Looking Back at a Kicka$$ Year...

suzie-and-nephew.gifBy Suzie Fox (via Facebook)

Day to day I am really hard on myself, but looking back, 2014 was a pretty kick a$$ year! I'm an aunt! So many hours of training that I planned for others, so many miles I have raced & logged with great friends, so many wonderful family memories, so much nephew love! Instead of FB picking my top photos of 2014, I picked my single favorite picture of 2014 & my top 5 moments:


5. Crossing the finish line of Ironman #3 in March in Cabo San Lucas as 6th amateur female overall


4. Crossing the finish line of Ironman #4 in Sept in Madison, WI as 3rd amateur female overall


3. Taking my nephew to the MLB home run derby, all-star game & NLCS with my entire family...

2015 - Bring It!

I hope everyone is enjoying a fun filled holiday season. It’s been an action packed few weeks for me, but it's finally slowing down enough to share some exciting news for the upcoming year.

New Focus: KY and I will be moving to Switzerland soon, and to simplify the transition and to grow with this new opportunity, I decided to leave my Program Manager job with Life Time Fitness. For the past few years, alongside Troy Jacobson, we built a strong and successful endurance coaching division as part of the Life Time TRI TEAM brand. Although it’s tough to leave Life Time in the midst of exciting initiatives, especially the Commit to TRI partnership with Ironman, I’m extremely jazzed to ....

Final Stretch Rocks! Possible Minnesota Honorees...

452.gifGREAT NEWS FROM FINAL STRETCH - The MTN Guys want to thank our great friends at Final Stretch for adjusting their 2015 Multisport Schedule. If you check their website (LINK) you'll notice some great changes. You'll see that they will be producing the iconic Gear West Duathlon on May 17. Also, they have moved the North Mankato Tri from late June to early August. The biggest relocation, though, concerns the Waseca 1/3 and Sprint, which had been contested on the same day at the Chisago Half (now Toughman Half) for the last several years. It has been moved to the August 23. These changes will ease conjestion and, hopefully, help races to achieve satisfying attendance levels.

 

- POST SEASON HONORS - Triathlete Magazine and the ITU have named St. Paul's Gwen Jorgenson as their 2014 female ATHLETE OF THE YEAR. No surprise there, huh? There's a very good chance that Gwen will not be our state's only honoree. Though it won't be known for several weeks, it's likely that some of our state's best amateur tri and ...

Operation Chlorination...

I've known since early Nov that something was very wrong with my left foot. In 2011 & 2012 I had pain across the top but it was manageable with regular ART treatments & in Oct 2012 it went away until mile 16 of Ironman Wisconsin this year. 15 days off running following the IM bought me about another month of running including a 10 mile Halloween fun run in costume, but on Nov 6th the pain reached a whole new level and my foot swelled up like a sausage. Things hit rock bottom on Tues Nov 11th when I could no longer walk or put any weight on my foot and x-rays on Nov 14th confirmed a 3rd metatarsal stress fracture. I was trying to hang onto some fitness for the 6,000M USATF MN XC Championships on Nov 15th otherwise my season was over, but that was obviously a no go....
