Jake’s 70.3 Race Report!

Remember Jake? We highlighted him the week of Muncie 70.3. He completed his goal- and we got to see him finish. I pretty much pestered him for the past week and a half to have him send over a race report… here it is: When Glenn agreed to start coaching me in February, the thought … more »

Muncie 70.3 Race Report

I can’t believe it’s over. I decided to train for Ironman Muncie 70.3 14 weeks ago. I had plenty of endurance built up as I was coming off of a March Marathon, but in 14 weeks I needed to learn how to swim more than 2 laps without stopping and work on getting faster and … more »

Usually when I tell someone I’m training for a half Ironman, they tell me they are terrible at swimming and they’d do one if it weren’t for … more »

Triathlon training- MUNCIE 70.3

I’m on week 5 of Half Ironman training. It is a lot of working out, but I really am enjoying it. While I sometimes really want to get off the bike, because 25 miles at the gym gets super boring… I am glad for the break from running 6 days a week. To me, the biking … more »

Half Marathons Scare Me

Part of me wishes I would have raced a half during my marathon training. I was in full on training mode, had good confidence going and 13.1 just didn’t seem like a very far distance. There weren’t any nearby that would have worked out timing wise though and I wasn’t willing to spend the time … more »
