Team Foley/Egg https://action.lung.org/site/TR/Climb/ALASE_Southeast?team_id=152243&pg=team&fr_id=18596 • Today I started all over. Training. Again. And the voice in my head as i hugged and puffed up the stairs said... “If all you are is weak, weak is easy.” That’s the statement I say to clients all the time. Faulty movement pattern? Injury? Lack of skill? Lack of motivation? Sheer idiocy (see the humor, please)? That stuff can be tough. But if all you are is WE AK, that’s easy to fix. Train. Practice. Fuel. Recover. Train and practice some more. In stair-climbing terms, I’m weak, out of practice. • I climb in memory of my friend, John Foley. If he were still alive, he’d be climbing with us. Because if a friend had a cause, he made it his cause, too. Because he could. And I climb in honor of Michelle Egg Smith. We’ve been climbing in celebration of John for ten years. Two years ago she climbed while being treated for Stage IV lung cancer. Last year she climbed...happily, because she could. We continue to climb because we can. Because Michelle is doing it and can do it. Because we honor John. Because we’ve raised some money for The American Lung Association. Because there is a cause to fight for. If you’re weak, come out and build some strength. Have some fun. Make a difference. You don’t have to be fast. But maybe you’ll get faster... • #stairclimb #stairclimbing #stairclimbtampa #lungaction #ala #americanlungassociation #lungstampabaySo happy to attend the grand opening of Justin Rockett’s new yoga + massage studio!

Well, the day has come and gone, and the 2010 Nautica NYC Triathlon is officially in the books. In many ways it’s not one I’d like to have on record. Let me begin this by saying that the NYC Triathlon is a GREAT race. It’s interesting, unlike some of the “flat and fast” courses we so often encounter. The roads are hilly and bumpy with hairpin turns. The run boasts locals cheering along every step of the mostly shaded course. The swim is cool, refreshing, and wicked fast.
Unless you have a panic attack. Yup, that would be me. We were told in the prerace meeting that if you just put your arms out and floated that it should take 23 minutes (well, one guy did that last year and that’s what happened, anyway). We were told that the water was chilly enough to take your breath away and that we should “burp” our wetsuits as soon as we got in. We were warned of quick current, so to slide into the in-water start and quickly grab the rope so as not to float away. We were warned NOT to touch the bottom as you approached the exit ramp; the silt did not need to be disturbed.
That’s what we were told, which made me quickly walk away from the race expo. I was glad to be staying in mid-tow, away from the throngs of athletes. I was glad to be able to walk for miles, visit good restaurants, and live on a non-triathlon schedule. It’s NYC, and I was there to have an enjoyable time.
What I actually SAW and FELT on race morning was different. Very calm. I watched people get in the water and quickly rush downstream. I saw the “panic stricken” swim towards the sea wall and miss the benefit of the current completely. I saw small waves of folks with lots of room happily floating by. I couldn’t wait.
So I gently slid in the water and grabbed the rope. No adrenaline rush. The 75-ish degree water feld lovely, but I “burped” anyway. I dunked my head and still didn’t get a head freeze. I tasted the water and didn’t….die. I chatted. positioned myself in mid-stream and propped my feet up on the dock so I could get a good push. The horn went off, and I swam. And I was enjoying myself. Yeah, I really love to race and I could hardly wait to conquer this course!
Well, I swam for about 150 yards. Then the panic set in. If you know me you are aware that I’ve had my “issues” with swims. But that is all behind me. I haven’t pulled a big panic in 5 years or more. I have gotten moments of “uncomfortableness” down to 15 seconds or so. But not on this day. It hit big. My arms move quickly, but my legs feel like lead…so they sink. I can’t get horizontal in the water. I pulled immediately to the right (sans current). I breathed so loudly that people on the sea wall spoke to me. I clung to a kayak until my breath regulated, let go, only to have it happen again. I couldn’t see the end, but I figured I was going to make it.
Lessons from the Aqua-Jog down the Hudson:
Panic runs on no man’s schedule. It comes when it wants.
It’s here! The weekend that triathletes from all over the world have been waiting for…St. Anthony’s Triathlon!! I remember St. A’s as being the big gun, the season opener. Pasty white northerners would journey to St. Petersburg to dive into … Continue reading
WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED was that I went on a training ride with five friends yesterday. WHAT I HEARD WAS that the wind was so bad it was nearly impossible to ride. That is was hard to stay motivated. That one … Continue reading
