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...

1/3 of 2012 Unaccounted For?!!! Branson70.3, Kona, & more!!

Wednesday 16 Jan 2013 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
Did I literally fall off the face of the earth since August or did I just forget that a blog here and there is not a bad thing?? Must write... must write... would iterate through my thoughts... but I had so much going on that I would procrastinate again and again. My life seemed to be on a roller coaster... which I have come to realize I actually never really get off.... thank goodness there is the brief stop at the end so I can catch my breath but it never fails it always takes off again and I often feel I am just closing my eyes and screaming at the top of my lungs just holding on for the duration of the ride. Some excitement riddled in with every emotion known to man. I always make it to the end... I always can open my eyes again... sometimes I can't see the end in sight but thankfully it arrives and I begin the journey all over again.Mid August, post being in London for Oakley during the Olympics I dove into training. I crashed my bike while out on a ride in Boulder with Leanda and...

2014 Wongstar Racing in Review

Sunday 21 Dec 2014 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
Well, I did a Turkey Trot 10k on Thanksgiving morning, which I never race reported, as it was pretty pathetic (for me). If you must know, my first and last miles were great (6:36 and 6:37) but those four in between were pretty awful (7:24, 8:07, 7:54, 7:19). I just didn't care. I had some intentions to break my 10k PR again, as it was only 2.5 weeks after the Bay Bridge 10k, but my body had

What’s up…

Sunday 21 Dec 2014 Lsanderstri
New Training Room I apologize for my long absence. I made a major move, so it took a while to settle into the new digs. I have also implemented a lot of new things into my training regimen, which have taken time to adapt to. After several weeks I am beginning to find a rhythm. The first major change was my training room. Erin and I made the move from Hamilton back to my hometown of Windsor Ontario. We were set on finding a place that has both a bedroom and a spare room, which could be my training studio. For those who don’t know, in Hamilton, Erin was kind enough to allow me to convert our bedroom into a training studio, and we slept in the living room. This was getting old pretty quick, especially since I am trying to get to bed at a decent time, and often Erin works until 8 p.m. and so will stay up a bit later than I. Fortunately, in Windsor, we were able to find a place with a bedroom and a small spare room. Here it is: You will notice that Old Landice is no longer present. He has been replaced with...

IRONMAN CANADA: 3RD PLACE

Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Mackenzie Madison)
Wow. What a race! What a month! Prior to racing Ironman Whistler I’ve also seen some success and taken two other half distance titles since placing second at Victoria 70.3. I won Pacific Crest Long Course in Bend, Oregon and the Subaru Vancouver Half in B.C. You can probably tell by now that I love racing in the Pacific Northwest. This season I have discovered many things about myself. Especially about the “why’s” of life… Why I do what I do… Why I train, why I coach… Why I live my life the way I do. I have always used athletics as a source of stability in my life.  I use it as a tool to apply reasoning to pretty much every aspect of my life. I realized that I do triathlon to live my life- not to live to do triathlons. I rediscovered my love for other things in my life: new and old.  I rediscovered that balance. I finally let go of blaming myself for not being as successful as I wanted and knew I could be to be in triathlon over the past couple years. I started placing my...

Kona 2014

Tuesday 14 Oct 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
I've been here in Kona for a month now. It was great to get here early as I had the opportunity to spend some time with Matt Dixon and Paul Buick and work on a whole lot of things which was extremely beneficial to me. I was in the form of my life going into this race, especially on the bike, that was the thing that was going the best (believe it or not!), and so I was super excited to get out there and race. I had worked the hardest I had ever worked, was in the best shape, certainly the most well prepared (thanks to Matt and Paul's help) and also was feeling the freshest I have ever been going into the race. In years gone past my cycling has always been my weakest leg in Kona, but it was going so well before the race. A whole year of working on so many skills and everything finally was clicking into place and I was filled with confidence, in the end I think my cycling time really isn't a reflection at all of where I was at, but in every Ironman there are so many people with stories of...

Metaman Bintan: First Victory of 2014!

Monday 25 Aug 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
I have worked hard all year, and have been on the podium many, many times and put in some great PB performances, but up until now had not stepped onto that highest step of the podium. I am so happy to take that first victory of 2014 now, in one of my favourite races.For those of you who don't know about Metaman Bintan here is a quick overview. Bintan is a little island just off Singapore. So it is really easy to get to for most people. I have often wanted to race more in Asia, but as soon as you have to add connecting flights from New Zealand the price sky rockets. So here there is just one flight, into Singapore and then a quick taxi straight to the ferry, and 50min later you are on this beautiful island. It is not crowded here, and you can safely bike around to train no problem. The race takes place at Nirwana Gardens Resort Hotel I love races like this as it is very low stress in the days leading up to the race and the race itself. We swim on the resort beach, we bike...

Back into it

Sunday 20 Jul 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
I have had a superb break these last 2 weeks and tomorrow will be back at it. I thought I would be quite mentally fatigued from such a big campaign in Europe (4 half iron distance and 1 ironman in 2 months) but actually I am mentally in very good shape, feeling very enthusiastic and sprightly for the rest of the season. That is the way to tell, last year when I took a break I ended up taking 3-4 weeks off and struggled with my enthusiasm to want to get back into training, I think this was as I was struggling so much with the sinus problems last year and it really took it's toll and now that is behind me I feel so much better. And physically the break of course always does wonders for the body, it will always be hard getting back into the training again but I always find my form bounces back pretty fast with only 2 weeks off and I can feel the effects of the rest in the months down the track.So after making the very long trip back to NZ we got down to celebrating Benji's 3rd birthday...

Ironman Pays D' Aix

Sunday 18 May 2014 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
This week I raced Ironman Pays D' Aix in France. We arrived on Tuesday and I rode the course on Wednesday and it was absolutely spectacular, reminded me a bit of St George in USA. The course was very challenging with 1100m of climbing which was longer climbs and long, tricky descents. I love to climb but I'm really not a great descender so this was going to be my biggest challenge. I was up against Jeanne Collonge a French athlete who I knew to be an outstanding cyclist and runner (particularly on the hilly courses), Tine Deckers who I raced last week in Rimini (an amazing cyclist particularly on these types of courses who was 2nd to my 4th place in Rimini), and Susie Hignett who was the defending champion and who had done an outstanding time on the course in 2013 as well as a few others I knew less about.The swim I felt really not great, not sure why but I came out of the water first woman although probably not quite with the lead I would have liked. Onto the bike and I felt pretty...

5th title at Challenge Wanaka

Saturday 19 Jan 2013 Gina Crawford (noreply@blogger.com)
Yes this report is up super duper fast. This is because we will be moving back to the caravan soon without a lot of internet access. It has been so good being put up at the Alpine Resort in Wanaka. Benji has his own room for the first time since May 2012!!! We are starting to feel like a normal family, but then back to the caravan. The building of our new house is coming along nicely here in Wanaka and in April we will be able to move in and be normal again for a while at least!! This was a very emotional victory for me. On Sunday night I came down with a stomach bug and I was thinking oh no if this is as bad as the one post Challenge Henley, pre Kona (where I couldn't eat for 5 days and became so weak) then there is no way I can possibly race. Luckily I bounced back a lot quicker (probably because I wasn't recovering from an ironman and adjusting to 12 hr time difference jetlag). I was bad on Monday, on Tuesday I did some light training but not able to eat anything but bananas, on...

Closing Off 2014, A Year In Review

Sunday 21 Dec 2014 Tim
2014 As 2014 draws to a close, it’s time to review the year. I don’t want to get too philosophical here, but I think it was the Greek philosopher Socrates who said, “The unexamined life is not worth living.” Strong words. My version is – “If you never look back, you never see how far you’ve come.” And 2014 has certainly been a journey, both professionally and personally. There have been highs, lows and plenty of lessons learned along the way. So, here’s 2014 – the year that was. Over and Out Coming into 2014, I was feeling highly motivated. 2013 was ultimately a disappointing and frustrating year for me, with five 2nd places and no wins. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride! My last win was the Ironman Australia 70.3 Championship in Mandurah, Western Australia in 2012, so I was pumped and ready to take on the inaugural Scody Challenge in Melbourne. The setup in Melbourne was great. The swim leg in Port Phillip Bay was followed by three laps of nice riding along Beach Road. It’s a quick,...

