PART BEAR. PART MAN. ALL AMERICAN
Friday, March 12, 2010
How on earth did four months go by without so much as a whisper on my blog? Even after receiving two kicks-in-the-pants from a couple of pals (thanks, Carole D and Cody H!), I have continued to neglect. But now, after viewing my Chief Technical Advisor’s video tutorial on how to blog, manage the site, and upload pics from Flickr, I am making a comeback! Oh yeah.
So far 2010 has been an outstanding year. My beautiful and talented wife started out the season with a victory at one of the coolest races on the planet: Pucon 70.3; we have settled back into our spring and winter life down here in Austin, Texas – and our friends have embraced our return; and the training has been going very well for both of us. On top of that, we have partnered up with a few new sponsors this year, and I can absolutely say that we have the best support in the industry. The products and companies we are working with are the best; and the relationships we have been able to form are truly amazing. We are very pleased to be working with each one of these folks!
And last, but not least, we have formed an incredible team of athletes this year: Team Trakkers. Together with Saucony, Kestrel and First Endurance, Trakkers has assembled a group of pros who will be contending for wins and podiums at every distance from Ironman down to Olympic and sprint. Our age groupers (36 of them!) are fast, insightful, inspiring, fun, dedicated, and committed to our sport. We are a fun bunch, and we plan to demonstrate that Triathlon can thrive with top quality support of the professional athletes, as well as a true dedication to the inspirational stories of our amateur athletes.
Stay tuned to this blog, to twitter, and to all of your favorite industry websites for updates on how our Trakkers Team is bringing it in 2010!
And don’t worry, I won’t let another four months go by…
