      KARTomorrow is the start of a 24 week plan. Good luck to all of you. Hope to see you out on the roads, chasing the dream...


        KARI hope everyone had a Safe and Happy New Years. Today was an early 4 mile run, followed by a 30m swim, later 30 min weights. Good start to 2018. 10 months til the Big Dance...


          KARMerry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, everybody...


            KARHi EnduraDad, glad to hear you're in for next year! I'm taking your advice and starting the leg strengthening/conditioning/endurancebuilding/hill climbing early. As you said, it takes time to build what's necessary for this course....


            • KARand to be able to "run" a marathon after. Sorry, not me for the 300Ex, I've already set up races for post GFT. For now, numerous half's, 10k's, maybe a 5k, and a January mile open water swim...first tri for '18 will be 3/11.12/6/2017

            EnduradadMy little twins are 21 now. To big to carry across the finish line. So in 2018 I'm going to bring the 3 grandkids and get the next photo.


              EnduradadSo KAR and Clearwater Pete are going to GFT again. I'll be there too, only I'm using it as a training day for the 300 Xtreme. Yes, I know that makes me crazy. Any chance you want to join me?


                KARCongrats to all finishers, looks like it was another grueling day, a hard earned finisher medal.. For those who didn't make it, will we see you next year?


                • KARBtw, I'm already signed up for next year, really looking forward to the training. This will be my 8th. Next up: running season!! Whoo-hoo!! Enjoy the off-season everyone, you earned it.10/30/2017

                KARGood luck to all participants for the GFT. Training is over, all that's left is to enjoy the day and get to the finish line. Run your race, stay within yourself, and most importantly, stick to your nutrition plan.
