Congratulations to all of the athletes who raced this past weekend. It was a very tough day, but they all finished. Special congrats to Ana Caminas on pushing through and dominating the distance. No matter how sick you… from projecting vomit during the swim and the bike…. Donnie; or Fitz fighting congestion all week… the dug deep and finished with a bang. Regardless how many flats you have, losing your watch and being attacked by people in the water… Lina finished. Despite flying off his handlebars in an aid station, David Berlant pushed through the pain and finished the race.
These are just a few stories… can’t wait to hear all of them!

The weather is going to be very cold in the morning. Expected the unexpected to occur and be prepared. Please keep yourself layered and when you feel that it is warm, take some off. Keep in mind that the longer you are out there, the colder it will get at night. Therefore, please put a long sleeve in your special needs bag.
In the next three weeks, we will be doing a primary bike focus. If the bike is your weakest out of all the three sports, make sure you do not miss any sessions. Enclosed, you will find the breakdown for the next three weeks.
There are several athletes racing IM Florida. If you are in the area, please cheer for them:
