TEAM EVENT: Ironman Coeur d’Alene, Idaho • June 24, 2012. We have a handful of TriForcers competing in this event.
Wildflower 2012- last weekend of April or First Weekend of May. This weekend long festival is THE legendary California triathlon and an early season classic. I’ll be racing the long course (Saturday) and the Olympic Distance race is Sunday.
Team Event: California 70.3 Oceanside- March 31 2012. Oceanside is THE premier HIM event in California (and one of the best in the country) and it would be great to do the race as a group next year. We have several TriForcers heading to Oceanside including: me, Sian “The Afterburner” Turner, Jake “the Irish Creamer” Bailey, Harpal “Go Far” Kochar, Ed “Fast Eddy” Korthof, and Rob “An Ironman Every Day” Gray. I love Oceanside because it’s quite early in the season and provides motivation for putting in the miles over the winter time.
Santa Rosa & Napa Valley Camp. March 8th – 10th @ DeLoach Winery & Silverado Hotel.
We kicked off our first camp of the year with some long rides through scenic vineyards and received a few drive-by hollers. We capped off the night with plenty of DeLoach wine. More pictures of our camp here. Special thanks to Lisa Heisinger for being a fantastic host at DeLoach winery.
We’re Going Back to Santa Cruz August 28th! TriForce is doing another training day at Santa Cruz. We’ll swim the pier, then bike and run along the coast. Athletes competing in Big Kahuna or the Santa Cruz Triathlon can … finish reading I Think It’s Time To Go To Santa Cruz – August 28, 2011
Wildflower 2011- last weekend of April or First Weekend of May. This weekend long festival is THE legendary California triathlon and an early season classic. I’ll be racing the long course (Saturday) and the Olympic Distance race is Sunday.
Ironman Coeur D’Alene June 26, 2011. We have 3 team members competing this year as well as several FOTFs (friends of TriForce) and AOTFs (acquaintances of TriForce). We’ll meet up and train on Friday and Saturday, cheer for each other on Sunday and swap war stories on Monday!
St. George Camp: March 13(ish) -March 20 2011. We’ll be going to St. George, Utah to help team members prepare for the Ironman or just for a big week of training. We’ll start early in the week (exact day TBD), but we’ll save the biggest most important workouts for later in the week for those who can only do a long weekend. More details to follow.
Stanford Treeathlon: Feb 27. A rare opportunity to go fast for the team and a nice cold bay swim to get people ready for St. George. Bonus– this replaces your Monday & Tuesday workouts.
Wildflower Triathlons: April 30 – May 1st 2011. My favorite race and I know some team members are competing. I’m considering going down on Wednesday after the team run to get there a couple of days early to grab a good camping spot and to do some training on the course. Let me know if you’re interested in joining me.
