The Lake George Centurion began in Battleford Park, which is nestled in the bustling resort village of Lake George in the Adirondack Mountains.

The Birth of a Runner… by Michelle Jay

I wonder when a person might call himself or herself a runner??? I've never considered myself a runner. I run for health, for stress relief, and to add balance to my physical life. I don't really care about how far I go or how long it takes me, so when I signed up to run the 30 K around the Bay, I did not realize what I was getting myself into.

Rock and Roll Half Marathon - Las Vegas by Klaus Fritzsche

Last August we had the pleasure of having both our daughters and our grandson home for an extended visit. During that time, Kalina, our youngest, announced that she had joined a running group and their target race was the Rock and Roll half marathon taking place in Las Vegas on Dec 4. I was thrilled because, although Kalina has always been active, up to now she had never embraced the sport as I had. Then when she asked me to train along with her and come to Vegas and run with her I was blown away! She then went on to explain that it was also a fund raiser for the Crohn's and Colitis foundation of America - a cause I am all too personally familiar with. I was in!

Ironman Kona Race Report by Hans Porten

It was an exciting year 2011. First Ironman ever in Austria and already qualified for Kona. Yeh, Kona, it is a different race. It may take 4-6 attempts to understand the course, the weather, the wind, the heat, the hills, the water, the waves, the run course, and many other details. For example the bottleneck at the turn around during the swim, not wider than 5-6m; artificially created by boats to make sure something ironmanlike happens during the swim.

2011 Ironman Journey Story by Joseph Park

While I write this "shameless self promotional Ironman report", I have a big grin on my face from the 2011 Ironman Canada race (3.8Km Swim / 180Km Bike / 42.2Km Run) as I am feeling much better than I expected. I wanted to feel little bit of the pain but there really isn't much pain. Really!! But there is a little bit of welcoming aches and discomfort when I move around.

Ironman Louisville, 2011 by Dianne Morrison

2011 Ironman Austria by Abilio Vieira

Saturday, May 14th, 2011, I was six weeks away from Ironman Austria and I had met up with the Saturday morning cycling group, getting ready to go out for a 100km ride. Now normally at this time of my Ironman Training Schedule, my main concern would be trying to keep from overtraining. However, that was not the case this time around. A little bit of mental burnout from Ironman Florida, a busy work schedule, and a leg injury from the Boston Marathon, had all impacted on my normal Ironman preparation.

Egg Nog Jog by Larry Bradley

Once again I walk away from a recent race not knowing exactly how to feel. I thought the effort was there but the result did not translate.

2009 Ironman 70.3 World Championships by Bill Vieira

On September 13th, 2009, I participated in the Muskoka 70.3 Triathlon and was fortunate to get a qualifying spot for the 70.3 World Championships during the rolldown that took place after the race. Almost immediately after Muskoka, the weather turned colder/windier/wetter and the days became shorter. It also saw the hibernation of my training partners and I must admit a little lack of motivation on my part.
