  1. Hey Brandon. Wow. Very well done. I looked over the stats and you’re right, you did get the best swim time, but you *also* got the second best running time of any non-team finisher. I think your overall cardio fitness is showing itself in your running pace. So now you need to work on your transition times and biking — and you could start winning events like this.

    I went to the pool for the first time in a couple of years and did a 300-meter comfortably in about 5:40. So that’s not too bad.

    Thanks for the podcast with all of the biking advice. I think that part of a tri is still WAY beyond me at this point considering that all of my spare money is going toward my fall tuition and my car is about to fall apart. My parents’ house is on gravel roads, so I grew up on dirt bikes and never owned a bike with gears. So all things considered, I’m a year or two away from bike racing. For now, I may start with the exercise bike at the gym to train my muscles and then look into buying a bike next year.

    Anyway, keep kicking ass. I’m a little jealous of your fitness curve, but I’m even more proud of your progress.

  2. Wow! Thank you so much for your valuable and appreciated advice on marathon training. I will definately follow your advice to listen to my body and not push it too much. Im just so excited to toe that line at Richmond — Im completely consumed and tend to overthink things. I wish you all the best in your training and will continue to be a loyal listener! If you have any more news specific to Richmond keep me posted! Thanks again!

  3. Hey Brandon, congrats on your great results on the Tri. You rocked it! I’m looking forward to following your progress towards your first Ironman next year. I think the Richmond marathon will be a really good first test for you, mentally and physically.

    Thanks again for doing the podcast. It gives me something to look forward to when I’m traveling throughout the southeast week in and week out. If your opera work ever brings you south, please let me know.

    I’m finally back training with my goal race being the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach on March 22, 2009. I have three Half’s planned before then. Spinxrun Fest (Oct), Kiawah (Dec) and Tybee Island (Feb).


  4. Brandon,

    thanks for the shout out on your recent podcast. I appreciate being mentioned. Great show and maybe I’ll see you in Richmond in November.
