Just wanted to share how much I am looking forward to my favourite tri of the year and my last in the season.

Who is doing Banff this year?

Passing this year (still on vacation after Whistler), next year is tight with ITU worlds so I might do both races.

I'm racing the sprint.   It was my first ever tri (last year) and I'm looking forward to an improved performance.  (knock on wood!)

get in the water early and get your face wet (wear a neoprene cap too)... its ice cream headache cold so give your body time to adjust.

I did it last year and it was gorgeous weather. I also used ear plugs and they really help protect from that cold water. Neoprene cap was great as well.

I have always been an athlete, growing up playing team sports like basketball and soccer. I also ran in a couple of 10K races every year, so I had no reason to worry about running a 5K...right?

After I left the running store, I couldn't stop thinking about the sprint tri and how much of a challenge it would be for me. So instead of joining a gym, I started riding my bike and it felt great.

A product review of the Louis Garneau Tri Air Triathlon Shoe. After nearly two years of testing, see how this shoe performed. Currently being replaced by the Tri Air 2.

I couldn’t help but feel that the race had beaten me. Perhaps duathlons were more for me? No, I was more determined than ever to succeed. I was determined to get on top of my swimming.

This life of mine is not so different from yours. It has a multitude of similarities. I suffer from uncertainty, I get nervous at the thought of registering and when getting to the starting line.

I am not going to buy a tri-suit before my first tri - I want to make sure I am going to stick with this before I spend a lot of money on it so I want to figure out what will work best.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
