Triathlon IS a LIFESTYLE Sport!

Triathlon is a LIFESTYLE sport.  Simply put, triathlon is a combination of activities that the majority of the population can do – whether 8 years old or 80 years old – the majority of the population can make a triathlon happen – swim, bike, run – and you are a triathlete.

There is no magic formula or even a magic race distance that brands one a “triathlete.”  In our book, putting the 3 disciplines together, putting a plan in place and making it happen, and then racing with your oldest friends and surely new friends to come, creates memories and a triathlete – and a triathlete for life.

No doubt LIFE has ebbs and flows.  Some years you will be completely enthralled with the sport, racing, specific race goals and more while other years – even though not as motivated as year’s prior or as dedicated, the flame still burns – maybe not as bright – but it is there.  In our opinion, this is one of the extraordinary aspects of the sport of triathlon.  Once a triathlete, always a triathlete, and always there to help new athletes to the sport.

At TYB, we make it a mission to live the triathlon lifestyle.  Again, some years you will see some of our coaches racing 12 races a years and the next year the race number may be 1 – but make no mistake about it – we are alive in the triathlon lifestyle – both from a personal aspect and growing the sport through TYB and various other avenues.

TYB is also excited and thrilled to be part of the NCAA Women’s Triathlon initiative with Southern Wesleyan University.  Again, creating a triathlon culture in our youth and junior athletes, exposing new athletes to the sport of triathlon, and continuing to build the lifestyle of triathlon.

Turning the Page to 2017

2017-1

Who knew Bob Seger wrote songs for triathletes?

“Here I am, On the road again…”

No one understands this more than endurance athletes.   Our world has two seasons – race season and training season.

As 2016 race season draws to a close we want to congratulate TYB athletes on a spectacular season that spanned from “Where It All Begins” on Parris Island in March to the Emerald Coast for IMFL in November and all points in between.

“Here I go playing the star again,  turn the page…”

TYB Coaching is excited to coach and prepare our family of current and new athletes for a fantastic 2017.

TYB Coaching announces that we will again hold our Triathlon 101 Clinics.   Look for upcoming details on clinics in both Upstate South Carolina and we will be announcing our first clinics in Atlanta, Georgia!

We will host a preview of the course that will be used for year number two of the highly successful Mountains to Mainstreet Half Iron Distance Triathlon in April.

Stay tuned for more on that as we await final course details from the organizers.

Additionally, TYB Coaching will hold the 4th annual IM Augusta 70.3 Preview Weekend on the weekend of August 26-27th.    Preview the course that will be raced on September 25th in the premiere North America IM70.3 event with over 3500 entrants every year.

The TYB race calendar has been updated, so pick your races and we will help you make 2017 the year that changed everything.

“There I am, upon the stage….”

As endurance athletes,  YOUR 2017 success begins today.   It starts with your thoughts and preparation NOW.   Do the heavy lifting NOW.   Be accountable NOW.   Be spectacular in 2017.  Let us help you!

We Want Your Race Shirts!

Those old race shirts that are sitting in the corner of your closet OR in a stack under your bed… we WANT them!

If you have any old race shirts that you are not using anymore, bring them by the TYB Studio!  Keeping it local and being part of the community, we are trying to do a little decorating throughout the TYB Studio with a “Wall of Race Shirts”.

We have started it yesterday with a few shirts from various races – dating back to some early 2000s – and the goal is to keep those shirts coming in and get the race shirts on the all throughout the entire studio!

We have it going… but we need your help to keep it going and fill the wall!

Keeping it Going!

As we make our way into mid-November and the season starts to wind down, there STILL is racing happening!

Two of the Lowcountry TYB Athletes were at it this past weekend!

After going long the past few season, TYB Athlete Bernie has decided to shift the focus towards some short course racing – focusing on shorter races and speed!  Kicking off with a baseline test at the Hilton Head Bridge Run 5K this past weekend, Bernie flew going 24 and change, taking 6th Overall and finishing 1st AG!

Down the coast a bit, TYB Athlete Bubba took to MiamiMan – and because of some Achilles issues decided to do the Aquabike at the last minute.  That decision paid off as he beat his goal by 5 minutes AND qualified to race in Canada next year for Team USA.

The work continues and the fun continues!  Every day is a step in the process and every workout is another brick added on the foundation!

TYB Announces a Partnership with Southern Wesleyan University!

TYB Coaching is proud to announce a partnership between Southern Wesleyan University and TYB Coaching.  With the sport of Women’s Triathlon granted an “emerging sport” status by the NCAA, Southern Wesleyan will become the 13th NCAA School to compete in the sport of triathlon.  Starting to recruit now, Southern Wesleyan will begin racing and competing in the 2017 – 2018 school year.

TYB and Coach Jamie Church, will coach the Women’s Triathlon Team. We are excited to continue to work with ALL athletes via TYB Coaching – along with helping to build the triathlon program at SWU and working with collegiate varsity athletes.

TYB has always believed that endurance sports are a “lifestyle.” And, TYB is looking forward to starting the lifestyle early for the future collegiate athletes at SWU.  TYB is looking forward to providing ways to create synergy and community with the current TYB Team and the future SWU Triathlon Team through clinics, group workouts, community events and more!

“While continuing to work with our age group athletes via TYB Coaching, we are excited for the opportunity to work with the student athletes at Southern Wesleyan University.  It is an honor to be able to be on the ground floor with the start of the womens varsity program at SWU.  While we are ecstatic about coaching the team, we are even more excited about sharing in the vision of SWU while engaging with the student body and the community through the sport of triathlon.”
