HOW TO HANDLE ALL THE TOGETHERNESS IN NON-TRIATHLON GETAWAYS

In the space of a month, David and I have had two non-triathlon getaways.

If you’ve been a trisupporter of a triathlete for any length of time, you’ve probably experienced this scenario at least once on race day: You’ve been good and planned ahead with your triathlete what time they expect to complete the bike segment.

THE CLEAN BOTTLE: WATER OR VODKA, IT’S ALL GOOD!

So, this is how the story goes. A friend sends me this super cool water bottle to check out since I travel so much and I’m a little “green” as in environmentally concerned. Green, in this case, means my whole family always travels with water bottles to fill up. But, lately I was complaining about the filtering process and wanting cleaner water. So, that’s when…

HOW TO MANAGE TRIATHLON TRAINING WITH A PRESCHOOLER

Ever wonder how you’re going to make it thorough triathlon training with that preschool child asking you so many questions? Granted, some of the questions are asked by adult non-triathletes, too, like…How much longer do you have to be on your bike? Why are you grunting? Why do you wear such funny clothes?
