Race Time

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 Andrew Starykowicz
Time to start the midwest tour…Back to back to back. 70.3 Muncie 70.3 Racine Challenge New Albany The only thing that would’ve made it better was if Steelhead was the first weekend of August instead of the 2nd weekend. There are a lot of names on the start list, it will be interesting to shows up! Fighting to win and punish, Andrew Also there are still a few slots left for the NC training camp The post Race Time appeared first on Andrew Starykowicz.

IM Frankfurt / European Championship Race Report (08.07.14)

Tuesday 08 Jul 2014 Corinne
In the week before the race we saw both Raffa and Murray exit from Wimbledon, not that I am comparing myself to Raffa and Murray, but at the time it reminded me that there are no guarantees or certainties in sport and I shouldn't be writing myself in or out of the race beforehand...

Osmo Water Pic Wednesday – Thanks to the Crowd!

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 Haley
Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 7.51.45 PM I love, Love, LOVE getting water pic suggestions from blog readers and I’m super excited to share a few of my favorites! My Dynamo buddy Karl tweeted Popular Mechanics’ list of 10 incredibly cool swimming pools, including this crazy floating pool planned for New York City’s East River (also brought to my attention by Lectie): 2016. NYC. I need to check out this pool!!! And then go eat some New York pizza, of course!! As if lusting over domestic swimming holes isn’t enough, Tim sent me a CRAZY pic of what looks like an underwater waterfall in Mauritius: What?!?!? Where is Mauritius? And what the heck is an underwater waterfall?!?! I desperately needed to know so thank goodness for Google!! Answers: Mauritius is a little island off the coast of Africa And the “underwater waterfall” effect is actually sand falling into an underwater crevasse. Read all about it HERE. Mauritius actually made the Reader’s Choice list of the 35 Clearest Waters to Swim...

Do Professional Runners/Triathletes Matter?

Monday 02 Sep 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
Last week the Competitor Group announced their plan to drop their elite athlete program at all of their races, including the wildly popular Rock n’ Roll run series. They felt that the cost of continuing this program outweighed the benefit of bringing in top level athletes to their races. This news was very disappointing to me on a number of levels.I believe that professionals offer a type of credibility to a race. The pointy end of the field is the focus of media attention and the times that are set by pros often inspire those finishing behind them – a barometer of what the human body is capable of doing.The value of the professional athlete, whether at a running or triathlon event, has always been debatable. There are people who just don’t care what is happening in front of them at any given race while others staunchly follow the frontrunners and look forward to seeing how they perform. But, to those who don’t care about the pros, I hope my discourse will change your mind and help you...

The Fitness Conundrum

Sunday 01 Sep 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
It is a very fine line between ultimate fitness and injury. Whenever an athlete boasts that they are in the best shape of their life, inevitably they get injured shortly thereafter. I call it the fitness conundrum. In the triathlon world, athletes like Emma Snowsill, Lisa Norden, Paula Findlay and Terenzo Bozzone sustained serious injuries immediately after a seriously awesome performance. At the 2008 Olympics, Deena Kastor broke her foot during the marathon. Before every Olympics and World Championships, hordes of athletes pull out due to injury.I am now one of those athletes. This summer, I was arguably in the best running shape of my life. My half marathon times improved immensely, I saw times on the track I never imagined I would see again, I floated through my weekly long runs. I was on fire. And then, bam, just like that, I got injured. The America’s Finest City half marathon two weeks ago was my best race this season. I did not set a PR, but given the course terrain, my overall...

Colorado Half Marathon race report

Monday 06 May 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
Experience plays a huge role when it comes to racing. Take yesterday’s race, the Colorado Half Marathon, for example. Just before Mark dropped off my friend Jimmy and me at the bus that would transport us to the start, I asked Jimmy if he had any toilet paper; you know, just in case. He did not. I supplied him with some tissues and grabbed some for myself. As the bus jostled along to the starting area, I was anxiously anticipating using the facilities. When we finally pulled into the designated area, there was a bank of Porta Potties with hundreds of people lingering around them. For some reason, though, all of the bathrooms were open. The reason, you ask? They forgot to stock them with toilet paper! Jimmy and I did the happy dance and moseyed into the empty bathrooms. If 20 years of racing has taught me anything, it is always bring toilet paper on a run. Just as we emerged from our respective loos, dozens of rolls of toilet paper were delivered and the unhappy lingerers bee lined to...

