Event comments:

No transition security. No on site medical, which my wife found out after she saw a guy come in that had wrecked and they had to call an ambulance. Took 15 minutes to get there. Very under staffed in transition and the finish line. Over all not worth doing again.

Do you find your hip hurting after running or after running a long race? This article provides diagnosis and treatment for greater trochanteric pain syndrome.

Not only is he a great athlete, he is a great mentor. I have been in his mentor group for the last two rounds and he inspires and encourages our entire group daily.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

You’re probably not going to get it just right immediately. Like always, just do the best you can and keep on keeping on. Don’t get upset if you don’t hit the target every time.
