A husband, father and grandfather above everything else. I also claim to be a triathlete and a runner having finished one of my most ambitious goals to date, the Louisville Ironman 2011, so my free time has been spent swimming, biking, running, eating, hurting and then repeating.

I have completed four marathons, one Ironman, five Ironman 70.3's, one Ironman 69.1 (New Orleans's Swim was canceled) , numerous half marathons and countless short distance triathlons.  I was crazy enough to finish Goofy's Run and Half Challenge in 2010, and in 2013 I came back to do it again.  In 2014 I hear Disney is doing the "Dopey".  A 5k, 10k, Half Marathon and Full Marathon, in four day.  I think I will.

I'm a social media junkie.  Love to facebook and tweet. I tell my story through this blog.

A couch potato until the age of 52.  So, if my story inspires just one person to get moving, to get fit and feel better, then my mission in life is complete.


  1. Hi Mauricio

    I came a cross your blog a couple of months ago and have been checking it out ever since. Good to hear you're making progress and getting up those climbs with ease! You deserve it after doing 50.5 miles on a turbo trainer!!

    My husband and I are developing a triathlon training website and I thought you might like it: www.intelligent-triathlon-training.com

    We have just added a great training planner tool to the site. It is simple to use and can help you to meet your objectives and get the most out of your training.

    If you like it please add a link to us on your blog.

    Anyway, good luck with the training!

    Best wishes,

  4. Hello Mauricio,

    I was looking at your Blog and thought I would send a note about Topricin since we were just featured in the “Spring Workout Survival guide”.

    Topricin has always been a part of the running/cycling world and has attended several marathons, including the NY & Boston marathons. Our products are safe and effective for everything from sprains and strains to just normal aches and pains.

    We are also currently having a Kindle Contest which is a great way for people to try Topricin if they have never used it before. With this contest your followers can receive samples of Topricin, while also getting entered into a Kindle Contest! If you would consider posting the contest on your blog and facebook page would be great. I would love to send you some product if you have never tried Topricin before.

    We were just awarded a patent for the treatment of Neuropathy and prior to that had received a patent for the treatment of Fibromyalgia.
