New Orleans 70.3 Race Recap – 2014

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Haley
redbullrelay2 Why race a half Ironman exactly two weeks after an Ironman? 1. I’m always up for a little experimentation: 2. In small doses, I really like the city of New Orleans: Pretty sure this was a parade of auditors and giant puppets on Canal Street. 3. I was the defending champ! I should post this picture weekly just to make myself smile!!! I knew racing New Orleans was risky this year, but it was a risk I was more than happy to take. I had fully convinced myself Ironman Los Cabos was just a big training day and my legs were more than ready to tear through the Crescent City. For the first hour and a half of the race, I was RIGHT! The swim and first 20 miles of the bike were a BLAST. First out of the South Shore Harbor Marina! Woo hoo! I was riding up the front with Anna Cleaver and LOVING it. I felt like I was really racing and it was awesome. Shortly after the 20 mile mark Anna took the lead. And that’s when it happened: BIKE MELTDOWNNNNNNN!!!!   I’m no stranger to...

Eyes Forward, Mind Clear

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Admin
I once heard the saying, ‘Comparison is the thief of Joy’ (Theodore Roosevelt). It struck me at a time that was only too appropriate. We live in a world driven by success, by technology that is constantly emphasizing ‘more’…more followers, more attention; bigger and better. You can always go beyond; you can always progress. What you’ve done is good, but you can exceed that. While there is nothing wrong with self-improvement, and I am a huge proponent of always pushing our limits, there comes a point whereby we need to step away and get back to the basics; doing our best, at the moment, on the day; ultimately striving simply for happiness and self-fulfillment over ‘more’. Comparison is the thief of Joy. When I heard this, I was comparing myself to my own past standards; points in my career whereby I’ve been at my best, having achieved small feats I’d never thought possible. So here I sit, having been through a few hurdles the past year that have proven both physically and mentally...

Montana World Championships

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
GrizBike1 This past weekend marked a return to my roots in triathlon racing, as I boarded a plane and flew north to do battle on the storied grounds of the Grizzly Triathlon, in Missoula, Montana. As it were, these very same grounds were a serious point of contention, since course changes through the years had left Todd Struckman’s “course record” (more appropriately a race record) intact since 2001.  With the addition of the treacherous “s” curves behind Eastgate Shopping Center on the bike, and more importantly, “The Hill,” which climbs the initial portion of the Smokejumpers Trail on the run, the course had become significantly slower and the record remained just out of reach. My last two efforts left me knocking on the door, coming up just 28 seconds, and then a mere 7 seconds shy, but I temporarily retreated from future battles in 2010 having stockpiled 5 straight titles to match such legends as Calamity Seeley and David “Blastoff” Berkhoff.  With triathlon as a job, I sought out new...

"Back on the horse"

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Luke Bell)
Due to the incident during Ironman Western Australia late last year during the bike portion where an altercation with a media motorbike resulted in knee surgery early in the year. It is now nice to be bouncing back all be it later in the Australian summer than hoped, (missing Ironman Melbourne - home event) and gearing up for Ironman Australia in Port Macquarie.Although the preparation has not been 100% due to rehab, I can say that I have been able to do as much training as possible that my body would allow me. That means I am heading into Ironman Australia (as defending champion) in the best position I can be under the circumstances, or cards dealt.I am very much looking forward to getting back on the start line, feeling those nerves pre race and just "letting go" once the gun goes off.We train to race and race because we love it.BestLuke :)

Oceanside to Galveston...What a Difference a Week Makes!

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
I'm sitting on a plane again so I figured it would be a good time to write my race report from Galveston or Ironman Texas 70.3. I wrote a report for Oceanside 70.3 but in typical Jessica fashion I never seemed to get around to publishing it! Rather than bore you I'll give you a brief synopsis: I sucked. Well, in my defense I did have mechanical. My wheel rubbed my brake the entire time. I got off the bike twice to fix it, the wheel would spin no problem, only to get back on and hear that dreaded sound of carbon rubbing (and you know exactly that cringe worthy sound). But beyond that, I was completely flat for the race. The swim was off, the bike my legs just felt like bricks, and the first loop of the run I was clipping off a great pace, but once the gravity of how far I was behind I just shut it down. My mind got the best of me, I felt sorry for myself, my ego was bruised...it definitely was not my finest nor proudest moment. photo courtesy slowtwitch.com Coach Kevin and I...

