2018 Team Charity: Waypoint Adventure

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.

2016-2017 Season Highlights

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.

Tracy Landeryou- Baystate Marathon

I participated in the 2017 Baystate marathon in Lowell,MA yesterday….touted as a good one for first timers as it is mainly flat. And it was mostly flat except in mile 4 and 14, and the bridges. The temps were perfect to start, wearing my cooling sleeves and light gloves. I started up my marathon playlist and Gettin Jiggy with it came on! I started up my Garmin so the gps would be ready and got a low battery warning for my HR monitor. Oh well, nothing I can do about that now!

Ben Besse – Ironman Santa Rosa

Well, Ironman Santa Rosa is done and dusted. For a number of reasons (some that I’m still working through), this race is taking a bit longer to fully process than races past. Santa Rosa took a lot of grit. There were not many moments on Saturday where I felt like it was all clicking, but luckily it all came together quite nicely nonetheless.

The support crew was second to none as usual. I cannot say this enough—without these people (and the many I’m sure I’ve forgot with my post-IM brain), this would not be possible. Period. Andy, Brian, Sue, Patti, Dave, Revel Racing, Ann, Brendan, Mark, Craig, Endurance Swimming: Open Water Training, Breakthrough Performance Coaching, Sara, Labell And Associates Physical Therapy, Kathey, Sports Rehabilitation Unlimited, and of course all my amazing friends/training buddies (you know who you are). THANK YOU.

I’ve had several requests for a little race report, so here goes. Feel free to stop here if you’re not interested in all the details.

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!

Puerto Rico 70.3 – Brendan Davis

From the start I was seriously looking forward to racing Ironman 70.3 Puerto Rico. A large group of fellow BTTers racing and the course looked like it would be a beautiful race in a beautiful location, not to mention my first Ironman branded race (There is something to be said about Ironman). I believe it went into being as prepared as I ever have for a race, working with a coach (Dave) for the first time, and ready to go on race morning.

The Rise of the Quantified Athlete

Here at Revel Racing we pride ourselves on the quantitative approach we take with our athletes. Part of this means evaluating and incorporating some of the latest technology into our training. This week I was lucky to attend the Harvard Innovation Lab’s: The Rise of the Quantified Athlete: An Experiential Forum on the Future of Athletic Performance along with some of the coaches from TeamBPC. Below are the three technologies we are most looking forward to trying out in 2017.

Tracy Landeryou: Tri for a Cure

2017 is the 10th annual Tri for a Cure, and my 5th time participating in this event.  This year I have yet again set a very lofty fundraising goal of $20,000 for Maine Cancer Foundation.  I am proud to say that while I did not quite hit that goal last year, I raised $18,600 with the help of many donors!  In my 4 years of participating in this event I have raised nearly $70,000 in the fight against cancer.
