IM Texas 70.3 Brushes with Greatness (or at least fastness)

One of the great things about triathlon is that often it's possible to share the course with the best athletes in the sport.  The pros are often accessible in the days leading up to the race.  Here's TFI athlete OB chatting with Tim O'Donnell two days before the race.  We're not sure which of Coach Rich's coaching pearls OB shared with Tim, but it worked - Tim won on Sunday.
Tim chats with one of the other pros during the prerace press conference.  The other pro came in 7th after getting nipped at the line.  (You may recognize him)  Chris Lieto didn't race, but was hanging around at the tent for his charity More than Sport, visiting with age groupers, raising awareness and funds to fight poverty.  Here he is checking out the press conference.

Tim O'Donnell coming in off the bike trailing Lance.
 Lance came in first off the bike.  They were headed back in on the out and back course as Coach Rich and OB were headed out.

O'Donnell preparing for one of the run courses many hairpin turns.

 Despite trailing the other top pros the camera stayed on Lance for the entire race.

If nothing else, having top pros there gave our "sherpas" something to do while we were riding 56 miles.

Partnership with Xterra Wetsuits

Tri For It! Coaching is stoked (we are talking wetsuits here so stoked seems appropriate) to announce its partnership with Xterra Wetsuits.  As a TFI athlete, friend of TFI (or frankly casual reader of this blog) you can get up to 60% off Xterra Wetsuits.  This includes, my personal favorite, the Vector Pro X2.

I've used this suit for 4 seasons and was blown away by the upper body flexibility.
