Inspiration from Kona Triathletes

Do you need inspiration? An 82 year-old man swam 2.1 miles, biked 114, and ran a marathon to complete the World Championship Ironman race in Kona. You can run a 5K. You can run a 10K. You can do a triathlon. You just need to believe you can. I shot a ton of video while […]

Yep. I cry at the finish line.

Have you ever cried at a finish line? From my own Chicago Urbanathlon to spectating the Boston Marathon, I’m not one to be shy of tearing up. In Hawaii, the emotions were brought to an entirely new level. All week, as social ambassadors for Timex, we interviewed the different amateur and professional athletes competing. Many […]

Is It Too Late To Be a Professional Athlete?

So here begins a few of the Kona recaps. What I found to be the coolest thing about the Ironman race series is that many of the pros had corporate lives before they began competing. If you still dream about becoming an athlete, this sport proves you’re never too old! Throughout my series of posts, […]

Trying to Eat Clean in Kona

A 2012 Kona Ironman recap post will be coming tomorrow! I did however want to share some of my healthy travel activities from the week. I have probably the most important video shoot in Los Angeles next week so while I was here, unfortunately I was not able to partake in the fruity cocktails. It […]

I’ve been posting on Instragram, Facebook and Twitter so if you want to follow, you know where to find me.  […]

Meeting an Ironman Celebrity, Chrissie Wellington

This morning, we headed to Lava Java for some breakfast. Since I went running early, this was my second breakfast. I opted for a big bowl of fresh tropical fruit. The coffee was delicious. They had packets of “Stevia in the Raw” which I used to hate, but it tasted quite good in the coffee […]

Aloha from Kona!

After 11 hours of flying, I arrived safely in Kona. I wish I could have taken pictures while landing on the big island! The airport is located on an old lava field, looking like the surface of the moon. On the flight, I brought along my own snacks of course. I picked up this bar […]

Vega One Nutritional Shake

At Expo East, I made sure to grab a few samples from one of my favorite companies, Vega. I tried one of the nutritional shakes the other day and was surprised at how good it really was. I tried to All-In-One Nutritional Shake in French Vanilla. The shake had a green tint to it which […]
