About a month ago I got news that I have been chosen to be on team ZOOT. For those of you who are not familiar with ZOOT it is an awesome triathlon brand.  They produce lots of cool triathlon gear for all three sports and also racing gear. In fact my favorite number belt is ZOOT brand and I have had it for years and love it!

Something really exciting about this is that ZOOT makes triathlon specific footwear. I have never tried them but I am looking forward t...

Everyone likes to run in their favorite comfortable gear. Since I live in Portland I need different gear for all different types of temperature but something I always love to run with is a truckers hat. I like truckers hats the most because they protect my face from the sun or the rain but they are also breathable. They also come with many designs so that makes truckers hats even more fun!

At Las Primas we are huge fans of Atlas Cider, we try to always have...

One week after the Portland Marathon I started to do some jogs again. In the past I have taken longer of a break but this time I wanted to start up again to stay in shape and be ready to train for the Mt. Hood 50k.

I have been doing a few distances, 3 miles, 6 miles, 8 miles, and 10 miles. When I do the longer stances my left knee has been giving me a little bit of pain after a few miles. Usually I have problems in my right knee but I think that during the P...

Yesterday I participated in the 2017 Portland Marathon. This was my third marathon ever, second for the year and I feel great with the result. I felt strong throughout the day, couple of times I thought my legs might cramp up a little but nothing some GLUKOS can't resolve. 

My training definitely paid off and I have managed to do a great job with my nutrition. The GLUKOS gels are the best for me easy to swallow, give me zero digestive problems and I feel lik...

Its been a while since I have posted, so my apologies summer had me extra busy between work, surfing, training for the Stump Jump trail run and training for the Portland Marathon.

Last Sunday I had the great opportunity to participate in my first ever trail run called the Stump Jump put on by Rock/Creek a great store in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Not only had I never done a trail run but I had never been to Tennessee and Chattanooga is a beautiful city with gre...

Two weeks ago I completed the Lima, Peru 70.3 Ironman exactly two weeks later I did the Eugene Marathon and it was a push! My body was still recovering from the 70.3 Ironman so I decided to stay with the 4:30 pacer for the whole Marathon. At around mile 19 I started to get a little hungry and had to slow down a little bit but in the end I still came in at 4:42 and I am pretty happy with that especially considering what I had done two weeks prior.

Why would I...

Last Sunday I became an Ironman 70.3 Peru finisher! The trip to Peru and back was long as I only had four days there but overall the experience was great. The organization of the race was fantastic and so was the support of the people on the streets especially for it being the first time Lima had an event of this size.

The swim was a little choppier than I had anticipated but went really well once I was able to get my rhythm going.

Off to the bike. I started...

Yesterday morning was bridge to brews one of my favorite races/runs in the Portland area. I participated in the 8k distance, which is such a fun distance! Also at the end of the run you get tickets for free beer from lists of different booths. This is the Last race before the big day at the Ironman 70.3 Lima which is just under two weeks away! The goal was to do better than last year and I was able to accomplish that.

It was a great morning for a run nice cr...

In a month I will be an Lima 70.3 Ironman finisher! I feel like I have been putting in the training and staying focused on the goal even though there have been some challenges mostly weather related.

I feel like my nutrition is on point and it has been amazing how GLUKOS (www.glukosenergy.com) has kept me powered through the workouts. In general I tend to have a hard time consuming these kinds of nutrition products in general but with GLUKOS the flavors are...
