Just got back form our first ever TBC Costa Rica camp. We had such a great time! We had athletes from the US, Canada, as well as Venezuela. It was awesome to see everyone integrate and have such a great time.
Coach Jim Vance did the leg work for the camp and he did an awesome job. He arranged great digs for us with a 7 bedroom mansion with a pool for us all to enjoy, transfers, personal chefs, and even maid services daily! It was great.
In addition to the learning and training we all did, we all got an opportunity to compete in the new Rev3 races held there. With an Olympic distance on Saturday, and a Half on Sunday, some of us had an opportunity to do both races. TBC had 5 athletes on the podium as well as the overall Male and Female winner for BOTH RACES.
Sally Meyerhoff has been working with me since the end of last year and I would say she is off to a great start! Let’s see, she won the Rock N Roll Marathon in Arizona, and then won the overall title at BOTH races in Costa Rica. Oh, and did I mention had the fastest run splits for both races INCLUDING male athletes… WOW!
I am looking forward to the camp in St. George in 2 weeks.
If you are looking for a late season camp to get ready for an Ironman like Wisconsin, Hawaii, Florida, etc, check out our fantastic North Georgia camp in Aug. I think I will limit the camp to 15-20 people to make sure it is a manageable group.
