At a few points during the race, two-time defending champion Jesse Thomas didn’t think it would happen.
Trailing for nearly all of the men’s elite Longcourse competition at the Wildflower Triathlon Festival on Saturday, there were moments where he thought he wasn’t going to be able to come out on top. And despite pushing his way to second on the final 13.1-mile run, there was still doubt. Read More »

The sun is shining longer every day, telling you that it’s time to get ready for vacations, activities with family and friends and of course, swimsuit season. To help you prepare, there are some simple fitness tips you can follow to look and feel good this summer season.
Celebrity trainer, Dolvett Quince, helps people to look and feel their best on a daily basis.
“Summer is just a few short months away,” Quince says. “Getting your body ready for summer requires full involvement of one’s self. You need to be prepared mentally as much as you invest in yourself, physically. So, you need to be ready from your head to your toes – it’s a full body commitment. Hard work aside, you’ll be sure to enjoy the new you as you reach your goal.” Read More »
It’s funny to think it was only 2 years ago. Most of you are probably sick of the story (if so, skip the next paragraph), if not, here’s a quick recap:
A bright eyed, bushy haired first year pro out of Eugene drives the ManVan with his buddy Matt last minute down to the historic Wildflower Triathlon. The kid doesn’t have a clue. He uses a borrowed bike (his broke 4 days prior), a borrowed helmet (also Matt’s), a hand me down race kit & of course, $8 drug store aviators. But, he lines up, has the race of his life, and while the announcers literally don’t know his name, crosses the finish line to win.
I was pretty dang excited. I honestly felt like my short “career” could have ended and I’d have been happy. A year later, I defended the title, and proved to myself that I wasn’t just a one hit wonder. It was one of the most important performances of my career. Read More »

Fitness Walking Workouts
Comparing walkers to runners is like comparing Barry Manilow to the Rolling Stones. One gets all the respect and the other … well, not so much.
But a new study out of the University of California, Berkeley, has given walkers a much-needed boost in respect, not to mention added validation that walking is bona fide exercise.
The study, published this month online in the journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology, examined the health outcomes of 33,000 runners and 16,000 walkers over six years, and researchers discovered that despite the difference in exercise intensity, both walking and running offered similar reductions in risk for high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes.

Joe Andruzzi doesn’t want a big deal made of this story. That’s just the kind of guy he is you see. It’s in his blood, Andruzzi has three brothers who are New York City firefighters that helped in the 9/11 attacks. Funny that on Patriot’s Day in Boston a former Patriot gave us a reason to believe in humanity in the midst of a tragedy.
When asked about the events that transpired Andruzzi said, “Marathon Monday should be about uplifting stories, personal challenges and fundraising milestones, but today’s bombings irrevocably changed that.” Read More »
JayBird Athlete Triathlon
This article was written by Lauren Fleshman who is a JayBird triathlete and the wife of Jesse Thomas who happens to be a JayBird triathlete.
I have a confession to make: I wish I had a penis. Just kidding. Kind of. Not really. Oh, boy. Let me explain.
My sister and I grew up with a pretty dominant dad (pictured; I’m on the right) who was really macho and worked in construction and had the language to go with it. (You’ve been warned.) Frank was the undisputed boss who got the best chair in any room, the first serving of home-cooked dinner, and complete control of the remote at all times. He’s the kind of dude you’d expect would want sons.
But no. Frank had two girls, and turned out to be an unlikely sage for feminist wisdom. Read More »
