Gratuitous coaching shot

Okay, okay, so it's not as exciting as racing. But, "hooray," anyway. ;-)

Movin' on up!

Well, it's official. I'm an assistant coach for the Spring 2008 tri team!

I had initially been torn between deciding whether to coach or to race this season. I gave it some thought, and concluded that I need to take advantage of the opportunity to coach this team while the option is open to me!

It's going to be a big job. The spring team usually has around 100 participants, and we train them to participate in one (in some cases both) of two of triathlon's marquee events: the Wildflower Triathlon Festival at Lake San Antonio and King's Trail in Maui.

I'm so excited!

Two things, in brief re-establish my blog presence.

1) I had the good fortune of spending last weekend at a tri clinic with Dave Scott. He added volumes to what I learned earlier this year at USAT in Colorado Springs. More to come.

2) I have a new favorite LBS (that's local bike shop). Trek Bikes (formerly ST Bikes) in South San Jose. Excellent customer service, knowledgable staff, and one kickass Tuesday night spin class...for free! More to come.

Now, off to the dentist to finish the major overhaul. :-)
