  • Utah Training Camp Highlights

    UTAH TRAINING CAMP 2018 We had 9 spectacular warm and sunny days at training camp this year!! There were so many highlights from seeing our newer athletes complete their first triathlon to the veterans looking stronger than ever and exceeding expectations in terms of speed and distance covered.

We did video analysis of the swimmers and then coached in pool stroke correction so the swimmers could feel the ....

  • World Cyclocross Championships - Congratulations Patricia


    I travelled to Belgium at the end of November to participate in the World Masters Cyclocross Championships which were held in Mol, about 100 km NE of Brussels the first weekend of Dec. The site of the competition was again the Zilvermeer Recreation area with a very scenic but tough race circuit due to the amount of deep sand to ride or run through, mostly running. I arrived on the Friday before my race so had a full week to recover from the jet lag and to prepare. The awesome B and B where I stayed was about a 2 min drive from the venue and within easy access of numerous bike routes which are ....

  • An Inspirational Story about Not Giving Up

    My friend Lucie and Itraveledto Quebec City to participate in the ITU Winter Triathlon which was held on the Plains of Abraham. The distances were a 5km snowshoe (3 laps), an 11km skate (30 laps) of a skating oval and a 9.5 km ski (3laps). The day started off somewhat on the cool side with some blustery winds but we optimistically thought that the weather would improve and that we would have a pleasant afternoon in the sun. That turned out to be overly wishful thinking! By the 3rd lap of the snowshoe, a winter weather system moved in with blizzard-like conditions, howling winds, blowing snow and poor visibility. The skate ....

    Twas The Night Before Tri Christmas!

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Team Triumph Coaching Staff!
    From: Maggie. Brenda, David, Ashlen, Julia and Paula
    We look forward to helping you CRUSH your goals in 2018!!

    Twas the night before a tri Christmas, when all through the house, Not a triathlete was stirring, not even their spouse; The wetsuits were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that TriSanta soon would be there; The running shoes were nestled all snug in their boxes by the beds, While visions of personal best danced in the triathletes heads; And the tribike in the garage, and I in my swim cap, Had just settled down for a long ....