Swim Clinics and a Race with No Finish Line – Where I’m Headed Next!

Tuesday 22 Apr 2014 Haley
Screen Shot 2014-04-21 at 5.37.22 PM I was SO freaking INSPIRED by the Boston Marathon yesterday! From Meb’s big win, Shalane’s gutsy race from the front, Rita Jeptoo’s incredible 2:18 (!!!), Team Hoyt’s last Boston, and my own Dynamo coach, teammates’, and friends’ AMAZING performances, there were lots of happy moments yesterday that made me so proud to call myself an endurance sports athlete! This weekend I’m looking forward to meeting a whole new community of multisport athletes in North Carolina at the Enfinity Health Open Water Swim Clinic! I’ll be helping my University of Georgia teammate Andrea, her super-swimmer husband Tim, and the Enfinity Health crew put on an Open Water Swim Clinic at a GORGEOUS lake near Winston Salem. It should be a great time, and you can check out the official flyer with details HERE. NEXT weekend I get to do a different kind of race. The Wings for Life World Run is a GLOBAL race with NO FINISH LINE! Yes, you read that right! Runners just...

Ironman Puerto Rico 70.3… Outside the race!

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Docamandastevens
Pork right off the hog! Outside the Race: 1st I have to say a huge THANK YOU to our wonderful host Isis Casalduc-2002 Miss Puerto Rico and Miss Puerto Rico Universe 2002. With her as our guide, we had the opportunity to visit parts of the island we normally would have never ventured out to see. Below is a list of must do’s once you visit the island of Puerto Rico!   Pork right off the Hog: Restaurant:  Angelito’s Place On day 2 Isis took us to one of her favorite local delicacies.  This place was amazing! The hog is prepared by roasting over an open fire and then the butcher with a machete cut off chunks of pork that was weighed and served fresh! Amanda actually was allowed to handle the machete!!! This is a must visit as this was one of the best meals we had during our stay!!!!   Pork right off the hog! Pork Chop Chop!   Coffee at Caficultura (located on the run course): Restaurant: Caficultura  Isis knew that I was an addict coffee drinker, so she suggested one of her favorite coffee...

Pre Season

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Amelia Pearson)
Embarking on a fitness campaign is never easy. But now that winter is over it is time to get fit ready for summer. Our first guests for Tri4theAlps arrive on 1 June so I really want to be in good shape for when they do! So building the base is all about consistent sessions, slowly and steadily increasing the duration and getting the job done. I've been working predominately on aerobic conditioning with some strength work thrown in too and I'm starting to feel ok. I've been concentrating on good form and technique too. The stunning views around Morzine have been making the hard breathing and sore muscles all that bit easier to handle. Another blessing that has inspired me to get out and about has been rejoining the GIANT family. A beautiful new Giant Propel and Giant Lust mean I can choose between road cycling and trail riding. I'm new to mountain bike riding and I am absolutely loving it so far. Riding the river trails have become my 'easy' rides and force me to get out of my comfort...

Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Docamandastevens
*pre ride Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico What a FUN Adventure this was! I was lucky enough to be joined in Puerto Rico by husband-extraordinaire, Randy, and a wonderful host, Isis. We were both spoiled by all things Puerto Rican…good food (restaurants and home-cooked by Isis!), beaches, rainforests, and a spectacular race-course. The minute I stepped on the island, I fell in love! While we were waiting for Randy’s flight to arrive, Isis took me to check out the race-course. Although, we kept getting caught in torrential downpours and came back to the car soaking wet several times…with each part of the course, I couldn’t help but think, ‘This is going to be FUN!” The days between 70.3 Brasilia and San Juan, were spent trying to get recovered and also doing a few workouts to keep the body awake and ready to fire on all cylinders come race day. Unfortunately, I picked up a stomach bug in Brazil, and for most of the days between races, I was trying to just keep food in. As Sunday drew near, I had to press...

