I love being outside and active. I've personally competed in everything from a 5k run to an Ironman triathlon. I've dabbled in mountain bike racing and hope to race my road bike a bit more these next few years, and give the sport of cyclocross a try as well.
My passion (and my job!) is to help others do the same.
Learn more about my coaching here: NEO Endurance Sports & Fitness.
During the warmer months (April-September) I lead a Friday evening no-drop ride from Cafe Velo. I also coach a group swim Monday evenings at the Gleneagle Golf Club pool.
I hope to swim, bike, and/or run with you soon!

This morning I woke up, checked the weather, and started in on my preparations to get downtown to participate in the St. Patrick's Day 5k. I've run this race since 2008 (except in 2012 when I ran the LA marathon). Even though I'm not really running yet, it's my favorite 5k so I didn't want to miss it. The two main reasons I love this race are:
1) So many people participate and get in the spirit of "green," regardless of speed.
2) It's a flat (for here) course that takes place…Continue

Some people run away when they hear the term 'lactate threshold,' but you don't have to! Even the recreational endurance athlete should understand the concept so that they can plan their training more effectively. And while the best way to know what your LT is to get tested with a blood lactate test, understanding the concept and the approximate effort levels associated can help you get faster.
I'm going to explain LT in a way that I hope everyone will be able to understand.…Continue
