My mom and dad used to call me “Squirrel”. I used some of my squirrel skills during this epic training weekend. See if you can spot them. #teamorca #guforit #saltyssquad #orangemud

Recently miss a goal you wanted to achieve? How do you deal with it? Hear how I dealt with missing my goal at XTERRA Oak Mountain. Sometimes you just have to step back, clear your mind, reset… then get back to work.

What SwimRun Gear Do I Need? PART DEUX

Well, this took a lot longer to get out that I wanted.  I had most of it recorded, except for a camera whose batteries died in the middle of the shoot.  I re-shot what was needed, but then THAT camera was stolen.  Arrrgh!

Anyhow, I pieced together clips from the first take and re-shot some last night to complete the video that lots of folks are asking me to publish.  Soooooo here it is.  Hopefully it doesn’t seem too janky since it’s bits and pieces.  Would love your feedback!!

What SwimRun Gear Do I Need?

So you’ve been eyeballing swimrun.  You know you want to get into this crazy sport, but you have no idea what gear to get or why.  Heck, you may have even signed up fgor a race and NOW you’re trying to figure it out.  In this two-part video, I’ll go over swimrun gear beginning with wetsuits.  Yes, there IS a difference, so check out the video to find out.

What is SwimRun

I’ve gotten a ton of questions asking, “What is this crazy sport you’ve been doing lately?!?!” Well, it’s easier to show you a few video clips to help explain. One thing is for sure, if you like adventure, a challenge, and have the desire for something tough, then you’ll probably be hooked after giving one of these a try.