New Partnership with OSMO Nutrition

Tuesday 08 Jul 2014 Bevan
Having been derailed by stomach and gastrointestinal issues for over 7 months, Bevan Docherty overcomes his sports nutritional challenges with guidance from exercise physiologist and nutrition scientist, Dr. Stacy Sims (Fairfax, CA – July 7th, 2014) – OSMO Nutrition, creators of sports hydration and recovery products specifically optimized for male and female physiology and based on peer-reviewed science and fieldwork with athletes, is pleased to welcome Pro Triathlete, two-time Olympic Medalist and World Champion, Bevan Docherty to their team.

Andy erlebt in Frankfurt keinen perfekten Tag

EuropameisterschaftAndreas Raelert erlebt in Frankfurt keinen perfekten TagRostocker muss die Ironman-Europameisterschaft im Marathon vorzeitig beenden – Hoffnungen bleiben unerfüllt – Großer Respekt für Sieger Sebastian Kienle Frankfurt. Andreas Raelert hat bei der Ironman-Europameisterschaft eine Enttäuschung erlebt. Der Rostocker musste das Rennen beim Laufen vorzeitig beenden. „Ich bin sehr enttäuscht, dass es für mich heute nicht funktioniert hat“, erklärte der Europameister von 2010. Er hatte sich kurzfristig für einen Start beim topbesetzten Rennen in Frankfurt entschieden. „Ich habe mich bereit für dieses Rennen gefühlt“, sagte Andreas Raelert, „aber leider konnte ich nicht das abrufen, was ich für mich persönlich erhofft hatte.“ Nach 25 Kilometern des Marathons musste Andreas Raelert seinen Lauf auf Rang vier liegend beenden.Andy gratuliert ganz herzlich Sebastian Kienle, Frederik van Lierde aus Belgien und Jan Frodeno, die am Frankfurter Römer aufs Treppchen laufen konnten....

Riding in the French Alps

Tuesday 08 Jul 2014 Fraser
2 After racing in Spain at the Zarautz Triathlon I was fortunate enough to be able to join in with Triathlon Performance Solutions  summer training camp. Having been involved in their winter camp at Playatis back in February I was looking forward to meeting some new faces amongst some amazing cycling terrain around Briancon, in the French Alps. Given we were in such historic cycling territory the bulk of the week we had in the area was to be spent riding our bikes. During the 7 days I rode only 5 times becasue I needed a day off after each two day block of Alpine monsters!! We tackled, amongst others such famous climbs as the Cols d’Izoard, Galibier and Agnel – the latter topping out at nearly 2750m and represnting one of the very highest paved roads in Europe. – The picture above shows the height of the snow walls towards the top of that climb. The very top of the climb was in fact the Italian-Franco border. It was only 6C up there and thankfully the camp had the...

Zarautz Triathlon 2014 – 3/80/20k

Tuesday 08 Jul 2014 Fraser
_MG_2721 2nd place – 4:04:58 This picture doesn’t do the gradient justice I am afraid! Zarautz is a fantastic race for many reasons and one of those is the punishing climbs that feautre towards the tail end of the bike ride. I will pack more gears for next year! I have raced quite a lot in Spain and have spent more time than I can remember in the country for training camps over the the years. As such I have heard lots about what is regularly described as ‘the best race in the country’. Usually I am busy racing 70.3 UK over this weekend in June however this year I decided to have a change of scenery and commited to racing in Zarautz, which is on the northern coast of Spain – not far from San Sebastian. It is a beautiful stretch of coastline and a remarkable location for a race. This race is essentially a half ironman event, but with a longer swim. Strictly speaking it is a ‘double olympic’ distance race and as such I felt it played to my strength. I...

Crashing

Thursday 17 Mar 2011 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Well sadly I totaled the beginning of my season by having a pretty bad wreck. 3 weeks ago on Saturday I came down hard. I broke 2 ribs and did some pretty bad deep tissue damage. I won't complain though as I thought at the time I broke my pelvis so it could have been worse, much worse. I am getting better by the day but sitting on the sideline for the first 3 races I had planned for the year sucks rotten eggs.IM NZ had to be canned, as with Abu Dhabi and Puerto Rico 70.3. It of course is no use crying over spilled milk so I have picked myself up and flown everywhere to support the hubby. I have weaseled my way into better seats on silly long haul flights to the best of my ability. I have cheered for my friends in 2 of the gnarliest conditioned races so far this year. (if I was going to miss out at least the races were horrible rain @ IM NZ and scorching hot sun @ Abu Dhabi.)The saddest part of this all was the total destruction of my beautiful Scott Contessa. I had to throw her out...

