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...

Hits Sarasota 2021 Race Report.
After the way IMFL ended I knew I needed to race again, to gain experience (this was my second 70.3), hopefully have a good race experience, and gain confidence. So I decided to enter Hits Sarasota. A couple of my athletes were already signed up to do the 70.3 and Olympic distances, so I thought this would be a great race to do too!

Race morning:
It was 42 degrees at the 8am start. The wind was relatively calm compared to the couple days before the race. The sun was out! It was going to be a beautiful day to race! I was a little concerned about being too cold on the bike so I brought a long sleeve shirt to wear over my kit and put my toe warmers on my bike shoes.

I quickly got my gear situated in transition, got on my wetsuit and then kept warm in the car until race time.

Swim: The swim was two laps counterclockwise in a rowing basin. Last year’s swim was a bit long at 2300 yds but they shortened it this year. I’m not sure why. Garmin devices showed different distances but averaged at about 1500 yds. We lined up on a small beach about 5 minutes before the start and went off two at a time off a doc. I was shaking and shivering as we waited for the start and couldn’t feel my feet already! ...
