After a month in Hawaii, Iâ€™m certain that everyone needs a little sunshine to start off training for the new year. Hawaii may be a long way away, but I bet you can find a cheap ticket to Austin. Check out the Austin Endurance Ranch put on by Chris Tremonte â€“ a professional triathlete from Seattle. Chris has been making dinner for all his friends every Thursday for the past 3 months in preparation for this training camp, and I can say with certainty that the food alone â€“ both healthy and delicious â€“ will make this training camp worthwhile and memorable.
Aside from the food, Austin has some great training opportunities: roads with Texas size shoulders to ride your bike on, endless miles of soft surfaces to run on, and some really unique pools for swimming. Itâ€™s definitely one of the most fun places to do a winter training camp.
The first camp starts next week, and Chris is giving last minute deals on the camps. You may spend less for a week of training in Austin than you would staying home and keeping the heater on full blast.
Check out the website, contact Chris, and book a flight to Austin. