I've had the great fortune to be able to travel all over the country competing in various running, cycling and triathlon races. Over the last few years, I have documented some of those events, with photos and race reports. I have done countless endurance events over my years competing, and have only documented a very few of the most challenging. For some reason, I tend to only write about the most challenging and difficult of my events. Maybe my way of dealing with the challenge and suffering that I subjected myself to.

Other events, where I do well, and do not have problems, I tend to gloss over, and simply let them go, without bothering to document or recount. Though every one is an adventure in itself and though sometimes things are difficult, I absolutly love the challenge and the quest to see how far and how fast I can go.

Some of those race reports and photos are in the links on the left. I hope you enjoy them, and maybe learn a few things.

If you have any questions about any of these events or about ultra endurance events, feel free to send me an e-mail, I'll be happy to talk to you. I love helping others in the sport, and love talking about the various races all over the country.
