John is to humble to brag in his race report about his result... So I - Carla - will to that for him. John came off an Overall third place, Age group win at Fireweed 100 in Alaska. A notoriously, cold and rainy long distance bike race in Alaska. He said - if I quote hi...

It has been a while since the race, and it is time to post this blog that I have written up a while ago. I just never got around to post it. While absolutely nothing has changed in my life since racing as a pro this year, being listed as a pro has a few perks like free...

 I had this sweet encounter today in the forest while on a frosty and long trail run. I almost stepped on something that looked like a black stone, but it moved! I realized it was a little black mouse. I thought she might be frozen to the ground, like the dead rabbit I...

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah!

The last few weeks have been incredibly busy and a tad overwhelming, therefore I am glad to have some downtime over the holidays - despite a short stop at work today. I did promise myself to decompress and let go. I realized that fatigue...

A few days before my 40st birthday, I received my elite racing license! My coach texted me and said I should sign up for epic races. Not sure what exactly he meant with that, but when the sign up opened for Norseman I gave it a try. After all I have never been to Norwa...

In an hour I will be turning 40. 4-0. Wow.

I am excited for 2017. Last week my coach Chris and I put together my race schedule. Well, for the first time, he picked my races, which makes the challenge even more exciting. Looks like a super though year as most races will...

Ironman Arizona used to be my season finale, so I was very excited when I short of notice decided to fly to Phoenix to surprise my 2 athletes racing. Having good friends always helps, and I suddenly had cheap standby tickets for Alaska Airlines and a travel buddy. Than...

Before the race I knew that this race is going to hurt, because every Ironman hurt to some extend and with my Achilles injury it would likely hurt more than it has in any of the workouts. I gingerly ran up Palani and took a right onto Kuakini Highway, quickly assessing...

The start of the bike in the chute is usually pretty chaotic with people swerving around like crazy, especially those who do flying mounts and try to close their shoes before the first hill up Palani.

I saw that the pros don’t get into their shoes until the flat stretc...

The cannon blasted and there is always this split-second where your brain asks: Is this it? Is this the start to the race? Yup, it was and I went off strong and found open water for quite some time. I went out stronger than I expected without my heart rate really spiki...
