TBT- Hardest Swim Workout I’ve Ever Done

admin Uncategorized

I’m two weeks into The Triathlon Squad’s annual altitude training camp in Flagstaff, Arizona. This is our third year coming to Flag, and it brings back memories of sessions–completed both here and in other areas–that have made me a little tougher, a little stronger, or a little more resilient. Here’s a swim workout I did back in Fall, 2011 with …

Keeping You Alive, Mis

admin Uncategorized

Once in a while things happen and everything else suddenly seems unimportant. I’ve tried all week to write something to somehow describe my friend Melissa Galdenzi.  She was the best writer I knew.  She probably would have been able to do it, but my talents fall short.  With a seemingly infinite capacity to succeed at whatever she tried, Missy (later …

admin Uncategorized

Throwing it back to a great weekend I had here with my dad in 2009.  This was my first summer seriously racing triathlon, and Killington, Vermont, sounded like a great place to spend my 4th of July weekend.  Plus, the race offered a free entry to anyone who had proof that they had won a race before!  I had just won …

This week’s Throwback Thursday post comes from Chengdu, China.  I left my temporary training base in Stellenbosch, South Africa, last Saturday, flew through Dubai to Tokyo, overnighted in Tokyo, and then took another flight to Chengdu on Monday evening.  While it was a pretty crazy itinerary, don’t feel too bad for me.  This was the view as our plane skirted …

Part 1 My chemistry teacher at Wildwood Catholic High School, Mr. Watson, introduced our class to balancing chemical equations during my junior year. I was a pretty good student, and most new concepts came easily to me. Balancing those damn equations was not one of them! Sitting at the black marble science tables, I felt like Forrest Gump looking at …

I’m Baaaack!

There’s a certain someone out there who likes to remind me how long it’s been since I’ve updated my blog.  Why have I fallen off?  Simply put, I’ve been distracted. I don’t blame myself for this proclivity toward distraction.  I think it actually runs in my family.  When I’m with my parents, once in a while I’ll notice my dad …

Finding my MoJoe

Joe Maloy Uncategorized

One question I’m often asked is: “Why do you love being a professional triathlete?” Normally I’ll give a rehearsed answer about how I love representing myself, my family, and my country in the races. In some cases I’ll reference how interesting the travel can be if that’s what I think will strike a cord with my audience. Often saying what …

Time

Joe Maloy Uncategorized

It’s funny how time can get away from you. I’ve been meaning to put something on this blog for much too long, but I’m just getting around to it now.  Why?  I was waiting for the perfect moment. Today (December 20) is my birthday.  On this day twenty-eight years ago my parents were living in a little house near Sunset …
