An Army Story

Q: How do you ruin the training effect of a long run? A: Stay on your feet after the run. 0900 hours. Long run complete. Feet up. Hank Snow, Dwight Yokam and Del Reeves on the radio. OK… let’s write a blog post about the time my colleagues almost blew up a section of Arizona […]

Russian Spies?

More comments. The content of these comments ranges from mattresses to pornography: neither of which interest me. Some, however, are cryptic enough for me to think someone is passing secret codes. I’ve already posted about this before and I want to share the latest with you. If you owned a restaurant, what kind of food […]

Blog Comments and Numerology

Lately the TriRiot blog site has been getting quite a few comments. Unfortunately, most seem to be written by bots.

Mike Reilly to Announce IMNC

Mike Reilly at IMNC If you don’t know Mike Reilly, you’ve probably never heard the phrase, “You are an Ironman.”  Mike is the most well known of the IRONMAN announcers and he coined that phrase.  For all I know, it may be under copyright protection!  Many triathletes dream of the day they hear those words […]

First, The Bad News Sorry Malibu, California.  You just don’t have the beauty of a sunrise over the ocean. Now, The Good News But I just can’t wait to get to Malibu to see the sun setting behind the ocean.

Snake Oil or Cramp Cure?

Snake Oil and Muscle Cramps There are so many products on the market for us to ease our pains and satisfy our cravings.  Everyone with any sales experience knows that you can sell almost anything to anyone if you can tap into their human psyche and emotions.

The Eight Days of Hanukkah – Day 7

Two More Days I have almost exhausted my supply of Hanukkah comments… (I think I just heard a sigh of relief from everyone following this blog).