2nd Place New Orleans 70.3

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
IMG_1257 I’m back from the bayou and have good news to report! After 3 trips to New Orleans to race the Ironman Oschner 70.3, I’ve finally landed a podium 2nd, just one minute out of first, and behind 70.3 World Champion, Andy Potts. I have been putting this race on the schedule nearly every year, making the trip down to see family friends, and to race alongside my dad, and it’s one of my favorites. The deep south of Louisiana is truly another universe, unlike anything else in the world. After the disappointment of Oceanside, I was hungry to get out and prove that my racing and fitness have gone up a level since last year. My approach this season has been to knock out some consistent racing early and get good points for Kona, culminating with my attempt at a title defense in Coeur d’Alene. So far, things are on target with only a couple races left, so hopefully I will have the entire back half of my season to train and prepare for Hawai’i. After spending a...

Lesson’s Learnt! A little experiment!

Saturday 19 Apr 2014 Admin
I always knew it was an ambitious early season schedule Guy and I had in place but it excited me! The idea of it, the challenge of it, why not?? I can back up Half Ironman’s pretty well, lets see how backing up Ironman’s go! Although I was mentally ready and excited for Challenge Taiwan, I should have realised something was up when I actually fell asleep at 8pm the night before the race and slept the entire night through until the alarm went off! Normally, that never happens! I am so excited/nervous and full of excess energy that I normally only sleep a few hours. I was relaxed as we headed to transition and everything was organised ready to go! I got in a good swim warm up and felt good in the water. I was a little concerned about over heating in my wetsuit but was just going to have to see what happens! I ended up having a solid swim and was really happy with it. I was able to hang on to some feet the first few km’s but unfortunately fell off the second lap and then...

#64 tomorrow!

Friday 18 Apr 2014 Hillarybiscay
sweet potatoes #64 is here! I arrived in Taitung just in time for some carbo loading on sweet potatoes… And to remind myself a little bit of the course here at Challenge Taiwan . . . The swim is in, like, world’s largest swimming pool! Scenes from the run course . . . Lots of it is along this old railway trail with lots of funky turnstile-type situations which are a bit tricky to negotiate when tired . . . As promised, here are a couple places you might be able to follow some of the action tomorrow, beginning at 3PM PST (Friday). Challenge Taiwan’s twitter My Facebook Page Also, for more on why tomorrow is such a big day, read here on witsup.com, and here on Triathlete.com. And in case you missed it, here are some top tips on mental toughness from me and the other pros racing here tomorrow.

Daring to make the “right” choice isn’t always easy !!!

Friday 18 Apr 2014 Michelle
luc I have made a decision, which without a doubt will have an impact on this year – both good and bad. But why? I am in progress – 2013 was my best year – both personally and sports-wise! I got named as elite athlete of the year, which I am incredibly proud of. I have myself to thank – but also my support base, consisting of a very understanding family and a coach, who has believed in me all the way through – even when nobody else did. So now the questions is, how you can live up to a year like that?! I of course want more! The risk of disappointing oneself is huge, cause how can 2014 become just as good as 2013?!! There will be a high focus on me now – the expectations from the surroundings are huge. The eyes are on me – What are my plans? – In which direction am I heading towards? – Can I live up to my own statements? I have made a decision. Every day – every week – every year – has to offer new challenges. I have...

At turde træffe de ’rigtige’ valg er ikke altid nemt !!!

Friday 18 Apr 2014 Michelle
luc Jeg har truffet et valg, som uden tvivl vil have indflydelse på dette år – både på godt og ondt. Men hvorfor? Jeg er i fremgang -2013 var mit bedste år – både personligt og sportsligt! Jeg blev bl.a. udnævnt til årets elite atlet, hvilket jeg er utrolig stolt over. Jeg kan takke mig selv, men også mit bagland, bestående af en meget forstående familie og en træner, der har troet på mig hele vejen, også når andre ikke gjorde det. Spørgsmålet er så, hvordan man igen lever op til sådan et år! Jeg vil jo selvfølgelig have mere! Risikoen for at skuffe sig selv er stor, for hvordan bliver 2014 mindst lige så god som 2013!!! Der vil være stor fokus på mig nu – forventningerne fra omverdenen er også store. Øjnene er rettet mod mig – Hvad er mine planer? – I hvilken retning bevæger jeg mig? – Kan jeg mon leve op til mine egne ” udmeldinger” ? Jeg har taget en beslutning. Hver dag –hver uge –hvert år – skal byde på nye udfordringer. Jeg har de seneste 2 år lært rigtig meget om...

