Peter Crescenti is a triathlete and friend of many in the Boulder area. He’s coming back in June to race the Boulder 70.3. He was the first man diagnosed with prostate cancer to cross an IRONMAN finish line for ZERO – The End of Prostate Cancer 5 years ago. This organization is the exclusive charity partner for this years events, with 100 athletes working to raise $200,000 for awareness and research for this insidious disease.
Peter graciously shared his story with 303Triathlon. Read more about his journey and be sure to cheer him on next month! Read more

Sasha Underwood is an accomplished athlete and a 303 Ambassador.
Somewhere along the way, Sasha decided that giving back to the triathlon community was something that she wanted to pursue. And that she has done. Sasha has guided numerous sight impaired athletes through running events of all distances. She even taught a blind athlete to swim and guided him through the 2014 YOLO Sprint Triathlon. Read about it here.
This past weekend Sasha guided Kerry through the Colfax Half Marathon. Read all about their experience. Read more
The weather has been crazy this Spring to say the least. Races and events postponed, sometimes more than once, due to weather conditions or the aftermath of the weather.
In the past 10 days, both IRONMAN 70.3 St. George and IMTX both saw DNF rates over 25%. While these races are not the only ones to have been affected, they are certainly the most talked about.
I asked local coaches Eric Kenney of EK Endurance Coaching and Mike Ricci of D3 Multisport for some advice on how to race in less than ideal conditions.
