Ironman Arizona Race Report - Sunday morning we woke up knowing it was going to be a big day. Alexa and I met my mom and sister down in the lobby at 4:45am and headed out to the venue. We arrived in great time and were off to check gear bags with the rest of the Stallworths by 5:15. After getting all of our special needs bags set and all nutrition put into the right areas, we headed to the bikes to get everything race-ready. Tires were pumped up, nutrition was set, power meters calibrated, it was time to go! We went to the Smile Train tent for warm-up and to see family before heading to the start. After a quick snack and some warm-up, we gave the loved ones a hug goodbye and Alexa, Ayla, and I headed to the swim.


Ayla and Alexa are great swimmers so they weaved in and out of people to the front of the swim start. I had been improving steadily on the swim so I went with them hoping to stay on Alexa’s feet for as long as possible. After the...

Terror Trot 10K Race Report - For some reason I thought it would be a really good idea to hop into a 10k a week into a really hard month-long bike block. Turns out, one: it was super fun in a more-painful-than-IM way. Two: it maybe wasn’t the best idea but yolo?! And three: it meant hanging out and running with a couple Coeur Sports teammates, and I couldn’t pass that up!


The race itself – the Terror Trot – was small and low key (most Twin Citians were probably running the Monster Dash). So low key, in fact, that when the RD yelled GO!, it took a couple seconds to register that the race was starting! 


It was redline from the start, as I settled into sub-7 pace – a pace I wasn’t sure I could hold since running’s been minimal with zero speed or tempo work since IMMT. But the first three miles ticked by quickly and felt good, so I figured I’d try holding it for the...

By almost anyone's definition, Julie Moulton is crazy.
The Brainerd High School graduate has taken her passion for ultra-trail running to the ultimate level. From Oct. 12-16, she completed the Moab 240 Endurance Run, a 238.3-mile, five-day foot race through some of Utah's most beautiful and challenging terrain....

Ironman Wisconsin Race Report - Hi Everyone!....I wrote a guest post for this site last year sharing my running through pregnancy and the start of my return-to-running postpartum, (re-read that post HERE!) Remember how I ended being first female overall during the Ironman Wisconsin Friends and Family 5K at only six-weeks postpartum? Well, that turned out to just be the beginning of my Ironman success and apparently it lit a flame to complete an actual Ironman. Well, it happened on September 9, 2018!


Below is my race recap for Ironman Wisconsin 2018!


Swim


Goal: 1:15 on a good day, 1:20 otherwise


Actual: 1:14:36 (1:45/100yds) 22/61 in age group. Very middle of the pack pace! ...

Ted Wins Again!

TED TREISE did not set a 70.3 personal best yesterday in toasty Waco, Texas. But he might have, had the swim not been canceled. His 3:37:34 over the 69.1 mile distance put him more than two minutes ahead of rest of the men's amateur field. Had he gotten his pro card, which he will likely get in 2019, he would have finished 14th among the 23 professional men who went the distance.

Ironman Wisconsin Race Report - Before I launch into my version of events, I would like to give a massive thank you to everyone who made this day possible for me: my coach, who never gives up on my crazy self; my husband, who is always there for me, checks all my gear, and makes all my food - literally could not have made it this far without your unwavering support; to my parents who devote their entire summer to following us around to all our different races, and are such devoted support crew that they never even question any of our decisions, they just get in the car and are prepared for whatever we throw at them; and to my bestie Kaitlyn and her husband Alex for always making the trek out to all the races they can; and to everyone in my tri support crew - you all have touched my life in ways I can't explain, but I'm beyond grateful that you did. Your support is beyond appreciated.

Ironman Wisconsin was the perfect way to cap off my 2018 triathlon season. It offers such a remarkable course that is lined with dedicated volunteers and spectators. What more could you want than a whole day of running around in lycra with people shouting how amazing you are, and getting handed free food? Only hearing "YOU ARE AN IRONMAN" from the man, the myth, the legend - Mike Reilly. That's what....
