Last I heard he had be DQ'd for drinking a beer on the course at Kona. If I remember correctly it was for having glass on the course, not for drinking the beer.

Once, I was fast. But I got over it.

I miss his blog.

Swim. Overbike. Walk.

From a post I did last summer:

Chuckle had some mental health issues if I remember correctly and checked out. About 2 years ago or so a friends of mine was doing a thru hike on the AT and ran into him there. Chuckie had a trail blog going for a bit but it wasn't kept very up to date.

Thanks, I heard he was on the trail but never anything about him coming off or finishing. It would have been 2013.

That's all I know as well. Been a couple of years since he went silent.

Chuckie is the most interesting person I know. One of the best coaches anywhere. He needs to come back.

He's a bit of a mystery. Intelligent enough to be affected by existential depression, but not to have seen it coming and obtained a degree/work outside of triathlon?

He started a blog about his Appalachian trail journey.

Apparently the answer to your question is that no one has a clue. I do miss his witty, entertaining training blogs.

I continue to wait patiently for his triumphant return

He's been off the grid for about 4-5 years now.

I am a big Chuckie V fan. I remember when he won Ironman Canada in 1999, I thought that this race was his "triumphant return". Unfortunately, less than 2 months later it was followed by his Kona DQ. I don't think that he's ever been the same?!?!

His coaching blog was GREAT! I wish that it was archieved somewhere to still review.

I hate to hear of his mental health issues. My father suffered from mental health issues for the last 40 years of his life. The general public has no idea how a brilliant dynamic person can turn reclusive and withdraw from society. Unfortunately, I saw it happen to my father right in front of my eyes. I do not know the specifics of Chuckie V's condition, but I wish him the best and hope that he is doing well.

Chuckie V used to live in my mom's basement when he first made the transition for road racing to Tri. When I moved to a different house after grad school I used to store his junk at my house. I had a spare Zipp V bike, lots of wheels, a few old trophys and one of those rreally cool tensioned Campy disc wheels sitting in the basement.

The last time he stopped by was to get his stuff in the late 90's. Haven't seen him since, but I still laugh when I think about all the goofy stuff he used to do. A total character and just plain fun to be around. I wish him all the best and he can come live in my basement whenever he wants.

I've got a feeling that there are some industry old timers that have some idea of his whereabouts but out of respect for his privacy they don't say anything.
