Countdown to races!
Swim – Use the HIPS – Lava Magazine
Properly rotating your pelvis is arguably the biomechanics factor most critical to success. Stabilizing and rotating through the core and spine creates initial momentum and puts the upper extremities in a position of mechanical advantage, allowing, for greater overall force output and efficiency form the movement. Swimming is not much different from baseball and golf in this way: in a ll of these sports, pelvic rotation initiates spinal rotation, followed by upper extremity action.

Save the Children
I need 200 of my friends to donate at least $20 dollars to the foundation on my behalf. I need to meet my quota. So, don’t go out drinking this weekend and put up $20 dollars for the children.
This time around I need your help. As you all are aware we train for a cause and work hard at it. This time around I am doing it for the Children… literally.
So, I’m racing in this year’s IRONMAN in Woodlands, TX! By participating in this event, you already know that I am a serious athlete, because i have done 18 of them.
If you help me reach my fundraising goal, together we will help Save the Children provide life-saving, life-nurturing programs to children all over the world, including right here in the United States!
I need your help to reach my fundraising goal!
$100 can help stock a library for schools in the U.S.
$150 can help provide 3 goats to families in need.
$200 can help provide ready-to-use food to help save malnourished children.
$300 can help provide healthcare essentials to a school clinic serving hundreds of children in 35 schools.
Please support my participation in the 2015 Ironman Texas benefiting save the Children. I have made a commitment to raise at least $5,000, and I need your help to get there.
