This week: Late season racing and a thought on viewing work and training.

A short Tri Town Times newsletter this week:
- A large group of local triathletes competed at Ironman California in Sacramento yesterday. Congrats to all. Results.
- The *unofficial* amateur Ironman record was broken at Ironman California by triathlon coach Dr. Dan Plews. Dr. Plews run the popular triathlon website Endure IQ. His finishing time of 7hr 56min is simply incredible.
- Congrats to all participants at yesterday's 70.3 Arizona. The Ironman Group announced that this will be the last year for the late season race. Results.
- 2023 Ironman World Champion Sam Laidlow announced on Instagram that he is under investigation with the International Testing Agency for anti-doping violations. The ITA has not publicly commented on their investigation at this time. Laidlow appears to have removed his post as of this morning.
Events I'm looking forward to:
Boise triathletes consider blocking off the third weekend of November for free technique development:
- USA Masters Swimming is hosting a free stroke development clinic at the new Idaho Aquatic Center on Sunday, November 19th. Details and registration.
- Running coach Albert Lu will host a running clinic at Tri Town on Saturday, November 18th at 9am. Albert will demonstrate and explain how you may benefit from adopting the Pose running technique. Details and registration.
Thought that struck a chord:
Never let work be something that other people tell you to do.
Never let training be something that you have to do.
Your best performance happens when you embrace these as things you get to do.
Have a great week,
