    MelS Melissa Spooner on Ironman Nutrition
    Ironman Champ to Talk Ironman Fuel

    Most people think completing an Ironman is an amazing feat. What most people don?t realize is that completing an Ironman without bonking (running out of fuel), bloating (consuming too many calories), or even vomiting is much harder than crossing the finish line before midnight.

    Three-time Ironman champion and nutritionist Melissa Spooner will be at Triple Sports to talk about ultra- distance nutrition from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 15. The event is $10 All entry fees will be donated to the Crohn?s and Colitis Foundation of America.

    For the 2,000 or more athletes who participate in April?s Ironman Arizona event in Tempe, how well they complete the 2.4-mile swim, 112-mile bike and 26.2-mile run will depend on more than just physical fitness. It will depend on whether or not they managed to fuel their body properly during the 9- to 17-hour event.

    Getting nutrition right is crucial, but it?s also challenging. Most Ironman athletes will burn 10,000 to 20,000 calories over the course of the event. Replacing all of those calories isn?t feasible. Figuring out how many to replace ? and how to replace them ? is the tricky part. Athletes typically spend hundreds of dollars finding the right fuel for their needs.

    ?What you eat during an Ironman can make or break your race,? says Triple Sports co-owner Kara Anderson, who is training for her second Ironman. ?Eat too much, and you get sick. Don?t eat enough, and you run out of energy. It?s a delicate balance.?

    Champion Triple Sports Diva Nite
    The Right Sports Bra ? It?s More Important than You Think

    Sports bras seem simple enough, but for a lot of women, finding the perfect fit can be like finding the perfect pair of jeans ? nearly impossible. From bras that smash to bras that simply don?t support, many women have endured the discomfort of a poorly fitting sports bra.

    ?A lot of women end up in a bra that simply isn?t designed for their cup size,? said Kristi Kidwell, of Champion Athleticwear. ?And that?s what we want to prevent by teaching women what bras are right for them.?

    Triple Sports is joining forces with Champion Athleticwear to offer the Valley?s first-ever Diva Nite, a free bra-fit clinic for women that will include expert bra fitting, along with wine, cheese, a Champion sports bra raffle and other Diva goodies. The event takes place from 6 to 9 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 29 at Triple Sports, 4032 N. Miller Rd., in Scottsdale. Champion sports bras also will be discounted 25% for participants.

    Research has shown that up to 50 percent of women experience breast pain while exercising. Finding the right sports bra that offers an appropriate amount of support can ease the pain as well as reduce the irreversible stretching of ligaments, which causes the breasts to sag.

    ?A sport bra needs to fit correctly in order to provide support, eliminate digging and chaffing,? said Kidwell. ?Determining the correct bra size and style category is much like the process for determining an appropriate running shoe. Often women don't really know their correct bra size or even realize there are several bra options available that will allow them the comfort and support to train without pain and irritation.?

    According to Kidwell, the most common bra fit issues are: 1) Lack of support leading to the ?double bra.? Women should need only one bra. 2) Chafing and or digging from the band or the straps 3) Incorrect cup size causing spillage over the top and sides of the bra

    Congrats from Triple Sports!

    Lots of you completed big goals this fall, and we'd like to offer our biggest congratulations. We can't give a full list, but here are some noteables:

    Arizona's own Katie Ellis rocked at the Ironman World Championships in Kona, coming in 3rd in her age group. Rick Klaeser finished his first triathlon at the El Dorado Sprint Triathlon Oct. 29. Adam Memrow and Jayson Stangel completed their first Ironman at Ironman Florida on Nov. 3, as did Kim and Robin Lorenz. They all kicked butt, too! Denise Gibbons did her first triathlon in October, as did Brent Snider. Congrats, too, to Russel Sepulveda and Nicole Pondell for two tris in two months! Awesome job everyone!
