Why Fall Is Great for Cyclists

Well, another great summer is behind us. The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder as fall inches its way across the country. While your days of boating, sunbathing, and relaxing on the beach may be numbered, we’re actually entering into the best time of the year for cycling. Let me explain…

The Scenery

Bicycles can take you to some pretty amazing places all year round, but the views are always amplified in the fall. I ride thousands of miles each year around the same training loops in Reno-Tahoe, but it’s like riding in an entirely new world once fall hits.

The Roads

I’ll be the first one to admit how great a long ride in the summer sun is. But with that summer sun comes more traffic on the roads than any other time of the year. As fall moves in, traffic drastically settles down on most scenic, back roads.

The New Gluten Free Fig Bar

The thing that I love most about fig bars is how simple they are. As a professional athlete as well as a recent nutrition graduate from the University of Nevada Reno, I have a first hand appreciation for simplicity when it comes to what I eat. This is because whole, natural, and real food is simple, and it's also the best source of fuel for your body.

Unfortunately, even the simplest of foods become rather complex when a gluten free version is created. This is because most companies try to simply remove...


National Running Day – Tips for Beginners

At the office we have tons of active employees who participate in activities ranging from CrossFit to mountain biking to paddle boarding to softball to soccer and on and on.

A Dream Come True

Ever since I can remember, Japan has always been a place that I wanted to snowboard. Every year,  I would watch snowboard/ski videos and the POW segments that they showed always blew my mind. It looked like the most fun ever and the lightest snow imaginable. Recently, my dream came true and I went to Niseko, Japan with my brother and our longtime friend Sam. Below are a few highlight photos from the trip that I with captions so you can understand what is going on. =)

One man’s journey to finding the right marathon fuel

When I chose the San Francisco Marathon as a way to celebrate a milestone birthday, I knew my work was cut out for me.  This would be my first marathon and I had limited time to train.  Once committed to the endeavor, I set priorities to make the most of the time I did have for preparation.  New shoes, run schedule and cross train workouts seemed to be the easy part.  A big area that friends whom are experienced marathoners kept discussing was nutrition.  What was I going...
