Memorial Day

Friday 22 May 2015 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
My incredible sponsor Coeur Sports (check out coeursports.com) wrote me and asked to write a blog on Memorial Day.  Of course the motto of Coeur is heart and courage.  At first I wasn’t sure which way to run with it.  Memorial Day conjures up so many meanings to me it can be difficult to nail down just one.  Memorial Day is for remembering the people who died while serving in our Armed Forces, which is the ultimate use of heart and courage.  When I was younger, it meant eating hamburgers and hotdogs and to celebrate the kick off of summer.  Obviously as a veteran, and one that is getting older at that, it holds a much greater meaning.  I started thinking about where I started my career, as a fresh out of high school showing up for R-Day at West Point.  I thought it would be fitting to memorialize my classmates no longer with us. It’s hard to describe the feeling when you actually start to personally know the people you are honoring. ...

IM Hawaii Race Report 2014

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  Doing my final pre-race ride. The narrow front and deeper rear wheel turned out to be the perfect combo in the wind! Photo by Tessa CapistranoI’ve always loved the Hawaii Ironman. After 10+ years in the sport, I still “buy into” all the hype on many levels.  And the race never disappoints. There is the usual carnage in the pro race. This year we had maybe 25 or 30 girls who could have finished in the Top 10. There was no room for error. Champions were brought down and others emerged.  It was epic. It always is. This is one of my fave pics of the day, Catriona and I in T1. Photo by witsup.comMy expectations going into the race were not huge. I have been around the block a few times and I know enough to know that a season that includes back-to-back Ironmans in May and a big win in August isn’t exactly a perfect set up for Kona. My expectation was simply to go out and do my thing one more time in 2014 fueled by a belief that anything can happen. On race...

Some thoughts before the big day

Thursday 09 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Final prep run on Ali'i Drive. Photo by www.tessacapistrano.ca It really has been one helluva year. My race season started with food poisoning in Monterrey Mexico which wiped out Ironman Los Cabos as well.  Though I know that “these things happen”, the setback hit me mentally harder than it should have. As a mom, I have made sacrifices that involve being away from my daughter and somehow, it seemed like too much. Kona became a distant dream and so I refocused on doing two Ironmans just one week apart in May with the completely unexpected result of bombing on the first one and winning the second one. This is when I really learned that if your head is the right place, anything really is possible. Because I had so many things stacked against me heading into IM Brasil (3 consecutive IM DNFs, tired legs from the week before, etc, etc…) I found it was best just to blank my mind and not think at all. Rather than try to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts, I just...

Preparing to fly again

Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Good to go at Calgary 70.3 After Ironman Brasil I was really looking forward to some rest. In the previous 8 weeks I had rallied from disappointment, raced 2 Ironmans 8 days apart and won the second one. It was really nice NOT to have a schedule for a couple weeks.  We decided to aim for Ironman Mont Tremblant as my next big race, the North American Ironman Championships. I have heard great things about racing in Tremblant and it would also give me an outside chance of qualifying for the World Champs in Hawaii. I wanted to do two 70.3 races in the lead up and so we chose Vineman and Calgary. This allowed me time for a 4-week training block to prepare for all this. Perfect.  So at the beginning of June, I set to work with the goal of gaining a few watts on the bike before August. Training went smoothly and I continued to benefit from Clint's swim group, including my fave session, our Friday morning swim at Thetis Lake. I did squats...

The Win, The Double and everything else

Saturday 31 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  The signs were there. They’ve been there for many months now. The signs in training that I was ready to have a really fast race. And it all came together in the most unexpected way. After the disappointment of Ironman Los Cabos in March, Clint and I went back to the drawing board to figure a few things out. I had a great training block in Tucson in April and a solid race at St. Croix 70.3. I wanted to try doing a “dirty double” again (I'd done one in 2011) largely because i thought I could do a better job than I did last time and because it was a challenge. In both training and racing I find that if I am feeling tired and unmotivated and don’t want to do a session, it often feels really good to actually make the session harder. That might sound counter-intuitive, but it works most of the time. I discovered this little trick about  4-5 years ago when I set out to do hill reps at the Observatory. I was supposed to do 4 repeats. On the way there, I was...

Muncie 70.3: An Indiana Win!

