Hawaii is Hot like the Amazon


So I did my first road race in Hawaii the Lanikai Bike Path 8k. And let me tell you my results are pitiful. I have a hard time running in this oppressive heat. But alas I am determined to gain speed and eliminate the chub rub.
Here check out my sad race results http://www.mprrc.com/r08lanikai.html

Mudders and Grunters 08

I forgot that I was supposed to post these pics over a week ago. They are form my favorite race to run: Mudders and Grunters! There is a lot of prep work involved...and a ton of post run maintenance to be done...as you can see in the pictures below of poor Amazon Hill:

Dress in layers and bring a ton of extras


Duct tape your shoes on. It's a must!

Post Race Clea-up:

Un-tape your shoes, if you're lucky enough to still have both on.


You might consider throwing out the socks.


Caked on mud is not a real problem...just never wear your good shoes.

The reason for this mess? (Sorry that it's sideways...it's still fun though!)

Amazon Revival



I know you're busy preparing for Amazon Babies, but I was just checkin' to see if there were any Mudders & Grunters pics. My training has taken a downfall (as usual). My Jorge Posada thighs aren't enough to motivate me to hit the track. Arggggg....what to do. I don't want you Amazon Baby to kick my arse.

Time to get Amazon!

I think it's time to get back on the Amazon trail! I bought some motivating new gear....athletic skorts! I love that I'm not the only one wearing skorts these days. And I can even run in them now. The black one is nice enough to wear to work and then go running after! Awesome!

Gearing up, getting ready

Still posting mainly on Tri like you get paid, but I'm planning and scheming and scheduling gym sessions so I can post all about my strength training plus whatever other workouts are going to lead me to Amazon Strength!

Now to find Amazon Hil...

Where are the Amazons?

I'm still around, but just not posting here because I'm not feeling very Amazon-like, and I know Amazon Hil has been working her tail off doing her Reading Teacher thang.

I hope to be back next week once I survive Christmas! Maybe I'll see whomever then!

Restarting the Amazon Within

I think I'm finally going to kick myself into gear again. I have an appointment with my mom to go to the gym to lift weights. We haven't done in about 3 months and it's about high time we get back on that horse and ride.

So tonight, I'm packing my gym bag complete with brand spankin' new weight lifting gloves so I don't develop painful, peeling calluses this time around.

Muscles...here I come!
