Before a dream is realized, the Soul of the World tests everything that was learned along the way. It does this not because it is evil, but so that we can, in addition to realizing our dreams, master the lessons we’ve learned as we’ve moved toward that dream. That’s the point at which most people give up. It’s the point …

Lifetime Fitness Tempe

I made the decision to travel from Las Vegas to Tempe during a conversation with Coach Paulo during the women’s final of the Las Vegas Super Sprint. While Gwen Jorgensen ran away with the race, I turned and told Paulo, “I think I should just go back to San Diego and train this weekend. I can’t race again on Sunday. …

Las Vegas Super Sprint

Paulo doing his thing during the on-course warm up Marc Lees, the Las Vegas Super Sprint Race Director, first told me about this race back in April. He said, “Hey, this is an opportunity to race on the strip in Las Vegas. We’re building a pool in a parking lot and putting the race on television. You’re not going to …

London Grand Final

Joe Maloy Uncategorized

Last weekend I competed in the World Triathlon Seres Grand Final in London, UK. When I set my schedule for the 2013 season, September 15th this was one of the circled dates. Being there was a great accomplishment, but I wasn’t in the race to be a participant. I was in London to compete–ready to see how I stacked up …

In the time since I’ve last posted to this blog (which admittedly was far too long ago), I’ve traveled over 10,000 miles and raced 4 times in 3 different countries.

Edmonton World Cup

This past weekend my travels took me to America’s northern brother. Now I certainly love America and most things American, but I want to take this opportunity to thank Canada for getting a couple of things right: 1) Tim Hortons– I still will give a point to Dunkin’ Donuts for having better coffee, but the honey flavored timbits at Tim …

  After spending Monday-Wednesday in Detroit, my schedule left me in a bit of a “grey zone.” I had already moved my stuff from San Diego, and I knew I wanted to race in Dallas on June 1st. The question, then, was what I should do in the meantime. After a gracious invitation from Brandon and Amy Marsh I booked …

Focusing on the Details

Part 1: Testing at Eastern Michigan University This past November, Coach Paulo Sousa and I made a decision to work with renowned running specialist Dr. Stephen McGregor. I was not running fast enough to be competitive on the international level, so we decided to collaborate with the Eastern Michigan University guru. His philosophy towards running improvements can be summed up …

Black Bear Triathlon

Joe Maloy Uncategorized

Last weekend’s Black Bear Triathlon provided a great opportunity to get back to my roots and support the Mid-Atlantic triathlon community. While my ambitions as a triathlete necessitate a nomadic lifestyle, I still like to think of myself as a hometown-kind of guy. No amount of travel or experience can replace the feelings of being surrounded by family and friends. …
