Pit Bull Attack Update

As many of you know that my niece was mauled by two pit bulls on July 21, 2017. Since then she has had a miraculous physical recovery however it will take time for the scars to fade and nightmares/fears to dull. I really love this song my niece Rebecca wrote with her sister Amanda. The song can apply to so many difficulties in our lives. Please take a listen and share if you agree. I just love it!

August 7, 2017 by  
Filed under News, Prevention & Safety, Product Reviews, Races

All races are tough in their own way. This one was hard because I was tired going into it, but I was please to accomplish all of my goals (see post below). This was a training race to prepare for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships next month in Tennessee. I learned some things from this race and will make some changes in training to adjust and should be well prepared for World’s. I can thank my friends and family enough for their support. If you need help training don’t hesitate to contact me. Triathlon training rocks!

My Niece Was Mauled by Pit Bulls

July 22, 2017 by  
Filed under News, Prevention & Safety

My niece, Amanda, was mauled by two pit bulls on July 21st and has severe lacerations and damage all over her body including her head. After 5 hours of surgery they addressed over 45 wound repairs, they are hopeful that she will have a full recovery but it will take time. She is only 11 years old and has been a real brave little girl. I know it will be a difficult recovery for her. Any contributions to help relieve some of the medical expenses for her family would be greatly appreciated. Continued prayers are always welcome. We love you Amanda!

Product Review:  Solo Sleeve HydraKlick Bottle for Running

Hot! Hot! Hot! The weather has been HOT here in Northern Utah this summer. With all this heat and ramping up my training I am always looking for ways to stay cool while I run outside. I also do not like to carry things in my hands if I can help it so I was excited to try this HYDRAKLICK Solo Sleeve bottle. This bottle is different than other bottles because it’s NOT hand held; it clips onto your waistband. I like this because when I am trying to open my gel or ProBar chomps while running my hands are free to do so.  I really liked that! There is also NO belt, it clips securely on your shorts waist band.  I particularly liked my on the front hip (easy access) on my drawstring shorts. It would also work well with compression shorts I believe, so perfect for a bike-run brick workout.

What I really liked about this bottle particularly is that it was insulated; I filled the 8 oz. BPA-free bottle with ice-water and it stayed cold for my entire run! The bottle also has neoprene pockets for chapstick, gels, key etc… and is equip with a speed value so I can squeeze and squirt water in my mouth or on my head or clothes to stay cool, no need to suck on it.  I really liked this product and am excited to try their whole line of products including the Belt Intro, and Solo 8.Up next, the Solo Mobile phone holder so I can use my new running playlist!  Woot!  Woot!

Happy Running & Stay Hydrated,

Coach Lora
