Schedule Set in Stone... (at least for now!)

After reviewing some things I think that finally this is it! It sure looks challenging but I am looking forward to all of the 255.5 Miles of racing that wait ahead of me. NATT and its volunteers deserve every single one of the miles I will race.

Columbus Distance Classic - Half Marathon


Finally is here...the Start of the Season!

I am looking forward to race day this coming Saturday April 1st. It is always really exciting to have the changes of the seasons and finally start taking off many of the layers that we have to wear during the winter. I am specially glad since I like to be warm I always make sure that I am properly dressed. Liz (My Lovely wife) makes fun of me for being so concerned about the clothing... what can I say? I was born in Venezuela where summer year around.

The training for the Columbus race has gone really well. The legs are feeling good and should be able to hold the pounding of the event. Although, my right achilles tendon has been tight in the last couple of weeks after a good warm it should be good to go. The weather will be factor this weekend. It does not look like the weather the runners had last year (snow fall, wet, windy, cold...) it might be wet and cool. At this point, it looks all right but it could always be better so let's hope for that.

The goal ultimately is to finish the race but really I would like to beat my PR of 1:36.47. Anything below that number will be great. But if I can make it below 1:32.00 that would outstanding!


Sometimes I can predict the future believe it or not... This is what Liz will be doing sometime after the race when she reaches her new PR...

Stay tuned for a report after the race... Wish me Luck!!!

Who do you think this is...? Posted by Picasa

Just getting started...!

Dear friends,

Here we go! Let's see if during the summer I can keep you up to date with my queste of racing triathlon miles for the NATIONAL ALLIANCE for THROMBOSIS and THROMBOPHILIA - NATT.

255.5 Miles are waiting ahead of me this summer. It should be an incredible time as I make my way through 6 races all around Ohio, Michigan, and West Virginia.

If you are at the races be in the lookout for the guy wearing the "Polka-Dot" outfit. He may blow right by you and all you will see are the red dots all over the back of his jersey.

So, come back sometime and checkout my postings about training and other preparations for the races to come.

I will be talking to you all later.

Kindest Regards,

The "Clot Buster"

My 60th Triathlon Finish !!!
