2013 All Wrapped Up

Monday 30 Sep 2013 Admin
All Wrapped Up Yup- unfortunately looks like I am down and out for the rest of 2013. I took a little spill on the bike 2 weeks ago and after ignoring the pain in my wrist for that time I went and got an x-ray and sure enough… Broken. Whoops This definitely bummed me out [...]

Ironman Lake Tahoe “Race” Report.

Friday 27 Sep 2013 Admin
Am I dumb enough to try and do the 2 toughest Ironman races on the circuit just 4 weeks apart. Uhhh, yes. Yes I am.  After Ironman Canada I was both pleased and disappointed. My effort on the day was there, but in the end I feel I just messed up the little things that [...]

Ironman Canada, Back to Ironman Racing!

Thursday 26 Sep 2013 Admin
It’s been 3 years since I toed the line at a full ironman distance event, and can’t tell you how excited/nervous/scared I was to get through Ironman Canada this last weekend in Whistler B.C.. The last Ironman I did was Ironman Canada in 2010, so it seemed fitting to get the ball rolling where it [...]

Lake Stevens 70.3 5th place

Tuesday 23 Jul 2013 Admin
Lake Stevens 70.3 is as close to a hometown as it gets for me. 6 hours of driving and many Pacific Northwesterners towing the line and supporting each other all the way. The race venue takes over the small town of Lake Stevens which gives the race a small town feel and an “old school” [...]

Asterisk * A race report explanation

Thursday 13 Jun 2013 Admin
You may notice that I have not written race reports all that often or consistently. The reason for this is … I HATE excuses. Anything that happens on the race course is racing. It seems that many reports I read have excuses thrown in with, shoulda, coulda, woulda. I have been bad on race reports [...]

Boise 70.3 – A Day in No man’s Land

Thursday 13 Jun 2013 Admin
The wake up alarm came later than normal for Boise 70.3 which was a welcome change  as the race has a noon start time. What was not so welcome was the splitting headache, stomach cramps, and a pale complexion I woke up to. Sweet. I spent the next 4 hours doing my best to get [...]

Sometimes it’s not always about cash and points

Friday 05 Apr 2013 Josh Edgar
Next weekend I get to go back to one of my favorite races and one I have competed in many many times. Vineman actually was my first half ironman and a staple to help me get my experience in the distance, as it was right down the street from my hometown early in my racing [...]

Hawaii 70.3

Sunday 18 Nov 2012 Josh Edgar
On Tuesday I was lucky enough to step off the plane in Kona, Hawaii for a week in what has become my home away from home.  I have had the pleasure to be a part of Team Mauna Lani for the last year, and it was truly like coming back home when checking into my [...]

Wildflower… A pretty great day, stickin’ to the plan.

Friday 25 May 2012 Josh Edgar
Wildflower is one of my favorite races on the circuit, if not my favorite.  It holds a special place in my heart as it was the place where I first attempted this triathlon thing and began the life change that has brought me to where I am today.  Wildflower is back to triathlon roots, a [...]

Not “messin” Texas…

Sunday 20 May 2012 Josh Edgar
Back in Texas.  Yeeee Haw. Believe it or not, I actually used to live in the “LoneStar” state, and for a time used to be know as “BigTex”   The 2 years I lived in Texas were spent in The Woodlands, which is about 90 minutes from Galveston, where I found myself racing this weekend [...]

Port Macquarie 70.3

Tuesday 21 Oct 2014 Lisa (noreply@blogger.com)
Moving in the right directionAfter a rough few months of health issues I was back to my old self again in training and looking forward to racing. Going into Port Mac 80.3, I was the defending champion. The week leading into this race I started to get the nerves of butterflies back in the tummy, which for me is a good sign that I'm ready.I really love racing in Port Macquarie for several reasons. First, it feels like home. I have been competing here since Ironman shifted here from Forster in 2005. Second, I know a lot of the locals, and the course gives you some honest racing. It really is good to see the women's field growing each year as well. Thanks to Ironman Asia Pacific for organizing my wonderful accommodation at the Observatory Hotel, I felt like a princess at this place.I drove to Port Macquarie on the Friday with my son Josh, and my Dad not too far behind. After attending to a few media commitments, there was time to relax. I had a wonderful night's sleep and was up...

MVA Racing: the last four years

Tuesday 17 Sep 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (MarkyV)
Over these first four years of devoting myself solely to coaching (still working on getting back to my own racing tho) I've been very fortunate to have had the chance to work with a multitude of talented, driven athletes.  This has resulted in 24 athletes having qualified for the big hula dance in that time and three podium appearances and umeke bowls.  While that seems to be the standard that so many set as the goal to be obtained the fulfillment that I've gotten from it all is far more.  It's the daily interactions with my athletes both locally and around the globe.  The curiosity they have towards self improvement, the elation they experience when success is found and seeing the fruits of their labour laid out before them after a great race.  Having the chance to make a change in people's lives to improve them, to help them achieve their athletic ambitions but also to help them view the world through a different lens.  There's a reason I say my work is...

