There Is Always More To Learn by Coach Judie

On Sunday morning I waited mid-pack for the start of my fifth marathon.  I had gone over my whole race plan with Coach Joe on Thursday and kept reviewing it Friday, Saturday, and Sunday morning.  I was ready and anxious to get this one going.

The response I get from a lot of people is that because this is my fifth marathon I should know what I'm doing, this should be nothing new for me, no surprises.  Actually, nothing could be further from the truth.  If you've done more than 2 or 3 of any type of race, or enough to get beyond "I just hope to complete the distance," you start to figure out how much more there really is to learn.  MORE 


Settling The Score At Galena by Jim L.

Wow!  What a race weekend.  Galena is such a beautiful area.  The drive in from Chicago is so cool as you start to feel the hills getting bigger and bigger as you get closer.  This was a big race for me.  My first ever triathlon was in Galena in 2008, and I came back again in 2009, and I must say, this course owned me both times.  Now it was time to come back, prepared and ready to settle the old score!!  I felt great heading into the weekend and was so excited about doing this race with all of the awesome teammates that we have.  Even the night before hanging out with Jason and Zeb (a newbie who I must say is now hooked :) ) and just talking about the sport was awesome.  MORE
