Back to the Future

For some reason we feel the need to review events from 2009 yet again and then we play television critics concerning NBC's lackluster coverage of the 2009 Ironman World Championships in Kona. After that we lay down our plans, or lack-thereof, for 2010.

The Year in Review

It's time to put away our 2009 training logs and crack open a new one for 2010. We reflect on all that has happened over the past year. Also Jeff reveals the prognosis for a nagging injury he has had for several months. And we revisit our thoughts on what we have learned from triathlon. Do you ever quit?

The King of Kona

And we're back at our favorite local tri shop - Runner's High 'N Tri. We sit down with Trudy Wakeman, race director of the Chicago Triathlon, and get a sense of what it's like managing a race of 9000 triathletes. Then we go shopping for some great winter gear and then Mark regales us with anecdotes from his trip to the IM World Championship in Kona. You won't believe where he ended up on race day, but it has to do with a Ford Edge with a clock on the roof and a little boy named Austin Alexander (yes, THAT Austin Alexander!)
