ISM Pros Check in.
Some pics of Pro Eric Limkemann killing it in a virtual race. You definitely get bessed dressed in our book, E. Nice Team kit and sweat towel.
Below, fellow Professionals and sisters, Bec and Laurel Wassner check in from Tucson Training Camp. Also in attendance were fellow ISM athletes, Amanda Lovato, Sarah Haskins, Nate Korteum, Tyler Lord, and Sam McGlone.
Hello. We hope everyone is doing well and not too snowed in! As always, thank you for your support. Here is our latest update and a few photos from Tucson.
Laurel and Bec Wassner
We just wrapped up a very HARD but successful 3 week training camp with the Cliff English Coaching Elite squad in Tucson, Arizona. A highlight was riding from the desert to the top of snowcapped Mt. Lemmon. Bec made it to the famed cookie shop in under 1 hour 52 minutes, which we hear is pretty good...for a girl. We swam outside everyday at the U of Arizona pool, averaging almost 30k meters per week. Bec even set a new personal best (after 30 years of swimming) during a "get-out" swim, swimming the 50 meter freestyle in 28.4. Both of us rode more than we ever have, getting a taste of what it is like to train for long distance races. Also, while we were here I got the chance to use my camera and photographed a travel story on Tucson for an upcoming issue of Triathlete magazine.
We will be opening the 2010 season with the Roslyn Sanchez Triathlon on March 7 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. This is an Olympic distance race that benefits the San Jorge Children's Foundation and the Casa Cuna of San Juan. We're excited to participate in this unique race and to help raise awareness for these two organizations which do so much for children with cancer. We're also looking forward to racing alongside actress Roselyn Sanchez and what promises to be a star-studded field. I will be racing solo and Bec will be participating in a celebrity relay. Stay tuned for photos from the weekend!
