Events & Schedule Updates

I've added some events to the 2009 calendar (viewable in the RSS Calendar in the right sidebar).

February 1: The Freeze Your Buns Run, a local 5K in Hamel, MN.

March 8: I just signed up for my first indoor triathlon event. This will be at my local club, Life Time Fitness. The 2009 series is now posted. Various Life Time Fitness locations in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Carolina, Ohio, Texas, Utah and Virginia will be hosting indoor events February 8, 2009 - August 23, 2009. Just check your state to see if there is an event in your area. You do not have to be a member to race. More information from their site:

Start times are staggered. Each participant receives a unique start time prior to the race.

We will email your wave start time and the official race format and rules the week of the race.

First Wave 7:00 AM

Course Information
The Indoor Triathlon is based on time (60 minutes of racing for each competitor) unlike an outdoor triathlon based on distance.

Participants are allowed times for safe transition between race legs. Transitions don’t count toward the 60 minutes of racing time.
10-minute swim in lap pool
10-minute transition (swim to bike)
30-minute bike in cycle fitness studio
5-minute transition (bike to run)
20-minute treadmill run

Performance is measured by total distance covered in the time allowed. The more distance you cover, the higher your score.

Race volunteers keep track of distances on behalf of each participant in each event.

March 26 - April 2: Relaxing and training in Scottsdale, Arizona. Ahhhhhh, sun!
