The Seguin Blue Norther Duathlon

This is it people,. The time is drawing nearer. The Seguin Blue Norther is March 14th and the competition is heating up. If you are not familiar the race its a flat and fast course that always brings out a great crowd. Live music and good food is found at the awards ceremony along with the chance to win some raffle goodies.

Dancin' Don Ruthven has even made the claim that none or maybe just a few can possibly beat him on the bike. He is willing to put up a $15 gift certificate to anyone that beats his bike split. It looks like I will be getting a gift certificate.

If you are looking for that fun season kickoff race then check this one out.

Tri Team Transport

United and Delta Airlines are charging $175 EACH WAY to bring a bike on board. The cost of traveling to races is increasing and things are starting to get bleak....THAT was until TRI TEAM TRANSPORT came to the rescue (insert superman theme). This great Austin based business will take all the fret and worry of traveling with your loved one (the bike).

They will professionally transport your bicycle and race gear in our secure custom team bike trailer, aiding you in a worry-free and excess luggage-free trip. Your concern should be getting you and your family to the event and let us handle the bike.

Just drop off your bicycle, fully assembled, and exactly the way you would like to have it on race day. We are triathletes ourselves and understand the importance of having your bike set up exactly the way you have trained on it for your big race.

Chiropractic Goodness

Yesterday I went to visit a local doctor for some neck and back pain. During some extreme discomfort I saw Dr. Ross Bomben at Performance Health Austin Chiropractic on facebook and said what the hell that is what I need. I need to quit being lazy and get fixed. I deserve to be pain free!
Not having any idea what Dr. Bomben was about I made my appointment and met up with him and his staff. I have been to other chiropractors in the past and felt it worked but it was so-so in the long run. What I really liked about Dr. Bomben was that he was an athlete that understood injuries and wasn’t a doctor that said a big word and added –itis to the end and told you to just stop working out. He asked me lots of questions about what was happening and went over what might be causing the problem. In the end he gave me several good exercises to FIX the problem not just relieve the pain temporarily.
He did the traditional chiro bone cracking and massage and left me feeling GREAT the rest of the day. The rest is really up to me to do what he told me and fix the problem at hand…I wish there was just a magic pill.
In the end I felt he wasn’t trying to sell me appointments but was actually trying to fix me as quick and as cost effectively as possible. So hats off to Dr. Bomben. If you have any problems I would highly recommend checking out his staff.