Morocco

Thursday 24 Jun 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
On our day off post X Challenge we headed to Morocco for the day. It was beautiful and interesting and super full on all at once. After hopping off the super speedy ferry we meet up with Abdul our taxi driver/tour guide for the day. He was a lovely man that live in Tanger his whole life. He spoke 5 languages and knew all there was to know about Morocco. Well the North anyways. He showed us around Tanger and told us the history. Then he drove us to Assilah a beautiful seaside town. I absolutely loved Assilah. We stopped for lunch and I had a fish tanjine. The spice was amazing. After lunch we strolled the streets and took 1000 photos. Here are a few. Overlooking the city of Tanger.The ladies of the alleys of Assilah.Look left look right but dont forget to look up. A colorful roof top garden.Painted doors are every where in here.Out of the old city and into the streets for a market feel.Sitting down for fish tanjine.Another beautiful door.And another.This dude parks cars on the side of...

Triathlon du Lac Machilly

Sunday 06 Jul 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Amelia Pearson)
Our summer season is well underway and so I thought it was about time to do a triathlon. It has been over 3 years since my last triathlon. I entered the Machilly Tri with the sole aim of participating for fun! I really enjoyed it and am inspired to put on the race suit again soon. The event was organised by one of the local triathlon clubs and they did a sensational job. The course was easy to follow and safe. The concept of the race was an individual time trial, with participants starting in 15 second intervals. My only hiccup prior to the race start was not having a number belt when it was announced to be a non wetsuit swim. Never fear - Joe ripped off the elastic band of his undies and there you have it a 'bonds' number belt. Disaster diverted I was on the start line. The swim felt good, I was pleased with the straight line I took from can to can and my pacing was suitable to how much swimming I have been doing (only a little bit), I had a sooth transition and was pleased to be...

2014 XTERRA Victoria

Monday 07 Jul 2014 Melanie@racergirl.com (melanie)
spreading some powerbar love {jcomments on}The XTERRA event in Victoria grows every year.  It started as a little sprint event at Durrance Lake and has been steadily growing and attracting interest from further abroad year after year.  This year there were many racers from out of town and even out of country.  I participated in a pre race training clinic with Brent and Danelle which saw more than 20 keen triathletes pay to go ride with us (the money went to a cancer charity!) and I was amazed at how GREAT everyone could ride!  It was very fun.  It was also my only ride on a mountain bike before the race so I was happy to take some time to learn the lines again.   The Halloween bag of Powerbar wafers is sent around the circle.  Brent is extra stoked to get some :) So this is the main takeaway from this event for me.  I rode ZERO mountain bike miles leading up to this race for a variety of reasons but mostly because I have focused 100% of my attention on training for...

Firecracker 5k GPS adventures

Sunday 06 Jul 2014 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
After my last 5k fiasco, where I employed the "fly and die" method of racing, I figured the goal for my next 5k attempt would be to pace smarter. When I had come home from Williamsburg a few weeks ago, I got a wonderful hand-me-down gift from my future maid of honor, Amy. It was her old Garmin Forerunner 210, still in fantastic (looks new!) condition, and she knew I was trying to focus on running

Ironman Frankfurt

Sunday 06 Jul 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
Today I raced Ironman Frankfurt and came third in 8 hr 58 on a very hot day. The week had been a struggle for me to be honest. Last Sunday I had an amazing day training, then on Monday went for a recovery ride and my right leg was incredibly sore and weak. I had a massage on Tuesday and apparently I was in a bad state, very tight with transferring all around. I didn't do much training during the weak, just tried desperately to release this tension which kept changing, first my attachments at top of leg, quad, shin, butt and then the day before the race it still wasn't right I found the last point of tension was the middle of butt but I couldn't get it right for the race. It was sore in the swim, on the bike and on the run and I can barely walk now but I put together a good performance considering.In my last blog I talked about this race and the need for a separate pro start away from the age group. I contacted various people to put my point of view across that a P4000 race needs to be...

