A New Personal Best! You can view the file with my GPS data from my race today (see below). What the data doesn’t show is that it was a windy day, but not as windy as expected (steady 8mph vs 18!). I was a little nervous starting into the weekend, as it’s been a [...]

This year we have a handful of Team EN athletes competing at Ironman Florida. They are an awesome bunch, some new and some veterans, all coming to put their mental and physical mettle to the test in the classic one-day event. The 2010 edition sees the bike course changed due to some new roads, but guaranteed there will be suffering and spectacle on the big day. Learn more about the Team and the unique individuals who make up our IMFL crew below. You can also track them online on race day using our Team Tracking Sheet (coming soon to the EN homepage).
Every October, the world’s fittest triathletes will gather for the annual ritual that is the Ironman World Championships. The week is a virtual who’s who of the endurance world, with the roster of participants and spectators including all manner of superstars. But all the marketing money and hype aside, there’s something else that makes the event unique — it’s the fact that on Saturday, one day, everyone from PROs to lottery winners line up to test themselves against the elements and the world’s best.
Ironman Louisville 2010 was going to be hot. We all knew it heading into the morning, and my first step outside my condo confirmed it — Sunday was going to be a true test of execution, nutrition, and mental skills. By mid-morning the sun was in full effect and it was bearing down on the racers. Combined with the humidity, it was an evil 1-2 punch that didn’t go away until some clouds rolled in around 6pm. Riding had a slight cooling effect; but it wasn’t helpful as most folks didn’t realize just how hot it had become started running!
ENFans, Rich and Patrick will be in Madison to support the nearly 40 TeamEN athletes, and their families, racing on Sunday. We invite you to join us for several fun events we have planned for you! Please visit the links below for complete details, to RSVP and share these events with your friends. All are [...]
Finally, a Team EN update with results and some excerpts from their race reports as posted in our members-only forum. The following is an overview of our results with some additional color commentary added! Yeah, Endurance Nation!
The 2010 edition of Ironman Lake Placid went off pretty much without a hitch. Weather reports all week suggested that it would be wet and pretty ugly. But the day actually turned out to be a pretty good day for racing. Still cool in the mornings with a couple quick showers, but the race kicked off under overcast skies with all reports pointing to a rough and pretty fast swim. People said it was brutal in the water. While the additional 800 people didn’t appear to show up so much in the photographs, they were definitely felt by the athletes in the water.