Summer Season: On Racing in Roth in 2014

Friday 18 Apr 2014 Dirk
I am excited to announce that I will be back in Roth this summer to defend my title!  I was able to fulfill my childhood dream of winning this European classic race last year, and I am really glad to be able to make this race a priority in my calendar again this year.  Competing in Roth is an experience that cannot be compared to any other.  There are a lot of emotions that come up when I think about pushing up that crowd-filled Solarer Berg, or entering the epic finish area, completely surrounded by spectators in the triathlon stadium.  This year is bound to be even more impressive, as the folks at Challenge are pulling out all of the stops for the race’s 30th birthday. Right now, I have been spending some time back home in Luxembourg, in order to get myself back in working order after the race in Melbourne.  Although I had initially planned to do some cross country skiing at the beginning of the month,  plans have change slightly.  Winning in Australia took it’s toll on...

Oh, No!-ceanside

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
Not a lot to say on this “race,” as it lasted only about 1 hour before I suffered a puncture around mile 14 of the bike and did not finish. I had a very strong swim and came out right where I needed to be, but after trying to make a move with super cyclist Starky around mile 10, I came out of a sharp right turn in Camp Pendleton and heard the dreaded hiss for the second race in a row.  I felt good and was sitting around 9th/10th, but with a world class field like that one, it was essentially over when I flatted. To add insult to injury, I flatted again at mile 38 after continuing on with intent to finish.   Still a joy to return to the Southern California landscape, see good friends and connect with sponsors. I was able to salvage things a little by surfing with friends and having a great dinner with some of the Zoot crew. I will be back again to have a crack at the classic California race!

CANNES INTERNATIONAL TRIATHLON! AWESOME RACE!!!

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
The Cannes International Triathlon was AWESOME!!! I loved every moment of being in beautiful Cannes, France!!The Cote D' Azur also know as the French Riviera!! With the glamour of all the boutique shops and five star hotels, walking the Promenade de la Croisette, nibbling on croissants while sitting at a street cafe sipping an espresso, to the breathtaking Mediterranean coastal bike ride I was able to experience, and staying in the Majestic Hotel!!Loving the coffeeMajestic Hotel RoomThe Cannes International Tri was an experience of a lifetime- racing one of the most incredibly put on organized races I have encountered with a beautiful 2 loop swim in the Mediterranean waters, a demanding hard bike ride with over 4000ft of climbing in 80km and crazy technical descents with tight corners navigating through the Maritime Alps, and a 4 lap run course on the famous Croisette... it definitely is one of the best races I have ever experienced. A strong group of athletes at...

Race Mode

Wednesday 16 Apr 2014 Hillarybiscay
10174855_10152724593673976_2073982666_n A flight between San Francisco and Tokyo means that I finally have time to blog—nothing like being trapped inside the the metal death box for 10 hours! I thought I should check in because race season has snuck up on me and I’ve had people asking where and how to track the upcoming action. I’ve got some fun –and a bit scary—adventures on tap, but first a little recap: I must say it’s been awhile since I’ve felt so out of “race mode” and I have gone longer than this (since Ultraman in early December) without racing before . . .This year I think the difference has been the all-consuming nature of “work” that, while triathlon-related, usually has nothing to do with facilitating my own race prep. Luckily, though, one of these jobs got me out for a friendly intro back into race mode last weekend at the Tempe Town Lake—site of many fond Ironman Arizona memories. I had the opportunity to do a 4K open water race (open water/ wetsuit action is not something we have out in Tucson!) followed by...

70.3 San Juan Champion – AGAIN!

Tuesday 15 Apr 2014 Andrew Starykowicz
CaliBike Yes, we all have highs and lows, what goes up must go down. So when I returned to San Juan, Puerto Rico last week I knew there was only one place to go after winning last year, defend my title and be complacent or lose and nothing is more hateful to this American! I got my biopsies back from my stomach and learned that there is an issue and I am going to need a whole bunch of tests done to figure out what may be causing the illnesses I have experienced over the last few years especially leading into Oceanside 2 weeks ago and Bilbao Triathlon last spring, but we will save all that for May. Yet it has made for some great photography: The problem is that I cannot take the prescribed steriods that “normal” people can take and still race this month at 70.3 San Juan and Wildflower because it takes a month to get cleared for a TUE through USADA. This means HTFU and gut it out. The swim start at San Juan was perfect, I started next to a human missile in the deep water and the rest...

