Here are my final thoughts on helping you plan your Ironman Mont Tremblant trip: Transportation: If you get a rental car or drive, it is easy to get around. If not, there are public buses that run regularly. If you are planning to fly into Montreal and are on a budget, you may want to […]
Welcome to TriWivesClub!
The recent Ironman Mont Tremblant race brought up an issue we have rarely thought about after all these years: the toll these races have on the body and soul of both the athlete and spectator. My triathlete is hurting for the first time after 10 full-distance races and man, I hurt, too. My feet, oh […]
If you are reading this, big congratulations must be in order to your triathlete on making it to Kona and to you for getting a great vacation in Hawaii. We’ve all been at least twice and it remains awe-inspiring. From the banquets to the underwear run to the parade to the energy in the town […]
The Ironman 70.3 World Championship race is actually located in the Henderson and Lake Las Vegas areas and not near the strip. This means you will need to have a car to get to and from the airport as well as to get around race day, especially since transition areas T1 and T2 are in […]

Don’t feel bad if you aren’t vegan, organic, gluten-free, or even remotely fat, sugar or preservative paranoid. Don’t feel self- conscience if you don’t eat enough fruit and bright vegetables.
