Advantage Multisport

Big race weekend

Lake Stevens was the final A race for 3 Advantage Multisport athletes. Leighton Overson placed third overall and won his division of the PNW Regional Sprint Distance Champs. He had the best bike split of the day which has been the focus the past month. Kevin Williamson was 5th in his division, concluding a…

The awesome athletes, and people, I get to work with.

Aquatic Edge

What an amazing experience Josh and I had working with world record holder and swim coach Karlyn Pipes today. My stroke was literally transformed in an hour with some “outside the box” approaches she uses to improve balance, power, ease.

The endless pool was such an amazing tool…

Ironman Arizona

Congratulations to Chris Lease and Joe Morelli for persevering through the rough swim and windy bike yesterday to both finish Ironman Arizona. They both executed great races in the tough conditions to finish strong with a smile. Doing a late season Ironman makes for a very long season, requiring a lot of discipline to press on when most athletes in the Northwest have long finished their seasons. Very proud of you guys!