Making Enemy Contact with a Little Bedazzle

Monday 17 Feb 2014 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
Lately I've had a lot of time to think. Yes, it's true I actually think. I generally like my eyes focused on the present, and the best way to set myself up for a successful future. And like any human, I can lose sight or falter or just kick myself in the butt and wonder, "What the heck was I thinking?" But such is life, learning and growing, and all that jazz. I sometimes do have to remind myself to take a look back, not only to see how far I've come, but also some of the incredible experiences I've been through. And some of those experiences are not ones that I would repeat, but definitely made me a better and stronger person for doing them. My mind of late drifts back to 10 years ago. I often feel like my life is ruled by 2 six year olds, who are naturally demanding just based on their age. I laugh to myself thinking about what I used to be in charge of; the responsibility that I was given. My kids will never know that girl, and I can't help but smile and think, "They have...

New Orleans 70.3, errrr, 62.18725

Tuesday 19 Apr 2011 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
New Orleans, New Orleans! I did this race 2 years ago and absolutely loved it. I knew if I could fit it on my schedule for 2011 that I'd be back. There was some question after my bike crash if I could be ready for Galveston, and I felt one extra week of healing/training would do me well so I went ahead and signed up. It actually turned out well. After about 3 weeks down from Costa Rica, I got a great block of training in and came into New Orleans feeling very fresh and surprisingly fit. I love it when a plan comes together at the last moment! I absolutely love my Kestrel 4000, it fits me so much better than my previous bike, and it's just so smooth. Also, Zipp was kind enough to send me some new race tires and I couldn't believe how much better (and faster!) the bike felt. I digress...I left on Thursday afternoon and made it out before all the tornadoes hit Oklahoma. Meanwhile, Lucas and the kids had to camp out in the basement for awhile! No damage, everything was fine. I got to the...

Joining Ride for HeartKids

Monday 20 Oct 2014 Tim
Ride-for-HeartKids-Photo-2 If you spend a lot of time on your bike, training, racing, getting to and from work, or just because you can, why not consider joining the Ride for HeartKids? These guys motto is to ‘Challenge Yourself, Make a Difference’ and by setting yourself a goal and raising funds to help HeartKids in Australia I know that we can all make that difference. Ten year old Thomas Henderson-Smith is a HeartKid who can’t run because of his heart condition. But he is participating in the Ride for HeartKids and has raised over $1000. What a little champion! Check out their website for more information.

California catch-up!

Monday 20 Oct 2014 Jocelyn Wong (noreply@blogger.com)
I am very behind on blogging, and need to play some catch-up before my big race on Saturday. YIKES! It's already race week for the Beach2Battleship half! Well, what better thing to do during a taper week than catch up on blogging... Since the last update, we took a trip home to California (where I ran a cross country race for the first time in 16 years), came home just in time to leave again for

Second. In the Universe.

Saturday 18 Oct 2014 Ben Hoffman
Screen shot 2014-10-18 at 12.01.12 PM Once upon a time there was a triathlete from Grand Junction, Colorado who traveled to a far away land to chase his dream… It does still seem a little surreal (maybe even like a fairytale) to be typing a race report from the Ironman World Championship in Hawaii where I get to say that I am 2nd. In the universe (as my mom wrote to me in an email after). It’s not at all to say that I didn’t believe in myself or the possibility of a high finish in Kona, but the plan has always been longer-term, and in some sense I am reeling, suffering a good form of whiplash from the accelerated upward trajectory. I came prepared for a top ten in body and mind, and technically I got that, but a podium at worlds? I’m just thrilled. The story starts way too far back to recall it all, as is the case with any of our lives that lead to a great moment. Instead, I suppose that touching on the energy around my time on the island will suffice for now. I arrived about...

Down But Not Out!!!

Tuesday 21 May 2013 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
Has it really been one month since I lay there staring at the ceiling in my hospital bed wondering how I  had come so close to death... my footing almost taken from beneath me... my story was almost in the last chapter... almost to the place where I was about to meet my Maker... and yet... again I knew it was not my time. How?? Because the way that day unfolded I knew my life still had a purpose and there were still more chapters to be written.I always thought how crazy it was to hear about professional athletes just dropping mid workout and everyone going... what happened??? They were so healthy, fit, and young!!! And there I was... almost that statistic. I honestly used to joke "oh that would be the best way to go... just drop dead while doing something you love" BUT I WAS JUST KIDDING!!! Thankfully God knew that.How to get someones attention...1) tap lightly on the door and whisper "hello? anybody home??"2) knock normally... waiting for the door to be opened. If no one answers...

