitions to a 1/2 mile swim across Echo Lake and finishes after a 2 mile run up Cannon Mountain.  Last year I […]


Ok, so I said I was going to update this blog once a week. I have not lived up to that goal but starting now I am going to make a strong effort to blog regularly. Because I have not written anything in nearly two months I am going to write a timeline summary of […]

Waterville Valley Pond Skimming

Over the Weekend I participated in my first ever pond skimming event at Waterville Valley.  I was asked to judge the event alongside mogul skier Hannah Kearney.   After watching about 30 spectacular wipeouts and a handful of successful crossings it was my turn to make an attempt.  I don’t own any traditional alpine equipment […]

“Go For It”

I have not been planning to race the 50k freestyle event tomorrow. However Eric Bjoernson got sick this morning and I was offered his race start. I am far from my best right now. Over the last week I have consulted with our team doctor and several physiologists who all told me that I needed […]
