  • Paddling and pedaling the Red Cedar and Chippewa rivers and trails
    Wisconsin’s answer to Minnesota’s Root River for a premier paddle-and-pedal adventure is the Chippewa-Red Cedar River system.  
  • Soaking in 30 hours at the Stubborn Mule Adventure Race
    Checkpoint 40 was determined to finish me off. I had just passed the halfway point of the 30-hour Stubborn Mule Adventure Race. It was getting dark fast and thunder was rolling in the distance. 
  • Jackie Arendt stays cool before defending her Ironman Wisconsin title
    Jackie Arendtm 29, is approaching 2014 Ironman Wisconsin with a calm and consistent mindset, even with the pressure of defending a title being motivated by her nuptials. 
  • A new triathlon will make its debut next year as the first of five events in the also new 2015 Northwoods of Wisconsin Tri-Master Series. 
  • 2014 Multisports Calendar
    The following multisports calendar includes triathlons, duathlons and adventure races set to take place in the upper Midwest in May through the end of 2014. 
  • Finding a new path & purpose
    Since its creation in Green Bay in 2010, the Wisconsin myTeam Triumph franchise has paired more than 700 men, women and children with disabilities with more than 1,000 volunteer angels. The able-bodied runners, clad in red T-shirts with the “Run like an Angel” motto on the back, provide the propulsion in nearly 30 races a year, from 5K runs to marathons to 100-mile bike rides to triathlons. 
  • Many triathletes spend hundreds of hours training in indoor YMCA pools. But when it comes to racing season, the majority of the swim legs at event take place in inland lakes. Swimming in large bodies of water, like Lake Michigan, can be far different experience.  
  • When the economy crashed, my work as a freelance writer suffered. Instead of getting too depressed about the decreased workload I decided to use the unexpected free time to get in better shape. Possibly stretching that goal a bit, I registered for the 2012 Ironman Wisconsin. Why not, right?  
  • Two years ago I looked across the dinner table at my wife's big leafy salad and back at my plate and a second heaping helping of something far less healthful. I suddenly found myself saying outloud to her, the cook in our household, "You really shouldn't have to make different meals for me."  
  • The easiest part of a 24-hour race is signing the waiver. When training starts, reality sets in. It should be obvious that your nutrition plan will need to be tuned up for one intense party.  
  • Last September I joined thousands of other triathletes flooding Ironman Wisconsin's website vying to register for the event. Known for selling out quickly, I was thrilled to learn I had made the list of official registered competitors for the September 9, 2012, event.  
  • There is a general consensus in the sports medicine field that cross-country skiing is the ultimate aerobic sport, with Nordic skiers attaining the highest max VO2 levels of all endurance athletes. Looking at this conclusion from a different angle, perhaps I can convince some of you who don't ski of the benefits of this sport.  
  • Q & A with Dave Cornthwaite,  British adventure traveler and founder of the Expedition1000 project. Cornthwaite is undertaking 25 separate, nonmotorized journeys of 1,000 miles or longer around the globe. Expedition1000 has so far taken him 3,618 miles across Australia on a longboard skateboard, 1,479 miles down the Murray River in Australia by kayak and 1,396 miles from Vancouver to Las Vegas on a tandem bicycle. His future plans include cycling across North America and paragliding over through the Himalayans.  
  • Early on the morning of July 18, 2010, I found myself at a Half Ironman event in Racine, Wisconsin. Looking at my fellow 50 to 54 age group competitors clad in ubiquitous black body sculpting wet suits, my resolve shuddered a bit. Just exactly what had I gotten myself into?  
  • It's becoming increasingly common for triathletes to hire coaches to help them improve their swimming, cycling or running techniques.