Ironman #66: Ironman Cairns

Sunday 29 Jun 2014 Hillarybiscay
10506731_729782933744677_8510599156899033576_o Better late than never—finally here on the plane to the next event (Ironman Coeur d’Alene for TeamHPB coaching duties!) I have a chance to write up the final leg of my spring 2014 race-fest. I realized at some point on my way home from Australia that the race-fest was actually comprised of 5 long races in 8 weeks: a half ironman, three iron-distance races, and a 100K trail run. You see, in my mind I take them one at a time, so I sort of intentionally don’t do the math on the whole deal while I am in the midst of a stretch of events like this. I did know that my Australia trip included 3 races in 5 weeks (Ironman Australia-North Face 100K-Ironman Cairns), but that was as far as my addition went. And while I was there, I focused on whatever was the next thing in front of me. I think that my body held up as well as I could have hoped, all things considered. With the 100K thrown in between the two ironmans, this kind of combo was something I had never attempted. Disclaimer: I thought this...

"Sun" Diego training in San Diego.

Sunday 06 Jul 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Luke Bell)
Things have been moving in the right direction which is nice after so much time dwelling on knee rehab and getting back on track.It has only been over the past 2-3 weeks where I feel like the body is starting to "get fit" again. I am able to finish sessions feeling strong and wake up the next day ready to go again. Being based in the one spot and able to hit some quality session focussing on training and training alone has also helped no end.With a few fun races in and around the area also to keep things interesting it will be nice to head up to Vineman 70.3 next weekend to see the improvements. I am not expecting an "out of the world" experience but it will be nice to see where things are at against what is always a world class field, before it is back at it in lead up to the North American Ironman Championships in Mont-Tremblant Canada to defend my title from 2013.San Diego International Triathlon

Overcoming obstacles- IM Canada

Friday 04 Sep 2009 Granger Gazette (noreply@blogger.com)
Ironman Canada 2009 was my 33rd Ironman-distance race and my third time to the beautiful town of Penticton. This time I would be sharing the town with my parents which made it even more special. This was their first time to Canada and they were not disappointed- they loved it! I arrived on the thursday and my parents arrived on the friday. I had organised a wonderful homestay for them out at OK Falls (the run turnaround)- I don't think they quite new how wonderful it was going to be. Doug and Di Corbishley have the most amazing house right on Skaha Lake and it is to die for. My parents were in heaven. I stayed right in town on Lakeshore Drive with the same homestay I have had the past two times here- Wilma is an absolute darling and I love staying with her. Sometimes you are lucky enough to meet a really beautiful person inside and out and Wilma certainly fits this description. We have become great friends over the past few years. This is the great thing about homestay. It always spins...

Thursday 09 Jul 2009 Granger Gazette (noreply@blogger.com)
OK before I hear the gasps of shock that I have finally gotten around to writing another blog, I must apologise for being what can only be described as "a serious slacker'. I have so many great photos from my time in Boulder and I had very good intentions of posting them here with some great blogs but somehow the time just flew by and before I knew it I was boarding a plane bound for Roth, Germany. But fear not because I am back and I will be posting all of my pics and some new ones from my time here in Europe.After spending about a month in Boulder training and loving every single second of it, I have now flown to Germany. I will be spending the next month here in Europe- I have 'Challenge Roth' this weekend, followed by two weeks in Verbier in Switzerland- stage 19 of the Tour de France finishes in Verbier and the next day is a rest day- gotta love that!!! I then head to Antwerp for the 70.3 at the beginning of August and then it is back to Boulder to train up for IM Canada- busy-...

Honu 70.3

Thursday 04 Jun 2009 Granger Gazette (noreply@blogger.com)
Alright- finally I have a bit of time to get my race report done- I must apologise for getting this to you all so late but I have been a little busy flying over to the mainland and then all the way across to the other side of the country- I honestly had no idea just how big this country actually was! But I am now settled in Woodbury, Connecticut- I have replaced the heat and humidity with the cool and dry air and the mongoose with the squirrel and am trying to get my head around the fact that I am going to be out there racing again on Sunday. My good friend Hillary does 'the double' like it is nothing, and by the double I mean double ironman. I, however, am about to attempt my own version of 'the double'- the double half-ironman. I am definitely expecting to hurt but I am going to enjoy the challenge that is for sure. I think I am just so happy to be back racing again and happy that my surgery is finally behind me and I am well on my way back to full fitness.OK- now for Honu- I have...