9 days in CA and the JFT105 Challenge

Wednesday 13 Nov 2013 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
"Don't be upset by the results you didn't get with the work you didn't do." Saw this t-shirt, love it, want it! (Too bad they are men's shirts and out of stock in Small's.)   Consistency has been my problem since the end of my short-lived professional triathlon career. These days I only half-heartedly train for stuff, sometimes, when there is a race on the near horizon, and haven't had

An olympic race in Sardinia!

Saturday 11 Jun 2011 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Holy brown cow that race was short and tough. A quick race recap the day before another race tomorrow! Sardinia 11 Olympic race was upon me before I knew what was happening. A long flight across the seas from Brasil to catch up with Luke and my beloved Sardinia Tri Campers. All things were amazing in Italy and I got to toe the line at one of my favorite races. Last Saturday turned out to be quite the race with over 25 pro's lining up. ITU/Olympic distance is NOT my specialty but I was keen for the punishment just 6 days post IM Brasil. I rinsed out the race kit and polished the trusty steed. I racked her and placed the recycled non pee Kwicky Blade Lites (clearly did not drink enough in IM B but thats another story) into the transition @ 12 pm. Race kick off was set for 2 pm. Bless the Euro's and their afternoon races. The race went as follows: Swim ... awesome swim and came out 4th just behind some of the ITU chickas!!! Clearly this was going to be the days highlite. T1... mmmm may...

Big Girl Pants

Wednesday 01 Jun 2011 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Well time fly's when you are having fun. Going into Brazil I had 4 full weeks under new coach Siri and 1 week in Texas watching Lukey but still training and one week taper. I knew I was swimming well and running well but I had no idea how the old bike would go post ribs and crash. Turns out the day was comical to say the least but I learnt more about myself and my ability to push than ever before. Here is the days recap. Swim : 58 mins. Sounds great, was good but absolutely bloody terrifying. For the first time in a race I was scared shitless! I got the bejesus kicked out of me and I honestly thought "Oh crap I am going to drown" Some not so chiverous (spelling) gentlemen decided to pull me down and nearly drown me but I decided that this was not how the Memphis Story was going to end. I gathered my composure, grew a pair and got going. I ran through transition like a woman possessed. I jumped on the trusty Scott steed and bolted out of the gates. For all of about 1 mile. I could not...

When life gives you lemons ... make lemonade!

Friday 20 May 2011 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Since my last blog months ago there has been a life overhaul. Somewhere in April I turned 30 something. For my birthday I bought myself a present. A coach. Not just a best friend whom loves me and has helped me write my own programs (Belinda you are the best friend a girl could ask for) but a real full time nazi!!! Jokes, my new coach is no nazi but she is a wealth of knowledge and so passionate she instantly rocks your world. She has had me on her plan for the last 5 weeks and my god I had no idea I could work this hard and feel so good. Siri has an amazing squad out of Borrego Springs and Santa Monica CA. A bunch of my friend are with her and we are a perfect fit. Even though I just spent the last month in Kona with Lukey I got more out of my training and myself than I ever imagined. The ribs have healed and I am fit as. I am so looking forward to Brazil. I will fly down to South America with the other BFF Hillary Biscay on Monday. However before this happens there is a little race...

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...

