Selle Italia Selle Italia Flite Gel Flow
(4.1)
My first Tribike was a 2001 Canondale Multisport that I got used. It had a Stella Italia Flite seat and when I took the bike to the local Bike Mechanic he said that I got a really[...]

There are so many nice touches to the product, it's hard to remember what a technological miracle it is to measure whether I'm fat burning or carb burning at any moment in the day.[...]

Race Reports

Asics 10k
Warm morning. Gillian struggled at the beginning but regrouped and put in a good run
Highbury Fields Parkrun
Happy with the run. Train arrived in Highbury 3 mins before the start so a mad dash to the line, throwing baggage into drop whilst all other runners were starting!!! Add that to the[...]

  • How I Became A Triathlete

    Published from the archives of member-submitted articles that were never previously published.When I saw my first triathlon competition on television in the winter of 2008, I was lounging on the couch in my oversized sweats, eating pepperoni pizza.  Out of shape, clearly not a nutritional role model, and with no a[...]

Every time I started a new workout routine (or tried to), it has been geared towards completing a sprint tri. Three years ago, I even registered for a local race, but chickened out the night before. Thanks to a recent career move, around the start of the Ne[...]

  • First Tri: A bit too cocky

    One night in mid February, I mentioned to my son that he ought to do the Xterra Xticer race at Oak Mountain State Park in May of this year. This should be easy – 200m swim, 11k mountain bike, and 2k run. He said he would do it if I would, so we registered and the challenge was on. I printed out the bike course fr[...]

  • I finished. And it took something.

    I slowly approached the finish area of the Lewisburg, PA Sprint Triathlon. As I prepared to turn left at the approaching road and finish the last 100 yards in the direction of the large, red inflated finish tube, a volunteer stepped forward to tell me to continue straight ahead to the next street before turning left.