Riding on top of the world

Thursday 30 Apr 2009 Granger Gazette (noreply@blogger.com)
OK- so this is my first ever 'official' blog. Thanks to my good friend Amanda I am all set and have no excuses to keep you all up to date with the latest news and events taking place in my world. My big news for today is that I have finally sealed a new bike deal with the official Ironman bike- Ceepo. I am so excited and cannot wait for my new frame to arrive. Both Justin and I will now be riding Ceepo and I will debut my new bike at the Hawaii 70.3 late next month. Ceepo will now join K-Swiss and Powerbar as my main sponsors. Things have been going well so far this season. After starting the season with a win at IM Malaysia I turned my attention to a big block of training. Usually I have left Australia by now but this year Justin and I decided to stay until mid May- I am so glad we did as I had forgotten just how amazing the weather is here in Noosa during this time of the year. Today Justin and I set out for our usual thursday long ride- I have been really enjoying this ride as I...

Active MSers Feature: David Gillikin

Monday 28 May 2012 Kelly H Williamson (noreply@blogger.com)
As some of you may know, Multiple Sclerosis is something which is close to me and I have tried to help raise awareness and funds over the years. A few months ago, I came across a website called ActiveMSers. It was started by Dave Bexfield who was diagnosed in early 2006 with MS, in his late 30's. A writer at heart, he is also an avid traveler and an adventure seeker. His MS, as he said, 'burbled merrily along' for the first few years, but in 2009 it became very aggressive. He started taking part in a clinical research trial called Halt-MS (an autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplant using his own stem cells from his bone marrow, paired with high-dose chemotherapy). Since his transplant he has had zero progression physically. In Dave's words: "I'm on no daily medication for MS or for anything else, and the only supplement I take is Vitamin D. I'm still gimpy, using one or two forearm crutches or a walker when the legs get too stubborn. And for those wondering, yes I still exercise...

The 5K Off-Season

Thursday 05 Jan 2012 Kelly H Williamson (noreply@blogger.com)
Everyone seems to have their own take on the 'right' way to approach the off-season. If you ask 3 different people, you'll no doubt get 3 different answers. I have been racing since 2002 so seeing that it's now 2012, that is a lot of off-seasons I've been through. I like to approach it similar to how I approach nutrition. Listen to your body, be smart, have a conscience, and everything in moderation even moderation itself. Which leads me to my next point, I am not terribly good at sitting around on my ass for 2 weeks and literally doing NO training. I just cannot do it. I am too antsy, and I do this stuff because I really love it. I'll get moody and irritable and not nice to be around, just ask my husband! I have always enjoyed 4-6 weeks of doing something most days, not too much, but whatever my body tells me that it needs on the day. That is often a bit of a sleep in, a light swim of a maximal of 2-3k, and if there is a second workout it is something along the lines of a 1-hr trainer...

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

Geepers Creepers. I think that it is fair to say that I did not enter the race thinking that I would end the day on the top step of the podium. In the week before the race we saw both Raffa and Murray exit from Wimbledon, not that I am comparing myself to Raffa and Murray, but at the time it reminded me that there are no guarantees or certainties in sport and I shouldn't be writing myself in or out of the race beforehand. more

Stakes are high in men’s WTS Hamburg

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 [Triathlon News]

While the men’s races have historically been a three-man show with Javier Gomez Noya (ESP and the Brownlee brothers consistently dominating the podium, that story hasn’t played out to expectation so far this year. But all of the big players will meet in Hamburg for a mighty quick splash and dash sprint race that promises to be a nail-biter. more

Docherty, Kessler Look To Defend At 70.3 Vineman

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 Liz Hichens
Photo: Rocky Arroyo/Endurapix.comOne of the most popular 70.3 races on the circuit will take place in Sonoma County this weekend. In addition to 2,300 age groupers, some of the sport’s best professionals will be making the start at the 24th running of Ironman 70.3 Vineman. Some elites are in search of a good mid-season test of fitness, while others are working hard to garner any last-minute points they can toward qualification for the championship races. The Course The 70.3-mile course is a favorite among triathletes—it sells out quickly every year —with a calm swim and breathtaking views on the bike. The 1.2-mile swim kicks off at Johnson’s Beach in Guerneville in waters known for being shallow enough to stand up in certain areas. The 56-mile bike ride takes athletes on a point-to-point bike ride past hundreds of vineyards. Athletes then transition at Windsor High School before taking on an out-and-back run course through residential streets to the famed La Crema Winery. After 13.1...