Saturday 14 Jul 2012 Kelly H Williamson (noreply@blogger.com)
Life is full of uncertainties. We can have the best plan of attack; and things may go right as planned for awhile. Then we hit a road bump; an unexpected detour. It’s natural to be frustrated, angry and ask questions. But it’s these times in life that force us to keep moving forward; prevent us from becoming complacent, and constantly motivate us to stay on our game and make us appreciate why we do what we do. At the time the road blocks suck, but in hindsight, think they’re an essential part of life. I headed to Muncie 70.3 with a fire in my belly. It was no secret that the previous race (Rev 3 Quassy) left me in the aforementioned state; confused, frustrated and with some discontent. Sure maybe I was not firing on all cylinders that day, but bottom line was I got it handed to me and I didn’t like it. That led Derick and I into talking about ‘what next’ before Muncie, and we decided upon my escaping Austin to ride my bike. The goal was open roads, lots of climbing and many miles....

Headed home.

Tuesday 09 Oct 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Aaron Farlow)
My final race in China two weeks ago was my last detour as I made my way back home after the Euro season.I left camp in Leysin 10 days earlier planning to squash an Iron distance race and double Olympic into the next two weekends. Things didn’t go perfect but I got through it and back home in one piece. Ready to have a bit of a break and get rid of some niggles that I have had lingering over the last few months.The Iron distance event was just off the coast of Singapore on a little island called Bintan. As expected it was hot and humid and being so close to the race in Hawaii there was only a small pro field.The conditions didn’t suit me but I thought it was worth a go, it had so many positive things going for it and was on my way home. My idea was that if I was struggling in the heat, just jog through the marathon and leave my legs fresh for the following week in China.The race started well and midway through the bike I joined one of my team mates. We worked well on the bike and came...

IRONMAN LAKE TAHOE & SILVERMAN 70.3 3rd PLACE

Tuesday 14 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Mackenzie Madison)
Not being able to race Ironman Lake Tahoe because of the smoke from the massive forest fire was a bummer. I can’t imagine how some of the age groupers felt- probably pretty let down. Thankfully my season so far as been pretty successful and I had just raced two Ironman’s previous to Tahoe so my season wasn’t completely reliant upon a success at Tahoe. I think deep down fate was telling me not to race Tahoe. I was pretty tired going into Tahoe. I really would’ve liked to see how my body would’ve responded to the challenge of racing three Ironman’s in 3 months. I know that I could’ve done well at Tahoe but it probably would’ve made me even more tired. The terrain was absolutely beautiful for Ironman Lake Tahoe. I’m really sad about not having another opportunity to race it as a professional. At least age groupers will have another opportunity to experience such an amazing and breathtaking racecourse. Liz Lyles and I riding up away from the smoke later on the day that Ironman Tahoe was...

CHALLENGE PENTICTON: 2ND PLACE

Friday 29 Aug 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Mackenzie Madison)
Challenge Penticton created a new and exciting “challenge” that I’ve never done before: doing an Ironman a little bit less than a month after the previous one. In this case the previous was Ironman Whistler. I decided the day after doing Whistler that I would most likely race Challenge Penticton. I probably decided I would race Challenge Penticton because I was craving another long distance triathlon already despite visiting a hurt box like no other. Plus, I like Canada … a lot. ;) Penticton holds a very special place in my heart. It was where I saw my first Ironman distance race. My father was competing and I was 14. I remember writing his number in chalk everywhere and “KA” because “kick ass” wasn’t really ok to write on the sidewalk just yet. Flash forward a decade to 2010 I was back in Penticton to compete in my first Ironman and go on to place 3rd overall to Meredith Kessler and Heather Wurtele respectively. It was at that race that I discovered my passion for going long. I came...

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...

HONU 70.3 Race Report: RACE UPDATE!

Wednesday 04 Jun 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Mackenzie Madison)
Aloha! This past weekend I got to compete in an epic race- Honu 70.3 on the Big Island of Hawaii. It was my first time actually racing here instead of running along the lava fields or swimming in the ocean. I got very close to racing in Kona for the Ironman World Championships after qualifying as a professional triathlete in 2010 after my first Ironman. But since I was low on Ironman race experience, I choose to wait to race until I was ready to race in Kona. I have had Honu 70.3 on my race calendar for several years, but plans had always ended up changing thus leading me to other races instead. This year, I was totally pumped to race though, as I was healthy and strong again. Racing St.George 70.3 in the beginning of May proved to me that I was in the right place and that I was ready to rock n’ roll.Hawaii was great. I was enjoying being on the Big Island again. However I started feeling off once we started our flight from the mainland. I started feeling sick and nauseous. I knew that...

