Living Strong

Last night I had the honor of addressing a roomful of cancer survivors at our local LIVESTRONG YMCA.  I have been a member of this Y for about 20 years and a board member for another 6 or so. Given that I am also a leukemia survivor, I am always excited to meet, greet, and [...]

Gatorade, Coaching, and TriRock News

A few new things have shaken out this week. For starters, my Team in Training coaching buddy, Todd Wiley who has had the Eastern Pennsylvania triathlon team since 1999 and who I have been partnering with since my diagnosis in 2006 is stepping down from the head coaching helm.
