Hmmm.  3 to 3 in overtime win?  After going 3-3 in pools?  Strange.  Well on to the next one.#epee #epeefencing #sport #athlete #usfencing #fencinglife #training #competition #vetepee #vetfencer #escrime #scherma #fencer #fencingistruth #revenge #combatsport
Rgggg.  3-3 is not what I was hoping for.  Ok.  Onward and upward.

Busy getting things ready to head for #portland  travel days are always seem long.  This time it is less than 3 hrs.  #epee #epeefencing #sport #athlete #usfencing #fencinglife #training #competition #vetepee #vetfencer #escrime #scherma #fencer #fencingistruth
Last practice and packing up gear from the club.  Headed to #Portland for the North American Cup.

Oh the joys of old age and hard training.  The need for multiple braces.

Two broken Allstar epee blades in as many practices=bummed epee fencer.  On the upside, both were a result of very good touches to the arm of my opponents, and they did hold up to 12 months of constant use.  #epeefencing #epee #fencingproblems #vetepee #vetfencers #fencingpractice #fencinglife #allstarfencing
A little Throw Back Thursday(well, about an hour late) to Veteran Pan American Fencing Championships in Aruba where I won my first international medal.  #tbt #fencing #epeefencing #epee #usfencing #vetfencers #vetepee #athlete #fitness #goals
Just a few photos from competing this week at Summer Nationals in Salt Lake City.  Not quite the result I wanted but I fenced much better than the last NAC.  I also walked away with some good ideas on what I need to work on with my fencing in advance of next season. #usfencing #usafencing #vetepee #vetfencers #fencing #fencingnationals #epee #epeefencing #fencingislife
Team Pink Linea fencing bag from The Fencing Post packed tight and ready to head to US Fencing Summer Nationals in Salt Lake City.

Well, after last week's debacle at the NAC, it was back to the grind of practice and analysis of what went wrong.  Today I am competing in a local SD Div event, to help me get back in the right mindset.  So far, so good. #fencing #fencingpractice #fencinglife #eppe #epeefencing #vetepee #headspace #mentalgame #physicalchess #babysteps #getyourgroveback #focus #gameface #gametime #sandiegodivision #usafencing
And it is travel time.  Headed east to Baltimore for the @usfencing North American Cup.  I've trained my butt off.  I've prepared the best way I know how.  Now, it is time to relax and execute.  It is game time.  #fencing #travel #competion #athlete #fencer #vetfencer #epee #epeefencing #vetepee #competetionprep
And thus concludes another night of hard fencing.  With the North American Cup just four days away, I will have one more training session with my coach tomorrow before flying east on Thurs.  The past month has been some of the most intense training I have done for a NAC.  I feel prepared and ready.  It is the calm before the storm, and I am ready for battle.  Thank you to all my temmates @sandiegofencingcenter , @thefencingpost and @nofearfencing for all the extra hours of practice, and especially my family for being so suportive of my insane drive to live my dream.  #dreams #competition #intensity #athlete #livingthedream #goingforgold #drive #calmbeforethestorm #readyforbattle #fencing #epeefencing #training #fencinggoals #usfencing #usafencing #vetfencers #vetepee #teammates

Some last minute pre-NAC practice with my No Fear Fencing teammate @emmygracecabral Emily 'the Brawler ' Cabral and Coach Alexander @sandiegofencingcenter #sandiegofencingcenter #fencingpractice #fencing #competion #usafencing #nac #baltimore #vetepee #epee #athelete #fitfam #fitness #goingforgold #fencinggoals #thefencingpost
Really good competitive practice session leading into the last couple of days of run up to the Baltimore North American Cup (NAC). Thanks again to my @nofearfencing and @sandiegofencingcenter teammates for the awesome prep-work, and @thefencingpost for all their help and the awesome @allstar.fencing uniform.  #goingforgold #nac #athlete #fencinggoals #fencing #fencingpractice #fencinglife #epee #vetfencers #vetepee
One week until the Veteran Men's Epee North American Cup Circuit event in Baltimore Md.  I am starting to get really excited.  Time to cash in on all the training and prep work.  Big shout out to my teammates at No Fear Fencing, @sandiegofencingcenter , @thefencingpost for their help and support.  Hope to make all of you proud. #fencinggoals #fencing #training #athlete #fencers #addidasfencing #epee #vetfencers #vetepee #goingforgold #sandiegofencingcenter #thefencingpost
Ok, first off, not a great picture in the gym,  my phone battery was dying.  Secondly, I am not usually one to get all giddy about a very minor thing, yet here I am.  Today, about 5 weeks after starting a regular lifting routine with @adam_james_yq I was able to score a new PR.  Just a few weeks ago i was barely able to squat 165lbs on a 2 rep set.  Today, I broke the 200lbs mark.  I was able to hit 205 for 4 reps. Much thanks to Adam for all the spots, works of encouragement, and pointers. So stoked to see improvement.  I can't wait to see how much this will help my fencing at the North American Cup in Baltimore next month.

One of the few times I actually felt like a 'cool' photo was taken of me while fencing.  Most of the time, i feel lile fencing photos of me make me look really silly.  #fencing #epee #vetepee #athelete #training #blackandwhitephoto #@sandiegofencingcenter
Just a short break between #fencing bouts to watch my #teammates .  #epee #practice #athlete #fitness #vetepee #competition #training
Not going to be running a #marathon anytime soon, but needed a bit of 30 minute #cardio for the day.  Planning to get it every day going forward.  #training #fencing #goals #vetepee #epee

Well, certainly wasn't the #result I was hoping for yesterday.  The upside is that I have a good idea on where I am lacking right now, and there is time to improve before the #northamericancup in March. #dedication #perseverance #practice #fencing #vetepee
My #adidas Barricade 7s have been the best #fencing shoes I have found in almost 20 years of fencing, and the Adidas soccer socks have been totally awesome.  #athelete #vetepee
