Registration has opened for the Wildflower Triathlon to be held in May 2015. You can register at www.tricalifornia.com. The rate will increase December 1st so register now to get a lower entry fee. I have reserved a house that will sleep 10 people for this event. The cost will be $150/person for the weekend. There are only 10 spots available and if you would like one of the spots please respond to this e-mail and I will reserve a spot for you.
2015 Race Season
In 2005 I had a vision of creating a coaching company that catered to endurance athletes and helped them accomplish greatness in the sport of triathlon. It’s been 10 years since the establishment of Durapulse Performance Company and I have coached hundreds of triathletes during that time to great success. I would like to celebrate the past 10 years and the next 10 years with an amazing 2015 season.
2015 will also be the 10 year anniversary of Ironman Arizona, a race that I did that inaugural year back in April of 2005. Ironman Arizona will be the focus race for Durapulse in 2015. I want to create a super team with every intention for each individual I coach to conquer Ironman by finishing with one or all of the following: a personal best time, standing upon the podium, and receiving the highly coveted Ironman World Championship spot for 2016. This team will follow a specialized plan to accomplish these specific goals. The group, coached and led by one who desires the same goals for himself while leading his team, will train together daily, weekly, and monthly preparing themselves to accomplish greatness. We will push each other, encourage each other, and celebrate our accomplishments together.
I have already started programming the 2015 season with training to begin January 1st. The first major event of the season will be the Wildflower Triathlon on May 1-3. Registration is now open for Wildflower at http://www.tricalifornia.com/register/. Register soon because the races fill in a couple months. There is a Half, Olympic, and off-road race over the weekend. No other event is like the Wildflower Triathlon. The course is challenging yet rewarding and the venue highlights why we do the sport, with friendly people, high profile athletes, and the feeling of accomplishment when finished. The majority of accommodations at Wildflower are camping tents but there are a few more comfortable options. I am looking into renting a house or a couple of RVs for this trip.
After Wildflower the team will take a mid season break before beginning the specialized training for Ironman in July. During the build up for Ironman in November there will be some races to help prepare for the big day, including Ironman Silverman 70.3 in October. This is the former Ironman 70.3 World Championship course in Henderson, Nevada.
I understand that there a some of you who have committed to other races in 2015. These races will be factored into your individual training plans. I still invite you to be a part of this super team to prepare for IMAZ as the main event in 2015.
If you want to accomplish greatness in 2015 and train with the best triathletes in Arizona then mark the above races on your calendar. I want to make a huge push in 2015 for my athletes. It’s my 10 year anniversary and I am going all in by committing to train along side all of you as a leader and an example. I want to prove that after racing for 15 years and at the ripe age of 37 with four kids and running a business that greatness can still be accomplished. With that said, I promise that my commitment is to my athletes and I will put their training above my own in an effort to help them reach their lofty goals in 2015. After 10 years of coaching I have learned many ways to get fit and fast but no gadget, philosophy, or method will get someone to the finish line the fastest or healthiest without smart hard work. There will be a lot of smart hard work in this program but the rewards will be more satisfying than ever.
Many have already committed to this “2015 Durapulse Super Team.” Are you in??
Mark your calendars for Friday January 16, 2014 for the Durapulse Team Party to kick off the 2015 season. This will be a family friendly party held at Power in Motion with food and activities..
