HTC ended up being awesome. I didn’t end up needing a suppository, but we still ran fast and laughed our arses off the whole 197 miles. Thanks to all my teammates for having great attitudes and I’m booking some suites on the coast monday for next year.

Here is our Hood to Coast Flickr Set (if you have some more – send ‘em to me or upload to Flickr and let me know.
With every athlete this side of the Atlantic being accused of performance enhancing supplements, I am considering joining the fray. I read a book about an Irish cyclist who rode in the Tour in the late 80’s early 90s. He use caffeine suppositories and said they worked quite well.
I am thinking 1 might be helpful for my middle of the nite run for Hood To Coast. A massive caffiene kick – and hey, at least I am not using steroids?
Where can I pick these up?

I’m ready for HTC – now, how fast can I go?
Check out this piece done on me in the Stoughton Journal. My abs aren’t quite as ripped at the moment (this picture is a few months old)- but I am happy to see them displayed in all their glory.

Men’s Health told me they are good for me. I bought a bag at Trader Joe’s this past weekend and munch on a few during the day.
Also, it’s good to shock your muscles at the gym…don’t do the exact same exercises day after day. Try new machines….do cardio on something else. (I think that was a Men’s Health tip too)