A few words in support of Frank Guinn and Andrew Powell

Tuesday 15 Apr 2014 Haley
frank I didn’t know Frank Guinn. But he knew me Or at least the internet version of me, which I like to think is somewhat similar to the real thing. I didn’t know Frank, but I knew of Frank. His coach had mentioned him, and how excited he was to be coaching a firefighter. Just like me, Frank was from Atlanta, a Dynamo Multisport coached athlete. And just like me, Frank was in New Orleans last weekend, excited to race 70.3 miles through the Crescent City. Frank’s wife Kimberly gave the most amazing pre-race speech. She said the last thing Frank would have wanted was for anyone to shed a tear on his behalf. She encouraged us all to race hard for Frank. She told us about the brotherhood of firefighters, and how she saw that same family dynamic in the triathletes standing on that start line. She told us about her brother Andrew, who from his hospital bed, was already making plans to race again. I didn’t know Frank, but I know Frank’s three little girls have an...

Travel with Valentine Lovato

Monday 14 Apr 2014 Amanda Lovato
Arriba!!! #cabo After Valentine was born, I really wanted to commit myself to writing about how our lives are transforming and how Valentine was changing and growing. Finding the time has been a challenge in itself. I felt inspired and had a few minutes…I wanted to share a few thoughts from the past couple of months. Michael and I have been busy growing our different businesses. Michael had a job in Cabo this past March announcing-YOU ARE AN IRONMAN and translating Spanish to English and English to Spanish. For those of you who did not know, ML is fluent in Spanish. He has lived and has studied in Mexico and Spain. In his previous life, he was a High School Spanish teacher. Right now we are taking bets to see if Valentine first words will be in English or Spanish. Michael only speaks Spanish to Valentine. (Her sitter is a native Spanish Speaker who only speaks Spanish to her too). A week in Mexico sounds divine especially if you want to escape snowy and cold Colorado in March. As organized and as...

Gearing up for XTERRA New Zealand

Friday 11 Apr 2014 Conrad
Conrad Stoltz XTERRA New Zealand Newsflash: New Zealand is stunningly beautiful! After a few long flights from CPT, JHB, Sydney to Auckland, we stayed right on the water (above) for a few days with Princess Hotstuff’s friends. During high tide I swam in the estuary and channel amoungst the boats. Water was surprisingly warm. Unpacking some cool new toys. The Specialized Compak AirTool travel pump for tyre and suspension is not only long overdue for traveling, but also beautifully engineered from all aluminium. LOOK S-track pedals & since we’re in the “worlds best fly fishing country” travel fly rod. Brand new bike: I chose the Specialized Sworks “Epic” over the “Epic World Cup” model. This bike has a bit more suspension, the handling a bit more stable, and if I need to, I can put a double chainring on there. First things first, I pre rode this legendary course a number of times. The Billy T single track is incredibly fun, and I wish the whole 25km bike course...

Friday 25 Apr 2014 [Triathlon News]

I once heard the saying, ‘Comparison is the thief of Joy’ (Theodore Roosevelt). It struck me at a time that was only too appropriate. We live in a world driven by success, by technology that is constantly emphasizing ‘more’…more followers, more attention; bigger and better. You can always go beyond; you can always progress. What you’ve done is good, but you can exceed that. While there is nothing wrong with self-improvement, and I am a huge proponent of always pushing our limits, there comes a p more

Second Act: Luke McKenzie

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Adam Elder
Photo: Rob HammerLuke McKenzie spent his first 19 years in triathlon working his way to the top. Then last year, facing a stalled career and the end of his marriage, he started completely over, did things his way and had the professional breakthrough he sought for nearly two decades. All he had to do was suffer like he never had before. The crowd is roaring on the streets of Kona as Luke McKenzie strides calmly out of transition into town. He holds his shoulders high, with great purpose, into the first steps of the marathon in the 2013 Ironman World Championship. He just pedaled a furious 112 miles through the Hawaiian lava fields, leaving nearly all the race favorites 10 to 15 minutes behind. Most of them are having a bad day at the office, mired in the humidity and having been left for dead early on by the top cyclists. Yet he feels fresh. Several minutes later, Luke overtakes super-cyclist Andrew Starykowicz as the two are still shaking the four-hour bike ride from their legs, and...

