During the off season, it’s often hard for triathletes to decompress. We think of it this way. For 10 or 11 months of the year, they dedicate 2-6 hours a day training (at least ours do). Then, add the prep time and downloading training time, reading triathlon magazines, looking on-line at the newest gear and […]
Welcome to TriWivesClub!
Over the years, we have determined that buying gifts just to buy gifts simply doesn’t make sense. When your triathlete never really wants for anything, they are hard to buy for and let’s face it, they are always shopping for themselves, it makes it very difficult for us triwives/partners to come up with unique ideas.

We all know that having a triathlete partner can be both really awesome and really awful. From the time triathletes spend training to special eating needs to money spent to missed kids’ events to questionable vacation venues, it can really cause issues for a triwife. But, since living with a triathlete
As a triwife, I’ve lived a dream existence for the past year and a half. I’ve been on actual vacations where the word triathlon never came up in conversation. I’ve gotten to sleep in until 7am and had many nights of dinners and movies with my husband.
