Well as you all know this winter has been filled with non stop SNOW!!!!!! This has made training TOUGH!
Lots of treadmill running and no biking outdoors in months. Thankfully i just got back from a training camp in las Cruces New Mexico where I got some much needed biking in!
I cannot believe we are in the second month of 2011 already!!! Where is the time going?
I have been wanting to update my blog for a while...but with Facebook and Twitter,camps and kids time just flies!!!!
Today I am feeling a little under the weather as everyone over the course of camp got sick...I stayed healthy until the last two days of camp and I have managed to bring it back to New Jersey. So I shall use this day off to take the time to relax for a bit and catch up on all the exciting things happening in Team Trakkers!
Firstly I am so happy and privileged to be part of this Team for the second year! As far as I am concerned this is the Team to be on...we are fortunate to be a part of the greatest new series to hit triathlon...The Rev 3 Triathlon series!
The REVOLUTION3 Triathlon is changing the way triathlons are run! They recognized the need for a first class race experience while keeping things fun for everyone! With the growth of triathlon the need to change the way athletes and their loved ones view and participate in triathlons of all distances is so important.
My family can vouch for this. I have been racing for eight years and them coming to races started to get old...the early starts and then waiting around with nothing to do, in undesirable locations was resulting in me taking alot more trips without them. But with the start of Rev 3 all this has changed. It has become a more interactive, enjoyable experience for them by providing fun activities for my children and my husband during the race. Revolution 3 is all about change! Change for the age grouper, change for the professional athlete, and change for the spectators.
With races like Quassy and Cedar Point and now Costa Rica...these are now memories that we can all share together!
So thus I am happy and excited to report that in ten days we shall all head out to Costa Rica for a fabulous family vacation and an opportunity for me to race against some of the best athletes in a stunning destination. What more can a mom who loves being a competitive athlete ask for!!!!
Now back to Trakkers. The team has some amazing sponsors for 2011.
Firstly we shall continue to ride our wonderful speedy Kestrel bikes. I am looking forward to trying the new 4000 out. I have heard so many good reviews on it.
Secondly we have 2 new sponsors....Avia and TYR!!! Exciting!
I have been admiring the Avia's cool skull looking merchandise and running shoes for a few years now and am glad I get to try them first hand! www.avia.com
Over the years I have had several TYR belongings but this is my first year to be sponsored by them. Along with a new fast looking Hurricane westsuits we have been given, are there amazing line of TYR travel luggage. This is the sweetest looking set that will accompany me on many racing trips this year! Who knew TYR had a luggage line. Check it out on the TYR website.
We are back with First Endurance again. By far the most complete and amazing nutrition product line on the market! Just look at all the Elite teams that are using there products. A sign of how they are recognized as one of the leaders of nutrition is Endurance Sport! EFS/Ultragen/Multi V and Optygen HP got me through this last ten days of intense training out in Las Cruces.
My latest discovery is 1 scoop of Cappuccino Ultragen mixed with warm milk before bed...ahh sets me up for a great nights sleep!
Well more to update on my recent training trip to Las Cruces....but that's all I have time for for now!
