Integrity, Sportsmanship, Courage in Triathlon

Saturday, August 6, 2016 by Coach Kristen

As adult triathletes, we can still learn a lot from the kids that participate in this sport. I want to tell you a little story about a kid I know. It’s a story about being honest, having integrity, promoting sportsmanship, but most of all exuding courage. It’s something we should all strive for…we should all want to be like him.



How to Avoid Burn Out

Tuesday, June 21, 2016 by Coach Denise

I’ve always had a “if some is good, then more is better” attitude. While fun, this has not always served me well. I did my first Ironman in 2011 and enjoyed it so much that I proceeded to do another one the following year and then another one the year after that. While fun, that […]



Seven Habits of Highly Successful Triathletes

Sunday, February 21, 2016 by Coach Tommy

A long time ago, during the ‘80s, in a galaxy far, far away, I read a book titled The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey.  This book changed the way I managed my personal and professional life.  I still use many of the concepts in that book.  In fact, I still use […]



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. I’ve had surgery and even cutting-edge treatments where they took bone marrow from my hip, extracted the stem cells and stuck them into my […]

Wednesday, April 15, 2015 by Coach Denise

I often tell athletes that my job would be easy if the same nutrition plan worked for everyone. Unfortunately, nutrition is unique to the individual, and what works for one person doesn’t necessarily work for another. Everyone has about 2000 calories of stored glycogen in their muscles. How quickly you burn through that glycogen is […]



Rinny, Angry Bird and The 4th Discipline of Triathlon

Friday, October 17, 2014 by Coach Tommy

I watched the 2014 Ironman World Championship on Saturday. I sat in front of my computer for about 9 hours. The women’s race was especially exciting. Mirinda “Rinny” Carfrae came from 14:30 down out of T2 to win her 3rd World Championship. Rinny eventually caught and passed Daniela “Angry Bird” Ryf at about mile 23 […]



When to throw in the towel

Sunday, August 24, 2014 by admin

Recently, I finished my 6th Ironman race at Ironman Texas. I had lots of friends racing, even my coach and an athlete that I coach. I personally had a very solid training block for this Ironman. I hit my key workouts. I had some monster swim weeks, 20k in one week, multiple 5hr rides and […]



Cary Emmons Race Report – IMKS 70.3 2014

Sunday, July 20, 2014 by administrator

This was a well organized, well sponsored, well run race as I expected it would be. The venue was great…scenic, fairly easy to get in and out of, and tons of volunteer support. The swim course was great. The part I liked best was how many buoys they had out there lining the course. If […]
