Ended last year with full recover from the plantar fasciitis that was nagging me for the last couple of season. This year, I start out healthy so be able to build my base before “prime time” come around. My new find of Sketchers helped with the final recovery process.

This year, I’m only scheduling two A events and may pick up additional event throughout the season. Of course, I will be taking advantage of all the Tri Club of San Diego events (which are included free as part of the membership fee).

I decided not to apply/participate in any “real team” this year. I will continue my athlete ambassador/sponsorship with a select group of products I believe in and have found to improve my athletic performance.

Update: Now apart of the Skechers Ambassador program. Started wearing their shoes mid last year. I have found them to be the most comfortable running shoes I have worn in a long time. I am loving the GOruns at the moment. Great race shoe!

As of early May became part of the MotoActv ambassador program. I got frustrated with my Garmin 310xt and its issues and loving the MotoActive so far.

Gu Energy is still my nutritional choice Gu an Brew....don’t forget their Chomps!

Fluid Recovery is my choice for recovery supplementation.

Work ended up taking a big bite out of my training and race preparation. Have a few physical set backs from blister and foot scrapes that required time off. No All-American or Honorable Mention ranking. This just makes me want to try even harder in 2013 for better results.

Ended the season as an USAT All American-Honorable Mention... very surprised at this.
