Banana Death is named after a dessert at a Colorado Springs restaurant, but it is fitting for me since I eat a lot of bananas while I train for triathlons and other endurance events. This is a main place for me to talk about my training, but you'll certainly see other thoughts and experiences as well!

Back to oxygen and some cool winnings!
Funny, that going to 6000ft elevation would be back in the oxygen, but after a week in 9000+ and training, it feels good to be back in the relative low-land!
So Tim and I were in Keystone (near Dillon), CO for the 2009 Porsche Parade. We had a fabulous time enjoying the scenery. The weather cooperated 95% of the time and I got in some really good training (hills, anyone?).
We'll probably exchange it for a trip in 2010 since we have a lot going on this year already and we'd like to make more of a vacation. Guess I better brush up on my German!
Now we're back and have to adjust to getting back in the normal routine and I have to get back to work, though it was nice that our shutdown was the same week as parade. But as usual, there is some more training to do...