New Orleans 70.3 Race Recap – 2014

Thursday 24 Apr 2014 Haley
redbullrelay2 Why race a half Ironman exactly two weeks after an Ironman? 1. I’m always up for a little experimentation: 2. In small doses, I really like the city of New Orleans: Pretty sure this was a parade of auditors and giant puppets on Canal Street. 3. I was the defending champ! I should post this picture weekly just to make myself smile!!! I knew racing New Orleans was risky this year, but it was a risk I was more than happy to take. I had fully convinced myself Ironman Los Cabos was just a big training day and my legs were more than ready to tear through the Crescent City. For the first hour and a half of the race, I was RIGHT! The swim and first 20 miles of the bike were a BLAST. First out of the South Shore Harbor Marina! Woo hoo! I was riding up the front with Anna Cleaver and LOVING it. I felt like I was really racing and it was awesome. Shortly after the 20 mile mark Anna took the lead. And that’s when it happened: BIKE MELTDOWNNNNNNN!!!!   I’m no stranger to...

Eyes Forward, Mind Clear

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Admin
I once heard the saying, ‘Comparison is the thief of Joy’ (Theodore Roosevelt). It struck me at a time that was only too appropriate. We live in a world driven by success, by technology that is constantly emphasizing ‘more’…more followers, more attention; bigger and better. You can always go beyond; you can always progress. What you’ve done is good, but you can exceed that. While there is nothing wrong with self-improvement, and I am a huge proponent of always pushing our limits, there comes a point whereby we need to step away and get back to the basics; doing our best, at the moment, on the day; ultimately striving simply for happiness and self-fulfillment over ‘more’. Comparison is the thief of Joy. When I heard this, I was comparing myself to my own past standards; points in my career whereby I’ve been at my best, having achieved small feats I’d never thought possible. So here I sit, having been through a few hurdles the past year that have proven both physically and mentally...

Montana World Championships

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Ben Hoffman
GrizBike1 This past weekend marked a return to my roots in triathlon racing, as I boarded a plane and flew north to do battle on the storied grounds of the Grizzly Triathlon, in Missoula, Montana. As it were, these very same grounds were a serious point of contention, since course changes through the years had left Todd Struckman’s “course record” (more appropriately a race record) intact since 2001.  With the addition of the treacherous “s” curves behind Eastgate Shopping Center on the bike, and more importantly, “The Hill,” which climbs the initial portion of the Smokejumpers Trail on the run, the course had become significantly slower and the record remained just out of reach. My last two efforts left me knocking on the door, coming up just 28 seconds, and then a mere 7 seconds shy, but I temporarily retreated from future battles in 2010 having stockpiled 5 straight titles to match such legends as Calamity Seeley and David “Blastoff” Berkhoff.  With triathlon as a job, I sought out new...

"Back on the horse"

Wednesday 23 Apr 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Luke Bell)
Due to the incident during Ironman Western Australia late last year during the bike portion where an altercation with a media motorbike resulted in knee surgery early in the year. It is now nice to be bouncing back all be it later in the Australian summer than hoped, (missing Ironman Melbourne - home event) and gearing up for Ironman Australia in Port Macquarie.Although the preparation has not been 100% due to rehab, I can say that I have been able to do as much training as possible that my body would allow me. That means I am heading into Ironman Australia (as defending champion) in the best position I can be under the circumstances, or cards dealt.I am very much looking forward to getting back on the start line, feeling those nerves pre race and just "letting go" once the gun goes off.We train to race and race because we love it.BestLuke :)

Oceanside to Galveston...What a Difference a Week Makes!

Monday 21 Apr 2014 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
I'm sitting on a plane again so I figured it would be a good time to write my race report from Galveston or Ironman Texas 70.3. I wrote a report for Oceanside 70.3 but in typical Jessica fashion I never seemed to get around to publishing it! Rather than bore you I'll give you a brief synopsis: I sucked. Well, in my defense I did have mechanical. My wheel rubbed my brake the entire time. I got off the bike twice to fix it, the wheel would spin no problem, only to get back on and hear that dreaded sound of carbon rubbing (and you know exactly that cringe worthy sound). But beyond that, I was completely flat for the race. The swim was off, the bike my legs just felt like bricks, and the first loop of the run I was clipping off a great pace, but once the gravity of how far I was behind I just shut it down. My mind got the best of me, I felt sorry for myself, my ego was bruised...it definitely was not my finest nor proudest moment. photo courtesy slowtwitch.com Coach Kevin and I...
