Just like the legendary Healdsburg Running Company workouts, these are free to everyone. We just ask that: (1) you are reasonably confident and competent in terms of being safe biking on the roads and swimming in the open water. (2) you sign our waiver so we don’t lose our insurance; and (3) that you are fun!
Sunday Open Water Swims
Bring your goggles, wetsuit (suggested) and your safety buoy (highly suggested) and meet at the boat launch at 8 am (tentatively) with wetsuits on, swimming at 8:15. We’ll likely break into at least 2 groups– the “peppy group” (where people might get dropped) and we’ll usually have Caroline Bontia of Shop Local Healsdburg on Kayak support for the “no drop” “fun group.”
WEDNESDAY BRICK (BIKE + RUN) 6 PM FROM HRC
Bring your bike, helmet and running shoes. We’ll warm up together out to West Dry Creek Road then ride out and back through the vineyards at our own speeds, returning to HRC for a short run off the bike. Requirements: wear a helmet and be sure your bike is in safe working condition.
About Me (Coach Coady)
I’ve been competing in triathlon for almost 20 years and coaching for over 10 years. I’ve coached all kids of athletes. Everyone from first time triathlon finishers, many first time Kona qualifiers, and even a couple of athletes who finished top 10 in their age group at world championships. More about me here.
What else besides a swim & brick?
We’ll see! We’re starting small and low key wih a couple of social workouts per week as a fun way to bring our local tri (or tri curious) community together. But my hope is that we can create a fun and kickass little local team here in Healdsburg. We’ll see what happen!
Last time we started a squad...
Last time I started a little in person squad (on the Google campus) we created life long friendships, a bunch first time triathlon, Ironman and 70.3 finishers, several first time Kona and Boston Marathon qualifiers, a top 10 finisher at Kona World Champs and one athlete even went on the win the Ultraman World Championship. I bet we’ll unearth some serious HBG talent.
