Triathlon ski vacation video: how to combine endurance sports with a family weekend getaway

Posted Apr 12 2010 7:00am


For many amatuer athletes endurance sports is more than just a weekend race a few times a becomes a lifestyle (a way to stay healthy and fit year round), and a way to share health and fitness with the entire family.

So here's the simple question for many amatuer triathletes.

Is it possible to combine a skiing, training, and racing a triathlon all in one ski weekend?

Roman Mica took up this fun challenge with a weekend of fun in the snow, pool, and gym at the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa in Avon, Colorado.

Think of it as ski, swim, bike and run.

FYI: Roman tied for the best swim time (who would have thought) at the indoor triathlon, but with one of the worst bike and run times he ended up third from last in the race results.

Complimentary accommodations were provided by the Westin Riverfront Resort and Spa.

He filled this video as proof that you really can have your triathlon cake and eat it too.
