XTERRA Winter Park

“8,750′ above sea level to start…. Did I mention that that water was COLD?!?!” — Deanna McCurdy

 

When I set out for a race, I try to set a “best case scenario” goal as well as mini goals along the way to break up a race and help me get to the finish line. Today’s big goal: finish top 3 overall at XTERRA Winter Park. Mini goal 1: do not hyperventilate when the face hits the 50’something degree water and gets tangled with lake weed at the start of the swim. Mini goal 2: find a happy place mentally during the bike to overcome the terrain and cold wetness and frozen hands/feet. Mini goal 3: keep plugging and chugging up the hills all the way to the finish on the run. Big goal: check! Finished 1st OVERALL FEMALE with a PR of 7 min on the course! Mini goal 1: got a good warm up swim so body wouldn’t go into shock and came out of the water 3 1/2 min faster than last year and with the top group. Mini goal 2: frozen feet, icy clothes, and struggles to get lined full fingered gloves on made for a grumbly bike… But did ride 3 1/2 min faster than last year. Mini goal 3: kept moving and pushing the pace knowing each step is one step closer to the top of the hill and finish. Tough day with good end results as well as learned a lot about perseverance. #xterraoffroad #xterrawinterpark #tridirt #offroad #tohimbetheglory #thankful #middaughcoaching #goals #neverquit #milesforsmiles #cureangelman

XTERRA Iron Creek

SDTriNews.com – The Xterra Iron Creek Triathlon took place on August 20th at Iron Creek near Spearfish. Without even trying, this event showcased some of the most beautiful terrain in western South Dakota.

After some choice adult words about the technical aspects of the course, our inside sources deemed the venue “good,” with clear water at the perfect temperature for a wetsuit legal race; a beach run that lead to transition; a great bike course with the promised technical turns, three massive climbs, a handful of cowpies, and a herd of cattle that ended up pacing some riders; and a run that featured either a double track or gravel-quality road. Overall, the race scene provided just what the relaxed culture west of the Missouri often boasts of: a laid-back atmosphere with strong people.

With that thought in mind, we will link results for this event as soon as the powers that be release them. Word on the trail has it that a 12-year-old girl chicked a great deal of the male competitors and that the Aberdeen off-road bike star Craig Harrison won the long course. Considering the quality of athletes out west, none of this surprises us. Stay tuned for results.
