Thank you for visiting! I am Russell Aaron, an avid triathlete, tech guy, and outdoors man. I live in Reno, Nevada where I work at EMPLOYERS insurance. I moved from Vegas after high school and have never looked back, picking up two degrees (University of Nevada), an amazing dog, and a beautiful wife and Lego-loving stepson in the process! I am also a member of the Epix Performance Apparel Squad and an ambassador for Hüma gel.

For my Vitamin D fix, I compete in running races, triathlons, and ultra-endurance events (IRONMAN x 5). Often times you can find me preparing for my next race, gaming on Xbox (mrlavalamp) or PC, chilling at the movies, or hanging out with my friends. I also squeeze time in for playing trumpet when my schedule allows. I’m very interested in learning, exploration, cooking, and eating!

I have succeeded if I learn something new every day, and the older I get, the more fascinated I am to learn that I don’t know very much! This blog started out as a grad school project, and all these years later I am still cranking ’em out ;-)

Be sure to subscribe to my blog and connect with me on these other platforms! The more the merrier, and you will get a different taste depending on which platform you choose to engage with.


  1. Hey Dan, thanks for the comment and your wonderful blog on the power of blogs over resumes! Looking forward to reading more of your content in the future.

  2. Hi! I’m Sue, and I’m from SlimKicker, a fitness/diet app and website. I saw your blog a few days ago and it captured my interest!

    I’m contacting you b/c we’re about to release a fitness tracker (similar to FitBit) early next year, and are looking for bloggers who would be interested in getting 1 for free to review when it is out (negative or positive).

    Would you be interested in doing this? You can email me at: sue (at) slimkicker (com) with ‘Review’ in the email heading if you are.

    Just to let you know, our website SlimKicker basically turns your fitness/diet goals into a fun level-up game. The tracker will work in conjunction the website, and allow people to track calories burned and number of steps they walk automatically. The more they exercise, the more points they rack up! That’s basically how it will work.

    Anyway, hope to hear back either way…

    – Sue

    Hello Russell,

    Just a quick email to ask if you would be interested in a ‘mutual’ following on twitter that will benefit you. (Ex: I am providing ‘Anytime’ #RT’s for all #Ironman #Triathletes #Cyclists #UltraRunners #Marathoners #FitnessProfessionals who follow me on Twitter and have something important they want mentioned for support…Over 42K folks at your access. ‘5x #Ironman #Champion @HeatherGollnick follows & is one of our biggest supporters’…). I am currently following you now and am awaiting your follow-back…

    All the very best for the rest of 2013 & an upcoming Merry Christmas & Happy New Year Russell. Look forward to hearing from you…

    (PS. Russell, should you follow back, I’ll be giving you a ‘Stand Alone’ #FollowFriday #Shoutout including your ‘website’ this week Friday…)
