Triathlons are a blast! Learn some tips and tricks about competing in a triathlon from Coach Lora Erickson aka Blonde Runner (mother of 4). She will demonstrate transition set-up, review the course as well as give you tips for triathlon racing and training. Learn what to eat during a triathlon to fuel yourself to a strong finish. This will be a lecture style format (no workout). Come join the fun and get all your questions answered to complete the TriathaMom event! Beginners welcome. Limited spots.
This class will cover all aspects of combating emotional eating and how to better take control of your health. Learn how to eat to lean up your body. It might be easier than you think. A date has not yet been set for this class. If you are interested in attending please message Coach Lora Erickson directly at email@example.com so more information can be provided as it becomes available.
I will be offering my next small group swim session on Wed. August 27th. This class will be for adults and will cover triathlon specific swim skills. If you would like to get feedback on your stroke and learn how to swim faster and more effectively, this is a great class for you. Also, if you are a beginner that struggles to breath correctly this is a good class for you. If you are a more advanced swimmer I would suggest getting an Underwater Video Analysis done in addition to a small group swim class. There are limited numbers in the classes so pre-payment is required to hold a spot. All fees are non-refundable. Contact Coach Lora Erickson at Lora@blonderunner.com to reserve your spot.
“I swam so much better in this race than I did in the Women of Steel tri last year. I owe it all to the tips you taught me in that one hour swim class! Thank you Lora!” #blonderunner#masteroftriathlon#swimminggenius Angie N.
Openwater swim skill classes are also available. Contact Coach Lora to learn more. Wetsuit rental also available.
(in no particular order – well maybe the icecream one)
1 – Eat ice-cream for breakfast – because I love ice cream and it’s my Birthday!
2 – Workout - because it’s my fav. Join in the fun with my Birthday Wish workout on Instagram http://instagram.com/theblonderunner This.is.so.darn.exciting! To be posted July 30 in the morning when I decide to get up. Hey, it’s my birthday. I might sleep in until like 7 a.m. or something.
3 – get a massage (oh yeah!)
4 – Do karate with my son – because it’s fun. Bring it!
5 – go running (yeah, I know I already mentioned exercise – but I love to exercise so it gets two spots)
6 – kiss my kids 42 times (it’s the gift that keeps on giving – I am sure they will LOVE this one)
7 – write down 42 things I like about myself (this might take all day)
8 – Laugh 42 times (this one will be a cinch, easy-peasy). No, not all at once silly – people will think I’ve lost my mind.
9 – Eat vegetables – because I am worth taking care of. Oh, yeah! Bring on the salad. I LOVE salads!
10 – Kick up my feet and read a magazine from front to back – or maybe just look at the pictures.
11 – Go shopping – because I LOVE to shop! Maybe I will buy another bottle of nail polish for my collection.
12 – Share an inspirational quote with my dog and cat. Hey – they are like my kids too.
13 – Open some presents. Ok, re-wrap the presents I opened early and open them again (sorry, I just can’t wait).
14 – Buy myself more presents. (J/K). Maybe surf the web and imagine myself opening those presents. Yeah know; the new car, fancy jewelry and two million dollar house. That is going to take a lot of wrapping paper!
15 – Do some secret service to someone (I can’t tell you more or it won’t be a secret – “”wink””)
16 – Build a snowman with Elsa. Humm, not seeing any snow in these dog days of summer. Maybe I’ll sing the Frozen song with my daughter at the top of our lungs.
17- Dance wildly to a song with all my children. (They will love this one as we have done it before!) Good times! Good times!
18 – Take a nap – well, I might only have time for a power nap, but I’ll take it. I will be exhausted from all the festivities so far. I will need to rest up for the evening festivities.
19- Yawn! Because I just took a nap. You can yawn too if you are getting bored reading this, but you must read on. You can do it!
20 – 25 Teach somebody something about health. This will easily take 5 slots. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to teach others about health, fitness,& nutrition – you name it, I love it!
26 – Post some inspirational thought and change someone life forever. Okay, maybe it won’t change someone’s life, but maybe, just maybe it will lighten their load for a day or spread some joy.
27 – Ring a cowbell – because it’s darn fun and reminds me of racing. (no, I am not half cow – although you might think that by how I ate my ice-cream for breakfast)
28 – Make up a joke. You might be surprised at my hidden skills in this arena. My knock, knock jokes are pretty amazing; kinda like my children’s knock, knock jokes.
29 – Sing a song for reals. Yes, I love to sing (not that I am good at it). Move over Katy Perry, make some room for the Blonde Runner vocals sung in the amazing acoustics of the shower. I am jammin’ to the Birthday song.
30 – Take a shower. I would like to keep the friends that I have and it’s really the only place I feel comfortable singing.
31 – I can’t believe I am only on # 31. Dang I am old. I think I will give myself 42 spankings for getting so old.
32 – Get a suntan – okay, just kidding I already have a tan! Have you seen my faint but REAL tan line I documented on Instagram? Check it out Isn’t it great?!
33 – Do nothing. Because I never get to do nothing. This might get boring so I will have to max it out at 3 minutes.
34 – Go outside and stare at the garden. Yes, I like to stare at my garden. My neighbors think I am crazy. But I love my garden. I would marry it if I could.
35 – Stop and smell the roses. This is assuming I am moving, but remember I was staring at the garden so I guess I will have to walk over to the roses, stop, and then small them. Yes, I love my flowers too. I am not a plant racist.
36 – Go to dinner! I love to eat out. I like the challenge of finding healthy things to eat. But I might get whatever I want because it’s my birthday. (Good thing I run).
37 – Hug my kids 42 times because they didn’t get enough with the kisses. I know they will just LOVE this. It might turn into a wrestling match.
38 – Have a water fight or nerf gun war with my family (shhh, don’t tell them, I’m going to take them by surprise). Clearly they have no chance. Bring it!
39 – Walk the dog. Because if I don’t he will poo and pee in the house and that is not a birthday present I want.
40 – Watch a movie at home (because I LOVE to watch movies at home with my family)
41 – Write in my journal and record things I am greatful for. I want to remember this day. You only get a birthday once a year! (They really ought to bump it up to two times a year so I can live to be 200 years old).
42- Make someone laugh. If you even so much as chuckled at any of these I can check this one off. Thank you! (wink, wink)
Happy Birthday to me! I am glad I was born! Thanks for pushing me out Mom.
Ryan Hall in Utah. I love what he is saying in this video clip.
