• Colorado Hero Ellen Hart reflects on 2015 season for ESPN

    Submitted by Aaron Adams on January 17th, 2016

    One of 303Tri’s greatest allies and most revered athletes, Ellen Hart, is currently featured on ESPN, reflecting on her five world titles in 2015, achieved despite injury. Ellen’s well-known path – overcoming anorexia and bulimia, in addition to her drive to win and competitiveness – has now brought her to a place of balance, and peace: “Now that I’m happy and healthy, I thought, ‘Oh dear, I probably can’t perform well any more,’ because you sort of have this image that the driven people are the ones that really excel. Then I realized that I could run from a place of joy and gratitude. It truly feels better than some of the driven-ness and needing to always prove something to myself and other people.”

            Submitted by Jen Findley on January 12th, 2016

            For many of us, running on the treadmill during the winter is a gloomy prospect.

            USA Triathlon Coach of the Year Mike Ricci, founder and head coach for D3 Multisport has some important tips on dressing properly for winter training.
