Challenge Miami 2021 race recap. 

Challenge North America and Challenge Family creates world class triathlon events and I highly suggest when planning your race schedule you add Challenge events into that. 

I loved working with the Challenge North America group, from Caitlin, Bill Christy and all the staff! And then Jillian the race director she is simply the best so much love for her! 

As the Business Development Manager for Speed Hound. ( thespeedhound.com ) I built a relationship with Challenge for Speed Hound to be the recovery sponsor. We set up a pro-athlete recovery lounge for all the pro-athletes. We also had a recovery lounge in the expo area for the age group athletes. This was all very successful and the word is out and people are loving Speed Hound recovery systems and say we are...

Hi MTN,

What a crazy year it's been.  I remember thinking in March 2020 that our summer / racing schedule probably would be a little different..... but I didn't think that pretty much all the races would be cancelled!

I was really hoping to do a Half Ironman last summer....So I decided to do one with my husband (and have the grandparents watch the kids).  It was a humbling experience.  I had an 8 min lead after the swim and extended that to an 11 min lead after the bike.  When we started the run, my legs were pretty tired (probably from biking too hard) and I started to walk / run at about mile 3.  By mile 8, I hobbled to a stop at the side of the road as my legs completely cramped up (and I couldn't move).  I needed to get a ride back to his parents' cabin as my legs would seize up every time I tried to bend them!  ...
