Weekend Race Report-
Local hero Jocelyn McCauley put on a great show at Vichy 70.3, taking a close second to prior Duathlon World Champion Ellma Pallant.
Events We're Looking Forward To:
The 70.3 World Championships is September 7th (women's event) and 8th (men's event) in Nice, France. The pro field is once again staked, with only 2018 Champion Jan Frodeno missing from the men's field.
New shop hours starting next week:
Training Thoughts and Updates-
- An interesting study for all parents: this fascinating study shows "elite" athletes tend to train less in their early childhood and specialize in their sport at a later age than athletes who compete at a "near elite" level.
- Another study highlighting the importance of getting 8+ hrs of sleep for the endurance athlete.
Gear That Caught Our Attention-
Speaking of sleep: I was recently gifted a 'wakeup light alarm clock
'. If you hate the jolt of a traditional alarm clock you'll love this gentle yet effective device.