News for the NY

Thursday 10 Feb 2011 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
WWow how time has flown. I could regress and look back over the last few months and tell you stories of what's been going on but most of you have seen my Twitter or Facebook so I wont bore you with the re hashing of Christmas / NY / Jan floods and Perth adventures. Let me just summarize by saying by the time I got to training in the last week of November I was in for some trouble. I had to pay the piper. The off season/wedding extravaganza was in forced due to Luke's injury and man o man did we get FAT! Fast forward to today Feb 10th and I am just 4 weeks out from the beginning of a new season. I am very excited. First up will be IM NZ. Have not been back for a few years and am excited to go see the land of the long white cloud again. Straight after I race there it is off to the wonderous new land of Abu Dhabi for Lukey. I have entered the half race but I am not sure how I will pull up post IM so we will see. Also just one week after Abu Dhabi we jet over to San Juan 70.3. I have...

Bad Memphis but happy Memphis!

Sunday 31 Oct 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Cruzin' in Kona on my Scott Sub 10!Out in the saddle on the Queen K!On the Queen K with Bridesmaid Alice who was also racing.Getting ready for the big day!!!A sneaky champers before the ceremony with my girls!Bridesmaids Alice and Summer!The wedding party!Girls getting girly!Jimmy and memphis get hitched!Well what a busy month. After a broken wheel @ 30kms in IMW I had to abandon my race. I was really bummed but I went back out and cheered on all my friends. It was great to see fellow K-Swisser's Joe Gambles and Gina Crawford take down the wins. I also had the chance to hang with BFF Hillary Biscay. I had a stopover in Chicago and that meant one thing. A massive box of Chicago mix popcorn. Post race Matty Lieto, Maki , Hillary and I smashed that thing. Only a week later and I was off to Cancun to a half IM race. I was entered and fired up but could barely walk with a slice in my foot. I entered, I finished but hell it was not pretty. I finished in a terrible time but dam it I started...

Cows and Corn.

Friday 10 Sep 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Ironman Wisconsin is here. I am in a fabulous homestay with Bethany Collins. She is adorable and has a bit of a menagerie. She has 1 dog and 2 cats. They are fantastic. I love them and they come and sleep with me in the spare room. I am of course covered in fur. Another high lite of this trip is that I will be racing with BFF Hillary Biscay. YEAH!!! She is completing the triple like a wild woman. Challenge Copenhagen, Ironman Louisville, Ironman Wisconsin. HECK. Madison WI is beautiful. Very country. Cows and corn everywhere. I went for a ride of the bike loop the other day and took some of these shots. With only 2 more sleeps I am ready to go. Sans Lukey of course. He is in Bend still training up a storm for Hawaii which is only 4 weeks away. Stay tuned Memphis x

Only 4 more sleeps.

Tuesday 31 Aug 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Only 4 more sleeps till I pack up and abandon Luke. I am off on a "solo" adventure to IM Wisconsin. Well I am not sure how solo it actually is when you are meeting up with BFF Hillary and Mr Cat. Not to mention the K-Swiss crew and Guy Crawford but you get my drift. This will be the first race in ages I am off to on my own. Before I go I must pack up all the ludicrous amounts of stuff I have collected here and put / send and pack it all into whatever categories I deem suitable. I will also hold one last dinner.... Luke, Matty Lieto and Conrad are going to be sitting down to a good old Aussie Lamb roast. Now one does not like to brag but in this case I will. I am a fabulous cook. Quite frankly lamb is my specialty and I will be pulling out all the stops when I whip up this amazing last meal. I will take some happy snaps of said meat when I make it but in the mean time it is Tuesday so not only do I have to go shopping for all the trimmings but I also have to squeeze in the final...

Bend .... How I love you.

Monday 23 Aug 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Well it is now 3 weeks till IM Wisconsin and I am training the house down. I have been in the proverbial box on numerous occasions. What box you ask? The agony box, the hurt locker or the House of Pain. All are basically the same place. The training here is amazing but it is quite the lonely road as I do everything myself. Well kind of. I go to the pool with the boys but don't swim in their lane for obvious reasons. I do the same sets it just take me a little longer. I run my long runs out on the trails at the same time as them only I have to run longer. And a little slower. My friend is my MP3 player and I have spent a small fortune on downloads of late. The Dead Weather keeps me rocking along and my mind of the mountain lions that have been recently reported in the area. My long rides are the same as Lukey's but once again we ride separately but on the same routes. I have managed to make friends with some cool people at the gas station @ Prineville. They think I am crazy and find it...

