Duathlon Nationals Race Report

Nicole Sin Quee and Jessica Purcell made a field trip to Tucson, AZ for the Duathlon National Championship this weekend, and both ladies had impressive and inspiring performances.

The course included a pair of 5k runs on a challenging course, and a 35k ride on rolling terrain between the runs. NSQ was 8th into T1, made up some ground on the ride and though she struggled with the Arizona heat late in the race (and was the medical tent’s “first ...

Forget the PR 50k Race Report

Not only is Forget the PR 50k one of the best names in racing, it’s also an opportunity for our Ohio chapter (a/k/a) Kevin Motsch to show its strength. The aptly and amusingly named race boasts 50k of trails, including 4500+ feet of climbing. Two years ago Kevin finished in 5:35, while this year he moved up to 6th place, and a time of 4:55:09.

Congratulations Kevin.

No Whining: Running Blind Edition

No Whining: Running Blind Edition

In case you’re considering skipping your run this weekend because it’s too hot, cold, wet, dry, hilly, flat, or for just about any other reason, please consider the case of Simon Wheatcroft. Mr. Wheatcroft lost his sight at age 18, yet continues to run. Like other blind runners, at times he runs with a guide, but at other times he runs solo. On the road.

According to The Guardian “He also recruited technology to help him form his mental map ...

Boston Marathon Recap

Boston Marathon Recap

To say that it was hot for yesterday’s Boston Marathon would be an understatement. To say that I’m proud of our team for toughing it out despite the conditions would also be an understatement.

Late last week the forecast started looking bad, but they were still “just” calling for temps in the 60’s at the start, and high 70’s or low 80’s my early afternoon.  At that point it still seemed manageable, and runners hoped to put together a fast ...

2:59:40 (AKA Bonnie Averbuch’s Rotterdam Marathon)

There’s a new women’s City Coach marathon record, and it’s held by Bonnie Averbuch. She just ran a 2:59:40 at the Rotterdam Marathon. Bonnie ran 1:30:45 for the first half, and then negative split it with a 1:28:55 on the back end. It’s wonderful to see all her hard work and discipline paying off.

Congratulations Bonnie. We’re all happy for you and proud of you.

Hot Weather Marathon Tips

Posted by:

It’s looking like the conditions will be challenging for Monday’s Boston Marathon. If the current forecast holds, most of the race will be run with temperatures in the low to mid-70’s, which is far from ideal, but also better than the mid-80’s that are predicted as the day’s high.

High temperatures can lead to dehydration and overheating. Your body tries to stay cool by sweating and by sending more blood to the skin where it’s cooled. That’s all well and good, ...

My Return to Racing – The Brooklyn Duathlon

My Return to Racing – The Brooklyn Duathlon

“Did the competition send you?” – 5:30 am, race morning, to my 5-month old son.

It is on. Race season has started and I have some goals.

Yesterday I raced the Brooklyn Duathlon, and it was a good way to shake off the cobwebs. The last time I raced on a bike was at Triathlon Nationals in 2010 and since yesterday’s race, I had only been outdoors on a bicycle three times. All my training had been on the Computrainer. Compound that ...

Brooklyn Duathlon Race Report

Brooklyn Duathlon Race Report

Yesterday was the 28th Annual Brooklyn Duathlon. Actually, it’s the first time that the NY Tri Club actually called it a duathlon instead of a biathlon, and it’s only the seventh time on this course, but I digress.  Over the years this race has been our traditional season opener, and it has treated us well. Back in the day, it was Chris Bergland’s first multisport victory, and a few years ago our ladies (Amy May, Jeannine Bardo, Yvonne Kingon) ...
