SUPPORTING YOUR TRIATHLETE AFTER A DNF

It was bound to happen at some point.  After doing close to 20 full Ironman races, the odds are stacking against you.  They say pretty much every triathlete encounters this during their “career”, including most pros.  It’s just part of the sport.  To what am I referring?  Ugh…The DNF…. Well, it happened to my trihubby at Ironman Arizona.  He had a really good swim, was…

IRONMAN COZUMEL – FOOD, FUN, & SPECTATING

None of us have ever been to Ironman Cozumel, but with the race coming up on November 30, we wanted to get you some information if you’re going.  One of our readers, Nanci Hulting, was kind enough to provide us with some travel, food, fun, and spectating tips from when her husband did the race in 2012.  For your information, it is a one-loop swim, a…

CRANBERRY SOUR CREAM MUFFINS

We are so excited to share a seasonal muffin recipe with you that you can make year round from our friend, Janelle Shank, at Bakes in Slippers.

This post will be short and sweet.  On the plane coming to Ironman Arizona, I read a feature in Bazaar magazine called, “What’s In Our Clutches?”  My mind immediately changed clutches to backpacks and hence, the making of a new post was born.  We’ve written an article telling you what you SHOULD have in your backpack, but I wanted to know what was REALLY in…

DESIGNING A TRIATHLON SPACE – LESSONS LEARNED

Well, we thought it was a great plan when we built our house… We recently moved to Omaha and live downtown in the wonderful Old Market.  We took several apartments in a boutique building and combined them into our home on a wonderful southeast corner that gets the morning and day sun.  It is beautiful and we love it! It was about a year ago…

Hooked On Triathlons – The Making Of A Triwife

One of my friends joined our ranks this summer and is an official TRIWIFE.  (I’m so proud).  Actually, I’m so proud of both of them.  We’re talking a late bloomer here people…I asked Holly to share her experience and tell us what it’s like to be a newbie and how we can help.  Enjoy her story and be sure to let her know what tidbits…

GREEN CHERRY TOMATO RELISH RECIPE

No matter what the weather has in store for our tomatoes, we are ALWAYS left with an abundance of green tomatoes.  There is probably nothing better in life than fried green tomatoes, bacon, crisp lettuce, sweet onion, and homemade bread, toasted and slathered with a lemony homemade mayonnaise.  OMG…. BUT, one cannot live on sandwiches alone and the green tomatoes are calling to be used….

OFF-SEASON: ONE TRIWIFE’S PERSPECTIVE

Whether your triathlete’s last race of the season was Kona, a local race, or is coming up at Rev3 Florida, it all brings us to the same place – off-season.  No matter who you talk to…pros, coaches, your family doctor, or other triathletes, they will all say taking time off is a necessity.  Not only for the triathlete, but for the family, who has also…
