TRIATHLETE BURNOUT (PAUSE) UPDATE – “TIME TO GET SERIOUS”

A while back I wrote an article on my husband’s “pause” from triathlons this year, Triathlete Burnout (Pause) From the Sidelines.  He spent most of the summer playing golf and I think, mentally enjoying his time off.  The clubs have now been retired for the season and are keeping the bike company in the dining room – not for long as both are being sent…

YOUR TRIATHLETE HAS A COACH, YOU HAVE THE COACHES’ CORNER

Our triathletes’ relationships with their coaches have varied over the years.  They’ve ranged from very close friends to an online relationship only.  Regardless, it has always been with someone they can pour their hearts out to when they’ve had a tough race; someone who truly understands; and someone who knows exactly what to say to make it all better.  I’ve seen my husband literally write…
