Triathlon

Last year, I completed my first sprint triathlon. I had no idea what I was doing while training and was confused regularly I found in free online sprint tri training plans. I needed help. Here is a guest post from Katie, a friend I met at Snowbird last January, who is one badass triathlete with […]

My memorial day started a little later than most and was dedicated to my triathlon training primarily. On Saturday, I woke up and went for a swim using a workout that Josh Crosby gave to me. Marni, one of the Oakley gals, is also a triathlete and gave me some pointers so I was excited […]

I took Rebuild Ride this morning for the inaugural 9 am class that combines 30 minutes of cycling with 30 minutes of abs and arm strength training. I signed up […]

In New York City, cycling studios like SoulCycle and FlyWheel have a cult following but even after 6 years, their studios have yet to migrate to Boston. Luckily, we don’t need them thanks to a few local fitness enthusiasts. Weston native, Cate Dwyer lived in New York City right after college falling in love with […]

Do you need inspiration? An 82 year-old man swam 2.1 miles, biked 114, and ran a marathon to complete the World Championship Ironman race in Kona. You can run a 5K. You can run a 10K. You can do a triathlon. You just need to believe you can. I shot a ton of video while […]

Have you ever cried at a finish line? From my own Chicago Urbanathlon to spectating the Boston Marathon, I’m not one to be shy of tearing up. In Hawaii, the emotions were brought to an entirely new level. All week, as social ambassadors for Timex, we interviewed the different amateur and professional athletes competing. Many […]
