South Beach Triathlon Race Report –

Ahh… MIAMI! The city’s colors, culture, energy and beachfront simply can’t be beat. Needless, to say I didn’t think twice about signing up for the South Beach Triathlon back in December. I knew I’d be making a couple of trips down to Miami to visit my coach, so why not do a race?!  ...

When you are in your best form in the pool and run and best position on the bike you should  feel as though you are on a slight downhill....

Big Heart. Big Mind....

emy_face.pngED. Many of you know EMY EVERHART. She's a wonderful person and an accomplished triathlete. A Rookie of the Year nominee in 2014, she picked up her first career win at the Omaha Aquabike last year.

We recently learned that Emy is a mental health specialist, a "Clinal Social Worker/Therapist" to be precise. We read her professional bio on PsychologyToday.com and were very impressed. Here it is:

 

Sometimes in life we can feel like we have no control over what is happening, the paths our relationships are taking, or what the future might have in store for us. We can get to a place where we are stuck in a continuous cycle of negative thinking, gloomy feelings, and ineffective behaviors. I have experience providing therapy to individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, grief/loss, life transitions, relationship changes/separation, substance use issues, stress management, academic challenges, chronic illness, sexuality/gender identity issues, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia spectrum, and life balance....

"Definitely a Film Worth Seeing"...

“Flatline To Finish Line” is a totally Ironman-centric documentary that is at times both massively uplifting and a huge freaking bummer—definitely a film that’s worth seeing, regardless of your IM tattoo status."

Lately there seems to be a spate of triathlon movies rising to the surface. Four months ago, Triathlete Editor-in-Chief Erin Beresini stumbled upon a floating turd in the form of “Run To Me”—a disastrously tone-deaf attempt by Lifetime to (finally?) try to cash in on this whole triathlon thing. Clearly, no one involved in this movie spent any time speaking to an actual triathlete, but then again Lifetime sometimes sets a pretty low bar anyway.

 

A month later, Erin hit cinematic paydirt when she watched another fictional triathlon movie aptly named, “TRI.” In her review, she called it “the award-winning, feel-good triathlon film of the year [that] gets our sport right.” So at least we’ve got that going for us, which is nice.
