Hi Everyone,

Sorry it has been a while since I last updated my website. A lot has been happening and there has always been something else that needed to be done, sleeping included.

The biggest news is that I am now part of Team Abu Dhabi Triathlon (http://www.teamabudhabitriathlon.com/en.html) This is a group of elite triathletes sponsored by the Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority, as well as the other sponsors you see at the bottom of my homepage. The founding member of the team is former Hawaii Ironman World Champion, Faris Al Sultan, and it was a great oppurtunity for me to train with him, and the other members of the team in Al Ain, UAE, for two weeks at the start of February.

I got some new bikes, Storck, and they are sweet. I’ll have photos and info on them soon.

I now run in Adidas shoes and am very excited to be in the lightest racing flat on the market, as well as their world record marathon shoe, and the other models of cool adidas shoes. It’s also great to be sponsored by Suunto, since I almost never run without pace/speed, and the foot pod works beautifully.

Just two days ago I finished 2nd at the Australian Long Course Champs to Craig Alexander. I am pretty disappointed in my performance, and know I was in better shape a couple of weeks earlier, but a bad week of preparation cost me a good run split. It was the first race of my early season races though and I am sure I will be better prepared for Abu Dhabi Triathlon on March 13, and then Australia Ironman on March 28.
