Last week, we saw what an amazing year it has been for and Rulon Racing.

Last month, when I was doing a Facebook Live, I figured out that I coached almost 3,000 miles to the finish line for my athletes for 2017. That is just my athletes that are racing and not all the training that they did!!  I am just floored at this number and it truly warms my heart!

This week, I wanted to share with you the “Top 5 Blogs/Vlogs of 2017!” It is interesting. After I checked my Google Analytics, a little bit was on the triathlon side, the business side and the nutrition side.

Here are YOUR Top Five Blogs of 2017:

Changes for 2018

(Thoughts: Change can be hard for a lot of us. So when I shared to the Rulon Racers, that I was going to make some changes in 2018, it was hard for me to tell them. What I realized though, I had to do it. After it was out there, people talked to me about things, I felt relieved. I am truly looking forward to 2018 and working with athletes that will represent Rulon Racing and my coaching. My cup runneth over…)

Should I do a Marathon before an Ironman Triathlon?

(Thoughts: I don’t know how many times I have heard triathletes, who are getting ready to do an Ironman Triathlon feel the need to do a marathon! NO. NO. NO. Just the recovery alone should make you not to do it. You don’t need to do a damn marathon to do an Ironman Triathlon. Trust me. Read below for more reasons why!)

The “Old/New/Old Way of Race Day Nutrition

(Thoughts: After racing 13 Ironman Triathlons, you tend to try everything and anything that is out there for your nutrition. You hear about the newest trend, the “Next Best Thing,” or your friend is doing it. Ironman Race Day Nutrition will make or break you. Plain and simple. Find out more below!)

Data Driven or Heart Driven 

(Thoughts: This has to be one of my favorites from this year. Why? As a coach, I see a TON of information coming my way. Whether it is an athlete excited about what they just accomplished (data) or an athlete that is about to break down in tears because things are not working out for them (heart). I think a solid athlete has to be heart driven but also look at the numbers. That athlete also needs to tell their coach, WTF is going on. Read more below).

Ironman Triathlon Race Day Nutrition

(Thoughts: Like I said above, race day nutrition in an Ironman Triathlon, will truly make or break you. Check out how I explained things and how I looked at Ironman Race Day Nutrition!)

I hope you enjoyed the last  blog of 2017 and found some good information heading to start your triathlon season! Happy New Year Friends and see you in 2018!!
