Motivation Reset – Old House

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!!

50 in 48

Dan came up with this wild idea of how to get in a bunch of mileage in one weekend.  I was suckered into it…  50 miles in 48 hours…

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.

SwimRunNC Recap, XTERRA Myrtle Beach Update and Offseason

Quick ÖtillÖ Update

Ok. So quick race update for you. We had a great race. The water was choppy with 4 foot swells at points. There were serious winds that made it tough to warm up, even with running. As we moved south, each swim got progressively colder with the start of the race being 54 degrees.


About halfway through the race, we were in 9th place and picking off teams, but ended up finishing 35th after some issues.  We missed our planned time of under 10 hours, but I still wouldn’t trade the experience for anything in the world. We shared laughs and misery, fun sections and tough as nails sections, easy swims and swims I have no idea how we survived.

Thanks to everyone who watched online. I thought of you every time they stuck a camera on us. Thanks to Alba for sticking through me and all the training. Thanks to GU Energy for keeping me fueled and Inov-8 for keeping me in kicks, Timex for keeping me on time. Thanks to Alan Alan Tyson and Candace Myer at Architect Sports for keeping me moving. Full race report on the way. #guforit #inov8 #weswimrun #otillo15 #timefactoryteam

Stocking Stuffers for Athletes

Have a loved-one that is a triathlete or biker? Still scrambling for some stocking stuffer ideas? To the untrained eye, these may seem a bit cheesy, but trust me, if you want to get them something that they’ll actually need and use, then think about these. Not only are they practical and show that you’ve put some thought into their love of sport, but it’ll add a few snickers on Christmas morning. You can find most of these at Continue reading