Hamburg provides perfect Commonwealth Games preparation

Thursday 10 Jul 2014 Norsemen
The sixth round of the ITU World Triathlon Series heads for Hamburg this weekend with two exciting city-centre sprint races and the Mixed Relay world title being contested infront of one of the biggest crowds the sport ever sees. Athletes including the Brownlee brothers, Jodie Stimpson and Helen Jenkins will use this as their final preparation race before the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.  Last year’s race featured a dramatic head-to-head sprint finish between Alistair and Jonathan Brownlee. In the final dive for the finishing line it was Jonathan that claimed the victory in front of 300,000 fans in Hamburg. Jonathan Brownlee said: “Last year’s race in Hamburg was pretty memorable with my sprint finish with Alistair, and itwill be fast again this year as everyone is here. The big crowds also get behind us so it’s always a good race to come to.” Having recently won his third European title and coming into form at the right time, Alistair added: “The European Championships were...

Time to start the midwest tour…Back to back to back. 70.3 Muncie 70.3 Racine Challenge New Albany The only thing that would’ve made it better was if Steelhead was the first weekend of August instead of the 2nd weekend.

Osmo Water Pic Wednesday – Thanks to the Crowd!

Wednesday 09 Jul 2014 Haley
Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 7.51.45 PM I love, Love, LOVE getting water pic suggestions from blog readers and I’m super excited to share a few of my favorites! My Dynamo buddy Karl tweeted Popular Mechanics’ list of 10 incredibly cool swimming pools, including this crazy floating pool planned for New York City’s East River (also brought to my attention by Lectie): 2016. NYC. I need to check out this pool!!! And then go eat some New York pizza, of course!! As if lusting over domestic swimming holes isn’t enough, Tim sent me a CRAZY pic of what looks like an underwater waterfall in Mauritius: What?!?!? Where is Mauritius? And what the heck is an underwater waterfall?!?! I desperately needed to know so thank goodness for Google!! Answers: Mauritius is a little island off the coast of Africa And the “underwater waterfall” effect is actually sand falling into an underwater crevasse. Read all about it HERE. Mauritius actually made the Reader’s Choice list of the 35 Clearest Waters to Swim...

Do Professional Runners/Triathletes Matter?

Monday 02 Sep 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
Last week the Competitor Group announced their plan to drop their elite athlete program at all of their races, including the wildly popular Rock n’ Roll run series. They felt that the cost of continuing this program outweighed the benefit of bringing in top level athletes to their races. This news was very disappointing to me on a number of levels.I believe that professionals offer a type of credibility to a race. The pointy end of the field is the focus of media attention and the times that are set by pros often inspire those finishing behind them – a barometer of what the human body is capable of doing.The value of the professional athlete, whether at a running or triathlon event, has always been debatable. There are people who just don’t care what is happening in front of them at any given race while others staunchly follow the frontrunners and look forward to seeing how they perform. But, to those who don’t care about the pros, I hope my discourse will change your mind and help you...

The Fitness Conundrum

Sunday 01 Sep 2013 Joanna Zeiger (noreply@blogger.com)
It is a very fine line between ultimate fitness and injury. Whenever an athlete boasts that they are in the best shape of their life, inevitably they get injured shortly thereafter. I call it the fitness conundrum. In the triathlon world, athletes like Emma Snowsill, Lisa Norden, Paula Findlay and Terenzo Bozzone sustained serious injuries immediately after a seriously awesome performance. At the 2008 Olympics, Deena Kastor broke her foot during the marathon. Before every Olympics and World Championships, hordes of athletes pull out due to injury.I am now one of those athletes. This summer, I was arguably in the best running shape of my life. My half marathon times improved immensely, I saw times on the track I never imagined I would see again, I floated through my weekly long runs. I was on fire. And then, bam, just like that, I got injured. The America’s Finest City half marathon two weeks ago was my best race this season. I did not set a PR, but given the course terrain, my overall...
