  • Yea, and XTERRA is Saturday, while IMMT is Sunday. I can’t imagine there’s a ton of crossover there per se, certainly not within the pro fields. Particularly as Quebec is supposedly pretty technical and only has $7500 prize money, so not a ton of in…
  • All I know is that they only made them up to a size 13. So, basically they're saving us big runners from the inevitable calf injuries that being big and trying to run in something like that would cause. Thank you, Nike.
  • @Martin thanks for the offer. I'll definitely consider, especially because my options for flying to Montreal or Burlington are far more plentiful than to Quebec itself.
  • I love that part when the bowsprit snaps off. @AaronWebstey , can @wchevron get a badge for first confirmed use of the word "bowsprit"? Not only a serious fan of Caddyshack, but clearly a trained mariner. A Dartmouth boy has to be impressed. Mayb…
  • The actual page has since been removed and clicking him returns a 404 error...but they gotta fix the main page to remove him from there too. Whoops.
  • No martinis for me because current training fatigue would probably have me black out at the scent of booze. But I am spending a super exciting Saturday night at home watching Caddyshack on Netflix alone
  • I've kinda always thought that non-draft Olympic served as a good middle ground for all parts of triathlon, even including us off-road weirdos to a degree. Personally, had the format not gone all but extinct at the elite level 3-4 years ago, I'd pro…
  • Cool stuff. More importantly, can we gamble on MLT yet? If they get this going like Keirin racing in Japan, it would be awesome. I’ve had that thought since going to a jai alai fronton in Florida several years ago.
  • @M_Ware I still might in the relatively near future. I'm in a condo now, too, so a dog is a bit more of a pain than if I had a backyard. It depends where I end up after grad school, so a backyard and minimal/no work travel makes me more inclined to …
  • I considered adopting a dog for like a day (my 100% valid and rational reason) but then I remembered that I am never home and will likely spend the next 15 years moving every 24-36 months back and forth across the country. So, meet Arthur the betta…
  • @AaronWebstey sorry, no more listicles from me now that I'm doing a grad degree in IT. I'm available to take over as Prince of All Technology, though. Here's my portfolio: http://www.business.colostate.edu/cis665/SP18King.idking/HTMLHomeworks/HTMLcs…
  • Honestly? Humans are capable of being, and often are pretty terrible. I understand how it's ever so slightly easier to rationalize the crappy behavior of people who live off mom and dad make a living doing the sport, but that's probably intellectual…
  • Find a used Quarq and a Garmin 500. Bet you can buy both of those together for under $450
  • Perfect timing. I was just about to ask about Woodways. Anyone ever run on one? I just discovered that my school gym has 3 of these (and a curve, too). Tried a couple of them yesterday and hated it. Every step transmitted a shuddering through my fee…
  • Other than news, my only sports podcasts are occasionally @Sralston on “The grind” and then mostly just Crosshairs Radio and BikeshopCX, both about cyclocross racing, the latter a bit more about tech (I find myself skipping episodes of that more oft…
  • One of our first indoor rides of the year with my college's tri club, something wasn't quite right with either the skewer, legs not even, or....something on the trainer because one of the girls on our team fell off, causing a slight domino effect. I…
  • No interest from me, but I just have to add that the CAAD10 105 is basically the Honda Accord of road bikes, and on the occasion when I am assembling or disassembling my Venge, I sometimes wish I'd kept my CAAD10
  • @James Lange triathlon only exists in NCAA for a relatively small number of women’s programs. Otherwise, it’s a club sport for all men and the vast majority of women’s teams as well. Some schools, Liberty being one of them, do actually manage their …
  • So, a few things: $2k is right around the point where it is worth considering hardtail/full suspension. Much cheaper than that and you absolutely should go hardtail because $1500 full suspensions are absolute garbage. There’s a school of thought tha…
  • @PescadoPelado don’t forget to show the name of the batch of coffee!
  • Isn’t there some thing buried in the annals that technically he can come back as an age grouper forever? That the five year exemption is only for Pro field, but past champions are welcome back for life otherwise?
  • Nice! Being from TX I'm always jealous of basements and the cool things people do with them. I know the feeling! When I was moving from southeastern VA to Colorado and looking at houses, some had basements and I thought “oh yeah, basements are a thi…
  • I was going to be offended and say “absolutely not I would totally bring something more thoughtful!” Then I remembered the last three parties I went to, I brought chips and salsa. You have me pegged, @M_Ware
  • As a toxicologist I'd happily test that suspicious white powder for you Got a suspiciously taped-up box with below average handwritten address that contained several pouches of white powder with minimal labeling. @ItsShug I am genuinely impressed by…
  • Garmin FR 35 is also a pretty good option. Gets bluetooth notifications, has optical HR (though I still wear a strap for hard workouts because I find that’s better once I start sweating), works as step counter/activity tracker, and is about the same…
  • I like to drink the neck out of those ciders and refill it with fireball. very tasty treat. edit: you need more spiced rum in your life. You are turning a very pleasant, innocent drink of adult apple juice into something that kills people! Every ti…
  • Got a suspiciously taped-up box with below average handwritten address that contained several pouches of white powder with minimal labeling. @ItsShug I am genuinely impressed by the efforts you went to make my package look like a letter bomb/anthrax…
  • If only this had been around just a couple months ago when I was buying my P3...
  • Honestly only watched for the sprint finish footage. “Highlights” of slow motion of people swimming, riding, and running without any context isn’t going to engage me a whole lot.
  • Unrelated per se to recruiting, but cool that you got that gig, @KMRyanTri I know there was some criticism that some of the NCAA schools were basically hiring “ordinary” local age group coaches with little to no knowledge of draft legal racing beca…
