Alas, the games are coming to a close. The weekend is over, the spectators worn out, and many of the athletes—i.e. the kayakers—are recuperating from a little too much fun (ahem). The final day saw Todd Anderson and Emily Jackson take home the 8 Ball kayaking titles, Gretchen Reeves and Josiah Middaugh get crowned the Ultimate Mountain replica Gucci watches Challenge champs, and Rickey Gates and Laura Haefali win the 10k Spring Runoff. The games, now in their seventh year, have clearly picked up steam.
Crowds mobbed the events, and even some of the lesser-known competitions, like Dockdogs Big Air, were well attended—but really, what better way to waste a Sunday afternoon than watching dogs jump into a vat of cold water with a PBR in hand. The final day was preceded by a final night of partying for charity, and from the bleary-eyed looks of replica brand watches everyone it appears that most people were feeling rather charitable.And while the games are over, it’s also a sign that summer is here. Now I just need to let my liver air out. —Ryan Krogh (photos by Jan Balster)
By the time I left school,my program had grown to 400 people. I like the puzzle of putting together aprogram, and in this sport, everyone is unique. You need to understand thenuances of each athlete, and manage overload, progression, and recoverydifferently for each. It’s an intricate web when you’re putting that togetheracross three disciplines for a Bvlgari replica watches long period of time. You need to push theathletes sufficiently but allow enough recovery and recoil so they can do itagain. When I was an athlete, I didn’t have a coachmanaging myself wasalways a little bit more of an adventure, trying to balance the tenacity with somecommon sense. Any gear recommendations for triathletes in training?
