A memory not soon forgotten

Liz Sharpe - Friday, April 01, 2016 |
Memories are fickle and funny things. They come out of seemingly nowhere and strike both good and bad chords. My husband has one of the best memories I know. He won’t remember what I said five minutes ago, but he can remember a taste, smell, or feeling from a particular day in 1985. I’m often jealous of his nostalgic memories, but I’m just not built that way. Because of that, I was surprised this morning when a random memory from 2008 popped into my mind. I started triathlon in 2007 after a friend who had been racing for a f Read More

How to increase women's participation...it's not an easy road

Liz Sharpe - Thursday, February 11, 2016 |
Last month, the triathlon industry held its annual Triathlon Business International conference for industry insiders. It’s a three day seminar aimed to connect people in the business and to discuss the current and future state of our sport. We didn’t get a chance to participate this year, but we heard that several key points came up time and again. Two included the sale of World Triathlon Corporation (Ironman) to the Chinese owned Wanda Group and the increase in number of races but the flat or declining levels of participation. Th Read More

Great Tri Blogs

Liz Sharpe - Sunday, January 03, 2016 |
Triathlon can be a tricky sport, not only because it takes time to learn the ins and outs of our multi-layered sport, but also because it's tough to find the balance of training, racing, living, and thriving. Oftentimes, people on social media make it all look so easy. In truth, we know that what is presented publicly is not necessarily what is lived privately. With that in mind, when we're trolling Facebook, Instagram, and blogs, we need to get real and take some of what we see with a grain of salt. That said, the many, many tri-inspired b Read More

Back for it's third consecutive year, the TriBella Triathlon has become one of the most popular women's only races in Colorado.

Registration has opened for the second annual TriBella Women’s Triathlon. Held Saturday June 28th at Cherry Creek State Park, the race features two distances: sprint and super sprint.
