Those Who Train Together Stay Together

In 2012, I started my triathlon career.  After suffering some injuries that took team sports from me, I was looking for something different to do to help me stay in shape.  With the strong support of my wife, I jumped into the sport and got hooked on triathlon.  We traveled a bit to different events where she faithfully watched...

Skin Cooler Contest Winners

First place Male and Female -  David Matheson submitted by Tina Matheson I’m writing on behalf of my husband, David Matheson. He is an 8 time finisher of the Ironman World Championship in Kona, Hawaii. The first 6 times he raced on the Big Island, he thought the best way to stay cool in the lava fields was to wear a sleeveless singlet. However, no matter what type, or amount of sunscreen we applied, he would always end up burnt to a crisp.  The sunburn from 2009  And again from 2012 These sunburns were so bad, that you could still...
