This blog is about my personal experiences with training and racing triathlons, ironmans, marathons, ultramarathons, bike rides and other shorter races. You will find race reports with course descriptions as well as training reports.

I started running in 2000 and cycling in 2001. Within a couple of years I did my first marathon and then triathlon. Since then, I’ve enjoyed training for half and full distance triathlons, marathons, ultramarathons and century bike rides. I live in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois.
