Ironman Canada

Ironman Canada time and our athletes did awesome! Patrick Haenel had a strong race and finished in 11:17. This was good enough for 20th in his AG! His dad, Mike, raced the 70.3 in his second ½ Ironman and finished in 7:09 and took 25th in his AG. Nice job Haenels! Cory Hankins also raced his first IM at Canada and finished well in 15:39! Great job, guys!

Racine 70.3, Flathead Lake, MT open water swim, Xmas in July 12-hour Ultra Run, Lisle, IL, Taylor House Bike Ride

Flathead Lake, MT

Flathead Lake, MT

Great racing this weekend! Congratulations to Heather Wilson and Eero Allison who raced in the Racine 70.3. Due to weather, the race was significantly changed. The swim was cancelled and the bike was shortened to 30 miles. They ended up changing the event to a 30-mile bike followed by a 13.1-mile run. It can be quite hard for an athlete to get their mind right when changes like this happen at the last second. Eero and Heather did great, though. Eero finished in 3:29 and took 30th in his AG, while Heather finished in 3:37 and took 19th in her AG.

In Flathead Lake, MTHeather Grahame competed in a ½-mile open water swim and a one-mile open water swim. She finished the sprint in 16:32 and the mile in 30:49 and took 2nd in her AG in each race.

In Lisle, ILFrank Smith competed in the Christmas in July 12-hour ultra-run. They had some timing issues, but Frank covered somewhere between 50 and 55 miles in the course of the 12 hours. He keeps his monthly marathon or longer streak alive!

We also had Joan McGue riding the Taylor House Bike Ride up in Flagstaff.

Good luck to Patrick Haenel who is racing IM Canada this weekend! His dad, Mike, is racing the 70.3. Go Haenels!

13th Annual Ironman Lecture Series

IMAZ15 run Malorie Charley closeupIt’s that time of year again! On June 15th, we’ll be starting our monthly Ironman lecture series for the 13th consecutive year. These lectures will be held on the first or second Wednesday (usually) of each month and will discuss in detail subjects pertaining to Ironman/Long Course triathlon training and racing. Subjects will include training volumes, equipment selection, nutrition, race day strategy, sports psychology/goal setting, and contingency planning.

These lectures may be some of the most important things you can do in preparing for a successful IM or long course event. Why learn the hard way? At these lectures you can learn from others’ mistakes and share your own lessons learned with your fellow IM athletes. Much of the information can be applied to ½ Ironman racing as well. Everyone is welcome to attend, if you would like to bring a friend.

The lectures will be held in the conference room of the Comfort Inn in Fountain Hills starting at 6:00PM and will usually be done by 7:30PM. The Comfort Inn is located at 17105 E. Shea Blvd, Fountain Hills AZ 85268. The dates of the lectures are listed below (dates and times subject to change). Hope to see you there!

Lecture #1 – Training Road Map – June 15th.
Lecture #2 – Nutrition – July 13th
Lecture #3 – Goal Setting – Aug 10th
Lecture #4 – Equipment Selection – Sep 14th
Lecture #5 – Contingency Plans – Oct 19th