More at the Oakley Safehouse

Wednesday 08 Aug 2012 Jenny Fletcher (noreply@blogger.com)
A day doesn't go by here in the Oakley Safehouse without athletes coming in, without fun conversations, amazing live afternoon music, being able to watch all the events live on the TV's, and Oakley presenting the podium finishers with a special gift from Oakley. It's so exciting to experience and live. Have I already said how blessed I feel. Once again Thank you to Oakley whom feels like my family and ESPNW for this great opportunity.Here are more photo's from the Safehouse!!!Every afternoon there is live music. This is Lucy Kitt. Her music was amazing. Lucy is a singer/songwriter from the Southeast. With a raw talent and unique music style her blend of folk, rock, and country blues does her voice justice. Check her out.Canada's Women's 8 was in the house. Lovely meeting these bunch of girls. What a great race they had.and of course my day wouldn't be complete without seeing some of the best in the sport of Triathlon come to the Safehouse. Erin Densham who finished 3rd along with Lisa...

Where has summer gone?!

Saturday 02 Aug 2014 Hillarybiscay
photo (63) I just realized that it is August and that I missed all of July here! I promise I did not intend to quit blogging but the triple-job juggling has managed to get the best of me. All the “work” has been worthwhile though as my babies—my TeamHPB kidlets and SMASH –have been, well, smashing it. Summer highlights thus far: Revitalize I came home from my Australian racing-fest and went straight into a life-changing weekend at Revitalize, a wellness summit put on by the amazing people at MindBodyGreen. It was a mind-expanding weekend in which I had the opportunity to spend time with some of my all-time favorite people, like Rich Roll and his wife Julie Piatt, and also to meet so many incredible new people—all thought leaders in the world of wellness. And everyone was so eager to learn from one another. The weekend involved two full days of content that was live-streamed over the internet on MindBodyGreen and I was fortunate to be asked to speak on a couple different topics. If you are...

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...

Running in the Energy Lab

Saturday 18 Oct 2014 Tim
P9270123 One things for sure, Kona isn’t for the faint hearted. The battle on the run proved to be my biggest challenge. The last 6km I was battling through fatigue along with harsh cramping in my legs. Overall of the 42km run I averaged 4:03/km which equated to a 2h:50m marathon. Below you can see my run splits over the course vs terrain (elevation).

Samuels set to defend XTERRA World title

Wednesday 22 Oct 2014 [Triathlon News]

New Zealand Olympian and ITU road triathlon star Nicky Samuels returns to Maui to defend her XTERRA World Championship crown next Sunday. This time, she’ll have a bulls-eye on her back. “It’s always easier going into a race with no expectations. Last year I was there for my family and the race was a bonus. This year it will be different, definitely have a target on my back but I’ll give it my best to keep it there,” said Samuels. more

Lesley Paterson Sidelined for Maui

Tuesday 21 Oct 2014 [Triathlon News]

In the last five years Lesley Paterson has been a powerhouse in Maui winning back-to-back World Championships in 2011 and 2012 and finishing runner-up twice in 2009 and 2013. This year, however, she’ll have to settle for being a No. 1 fan. Paterson courageously returned to the sport to race at the XTERRA USA Championship in Utah last month after being away all year while working through injuries and Lyme disease. She had an amazing race and finished third, but the effort proved too much. more

Lucy Gossage, The race report I didn’t want to write

Lucy Gossage, The race report I didn’t want to write

Monday 20 Oct 2014 [Triathlon News]

It’s hard to articulate what I feel one week on from Hawaii, a trip that really was the best of times and the worst of times. I’d always said I’d be happy whatever the outcome if I went there and did myself justice. That didn’t happen and I can’t pretend I’m not disappointed. I’m better than my race there and I’m gutted I couldn’t put a decent race together on the day I really wanted to, the day that really mattered. more

Ironman New Zealand – A Most Amazing Ironman Experience

Wednesday 22 Oct 2014 Karl Hayes
Lake Taupo If Ironman is about the race day experience for you then Ironman New Zealand is one of the best Ironman experiences in the world. Just ask anyone who has done it and other Ironman events around the world. From the day you arrive in the city of Taupo in the middle of the North Island to the day you leave every bit will remain a memory of a lifetime. The city embraces Ironman like no other. Aid stations start popping up weeks before the event to support the people who arrive well in advance to put the final touches on their Ironman training. Stunning Lake Taupo Situated on Lake Taupo (160km around) the race is one of the few where you can actually drink the water you are swimming in to keep hyrdrated during this stage of the race. Taking in Lake Taupo and the mountains in the distance is how most start each day. The famous Maori Rock Carvings are a must do as are many of the adventure sports around Taupo. White water rafting, Bungee Jumping, Sailing, Trout Fishing and more are all within...
