8 OFF DAY FAMILY FUN ACTIVITIES DURING TRAINING SEASON

We all know how all time-consuming training is in season, but have you ever actually looked at your triathlete’s training schedule? I did and much to my surprise AND happiness, I found a few great words: off day, activity of choice, just do something active, and easy workout. Yes, those are actual terms. Well, sorry trihubby, you asked me to look up your swim workout…

UP CLOSE WITH CHARLIE PATTEN OF REV3

We love this interview with Charlie Patten of Rev3 on Slowtwitch.  He talks about the future of Rev3 AND the sport of triathlons and he should know.  If you or your triathlete have not done a Rev3 race, you really should check into it.  They are in great locations, tons of fun, and family friendly.  We have had the distinct pleasure of writing articles for Rev3,…

WHAT SETS TRISUPPORTERS APART?

PREFACE:   I’m probably really going to displease some people with my comments in this article and for that I do apologize, especially to my husband who may be very surprised to read my thoughts. We usually post very upbeat, positive musings and this one took a curve I actually wasn’t expecting.  But keep reading as it’s not all doom and gloom.  This site is meant to…

MULTI-CONVERSING AND THE TRIATHLETE

When was the last time you were having a conversation with your triathlete and they just started talking about their training?  It had no connection to your conversation whatsoever.  Did you get the feeling they were never into your conversation to begin with or have they mastered the art of the multi-conversation?  If it hasn’t happened to you yet, expect it.  We trisupporters are all…

THE TRIATHLON SPECTATOR’S TRAINING PROGRAM

Calling all Spectators!  Your athlete may be ramping up their training sessions as the off-season ends, so now is the perfect time for you to think about getting in race day shape yourself.  Don’t be fooled into thinking spectating is easy and not a sport.  You’ll need to be as equally prepared for whatever challenges race days throw at you as your triathlete, so it’s…

LIFE WITH A TRIATHLETE – TOP 10 QUOTES OF THE MONTH – DECEMBER

We have found over the years that living with a triathlete provides many unforgettable and often unbelievable statements that give pause.  Some of what comes out of their mouths just has to be shared.  But, we’ve also found it’s not just the triathlete that utters these comments; we’re often just as guilty as is the rest of the family. So, we decided in the spirit of being…

BEEN SAYING “NO” A LOT – MAYBE IT’S TIME TO SAY” YES”!

They tell me “We Are So Much More” than TriWives……..Really?  Sometimes it sure doesn’t feel that way to me. My life feels overwhelming sometimes.  I struggle to fit my loved one’s training schedule together with his and my work schedules (I work full time), so that we actually get to see each other and spend some cherished, fleeting moments together.  It’s at these times that…
