Hello from Clermont, Florida!

Before starting our long trip down to Clermont, Florida, Karel and I got in a 3700 swim workout at Furman University to start our Monday morning. To be honest, we both had a lot on our mind so it was a little difficult to stay present but we got it done and both felt good with moving blood and getting our heart pumping before sitting in the car for the rest of the day. After our swim, we went home to eat breakfast and then it was time to pack up the car. Since I had dropped off the cats at my mom's on Sunday evening, it was time to say 'see ya later' to my little golden nugget. I dropped off Campy at his grandma's (1 mile away) while Karel was loading up my car and then we were off to Jacksonville, FL around 11:15am. While it's always hard to say good bye to furry child Campy, he is in great hands with my mom who loves him (almost) as much as I do and takes such great care of him. Plus, Campy has a bunch of furry friends in her neighborhood so he doesn't

Off to Clermont, Florida for our training camp!

It's crazy to think that in 2014, we held our first ever training camp in Clermont, Florida.  Now, 4 years later, we are heading back to Clermont for our 4th consecutive Trimarni Clermont training camp.

This year, our campers are in for an amazing 4.5 day training camp experience filled with education, lots of sponsor swag, challenging workouts, learning and stretching the comfort zone. And to make the camp experience even better, we will once again conclude our training camp with a USAT sanctioned Olympic distance event on the last day of camp! For us as coaches, seeing athletes in action is extremely beneficial as it gives us an opportunity to provide immediate feedback to improve skills and execution. Repetitive feedback to our campers offers the chance to correct previously learned habits and to enforce good habits. For our campers, training in a group environment provides a fantastic opportu

StrideBox Review - A running subscription box company

In early February, I was contacted by StrideBox, which is a running subscription box company that features a workout and recipe in the box from a coach/athlete along with a variety of running products and accessories. Each box also includes The Stride Guide, which describes the products in the box StrideBox asked me to provide a recipe and workout for the Make It - Food & More and Do It - Time to Sweat  cards that are included in the box. Of course, I couldn't turn down this opportunity to offer a workout and recipe to StrideBox subscribers as I love services that provide education and awareness of many different ways for athletes and exercise enthusiasts to train, fuel and eat. StrideBox has now sent me two free boxes and I wanted to share what was included in each box. I have to say, getting a box in February and March was exciting as I couldn't wait to open up the box and see what was inside. I think this is a great service for those who enjoy trying out new
