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 Racing Continues!

As we roll into the first weekend of September, the racing continues throughout the Southeast and throughout the world!

First off, TYB Athletes Sandy O’Keefe and Jennifer Long travel to Cozumel next week for the ITU Age Group World Championships.  After qualifying last year, Sandy and Jennifer are looking forward to representing USA at the ITU World Championships!

In North Carolina, TYB Athletes Tina Rich and Randy Parks race the always fun White Lake Half Ironman.  Tina and Randy both are looking for some fun in White Lake.  Tina will use this race as a “recovery style” weekend as she continues to prepare for Ironman North Carolina while Randy, coming off of Lake Logan Half 5 weeks ago, continues to use the long distance races to experiment and figure out his perfect race scenario.

Also, across the country, TYB Athlete Jimmy Bagnola races in Santa Cruz at Ironman 70.3 Santa Cruz.  Ready to roll, Jimmy looks for a solid day of swim, bike and run!

In South Carolina, TYB Athlete Frankie Valle heads down to the coast and races the new South Carolina Triathlon Series TriFecta Sprint Triathlon.  Keeping it short and sweet and fast, Frankie continues to prepare for the end of the season Ironman Florida.

In any sport or competition there is the penultimate contest that makes a statement to the world that you are the best of the best.

In triathlon,  where Ironman is the standard by which all triathlons are measured,  these are the Ironman World Championships.   This year the Ironman 70.3 Championship is held in Queensland, Australia.

TYB Coaching is proud to have a TYB athlete, Robert Vanderburg competing in the 2016 IM70.3 World Championship.  Robert punched his ticket to the Big Dance at IM70.3 Chattanooga! Good Luck Robert!   Race your race and have fun!
