Timberman 70.3 Race Report - a win for Heather

I am very happy to have taken home my first 70.3 win. “It’s about time” as my rather frank loved ones would say :) I’ve won 1/2 iron distance events before, and I’ve done A LOT of Ironman branded 70.3s, but the big W has eluded me until now. YAY for the 2012 Timberman 70.3!

Ironman New York City - Trev's Race Rundown

I must be the only one that thinks IMNYC was a cool race. For sure there are some major improvements needed, but man, lots of people ripping on the race for the same reasons I would go back.

Fail - Heather's Ironman Coeur d'Alene disqualification

Well, yesterday SUCKED. I’m sure you’ve heard snippets from the twitter-verse, slowtwitch etc. but I wanted to give you the run down as it really happened.

Sort version:

I was pulled out of IM Coeur d’Alene at mile 21 of the run (while in 2nd) b/c I rode another athlete’s wee bike back to T2 after my crank arm fell off and I couldn’t get any assistance.

Rev3 Quassy 2012 - Heather's 2nd place race report

Rather than the boring old play-by-play, this race report is going to be a little session of fact vs. fiction.

Fiction: Pro triathletes jet-set around the country and stay in fancy places to do fancy races while their entourage of personal chefs, massage therapists, and psychic readers take care of them.

Fact: Most pro triathletes fly coach on planes with the cheapest bike fees. The generosity of homestay families make travelling across the country to race possible.

How to ride your bike in a wetsuit - Boise 70.3 Race Report

A week late on this. We’ve been quite busy. Busy enough that Heather even had to skip her TTTT post. After the race in Boise I drove back to The Triathlon Squad camp for a couple days in Saint George. Smashed myself back into fatigue zone while packing up to leave for a couple months. Heather and I then drove up to Coeur d’Alene where she’s racing the Ironman on the 24th. Finally, one week later we’ve got an evening on the computer. Ahhhhh, life is normal again. :)
