Race weekend started at 6am Saturday morning for me as we pulled away from home and started the long 4+ hour drive to Galena. The horror stories about a couple of the climbs on the road race course was on my mind the entire trip up. This was a race I was trying to peak for in my training so I was pretty pumped to get started.

Toughman Indiana Half

posted on Aug 08 2013 by Wild Card

On Saturday, June 1, I raced the inaugural Toughman Indiana Half, a 70.3 mile, half-iron distance triathlon (http://www.americamultisport.com/toughman-half). The venue was in Richmond, Indiana, just a few miles from the Ohio line. The morning weather looked ominous. We were under a tornado watch until 5:30. Heavy storm clouds rolled in around 6:15 and dropped heavy rainfall for about 15 minutes, but it mostly blew over by the 7 am race start, save for an occasional spell of light rain.

Ron Hoyne:

I raced in the Thunder in the Valley Olympic Distance Triathlon (800K swim/40K bike/5.0 mile run) in Terre Haute, IN.  I finished 40th out of 136 overall and 3rd out of 10 in my age group with a time of 2:01.46.  I was seventh after the swim (8:17), 20th after the no draft bike leg (24.8 miles @ 21.6 mph) and 40th after the 5.0 mile run (40:42).  The 25 year old professional winner completed the race in 1:39.02.  I was rocking the Wildcard colors and will forward a picture if any show up on the race website.

Calvin's Challenge : 12 hours in Springfield Ohio

posted on Aug 08 2013 by Wild Card

While the criterion racers are busy in Champaign-Urbana, the ultra racers are not holding back.  Paul Dunklau, Martin and Jay headed east on Friday night.  Temperatures were nice, but Calvin’s Challenge 2013 was a tough loop on the south and east stretches, with 16-20 mph winds blowing all day.  About 200 racers reported to the start line at 7:30 AM, including favorite Collin Johnson, who wields a dangerous combination of youthful acceleration and mature stamina.  Within minutes, the pattern of accelerate-decelerate whittled the race from 200 to a lead group of 6, including Jay and Martin.

We took off from home on Friday afternoon after dropping my daughter off for her class trip to Italy. About 3 hours on the road my wife and I arrived at Hillsboro Illinois. Our hotel (the red rooster inn http://www.redroosterinn.net/) was kind of cool if you like antiques and old houses. An old style hotel with actual keys for your room and real furniture!
