KONA Ironman! Well… Part Of It At Least   1 comment

Just returned from Hawaii and we were on the Big Island! I am doing an Ironman in Louisville, KY in October and I wanted to possibly do some training on the famed Kona Ironman course. I did it……. with my family’s help. Thank you mom and dad! I did the 2.4M ocean swim on one day and the 112 bike on another. The currents were a bit stronger than I anticipated but I felt good and the bike had some serious winds and heat. I am pretty sure the Big Island is my favorite island now. So many different ecosystems.

Pyramid Peak Was Pretty Blustery   Leave a comment

Just returned from a day hike up to Pyramid Peak in the Desolation Wilderness of CA. My God the summit was so windy. 75 MPH winds. We had to stop just short of the summit due to winds and time constraints. Absolute blast though. It was an arduous 6 hr round trip hike with plenty of post holing. We only saw 3 people the whole time.

Ralston Peak Summit!   Leave a comment

We summit-ed Ralston Peak in the Lake Tahoe area (Desolation Wilderness) and it was spectacular! The peak is over 9,000 feet and it was ultra clear up there. We saw the whole Tahoe basin. It took us 6 hours total. We hiked part of way and snowshoed near the top. We had 25 pound packs on most of day. Here are the stats:

Took to the seas with a friend of mine. We sailed along the coast past Venice, Santa Monica, and Pacific Palisades. The weather was great!
