Run Faster

Triathlon Magazine Canada asked me to write a little article about running, and a poorly edited version of it was published in the most recent edition (Sept-Oct 2014). This may sound a bit harsh, and I really don't want to complain because I appreciate being able to contribute to the magazine, but the pdf I was sent by Saucony was painful for me to read. I do not claim to be a writer, but I do take pride in my work and, at the very least, I try to catch glaring errors with a careful proof-read before I publish anything on our blog.

Ironman Coeur d'Alene 2014 - Heather's Race Report

Memory is an imperfect thing, and the ways in which we create our own histories have always interested me. My parents used to stress the subjectivity of experience to break up arguments between my brother and I as kids "there are 3 sides to every story, yours, his and the truth".  Wait, what the heck is she talking about, this is supposed to be a race report?!

Trev's power file from New Orleans 70.3 2014

For those that are interested, here's a quick peek at my power data from New Orleans 70.3 last weekend.  I had my best ever ride time in a half Ironman - 2 hrs 3 min and change.  Even so, it was not my best ever avg power over that distance.  There were sections, however, that I did indeed ride too hard trying to reel in the leader.  I figured that was my best shot at the win, so went for it.  Didn't quite work out, with my worst run in years, but did manage to hang on for 3rd.
