Pics from Mexico Rounds 1 & 2


The reason my ITU Continental Cup race in Ixtapa was turned into a duathlon (3k run/40k bike/10k run) this past weekend...MONSTER waves!


The past couple of weeks, I've been dealing with an unwelcome visitor in my training - foot problems stemming from plantar fascitis. Unfortunately, I was forced to pull out of last weekend's race because of heel pain. This is an annoying road block in an otherwise smooth season (health-wise) but rest assured I am all over rehabbing my foot back to 100% even as I type...


Here's a pic of the AP (Amanda Pack) coming out of the water after completing the 1.5K swim in Monterrey, Mexico at last month's World Cup.


Bike dismount!


Breathtaking art and architecture surrounded the town of Monterrey, Mexico, especially the race venue of Fundidora Park.

Hungry?Bored? Both?

If you're bored and want to read some more of my writing,be sure to check out the LA Distance Club website at http://www.ladistanceclub.com. Furthermore, if you live in the LA area and are looking for a coach experienced in running/running group, check these guys out!

Or, if you're hungry, be sure to visit Power Bar's website and get a free sample of the new Power Bar Gel Blasts energy chews. They come in both raspberry and strawberry banana (yum!) and are a great choice for a pre or mid-workout snack due to their 2:1 glucose to fructose blend. Like the saying goes, the best things in life are free :)
