Seven Habits of Highly Successful Triathletes

Sunday, February 21, 2016 by Coach Tommy

Make a Comeback

Wednesday, November 11, 2015 by Coach Denise

I have appointed myself the queen of the comeback. I’ve had more injuries than I can even count. I’ve had broken bones and expensive pieces of metal put in my back.

Random Things Triathletes Think About

Saturday, April 12, 2014 by Coach Kristen

If you are anything like me in this wonderful world of triathlon, you have a TON of time spent talking to yourself.  Lots of hours in the pool, or pounding the pavement, listening to the thoughts rattling around in your own head.  Kind of like the Sh*t Triathlete’s Say Youtube video, I decided there could […]



Morning Person Habits

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 by admin

The dreaded time change. I am not a fan of this country’s policy for daylight savings times. It always feels like you leave work at 10pm even though it is 5:30. There are some benefits, like the extra daylight in the early morning hours. I know what you are thinking to yourself, I am not […]
