Brownlees gunning for gold on home turf

Challenge Regensburg to open for entries

Friday 29 May 2015 Paul Moore
On 1 June 2015 the official start of registration for CHALLENGEREGENSBURG 2016 will kick-off. The interest towards the long-distance event in Bavaria, Germany, is already enormous. Several hundred athletes have pre-registered within the past four weeks. All looking forward to 14 August 2016 when the starting signal will sound at Lake Guggenberger, the athletes will bike 180km through the beautiful landscape of district Regensburg and run a marathon in the heart of the World Heritage City of Regensburg. The finish in front of the impressive cathedral will surely be the highlight of the day. It’s not only the high number of pre-registrations that show the huge response to the announcement of CHALLENGEREGENSBURG. The first on-course training sessions have also been a huge success. “On Whit-Monday, almost 100 athletes of all ages and levels joined to our guided tour over the bike course. This absolutely exceeded our expectations,” said race organizer Tom Tajsich. Even...

Pro Diary – Kelly Williamson via IM Texas

Friday 29 May 2015 Admin
Words: Kelly Williamson : @khwilliamson I’ve never quite understood it when people say they are “going to defend their title” upon returning to a race as the previous year’s winner. It seems more appropriate “I’m going with the goal of defending my title.” So when many asked me if I was ‘going to Ironman Texas to defend’, I guess I just saw it differently. The goal was, as with any race, go out and execute the absolute best of my ability; if that landed me on top, all the better. But I’ve often found it dangerous to become too focused on the top step of a podium, especially in an event such as Ironman, with so many variables that come into play. Becoming too fixated on a ‘title defense’ to me just seems misguided. While I found it a huge honor to return to The Woodlands after last year’s race, I knew that wouldn’t make the task of a similar performance any easier. I’ve often said, resumes don’t matter when we toe the start line; it’s about focus, preparation, execution, and how much...

Caveman interview with TRS Radio

Friday 29 May 2015 Conrad
conrad stoltz caveman hunting and gathering roadkill Caveman talks hunting & gathering on TRS radio. When this was recorded,  IM Kona, Oct  2014, @TheRealStarky was a only parody twitter account, and “The Real Starky” was still under cover. Being quite controversial and loose mouthed on twitter, it was intimidating sitting down for a podcast with TRS.  However, once we met over beers,  “Ben” turned out to be a baby faced nice guy, but also seriously sharp and curious.  a “Sheep in wolves clothes” I called him. Dark Mark was a little shy, but I think we both had a bit of a man crush on each other. See, the humorous @_Dark_Mark twitter feed is my favourite toilet reading material. Without further ado, here’s the interview: Fri, 10 October 2014 Episode 5: Conrad Stoltz, 7X World Champion in Off-road Triathlon “A long talk with a legend. Conrad sat down with us at the Huub house  in Kona and talked to about his career, killing a baboon with his bare hands and eating road kill. Listen in...

tougher times

Thursday 28 May 2015
Picture I suffered quite badly with stomach issues after the race in Fuerteventura (and sore legs but I blame Corinne for that), I presumed that it was just because of the hard hot race and the nutrition I had used but the problem didn't clear up and it got worse over the following week. I had planned France 70.3 and desperately wanted to race but by Wednesday I had to spend the whole day I bed and wasn't able to move with what was apparently a stomach infection. I tried to do some light training but it was hopeless as I was unable to even run easy for 10 minutes without being completely out of breath and dripping with sweat! I decided to stay in bed and rest with the hope that I could start the race. Deep down I knew I shouldn't have started but it's hard not to when you are there and desperately wanting to race. We drove to the race start and hid the car keys as I planned to do 30-40k of the bike and then spin back for the car. I felt shocking in the swim but actually swam ok so decided to...

challenge fuerteventura

Thursday 28 May 2015
Picture Challenge Fuerteventrua at Playitas Resort was the season starter again for me this year. It's a very tough course and always attracts a top class tough field so it's the perfect opportunity to kick off the season with a true test to see where you are. I was lucky enough to be able to train at Playitas before the race and it was a real luxury not to have to travel at all to race. This year the female field was stacked as usual with many current and former World and European champions on the start list. I felt a bit out of place at the press conference amongst the big guns but I was a real honour to be there beside them. My aim for the race was to go hard and to try to hit the podium which I knew wouldn't be easy.  Usually the male and female pros start together which is a very unfair start to the race (especially for weaker swimmers ) so at the race briefing I asked for a separate start and the organisers agreed instantly which was really great to see. They gave us a 2...

"Head full of doubt, road full of promise"

Tuesday 26 May 2015 Noreply@blogger.com (Jennie Hansen)
  Here's the thing about comebacks, if that's what we want to call them.  They're not the nice, clean, linear journey back up to glory that we think they should be.  You get knocked down, you think that you've paid your dues to karma, the universe, whatever it is, and that it's going to be a steady trip up back above where you've started as long as you put in your time, and do your work.  But that's not true.  One bad thing happening doesn't automatically build up immunities to other setbacks.  It's like a long climb on a ride, when you're not sure where the top is, and you're not quite sure if you're ever even going to make it there.  Sometimes, the road dips back down again, and while it's a momentary relief, deep down you're cursing it, because it's just taking you further away from where you want to be.  But, the steepest, hardest, most challenging portions are the ones that pack the most punch in getting you there.   Anyways, this...