IM Lake Placid, Mr Cat and promises kept.

Saturday 07 Aug 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Hillary waiting for Mr Cat.Are you going our way?If you zoom in our butt cheeks say "GO CAT"So I felt as though I should write a blog in dedication to a promise made and a promise kept. Once upon a time Miss Hillary rang Memphis and suggested that when we were in Lake Placid supporting our friends Mr Cat and Kate B we should spice things up a little. Hills suggested we cheer in bikini's. "OK I am in." was the reply. Now this sound all good and well but one must take into account a few variables. First Lake Placid is not know for it's sunshine and heat on race day. More like torrential down pour and sideways rain. Clearly this was going to be a chili day. Second I had just spent 6 week in active recovery and on a European eating extravaganza. I was most certainly NOT bikini ready but a promise is a promise. You can not let your best friends down over a bit too much cheese and wine.I was a spotter for the women's race and was escorted around LP by motorcycle rider Jim :) Thanks Jim. Out...

Europe 2010

Friday 06 Aug 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
I loved riding here. It was so beautiful. Valle du Jour.The day Lance fell and lost his chance at the tour.The lead boys about 2km into a 15km climb.The beautiful lake we ran around every day in Valle du Jour.Chris Horner our local Bendite.The early morning was filled with people trying to get a glimpse of Lance.Memphis found a Frenchie friend.Our hotel. Quite charming really.I have no idea how I put 3 kgs on during this trip.At the top of the climb the jumbo TV was awesome.A gift for JJ.After climbing all morning we deserved this burger.

Dear Blog

Thursday 05 Aug 2010 Noreply@blogger.com (AMANDA)
Dear Blog,Once again I seem to have abandoned you. This usually happens when I travel too much and train heavily. In this case it is both. Since we last hung out I have been to more countries than I care to remember and have swam,rode and run more that I can recall. I will do my best to bring you up to date. Post Morocco we headed back to Spain. Spain to London to see my bff Clare and her man. Stopped off at the Glastonbury festival. Returned to Spain said a sad goodbye to the Marbella crew :( and headed to Italy France and Switzerland for work. There was a load of training and some Tour du France action. Cadel slapped his race number on my ass. I thought I was going to be able to help him to victory but disaster struck the next day and he crashed. As did Lance. The fairy tale was over for this year. But I have a memento that is now stuck on the front of our wedding planner book ha ha ha. I am not your average bride.Valley du Jour was awesome. I burnt off loads of the calories I ate in...

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...

Monday 22 Dec 2014 Paul Moore
Zone3 have announced a number of nationwide initiatives for 2015 which will see the brand continuing their long standing support for grass roots triathlon in the country.

Interview with Jodie Swallow: “The spectacle and progression of standard in long distance triathlon is evolving monthly”

Monday 22 Dec 2014 Norsemen
This month you voted Jodie Swallow our Triathlete of the Year 2014 in your thousands, after a brilliant and consisting year bothering podiums and winning big races. It was a seminal year for Swallow, who had left one mentor in Brett Sutton and found another in super-coach Siri Lindley. We caught up with Jodie for a special interview, to hear about her season and more. Hi Jodie, congratulations on being named the Beyond Going Long Triathlete of the Year 2014, what would you like to say to the readers who voted for you? A huge thank you to all who voted for me and took the time out of their day to support. I have had so many messages from people throughout the year that are invested in my career, not only when it is going well but when it is a struggle too. There were loads of highlights for you this year, what stands out? Probably the 2nd at Ironman 70.3 World Champs. I’m pretty proud of how I raced throughout the season though…very measured and very consistent. The fourth...

