PART BEAR. PART MAN. ALL AMERICAN
Michael Lovato: Race Resume
Every single time we Ironman athletes toe the line, there is a common goal among us: to get to the finish line. We each start the day with a different list of goals, each prioritized differently. Wh...
New York, New Jersey
Very early in the morning of Saturday August 11th, I awoke and began preparing myself to race the U.S. Ironman Championships. Technically, because the race was in New York, New York, my 2:45 a.m. wa...
San Juan, Puerto Rico
While I have traveled through San Juan multiple times on my way to St. Croix, this was my first proper visit to the island of Puerto Rico. And I loved (nearly) every minute of my time there! Aman...
This was my second time racing the 70.3 down in Pucón, and it's safe to say that with only two trips to this Chilean resort town, it's one of my all-time favorite events. Often race become favorite...
It's been nearly one week since the 2011 Hawaii Ironman, and I feel that I have finally sorted through the emotional ups and downs of my race, as well as the competitive details I remember from the la...
Muskoka Lakes, Ontario
Last week Amanda and I made the long trek up to cottage country in Northern Ontario (which is in the country of Canada, for those less geographically inclined). Looking for a race to fit between Steel...
Benton Harbor, MI
My plan for delivering a race report for last weekend's race was to wait until all the dust had settled. And what I mean by dust settling is that I thought I'd wait until the soreness in my legs had...
Last weekend Amanda and I went to Portland to experience the inaugural Rev3 Portland Triathlon. Our weekend (week, actually) was filled with plenty of fun activities, and the summary of said diversion...
There are very few events on the circuit that can rival the history, the challenge, and the vibe of Buffalo Springs. While there have been a few softer years with regard to weather, it is never an eas...
Report: Post-Underpants Run, I was feeling relaxed and ready to rumble. I had confidence in my build-up, and I knew I was ready to improve upon my 2007 Ironman. I had decided to imp...
The week and a half prior to the event went very smoothly. Amanda and I established a great routine of getting up early every day, going to bed early every night, and eating very well for each meal. I...
I traveled to New Hampshire with Simon and his friend Alan. We had a pretty uneventful trip to Boston, and the drive up to Gilford was fairly painless. Both Simon and I were slated to talk at the "Din...
Coeur d'Alene, ID
About five days have passed since the race up in Idaho, and I thank you all for tuning in for my report. I apologize for the delay, but I decided to take a bit of a step back before writing the report...
The race at Disney has changed elements of its course each of the last four years, since its inception. The swim has remained the same, the bike has changed from year to year, and there have been thre...
I'm finally back home in Boulder, and I've finally found my way to the computer, so I thought I'd send out the initial race report... who am I kidding? As long as I'm reporting, I might as well give t...
I never have understood how most folks seem capable of putting together race reports within hours of finishing their events. I never even understand how they get them done within a day or two. I alway...
As opposed to my standard long-winded approach, I'll offer just the brief re-cap of my race...as the travel to the race was the truly exciting adventure! (And it is perhaps the story of the travel th...
Coeur d'Alene, ID
The media and the experts were sure of two things prior to the 2005 Ironman USA-Coeur d’Alene: that the winner would be from Boulder and his last name would begin with “L”. Their arguments were ...
Wasn't it supposed to be hot and dry in the desert? That's what I thought, and that's just what told me I was doing the right thing in racing the inaugural Ironman in Tempe, AZ on April 9th. My last r...
