Nationals: a Proud and Humbling Journey by Jim R.
Jim at Nationals

Journeys tend to lead you to places you expected, planned, and hoped for, but sometimes they lead you to places you never expected. The latter happened to me last week when my journey led me to the USAT Age Group Nationals to compete against the best in the country. I mean, it's impossible to plan for something you didn't know existed two months ago.  MORE


Seaweed, Hills, and Tenacity by Amanda L.
Amanda at Bangs Tri

When I'm talking to my friends, I sometimes forget that they aren't fellow triathletes, which is why I was frequently asked about my presumed "Olympic career" each time I gushed on and on about my first Olympic-distance tri.  I was nervous, there's no denying that.  Having taken a three-week trip to Tanzania and returning less than four weeks before the big day, I knew I had a big challenge ahead of me.  MORE 


The Big Stage by Jeff P.
Jeff at Nationals

Recently, I had the opportunity to participate in the USAT Age Group National Championship in Burlington, VT.  Getting to this event began last year as I finished up my Ironman journey and met with Coach Joe to discuss what my goals were for the 2011 training and race season.  I knew I wanted to go with shorter distance triathlons and take a break for a year from half irons or full iron distances.  My body and mind was in need of a break from the rigors of many long training days.   MORE

Reinventing our Cycling Style to make way for improved performance by Coach Sarah
Coach Sarah 2

One of the best parts of cycling is that we never truly reach perfection.  If we are lucky, we might experience one race where we feel like we've come darn close, but there is always room to improve.  However, it's a balancing act, because if we beat ourselves up too much for not reaching perfection, we may in turn paralyze ourselves from getting any better.  MORE

Ironman Wisconsin Recap

Howard on Timber Lane

The Ironman. Considered to be the most challenging endurance event in the world and one of life's greatest experiences. The event and the multi-year journey toward Mount Ironman changes both athletes and spectators forever. It is an accomplishment that spills over into every aspect of your life. It has a major effect on your family, friends, and complete strangers who come to cheer for other racers. Nobody is ever the same after the Ironman experience.

On September 11, 2011, we were humbled again as we cheered on our athletes at Ironman Wisconsin.  Click here to enjoy the photos from our day in Madison.
