December 2013 Poem

The following poem was penned by Sarah Speicher, who completed the October 2013 Virginia Double ANVIL. She's a poet and we didn't know it.

ANVILIZATION

Twisting and turning all through the night
Heart beat pounding through the invasive fright
Rising to eat hours before daylight
Foam rolling and stretching to avoid the dreaded tight

Consider Helping Race Staff out or be a Support Crew for a racer

Are you thinking of tackling the Double or Triple ANVIL Triathlon. Have you upped your training which should consist of some overnight training and sleep deprivation. What else might be invovled in a successful finish for you? Think about coming out and helping either the race management OR crew for an athlete. Not all athletes can bring their own support crew, usually it's a money issue with having to travel a long distance.

But either way - you will see how the race unfolds, what atheltes are doing right, do wrong. Will answer some of your questions and make you think of other things you hadn't thought of. Email Steve Kirby at steve@USAUltraTri.com for more information and to be added to the list.

   

 

 

Florida Athletes Racing in 2015

 
 

12 January 2015 ~ IMPORTANT UPDATE -- We did get a 7th lane for the pool so that allows us to have 49 athletes swim/enter the race. We are keeping the solo count at 42 athletes and will allow 7 teams to enter the race. If we don't have seven teams registered by 1 February, we will open those remaining spots to the solo athletes. We have 41 solo athletes registered at the moment for the race with 3 on the wait list (1 person just dropped out), I am waiting on the first of them to commit. If someone else wants to be put on the wait list, please let me know. There might be some people drop out, who knows.

The athletes below will be competing (or expressed their intent to compete) in 2015. If they have an asterisk (**) before and after their name, that means they have registered and paid for the race. If there is only one asterisk (*), means they are pretty serious, more than just a dream - a wish, but haven't registered yet. Race Dates are Mar 6 - Mar 8, 2015.

Good luck to all!
