The ladies have returned from the Duathlon World Championships, with lots of good stories, memories, and a medal. I’ll fill everyone in on the details shortly.
As seriously as we take our racing, there are some things that are more important.
Like family. Like silly contests. So here’s one. The photograph below was taken on race day. Enter your caption in the comments section. The winning submission will receive a commemorative USA flag autographed by the ladies. Deadline is Friday, August 16.

And now for the winner(s) of the Pancake Limerick Contest!
The Sycophant Award goes to Billy Simmons. Of course he knows this is meaningless because, while his limericks aren’t bad, sucking up doesn’t work on this judge.
The It’s My Contest Award goes to Jonathan Cane. That doesn’t mean he’s actually won anything. Besides, he can get a t-shirt anytime he wants one.
The Award for Best Use of Colorful Language goes to Ken. My pans say the same thing whenever I try to use them.
The Cat Lover’s Award goes to Book Nerd. Let’s hope there isn’t any actual fur in those pancakes.
And the First Place Winner is…Emilia Benton! She’s clearly not a vegan but her heart is in the right place (hopefully, or how is she alive?).
Pancakes for dinner are what I’m makin’
Rest assured I am not fakin’
Such perfect fuel after a run
And eating them can be such fun
But so tragic without any bacon
Ms. Benton, please contact us and we’ll arrange to get your prize to you. Madam Judge, isn’t “first place winner” redundant? And aren’t you familiar with the phenomenon known as situs inversus?
Tune in next year for another pancake contest.

In honor of National Pancake Day, we are having a Pancake Limerick Contest. Last time around, our pancake haiku contest went over well, so now we’ll just change the format. Our official City Coach Poetry Judge will announce the awards next week. Deadline for entries is Friday, February 8, and entries must be posted in the comment section of the blog. The winner will receive a City Coach t-shirt that may or may not have some Bisquick powder on it, as well as the adoration of a legion of triathletes and poetry fans.
Remember, all entries must be submitted via the comments section by Friday, and must adhere to an AABBA rhyme scheme. All decisions by the City Coach Poetry Judge are final.

It’s been a while since our last trivia question. This one will likely take a little research, but it’ll be worth it, as the first person with the correct response will be awarded a nifty City Coach T-shirt. Here you go.
Who is Greta Varchi and what has she done that no woman in an Ironman has ever done? Get to Googling everyone.

When we announced last week’s crazy workout gear contest, I suspected that it would be a two horse race. The obvious favorite was the lovely Nicole Sin Quee, she of the mismatched compression socks, animal print booty shorts and leopard print swim cap. But even Ms. Sin Quee was outclassed this time. Our winner is our very own Matthew Duelka, who rode the bike leg of the NYC Triathlon in cutoff jorts, a John Starks basketball jersey, and NJ Nets headband. I commend all the entrants, but Mr. Duelka was not to be beaten.

Recently I entered my prized Grateful Dead sponsored, 1992 Lithuanian Olympic Basketball team jersey in a contest. Inexplicably, it did not win. (OK, maybe it wasn’t inexplicable since I recently publicly slammed the judge.)
Anyway, it got me to thinking. What’s the craziest piece of swim, bike, or run gear that’s still in your workout drawer? Show us your best bad – the crazy outfit that you’re most proud to rock. The winner will be awarded a shiny, new City Coach t-shirt. Here are the rules:
- Attach the photo in the comments section. (You’ll need to sign in with a Facebook, Twitter, Google or Disqus account.)
- Extra credit will be awarded to photos of you wearing said items.
- The team of judges at the Fitness Fashion Police will make the final decision on 9/10/12.
Congratulations to the one and only Billy Simmons, for his winning submission:
I told you to stay away from my bike. – Chuck Norris
Billy, please be sure to tweet a photo of yourself with your t-shirt. Thanks to all who submitted entries, and thank you to our judge.
It’s been a while since we published a caption contest, so it’s time to correct that error. Enter your caption as a comment. The winner will receive a spiffy City Coach T-shirt for their troubles. Our team of judge will make the final decision Monday, June 25. Remember that sucking up and bribery are appreciated.

Usually when I do a Separated at Birth comparison it's of two people. But these two group shots caught my eye.
There has been a lot of buzz about Saturday's Rock 'n' Roll 10k in Central Park. Many fans of the race commented that they were attracted to the race because of the high quality finishers' medals.
When I saw a photo of the runners in their corral before the race it reminded me of the little gem below.
