New for 2018 we will offer a group training program for athletes racing IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant. This will be a fixed program leveraging our experience in coaching almost fifty successful IRONMAN finishes, which includes fifteen finishes on the IRONMAN Mont-Tremblant course!
The group training program is a 30 week starting January 15th and will be designed for beginner to intermediate athletes. All athletes will receive the same schedule, but each athlete will receive customized training zones (heart rate, pace and/or power) and have the benefit of a watchful eye looking over their training.
One of the greatest gifts about being an athlete is that it allows us numerous opportunities to experience the outdoors. It is hard imagine a life without access to nature. We have been blessed with this gift, while others may not have such easy access. This is why in 2018 Revel Racing will support Waypoint Adventure for our team charity. Waypoint Adventure is a local non-profit enabling individuals with physical and mental disabilities to experience the outdoors in numerous ways.
It’s hard to believe it has already been a year since we started Revel Racing. While this certainly is not an all-inclusive list, as I take time to reflect, here are some of the things that stand out to me as high points of the season.
So Mike Reilly called me an Ironman … so it must be true even if I still don’t really believe it. However, let’s just say that last Saturday was one of the most amazing experiences in my life. And I can’t wait to do it again!
In order to ensure quality coaching for all of our athletes we have a two-staged approach to limit the number of athletes we coach. A wait list will be implemented at the point where we have fifteen actively coached athletes. Above fifteen athletes, we will no longer continue to take on new clients and only allow returning athletes to reinitiate coaching up until we have twenty coached athletes. Twenty coached athletes is the maximum number we will allow to be coached at any given point regardless of their previous status with the team.
Your race is finally in sight. You are in or approaching your final peak weeks leading into taper. As your workouts start to wind down, there are a few final things you will need to take care of leading up to the race. Check out our pre-race checklist to make sure you’re ready to roll.
You have slaved away through the winter, logged countless miles in the snow, the dark, on the dreaded treadmill all in preparation for the Boston Marathon. At this stage of the game your long runs are done, and you are onto that blessed taper. There’s only one thing potentially standing in your way for a successful race day… the weather!
Update: September 9, 2017: Between personal contributions and the team donation, we were able to raise $2,020 for Neurofibromatosis Northeast!
The 2017 Team Charity will go to Neurofibromatosis Northeast. Amazingly, NF is not well known even though it affects three times as many people as muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis combined! Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that can cause tumors to form on the nerves anywhere in or on the body at any time. NF is associated with disfigurement, learning disabilities, deafness, vision impairment, epilepsy and cancer. At this time, there is no effective treatment or cure for NF. The mission of Neurofibromatosis Northeast is to find the cure for NF by promoting scientific research, creating awareness, and supporting those who are affected by NF.