The sensible eating guide to Christmas

Sunday 21 Dec 2014 Admin
iStock_000010786124XSmall Well, holidays have arrived and we have entered the week of Christmas! Cue the entry of a plentiful supply of delicious food and drinks that is just oh so difficult to resist! It is best not to be too serious with your intake over the Christmas break and instead be realistic in your goals to ensure you enjoy yourself with family and friends. Aim to Maintain: Christmas is most certainly not the time to try and reduce your weight or substantially change body composition. Instead, goals are still important, but should be relaxed and adapted to the season. Rather than putting yourself under pressure to lose weight or continue weight loss over Christmas, aim instead to keep weight stable. A stable weight over the Christmas/New Year period is absolutely a win in my book! Do Not Deny Yourself: There is nothing like saying no to something to make you want it even more. Take a different view going into Christmas this year and instead of saying ‘I will not eat any of the cheese and biscuits’,...

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...

1/3 of 2012 Unaccounted For?!!! Branson70.3, Kona, & more!!

Wednesday 16 Jan 2013 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
Did I literally fall off the face of the earth since August or did I just forget that a blog here and there is not a bad thing?? Must write... must write... would iterate through my thoughts... but I had so much going on that I would procrastinate again and again. My life seemed to be on a roller coaster... which I have come to realize I actually never really get off.... thank goodness there is the brief stop at the end so I can catch my breath but it never fails it always takes off again and I often feel I am just closing my eyes and screaming at the top of my lungs just holding on for the duration of the ride. Some excitement riddled in with every emotion known to man. I always make it to the end... I always can open my eyes again... sometimes I can't see the end in sight but thankfully it arrives and I begin the journey all over again.Mid August, post being in London for Oakley during the Olympics I dove into training. I crashed my bike while out on a ride in Boulder with Leanda and...

2014 Wongstar Racing in Review

Sunday 21 Dec 2014 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
Well, I did a Turkey Trot 10k on Thanksgiving morning, which I never race reported, as it was pretty pathetic (for me). If you must know, my first and last miles were great (6:36 and 6:37) but those four in between were pretty awful (7:24, 8:07, 7:54, 7:19). I just didn't care. I had some intentions to break my 10k PR again, as it was only 2.5 weeks after the Bay Bridge 10k, but my body had

What’s up…

Sunday 21 Dec 2014 Lsanderstri
New Training Room I apologize for my long absence. I made a major move, so it took a while to settle into the new digs. I have also implemented a lot of new things into my training regimen, which have taken time to adapt to. After several weeks I am beginning to find a rhythm. The first major change was my training room. Erin and I made the move from Hamilton back to my hometown of Windsor Ontario. We were set on finding a place that has both a bedroom and a spare room, which could be my training studio. For those who don’t know, in Hamilton, Erin was kind enough to allow me to convert our bedroom into a training studio, and we slept in the living room. This was getting old pretty quick, especially since I am trying to get to bed at a decent time, and often Erin works until 8 p.m. and so will stay up a bit later than I. Fortunately, in Windsor, we were able to find a place with a bedroom and a small spare room. Here it is: You will notice that Old Landice is no longer present. He has been replaced with...

IRONMAN CANADA: 3RD PLACE

Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Mackenzie Madison)
Wow. What a race! What a month! Prior to racing Ironman Whistler I’ve also seen some success and taken two other half distance titles since placing second at Victoria 70.3. I won Pacific Crest Long Course in Bend, Oregon and the Subaru Vancouver Half in B.C. You can probably tell by now that I love racing in the Pacific Northwest. This season I have discovered many things about myself. Especially about the “why’s” of life… Why I do what I do… Why I train, why I coach… Why I live my life the way I do. I have always used athletics as a source of stability in my life.  I use it as a tool to apply reasoning to pretty much every aspect of my life. I realized that I do triathlon to live my life- not to live to do triathlons. I rediscovered my love for other things in my life: new and old.  I rediscovered that balance. I finally let go of blaming myself for not being as successful as I wanted and knew I could be to be in triathlon over the past couple years. I started placing my...