A Letter To Ironman Texas

Thursday 21 May 2015 Bigsexy

Time flies - off to Europe

Friday 15 Jun 2012 Noreply@blogger.com (Keegan Williams)
Well the past month has flown by, I have had my head down working hard getting fit for Challenge Roth in a couple of weeks time. I cant wait to get back, we have a super home stay and race day was cranking last year with the crowds and atmosphere. Check out some photos below of last year.This time Tracy and Ava are coming, fingers crossed the flights go well and Ava decides to sleep alot :) she likes to crawl around and investigate everything now so we might have our hands full.Other news, Candice had a breakthrough run last weekend in Ironman Cairns and ran her self up to 3rd place only 3min from the win. Now I just have to install some more confidence in her and she will be on the top of the podium in the future. It just confirmed to me that Ironman racing is largely a mental battle and if you loose concentration or worry about what has gone on in the past you can loose a lot of time.

HyVee Triathlon

Tuesday 20 Sep 2011 Noreply@blogger.com (Christine Jeffrey)
Hanging out here in beautiful Park City getting used to the altitude ahead of the Xterra USA Nationals next weekend and finally have some time to put together my race report for the HyVee Triathlon a couple of weekends ago.  I skipped over Xterra Beavercreek as there was really nothing to say about it.  I made it through the race but that was about it.  I did have a great ride the day after on the Leadville course with Brian and Jenny Smith, and a scenic drive home so will posts some pictures of that in the next post.   After Beavercreek the body was done, like really really done.  I stopped in Durango for lunch on the drive home and had to use my arms to swing my legs around and host myself up out of the car.  Then I barely was able to hobble into Subway to grab a sandwich.  A week off was absolutely necessary.  Not really ideal for the timing of HyVee but there wasn't any other way.  On top of that my achilles decided it didn't like...

Challenge Rimini Half - 6th

Sunday 11 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
I just finished the Challenge Rimini Half here on the beautiful Adriatic coast in Italy. I raced the world junior duathlon champs here in 2001 and I was hoping to relive the magic from 13 years ago but I will have to settle for another 6th place finish after a tough closing 10km of the run where everything seemed to fall to pieces pretty badly. It may have been all the travel and crossing time zones but I felt great through to the half way point on the run so I am going to put it down to the epic crash I managed to get myself in at the 45km mark on the bike. The road rash on my arm was not too bad but it wasn't until after the race that I managed to assess the damage to my hip and there was some pretty good damage. It has been a great week here in Rimini and I have really enjoyed the change in pace. It seems Italy time is a lot like "island time" and when it comes to meals this place is off the chart. I love good food and there has been plenty of it the past few days, but I have...

Ironman 70.3 St. George - 6th

Sunday 04 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Ironman 70.3 St. George race in UTAH, it doubled up as the US Pro championships and was my first race of the Northern hemisphere season. Only being back into training the past 6 weeks from a small recovery period after Kelloggs Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ my goal going into the race was to test the body, see where the fitness was and test that against most of the best athletes in the world. All in all it was a very tough day but I am please to walk away after a solid race finishing in 6th Place. This was my first trip to UTAH and to be honest I wasn't sure what to expect coming in, but the truth is St. George has such amazing scenery and very friendly people I will definitely be coming back and exploring the area a little more.The course has to be one of the toughest I have ever competed on, add to the course the stellar field and the slight altitude of the area it was sure to be a hard hard day at the office. My feel in the water has been good plus I had a brand...

Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Ironman NZ - 3rd

Monday 03 Mar 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
This weekend was the Kellogg’s Nutri-Grain New Zealand Ironman down in Taupo. It was a very tough day but I am pleased with my 3rd place finish behind Marko Albert and Cam Brown. It was also a great way to mark the end of my Pre Season base training and put to rest some monsters that have been hiding in my Ironman closet.Taupo put on a superb week with great weather leading into and on race day. I was happy with where my fitness was across all 3 disciplines and I was looking forward to testing the waters and seeing how far I had come since my last Ironman finish in 2011. Marko set a fast start to the 3.8km swim and soon a small group of us had a break. We quickly navigated through the waters to come out with a 2 minute lead over the chase pack which included Cam Brown.  Last years winner, Bevan Docherty along with several strong bikers made up the front group and I was sure we would work well together to slowly build our lead over the 180km, 2 lap bike course....

