On finding your way.
My good friend and first triathlon coach, Michelle Weins, asked me to write a short article on how I've changed as an athlete over the last 20 years. Initially, I thought the article would touch on the rise of recording body metrics, use of power meters, or balancing aerobic versus anaerobic intensity. Instead, I found my thoughts going more towards personal experimentation, staying curious, and having the courage to forge your own path. I think you'll like it, and you can find the full article here.

Training thoughts and updates:
I've been helping our crew at Tri Town lay the groundwork for a new triathlon team in the Treasure Valley. Though some of our initial plans and activities will be limited due to the pandemic, I feel long term our team is developing a unique and exciting team format that will help maintain and build the local triathlon community for years to come. Stay posted and I hope by next week we'll have more to share!
Gear that caught my attention:
The popular Wahoo Kickrs are back in stock. The new 5th generation Kickr auto-calibrates (no more spin downs!), and uses rocker-feet to create a more realistic ride feel.
Quote that struck a chord:
"We often avoid taking action because we think 'I need to learn more," but the best way to learn is often by taking action." - James Clear.
If you have a moment to spare:
Local endurance phenom, Erin Green, turned me onto this webinar virtual event with Adelaide Perr at Rediscovered Books on February 23rd. I'm looking forward to learning more about Adelaide's horrifying yet inspiring story. A bit about Adelaide: On October 18th 2014, Adelaide was in a bike crash that would change her life. She went through the driver's side window of a car that pulled in front of her, suffering injuries that almost killed her - and emotional trauma that would continue for years to come. In addition to facing the physical injuries and PTSD, Adelaide worried about how the crash would affect her ability to cope with her bipolar II.
Have a great week!
