Ironman New Zealand

Date: Saturday 07 March 2015 Add To Calendar
Location: Taupo (New Zealand)

It is the oldest qualifying race on the Ironman circuit, having started 22 years ago, and seems to get bigger and better all the time. Bonita Ironman New Zealand takes place in the beautiful resort destination of Taupo, which is about three hours drive south of Auckland, and it's hard to imagine a race that could offer much more to its competitors. The swim course in the beautiful, clear, waters of Lake Taupo is a one loop affair around a rectangular course, which, if the water is calm, is laid out nicely for a fast first leg of the day. Once out of the water, the athletes run past the Lake Taupo Yacht Club to T1, and then start the bike course by riding along the lake next to where they just finished swimming. The initial few kilometers are flat, but a quick left turn takes the athletes up a hill that is a precursor of the fun to come. The beautiful two-lap run course follows Lake Taupo down to Five Mile Bay and then returns back to town. The course could be described as "rolling," although there are a few good hills to be negotiated along the way.

She says the defence of her IRONMAN 70.3 world title in Mont-Tremblant is her priority. more

Easy Ways To Prepare Fresh Fish

Tuesday 15 Apr 2014 Lauren Antonucci
Photo: iStockQ: What’s the best way to prepare fresh fish that is fairly easy, too? A: Fish is one of the easiest things to cook well—it generally needs little prep work and requires only a short cooking time. Go to your nearest fish market and ask for their freshest, thin white fish (such as tilapia, blackfish, flounder or cod). To prepare, lay the fish on a large plate, brush lightly with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper. Then simply bake it in a lightly oiled, deep, oven-safe dish at 350 degrees for 5 minutes per side, or cook on a lightly oiled grill for 5 minutes per side. Also, consider scallops. The key is to buy large, fresh scallops and avoid overcooking so they’re not rubbbery. Coat scallops lightly with olive oil, salt and pepper, then thread onto skewers (flat side down) and grill on high for 4 minutes per side. Or sauté the scallops in a hot skillet, 4–5 minutes per side for 1-inch-thick scallops. They pair well with sautéed spinach and pasta. Lauren Antonucci,...

Race Mode

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

70.3 San Juan Champion – AGAIN!

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

A few words in support of Frank Guinn and Andrew Powell

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

Travel with Valentine Lovato

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