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Monday 23 Dec 2013 Noreply@blogger.com (TERENZO BOZZONE)
Hi all,Just a quick note to wish you and your families all a very Merry Christmas and the happiest of festive seasons!I hope that we all finish off 2013 pleased with how things have gone and ready to keep moving forward after the haze settles in the new year. Timing of my off season was very unfortunate as I started back in heavy training last week, but thankfully my coach Jon Ackland has found it in his heart to give me a few easy days which I will be enjoying with my family between Waiheke Island and Auckland. Early in the New Year I will be racing the Auckland 70.3, this race also doubles as the Asia Pacific Pro Championships. Unfortunately due to the car door incident at the beginning of this year I was unable to be on the start line for the inaugural race but I am determined to make up for it. Then at the beginning of March I will be returning to Nutri-Grain Ironman New Zealand in Taupo. This will be the extent of my New Zealand racing for this season and I am looking...

Ben Hoffman, Don’t Mess with Texas

Friday 22 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

It’s not often, especially in recent times, that I sit down to compose an Ironman race recap where I have been completely humbled and disappointed. There were some pretty poor races in Kona earlier in my career, but I’ve been very consistent in my ability to prepare properly and execute well over the past few years of racing. more

This Saturday marks the 24th edition of the prestigious IRONMAN Lanzarote, held in the Canary Islands and is famous for being one of the toughest courses on the global IRONMAN circuit.

Thursday 21 May 2015 [Triathlon News]

Dear Ironman Texas, I wanted to write you this letter and talk about our relationship! When we first started courting, I had so many high hopes for what we would be able to have in terms of a relationship. Things started off very rocky in year one, but I knew deep in my heart we would be able to make it work. After some long talks, year two of our relationship was solid, more

Degasperi, Riesler Victorious At Ironman Lanzarote

Saturday 23 May 2015 Liz Hichens
Italy’s Alessandro Degasperi and Germany’s Diana Riesler claimed the victories at one of the toughest long-course triathlons on the planet today in the Canary Islands. Degasperi took the Ironman Lanzarote win in 8:56:49 with a 51:10 swim, a 5:12:12 bike and a 2:47:15 marathon. Germany’s Christian Kramer was second in 8:59:31, with Switzerland’s Mauro Baertsch getting third at 9:04:46. Riesler dominated the women’s race, thanks in large part to a stellar 5:37:11 bike split. She book-ended that cycling effort with a 55:40 swim and a 3:16:20 marathon, giving her the 9:56:04 win. Austria’s Michi Herlbauer got the runner-up spot in 10:13:50. Great Britain’s Caroline Livesey rounded out the podium in 10:31:57. Ironman Lanzarote Lanzarote, Canary Islands, Spain – May 23, 2015 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike, 26.2-mile run Men 1.

Ironman Lanzarote 2015 – Analyzing Results

Saturday 23 May 2015 Thorsten
Race Conditions With a course rating of -12:47, Lanzarote is a very slow course  – but this year it was even slower: Strong winds led to a bike adjustment of -31:21, the second slowest only to the “legendary” bike leg of the last IM St. George in 2012. Not only did this lead to slow bike times, but also to a pretty high number of DNFs (42% for the men, 21% for the women Pros). Male Race Results Christian Kramer was leading the race for a long time and with a 5:05 had the best bike leg and had a solid sub-3 marathon. But in his second Ironman, Italian Alessandro Degasperi had a great 2:47:15 run and took the lead 3k from the finish. Third place went to Mauro Baertsch who was able to beat his expected time by almost 30 minutes.

Swim Healthy: Avoid These 4 Annoying Pool Issues

Friday 22 May 2015 Jené Shaw
Photo: Shutterstock.comChlorine kills a lot of bad stuff, but frequent swim training can still pose some pesky health concerns. Don’t let one of these issues get in the way of your next swim session. Swimmer’s ear Water left lingering in your ear after swimming could lead to an infection in the outer canal. Prevent it: Swim with earplugs and rinse out ears with a product such as Swim-Ear ($5.81, Amazon.com) that kills germs and evaporates water. Treat it: There are lots of quirky home remedies—from laying your head on a sock filled with salt to rinsing your ear with garlic oil—but the quickest relief is prescription drops from a doctor. RELATED: 5 Steps To Prevent Ear Infections Hair damage Pool chemicals can be harsh on your locks, making them more susceptible to breakage. Prevent it: Wet your hair before you get in the pool, and wear a swim cap. Your hair is less likely to absorb chlorine if it’s already wet. Treat it: Wash your hair post-swim with a shampoo/conditioner with...

Memorial Day

Friday 22 May 2015 Jessica Meyers (noreply@blogger.com)
My incredible sponsor Coeur Sports (check out coeursports.com) wrote me and asked to write a blog on Memorial Day.  Of course the motto of Coeur is heart and courage.  At first I wasn’t sure which way to run with it.  Memorial Day conjures up so many meanings to me it can be difficult to nail down just one.  Memorial Day is for remembering the people who died while serving in our Armed Forces, which is the ultimate use of heart and courage.  When I was younger, it meant eating hamburgers and hotdogs and to celebrate the kick off of summer.  Obviously as a veteran, and one that is getting older at that, it holds a much greater meaning.  I started thinking about where I started my career, as a fresh out of high school showing up for R-Day at West Point.  I thought it would be fitting to memorialize my classmates no longer with us. It’s hard to describe the feeling when you actually start to personally know the people you are honoring. ...

IM Hawaii Race Report 2014

Tuesday 28 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  Doing my final pre-race ride. The narrow front and deeper rear wheel turned out to be the perfect combo in the wind! Photo by Tessa CapistranoI’ve always loved the Hawaii Ironman. After 10+ years in the sport, I still “buy into” all the hype on many levels.  And the race never disappoints. There is the usual carnage in the pro race. This year we had maybe 25 or 30 girls who could have finished in the Top 10. There was no room for error. Champions were brought down and others emerged.  It was epic. It always is. This is one of my fave pics of the day, Catriona and I in T1. Photo by witsup.comMy expectations going into the race were not huge. I have been around the block a few times and I know enough to know that a season that includes back-to-back Ironmans in May and a big win in August isn’t exactly a perfect set up for Kona. My expectation was simply to go out and do my thing one more time in 2014 fueled by a belief that anything can happen. On race...

Some thoughts before the big day

Thursday 09 Oct 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Final prep run on Ali'i Drive. Photo by www.tessacapistrano.ca It really has been one helluva year. My race season started with food poisoning in Monterrey Mexico which wiped out Ironman Los Cabos as well.  Though I know that “these things happen”, the setback hit me mentally harder than it should have. As a mom, I have made sacrifices that involve being away from my daughter and somehow, it seemed like too much. Kona became a distant dream and so I refocused on doing two Ironmans just one week apart in May with the completely unexpected result of bombing on the first one and winning the second one. This is when I really learned that if your head is the right place, anything really is possible. Because I had so many things stacked against me heading into IM Brasil (3 consecutive IM DNFs, tired legs from the week before, etc, etc…) I found it was best just to blank my mind and not think at all. Rather than try to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts, I just...

Preparing to fly again

Wednesday 13 Aug 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
Good to go at Calgary 70.3 After Ironman Brasil I was really looking forward to some rest. In the previous 8 weeks I had rallied from disappointment, raced 2 Ironmans 8 days apart and won the second one. It was really nice NOT to have a schedule for a couple weeks.  We decided to aim for Ironman Mont Tremblant as my next big race, the North American Ironman Championships. I have heard great things about racing in Tremblant and it would also give me an outside chance of qualifying for the World Champs in Hawaii. I wanted to do two 70.3 races in the lead up and so we chose Vineman and Calgary. This allowed me time for a 4-week training block to prepare for all this. Perfect.  So at the beginning of June, I set to work with the goal of gaining a few watts on the bike before August. Training went smoothly and I continued to benefit from Clint's swim group, including my fave session, our Friday morning swim at Thetis Lake. I did squats...

The Win, The Double and everything else

Saturday 31 May 2014 Noreply@blogger.com (Sara Gross)
  The signs were there. They’ve been there for many months now. The signs in training that I was ready to have a really fast race. And it all came together in the most unexpected way. After the disappointment of Ironman Los Cabos in March, Clint and I went back to the drawing board to figure a few things out. I had a great training block in Tucson in April and a solid race at St. Croix 70.3. I wanted to try doing a “dirty double” again (I'd done one in 2011) largely because i thought I could do a better job than I did last time and because it was a challenge. In both training and racing I find that if I am feeling tired and unmotivated and don’t want to do a session, it often feels really good to actually make the session harder. That might sound counter-intuitive, but it works most of the time. I discovered this little trick about  4-5 years ago when I set out to do hill reps at the Observatory. I was supposed to do 4 repeats. On the way there, I was...
