Time for the Dam Tri!

After the Historic Hurricane Matthew made its ways up the Atlantic Coast and through the Carolinas, the team at Set Up Events made the smart move to postpone The Dam Tri, originally scheduled last weekend, to tomorrow, Saturday, October 15th.  Always a great race and the last race in South Carolina Triathlon Series – a great way to end the year with the team at Set Up Events!

Because of the postponement of the race, the TYB Crew originally scheduled to race now shakes out a bit differently to the current race ready crew!

TYB Athletes Sandy and Jennifer both race with two things in mind – securing their overall wins in Open and Masters Open respectively – and keeping the legs open and ready to roll for next weekend at Ironman North Carolina 70.3.  TYB Athlete Frankie keeps the racing going as he does throughout the year and looks forward to a great race while TYB Athletes Ashley and Vicki open in up in their first race of this distance and first open water swim.  Finally, TYB Athlete Kimi keeps it going and looks to continue her string of podium appearances in the Aquabike – and then maybe time for some triathlon racing next year!

Enjoy the day, have fun, and race YOUR race!

It is Finally Here!

The BIG day is FINALLY here!  After signing up almost a year ago, the day has finally come!

With their minds on the prize for months and months, lots of quality training and time invested, the LONG COURSE RACE DAY IS HERE!

TYB Athletes will be throughout the Southeast and the midwest this weekend!

Going SUPER LONG at Ironman Chattanooga are TYB Athletes Kristina, Gary, Keith, Chad, Peter, Britton and Coach Mark.  Going LONG at the Augusta 70.3 are TYB Athletes Barry, Lynn, Rob, Jason, Tricia, Al, Tamy and Coach David.  Also, keeping the Long Course going is TYB Athlete Bernie racing in Oklahoma at the ITU Long Course World Championships!

You have made it through the hard part – the training, the time invested, the heat – and now is the fun part – RACE DAY!  Enjoy the day, trust your training, and RACE YOUR RACE!

Adding more Fuel to the Fire!

Triathlon is made up of three sports – the Swim, the Bike, and the Run.  Over the course the time – and with quality and defined workouts – athletes will get fitter and faster and achieve their goals.

The higher the quality of workouts – and mixed with the proper amount of rest and recovery – the more efficient, fitter, and faster the athlete will become.

For consistent workouts, it becomes about more than only the aspects of swim, bike, and run – it also becomes about proper nutrition.  Not only the everyday nutrition, but also nutrition DURING the workouts.

Because of this, TYB currently stocks a few nutritional items – Carb Boom, E-Gel, Picky Bars, and now…  Accel Gel and 2nd Surgeboth from Pacific Health Labs

What makes Accel Gel unique is that it is the only gel that contains the patented 4:1 ratio of carbs and protein and it uses a combination of three carbohydrates to maximize energy transport and uptake into muscle cells. This novel combination guaranties instant energy when needed.

With 2nd Surge, it is the first all natural energy gel specifically formulated to delay the onset of both muscle and brain fatigue. The proprietary formula of rapidly acting carbohydrates, proteins, caffeine and antioxidants are proven to:

• Increase the delivery of cortical nutrients to brain and muscle cells

• Maintain metabolic energy needs

• Inhibit the release of fatigue signals in the brain
• Reduce muscle damage, an important trigger for release of fatigue signals
• Gives you added energy when you need it most

 

Now in stock at the TYB Studio or shipping throughout the United States, get your Accel Gel  ($25.99 for a case of 24 gels or $1.50 per gel) and 2nd Surge ($12.99 for a case of 8 gels or $2 per gel).  Current TYB Athletes receive a 15% discount.

Order your Accel Gel and 2nd Surge NOW!
