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.

“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!

2017 Augusta 70.3 Starts NOW!

Earlier than ever, the crew at the Augusta 70.3 will open registration for the 2017 Augusta 70.3 tomorrow, Tuesday, October 18th at 12:00pm.

To register, proceed to the Augusta 70.3 site and click HERE

Always a great race – and a perfect race for the first time Half Ironman athlete OR the athlete looking to PR at the 70.3 Distance, Augusta 70.3 is one of the biggest races in the world – with it being the largest Half Ironman in North America.

With a typical (although not this year) Wetsuit Legal Swim, then a rolling and quick bike ride (back to the normal bike course) and a flat two loop run course through Downtown Augusta, the race sets up well for all levels of athletes – and also offers a great vantage point for your family and friends to spectate.

Over the past few years, TYB has had over 30 athletes cross the line at Augusta 70.3.  Some first time 70.3 athletes and some working hard towards their Personal Bests!  Along with the fun finishes, TYB has also hosted an Augusta 70.3 Preview Weekend in late August each of the past three years – and are looking forward to the 4th Preview Weekend in 2017!

Typically, Augusta 70.3 does not cap out in a day – or even a week.  But, if you are considering racing Augusta 70.3 in 2017, we would encourage you to sign up now and secure your spot on race day for 2017!
