The home stretch! Just a quick update regarding the Whole30, as It’s had it’s moments both good and bad over the past few weeks. I’m realizing though, those bad moments are directly related to the bad habits and cravings I’ve grown accustom to over many years of “no brakes eating”. For so many of us, eating has more to do with our social and emotional environments, than our physical need […]

“You can’t sign up for a marathon, run 24 miles and say you ran a marathon” What is the Whole30? The Whole30 is a “short term nutrition reset”  not a diet. I’m not a fan of diets as they usually encourage people set unobtainable perimeters with unrealistic goals that focus very little on a healthy lifestyle. Every body is different and therefore tolerates food different. Whole 30 is an elimination […]

“There’s no secret to better performance, just a better way”   It’s the week before the big race and you have a million things going through your mind. You’re assessing the training you’ve done up to this point and questioning whether or not one more day of intensity will help. You’re going over and over in your mind, race day nutrition, feed zone logistics, bike functionality, tire choice etc. You’re […]

“Peanut butter and chocolate blend perfectly in this tasty bar. Packed with plant protein, chia, and flax seeds you’ll be ready for wherever adventure takes you.”  –PROBAR If you’re like me, then time is always of the essence. A typical day is usually packed full, regardless of where it falls on the calendar. There are times when I’ve planned a head and know I’ll be riding and for how long, […]

I’ve eaten just about everything under the sun when it comes to energy specific products or junk you can grab from the gas station. Most products, specific to cycling or not, have at one point or another worked really well and provided a great bump in energy during a long race or ride. But most products also, in the attempt to replicate the positive bump, have totally let me down. […]

I’ve never considered myself a runner in any way, even though I spend a considerable amount of my time from early fall through late spring on the roads and trails out my back door. I ran track in Jr. High and High School, but it was more a means to cross train for cycling. I don’t always track or Strava my running, mainly because it’s a more of a simplistic […]

CX season is well underway and as always, it’s been a lot of fun for both me and the family. The kids love watching the race because the get to see dad zoom past much more frequently than any mountain bike race. Layla loves to hit up the Kiddy Cross race, just before they send off the A group racers and even though she knows how to ride a pedal […]

In less than two weeks, nearly everyone racing the Crusher will be questioning or confirming a much anticipated decision. What is the perfect steed for such a race? CX, MTB, Road? Other questions that factor in may possibly include: How will the race be played out? What is the terrain like? And the most important of all: Will I get crushed? I intend to answer those questions, based on my […]

Well, tomorrow begins one of those events I’m not entirely ready for. I don’t claim to be much of a runner but it is something I find my self doing from time to time. Mainly from Fall-Spring. It’s great “off season” training and easier to do when the weather is unfavorable. Plus, the time commitment isn’t nearly as bad as cycling in the cold. Like most mountain bike riders, I […]

From the time I began my warmup, about 45min before the start of the race, until I crossed the finish line, I consumed three bottles, two gels and three blocks. Quick re-cap on today’s race: Started great. Went into the first singletrack in fifth, just behind Alex and Bryson. Soon after, I noticed my front tire a bit on the soft side. I nursed it for as long as possible […]

Some of you are well aware of my terrible sleep habits that have been perfected over the past few years. Thinking about it, it’s probably been a good five years or more to dial in the art of staying up way too late only to argue with the alarm clock every morning. It’s become an intelligent battle between myself, the amount of accountability I wish to take on if I […]
