2018 Sponsor- Brooks Running

That’s right, another sponsor! Brooks running is continuing into 2018!

I wrote last year about my journey through the running shoe world until I landed at the Brooks Launch 3. Over the last season that transitioned to the Launch 4, and now to the newly released Launch 5!

2018 Sponsor: Nutrition

Nutrition has been my Achilles heel over the last few seasons. I haven’t quiet nailed it. My implosion on the run at my first 70.3 I believe was due to improper nutrition and not to improper pacing on the bike. This year… my goal is to change that!

To meet that goal, I present to you my 2018 nutrition sponsors!

2018 Sponsor- Trisports

Today I’m continuing my 2018 sponsor announcements with my old friend Trisports!

If you have been following the blog you know Trisports has been a partner for the last 3 seasons. They were actually my first sponsor! Seaton and Debbie Claggett were great to work with over the last few seasons and their passion for the triathlon community was so refreshing! You will also have seen that Trisports.com had to close it’s doors a few months back, but that they never fully closed down operations. The Claggett’s and a few remaining staff liquidated as much inventory as they could and then, all of a sudden, the company changed hands and a new website was launched and the news was out that Trisports was under new ownership. 

I have been in contact with Gary Wallesen, Continue reading

2018 Sponsor- Flaér

Over the next few weeks I will be introducing my 2018 sponsors! I’ve got a great team partnering with me this year as I am making a run at the Long Course Duathlon World Championships, and I want you to get to know them!

First up in a new partner this year: Flaér! Continue reading

Trisports Under New Management

A little while ago, Trisports announce to it’s staff, sponsored athletes, and then the public that it would be forced to close it’s doors at any time. Since then they have been liquidating their stock and putting up amazing deals on in-stock items.

A Change of Fortune

Just Thursday afternoon, however, a few of us noticed that they had changed their contact information on their facebook page Continue reading

5 of my Top Posts- 100th Post Celebration

Today I just realized that my post this week was number 100 on Triathlonpal.com! Crazy to think I’ve already made it up to number 100.

And to celebrate, I want to look back on 5 of my tops posts (according to view statistics)

1. Super League Triathlon Pro Race Report
This is my most viewed post, and for good reason. Super League triathlon is a big deal. It has the potential to make big waves across the sport. I’m looking forward to seeing how the rest of the series turns out. Check it out to see my thoughts on the race.

2. Hammer Nutrition: Fully Charged Product review
To be honest this one has taken me a bit by surprise. I was not expecting it to be so popular, but since it is a fairly new product on the market, people want to know what it’s like. Thanks to Trisports.com for hooking me up for the review! Check out the post and see if it’s something you would like to try.

3. Finish Line Super Bike Wash Product Review
Another product review in my top posts. I think people just like to see other’s experiances and know what they are getting. I use this stuff every time I clean my bike. Love it!

4. A Tour of My Pain Cave
This is another fun post. I give you all a tour of my “Pain Cave” or my trainer set up. This has changed a bit since the relocation. It’s so much sweeter now. I’ll have to revisit this one soon.

5. Zwift and FTP Tests
Zwifters are fanatical! It really has grown quite the following over the short time it’s been on the market. I beta tested it, but am no longer on the program. Still, it’s a great program you should check out!

I hope you all enjoyed this trip down memory lane! I sure did! Thank you all for reading the blog as consistently as you do, and if you are new around here, subscribe to stay up to date on all that happens. Here’s to the next 100 posts!

Cary Du Classic- USAT Long Course Duathlon National Championships 2017- Race Report

My first “A” race of the season is now complete! There is nothing quite like the feeling you get after a solid block of training, a perfect taper, and stepping up to the start line with great form. I’m pleased to say I was able to do that this year at the Cary Du Classic!

This race has been on my schedule for the last 3 years in a row. The last 2 years it has been the host of the USAT Long Course Du National Champs. Each year the race itself has gotten better, and each year I have improved on my previous year’s performance.

However, this year’s course was significantly altered from the previous years, Continue reading

What did you get for Christmas?

That’s right… the question you always get as you return to work after the Christmas Vacation. What did you get?

Well, my stocking was very much triathlon focused this year… probably because that’s what I put on my list 🙂 That, and my wife just gets me 🙂 So here’s what I got:

  • Honey Stinger Bars– still getting into the Honey Stinger World, and so far I really like these!
  • Skratch Labs Hydration– The best… period. Got some apples and cinnamon for those cold rides, and some individual servings of various flavors.
  • X-lab Torpedo Kompact– A new BTA system for my bike. I’m still trying to figure it all out since my bars are non-standard (read: old). I think I can make it work, and I like the computer mount on top
  • Trigger Point Massage Ball– Recovery is key!
  • Body Glide– no comment needed
  • TrainerRoad Subscription– I’m excited to get back on TR for the winter this year
  • A few other non-triathlon things… like socks… Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without new socks 🙂

So what did you get? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter! If you’re looking to spend the Christmas money you got… check out my Christmas Gift Guide and trisports.com! (I’ve got discount codes if you want them!)

2017 Sponsor: Honey Stinger

This Monday features another one of my sponsors for the 2017 season! This year I am partnering with Honey Stinger for my nutrition in training and racing. I’ve been impressed with Honey Stinger’s products and I am looking forward to the edge they will give me in 2017.

About Honey Stinger

Honey Stinger began very simply back in 1954 when beekeepers Ralph and Luella Gamber created an alternative to the candy bars of the day called the EN-R-G Bar. Alongside those early candy bars they also sold small, 2oz packets of honey labeled “Quick Energy.”
