TRIATHLETE HAVE YOU SEEING GREEN? OPPOSITE SEX TRAINING PARTNERS

Spends many hours away from home; is in the company of an attractive, physically fit, disciplined person of the opposite sex; comes home sweaty and out of breath; makes excuses for why they’re late, such as had a flat tire – sounds like the scenario for a spouse having an affair, doesn’t it?  But in this case, it’s just part of living with a triathlete….

Dave Orlowski – Original Ironman Talks Racing & Spectating

The TriWives had the distinct pleasure to chat with Dave Orlowski, one of the original 1978 Ironman, who finished 3rd by the way.  Over the years, Dave has taken on the role of both racer and spectator, so he was able to offer a unique perspective for this interview.  Dave actually did not do another Ironman until 2008 for the 30th anniversary in Kona.  Since…

TRIATHLETE BURNOUT (PAUSE) FROM THE SIDELINES

I never thought this would happen in our household – my triathlete husband literally stopped training. There are no more 4am workouts in the basement; no more swims after work; no more 7-hour bricks on the weekends. We now actually go out to dinner at 8pm, since he’s not getting up early. I’ve seen movies on Saturday afternoons AND nights. He goes grocery shopping with…
