150 150 Rich Strauss

Edwin Croucher, Ironman Lake Placid Finisher! Yeah, it was a little wet out there.   This was my second full triathlon and my second race at Ironman Lake Placid. 2013 was a totally self-coached effort. I read a lot from Joe Friel and tried to gain training knowledge from anywhere and anyone I could.  For reasons I…

150 150 Coach P

Ironman Lake Placid was my 3rd Ironman and 1st wearing the EN colors.  I had my best build to date for an Ironman by staying motivated and relatively injury free.  The only modification I had to make was a significant reduction in swim volume the last few weeks due to a sore shoulder from falling off my bike.  When I…

To start off my family did not want to go to Lake Placid and reminded me of that fact every day of the trip except race day. My kids prefer warm weather and beaches. The cold 45 degree evenings in Lake Placid were not what their idea of fun. PreRace We flew into Albany on…

Thankfully everything turned out exactly like I imagined. 12 days before Lake Placid I crashed on my bike. I was going over 40 mph down a mountain road when it happened. I…
