Spring Round Up

FullSizeRender (4)

April 4, 2016. Madison, WI. It’s 34* at 11:00am and when I look at the forecast I see two days of rain cloud icons followed by two days of snowflake icons. We’ve had two weeks of “spring” but it sure feels like winter still. Mother Nature and our 2016 race calendar clearly need to get on the same page.

We’ve put in hours of suffering on the trainer and endless laps breathing dry, dusty air at the indoor track this winter. They know us by name at the indoor pool and we’re sick of our hair freezing after workouts. But alas, that all comes to an end this week as Coach PB and Andrew Keily head down to Galveston, TX for the triathlon season opener Ironman Texas 70.3. WE MADE IT!

This season we have some great sponsors on board for Team PBC including Trek Bicycle, Bontrager, Roka, and Champion Systems. We were fortunate to have a very talented Trek designer, Zak Seifkes, create our kit. He drew it all by hand and we think it’s pretty badass.

Coach PB additionally has Powertap, First Endurance, and the Great Dave Velo Club as sponsors.

I want to take a moment to say thank you to all of our sponsors. Our contacts at each company have been so helpful and great to work with. We are blessed to have companies that believe in us and support us in our efforts. We absolutely could not do this without them.

Next week look for Dana Kalina at NOLA 70.3. He has been training hard and making some big improvements. This race will kick off a big season for him as he heads towards IMWI. Stay tuned for more athlete and race updates as the season progresses.

In the meantime, Texas here we come.

Mark your Calendars

The leaves are changing. We are riding in vests and booties and running with gloves. It’s the off season. Time to take a deep breath and recharge for next year.

Successful business owners will tell you that the off season is the busiest time of year. They are working on budgets, marketing calendars, inventory plans, evaluating what worked and what didn’t, planning for next year. If you spend time and money on your race season, treat it like a business and start planning now. Don’t miss my free seminar next Wednesday, October 29 7pm at Trek Bicycle Store Madison East.

PBC WIN NOW SEMINAR

In addition to all the topics mentioned here I will have t-shirt and baseball cap samples on hand for trying on, admiring, and ordering.

In the meantime…. here is a teaser:
