Eclectic Sporting History...

By Shyanne McGregor (shyzamironwoman.com)

For my first blog post, I thought I’d tell you a little about me….but where to start? Here it goes. I was born and raised in Duluth, Minnesota, went to college here and married my husband here. We are raising our three kids here too. I work part time as a doctor of physical therapy.

Since this is mostly about my training and triathlon life I’ll give you some background on my athletic life–It’s eclectic. I competed in figure skating for a couple years. When that got too expensive, I started and later competed in dance. When that got to be too much I tried volleyball and softball for a couple years. I joined the swim team in 7th grade. I swam competitively through high school and didn’t swim again until two years ago. I also ran track in junior high. One of my biggest regrets was not running track in high school. I didn’t think I could handle both the swim team and track at the same time. I also played hockey in junior high and high school. My best friend played and wanted me to play. I could skate so why not?! I enjoyed hockey, but my heart was in swimming....

YOUNG LIFE TRIATHLON RACE REPORT - SATURDAY MARKED THE 228TH DAY OF 2020. A YEAR WE CAN ALL AGREE HAS SUCKED MORE THAN THE WORLDS MOST POWERFUL VACUUM! MY TRIATHLON SEASON LASTED A BLISSFUL 1:10:33 AT THE YOUNGLIFE TRIATHLON IN DETROIT LAKES. MY SUMMER IS USUALLY FILLED WITH OVER A DOZEN TRIATHLONS AND NUMEROUS MARATHONS AND IRONMAN RACES. IRONICALLY, SATURDAYS RACE WAS ALSO MY 228TH ACTIVITY ACCORDING TO MY GARMIN. THOSE 228 ACTIVITIES EQUAL OUT TO BE OVER 2,070 MILES. I AM NO TRAINING EXPERT BUT THAT SEEMS TO BE AN EXTREME AMOUNT OF OVERTRAINING FOR A SPRINT TRIATHLON! ...

"The Volunteers Are the Best"....

YOUNG LIFE TRIATHLONN RACE REPORT - Carin and I spent a few days in Detroit Lakes this past weekend, 8/14-8/16.

Always love going to this area. I did the Younglife Triathlon for the third time. I've done the Olympic distance twice before. This year they had just one distance, a Sprint, which was a 500m swim (my Garmin measured about 900 yds), 20k bike, 5k run.

The organizers never fail to put on a great race! The water is so clear in Big/Little Detroit Lake, the bike route circles the lakes, and the run is a nice little out-n-back. The volunteers are the best at the YL Tri too. They are fully engaged in making sure you are on course and I don't think anyone gets by them without being cheered on....
