8/21/2018 – Thirty-Three Weeks Post Total Gastrectomy

Finished my 4th triathlon of the season and achieved another personal best. I shaved another 20 seconds off and finished in 1:06:23. The distance was 600y swim, 12m bike, 3m run.  I ended up getting third for the race and second overall for the series. I’m pretty happy with the races this year as my goal was to beat my times from last year when I had a stomach and apparently stomach cancer. Goal achieved.

Now – next step – IRONMAN 70.3 in Wilmington North Carolina October 13th


This is really exciting, but also a bit concerning.  Since getting rid of my stomach, I can’t train as often as I used to because my muscles get sore and I don’t want to “overdo it”. My goal is to beat my last years’ time of 5:37:20. I would love to get sub 5:30:00. More details as we get closer.


I’ll keep everyone posted with my journey.
