Running in a Group (Team RWB)

Author: Lyle Ganz

Date: 07/05/16

Category: Training Triathletes Around Town

Running with this group has been great training for me. By being accountable to them, and myself, I show up and run on a consistent basis. The other thing is, in the warmer months, there is always someone (or two or three) willing to go long or short; fast, tempo, or recovery; or up for where the run takes you. You never have to come with a plan; but if you do, someone will join in.

My Nation’s Tri Journey

I’ve always said the only way I’d ever complete a triathlon was if “arm floaties” were standard operating equipment. Funny how life works because on September 13, 2015 I crossed the finish line at Nation’s Triathlon carrying an American flag & a new title: triathlete (no arm floaties though).
