I just wanted to mention a nice article (blog) that Pam Leblanc, who writes for the Austin American Statesman, posted this morning on her “Fit City Blog“. I met with Pam last Friday at Austin Java, one my my favorite little hangouts, as Derick had mentioned that we should ‘meet’. He spoke with her a few weeks back and he learned that Pam is a swimmer. I think that in Derick’s eyes, anyone who swims by choice more than 3x/week and has done so all of their life has something bizarre in common and therefore are ‘linked’ in some way. Well, come to find out Pam and I had more in common than just swimming (mountains, skiing, inability to sit still…) and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know her a bit. I felt as though we could have sat there and talked for hours.
Thanks Pam for the little write up. And imagine this, she was so ‘accurate’ in what she wrote! Not always the case, so it is much appreciated!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Muhnday!


Well I got a new sponsor, a sunglasses sponsor. Spyder Optics, they are mostly still in Asia but they are slowly making their way to the US market. You have probably heard of them, affiliated with snowboarding, skiing, BMX biking, etc…now triathlon-ing! I wore their glasses on Saturday in Oklahoma to race and they were awesome. I will put up some pics once I have them from my dad, I used the Lithium to race in (see pic on left)…nice and small frame, fancy lookin’ red iridiscent lenses and a very comfortable nose-bridge so that they did not come close to fogging up. Definitely one of the most comfortable pair of sunglasses I have ever raced in! Another nice pair for wearing around, running, etc is the Magma. Looking forward to working with them and helping them become a big name in the triathlon world! Check them out.
