My friend Duffy, a former Marquette University cross country runner, has a stride to behold. Running behind him you can see his heels kick up high, seemingly hitting his quads. He runs powerfully, with a slight forward lean. His turnover... Continue reading

My long-time running coach, Jim Spivey Why would you need a coach for running or triathlon? I can answer that question! I have been personally coached for 37 years, for a number of years even by multiple coaches. And, these... Continue reading

For my fellow triathletes in the Annapolis Tri Crabs, most every week in recent months I have been sharing "the best of" my weekly swim, bike and run workouts. My intent is to give back to the club, be a... Continue reading
