More snow is on the way… Not exactly music to the ears of a collegiate triathlete. With regionals less than 4 weeks away, there isn't any room for snow days or missed workouts. Successful, uninterrupted, training is one of the challenges of season that starts with an “A” race in March. Thankfully, the coaching, atmosphere, and attitude on the CU Boulder Triathlon team makes it easy to think of everyday as a training day, no matter how snowy or cold.
When the snow is coming down and the temperature dips below freezing, almost everyone will have second thoughts about rolling out of bed for that morning swim or layering up for the afternoon ride. It seems that most of the crazy few who don't identify with that statement happen to be on the team. For example, a couple weeks ago the temperature was quickly heading towards 30 degrees, there was a cold wind from the West, and snow was predicted to begin falling in the next two hours. . .
