It has been quite a while since I last had much to write about so I wanted to update everyone about what has been going on with me and sports. This past year has definitely been more about me coaching than focusing on my own sports but that hopefully will change back to be more balanced. I still will be coaching a lot but I plan to renew my focus on my own sports.
This past winter, the majority of my time was spent coaching the Windy City Warriors jun...Read Full Post »

On friday I was allowed to only work a half day so I was able to get on the road to Columbus at a decent time. I was making great time until I hit a few areas of construction that added like 30-45 minutes to my trip. All in all the drive was pretty uneventful though which was good. I don't think I will ever learn to enjoy driving across indiana though....its soooo boring. I got to Matt's place around 9:30 and we hung out and watched tv/played some video games....Read Full Post »

It has been a very long time since I have had anything to write about on here. I am glad to say that has changed. I will be doing the Columbus Marathon on Sunday morning. Tomorrow I am going to work in the morning but hopefully will be leaving there no later than 1:00 in the afternoon to start my drive to Columbus. I will be staying with a friend of mine who lives just north of the city which is cool cause I haven't seen him in a while and it also will save me a...Read Full Post »

So as I said in my last blog, I have not had much of a chance to workout or race lately due to moving. A couple weeks ago, I was told about a biking criterium (crit for short) that was today. This was the first year they were including a handcycle division and they needed decent numbers so next year the division can become official with prize money and everything. I agreed to do it because even though I was out of shape, it was only going to be 30 minutes long which i...Read Full Post »

As some of you might know, in the past I have always done the peachtree 10K on the 4th of July down in Atlanta. I have had that race on my race calender on here since I made the website. Unfortunately, I was not able to make it down there for the race this year.
As most of you probably know, I just recently got a new job in the suburbs of Chicago. This required me to go up there on a couple occasions to interview while still working my job in cincinnati.&...Read Full Post »

So the competitions of the weekend have ended. As I said in my last post, Friday and Saturday were the Ohio Wheelchair Games and Sunday was the Tri for Joe duathlon at Coney Island in Cincinnati. Long story short, It was a long and tiring weekend. I'll appologize in advance because this is probably going to be a bit long...
Now for more detail...I woke up Friday morning, packed a bag and left our house around 10 in the morning to head up to Col...Read Full Post »

So tomorrow (really later today since its basically early morning) is the start of a long weekend for me in terms of competing. This weekend will more or less be for fun and to judge my conditioning at this point in the season. I have not been able to practice as much as I would have liked so I do not have super high hopes of setting many records.
Tomorrow afternoon thru Saturday morning, I will be competing in the Ohio Wheelchair Games in Columbus, Ohio...Read Full Post »

Sorry for the delay in writing about the race. Ive been busy and kept forgetting about it when I had time available. Now where to begin about the race....
So when I went to bed the night before the race, I looked at the weather forecast one more time. The forecast said there was a 60% chance of rain for the 7-9 am so I thought it was definitely going to rain. I had put plenty of sticky stuff on my gloves and push rims which was pretty much all I cou...Read Full Post »

So tomorrow is the Indianapolis Mini-Marathon. Im not exactly sure why it is called a mini-marathon since it is a half-marathon but oh well. I got a later start on my day than I really wanted to today. I had been hoping to leave my house no later than noon but instead it was closer to 12:30. I then had to make a stop at Dick's Sporting Goods to look for some kind of tac that I could use on my gloves since it is supposed to rain. I never r...Read Full Post »

So yesterday I raced in the Heart Mini-Marathon 15K in Cincinnati. This race is almost entirely on Columbia Parkway just out of downtown. For those of you who don't know Cincinnati that well, Columbia Parkway is a very hilly road. Here is a picture of the elevation chart of the race course:
