MTN has contacted the members of Team Minnesota 2013 and requested that they share their 2014 Racing Schedules. Today, we're giving you a glimpse of David Thompson's multisport plans.
Thompson, a pro since 2004, has been our state's all-time winningest triathlete. He's a prolific racer and his '14 calendar tells us that he hopes to race between 20 to 30 times. Whoa!

As we near the end of the triathlon season, it is a good time to take a step back and review your stress budget. To some this may sound like Accounting 101 and in many ways it is.

Stripping away everything-triathlon from my world, I’m a husband, father, full-time IT professional, coach, friend, son and brother. If I tried to squeeze and balance those components of my life inside a world dictated by triathlon, I’d lose and my bubble would pop. Triathlon only fits when there’s balance amongst those things that weigh heavier in importance....

Q: How are my hydration needs different in winter versus summer?
A: Many athletes I work with are surprised to learn that their sweat rate does not change just because the temperature drops. This is because sweat rate is determined by numerous factors, including fitness level, pace and acclimatization, not just ambient temperature.
