My Transition from Fighting

Kelvin Fight

Today I am a highly competitive triathlete, slowly trying to make it up in the triathlon world. I swim, bike, and run a total of about 15 hours per week. But I haven't always been the competitive triathlete that I am today. I haven't always been racing against time trying to beat a PR or earn a podium spot in my age group. Before I discovered the world of triathlon, I was competing in hand-to-hand combat in the kickboxing ring.


The Mental Side of Injury: Staying Positive When You’re “Down and Out”

It happens. Injuries can sneak up on us, even when we think we are taking every precaution to avoid them. Luckily, most injuries require that we take some time off to heal, which can range from a week to a month or so, which to the A-type athlete may seem like an eternity, but if adhered to, can mean you’re back in the game before the season winds down to a close.


Just Keep Running

I arrived at Lake San Antonio at 2am on Friday morning and was surprised to be greeted by a worker at the front gate that early in the morning. I told him that I really appreciated him being out there to help athletes enter the park in the middle of the night.

Cyle, Dan & Dave at WildflowerThis was my first experience with Wildflower, and it did not disappoint on any level! Friends tried to get me to race last year, but I chickened out, even when told “you have to experience Wildflower, it’s so much more than a race!” I held back. Well this year I figured, 30th Anniversary, promise of fun, promise of an easy race … oh wait, promise of a really hard race…how could I go wrong?


Gem on the Central Coast: Scott Tinley's Adventures

When I was in High School I started venturing with my friends to obscure and secluded surfing spots up and down the coast from our home break in Seal Beach. Ultimately it led to the Central Coast where we found quality uncrowded waves. This past weekend when I went to Scott Tinleys Adventures Tri at Lake Lopez in San Luis Obispo County it reminded me of those discovery days.
