I have had a few folks ask me if I was racing Ironman this year.
"What's up???" No more racing Ironman for me. I have not raced since 2006. Due to physical issues I am unable to complete the type of run training necessary to race. I have full time focus on supporting the athletes I coach toward their Ironman goals. That is something I get great pleasure from! I am enjoying riding with friends/athletes, putting on volume training camps, swimming masters and teaching within our sport.
Iíll be traveling with my bike for race week in Kona while supporting the athletes I coach who will be racing. I plan to ride the entire course a few times if anybody is interested in getting out to the mid ride ice cream shop in Hawi town. While there I will be hanging out on The Coffees of Hawaii canoe with Albert and the crew, serving up espresso to morning swimmers. I am doing a November camp with Gordo on the St George Utah course, perhaps Epic Camp in New Zealand this January and some big volume cycling in San Diego between those planned events. Iíll be teaching/coaching at the Endurance Corner Tucson Camp in March 2010 and Iíll be at the new St. George IM in Utah next May with the athletes I coach who are racing there. Iíll use that trip as another opportunity for extended cycling. Scott Molina and I will be doing 2010 fitness camps in Tuscany (June) and Sedona, AZ (September). www.fitness-over-fifty.net You donít have to be over fifty (we will be) but you do have to be fun and closer to fifty than thirty or have special waiver. Hope to see you out and about.
