The Austin Triathlon - Articles

The Austin Triathlon - Part 1 of 2 by -Brandon Posted Fri 28 Aug 2009 8:19pm Today was the inagural Austin Triathlon. I'll do an item by item review ending with my race report. Course Grade: A-. I really liked this course and the fact that only 1 distance was offered. After having CapTex rained out, it was good to be able to finally race downtown in 2007. The swim in town lake can be a risky venture if it ra ... Read on »
2009 Danskin SheROX Austin Triathlon by Donna Patient ExpertHealth Maven Posted Tue 03 Feb 2009 10:51pm Registration opened this morning! And yes, I'm registered for the event. I am "ass-cited" June 6th and 7th in Austin, TX :) Not much else is going on, besides Hot Flashes from starting the Levoxyl, but that's okay. That's the worst of it. They usually happen right before I get up in the morning. Strange. I haven't seen any other miracul ... Read on »
The Austin Triathlon by -Brandon Posted Fri 28 Aug 2009 8:19pm It's on Labor Day...Monday. For some reason, I always seem to get Labor and Memorial Day's mixed up. Anyway, I've got it right this time. It's a good event, the 2nd triathlon to be held downtown. The crew at High Five Events do a good job with all of their races, and this one is no exception. Last year with the exception of some slow moving ... Read on »
The Austin Triathlon by Heather H. Posted Tue 06 Sep 2011 5:03pm Photo by Tom Marek This was my 4th Austin Tri, it's one of my favorite races. I was extra excited about this race because I've had kind of a tough year with injuries and illnesses, so this was my first healthy race of the season! My pre-race routine was pretty normal. When I dropped my bike off at transition on Sunday, it was crazy windy, a ... Read on »
The Austin Triathlon 2010 by left.right.repeat Posted Mon 06 Sep 2010 3:21pm Quick race report. We started as a late age group- old men. Water felt great and swim was uneventful. I thought I was going really slowly but I did have an ok time for me. Right in line with most Oly swims. I came out of the water and on the run to T1 it started to rain. I mean RAIN. It poured through the first 17 miles of the bike ... Read on »
The Austin Triathlon - Part 2 of 2 by -Brandon Posted Fri 28 Aug 2009 8:19pm My Race Report Card: A- I am giving myself an A- for this race, but not because I won. I went into this race with the hopes of racing fast and coming away with the win. I've pretty much covered the course review, etc. so I'll get to the specifics of my race. I've sort of gotten into the habit of taking the swim out fast, regardless of ... Read on »

Now triathlons aren’t purely cycling (there’s some swimming and running in there), but they are near to my heart as they got me back on a bike ten years ago after a decade off. ... Read on »
Austin Olympic Triathlon 9/3/07 by Tri to Be Funny Patient Expert Posted Fri 17 Apr 2009 12:31am Today marked the Inaugural Labor Day Austin Olympic Triathlon around the streets of downtown Austin. What a GREAT Race by our friends at Jack and Adams...totally first class from start to finish. I was still operating at about 80% as the scratchy throat and stuffed up nose still hadn't completely dissipated. Unfortunately, I must've pass ... Read on »
