You hear stuff every day about things you can do to stay injury-free and keep swimming, cycling and running consistently. But, be honest, do you actually do this stuff?

Back in 2011 I was nominated in 4 different categories and still scored the goose egg. I did however leave that night with 4 pairs of Minnesota Tri News socks, which were apparently a consolation prize for setting the record for the most nominations with zero wins...
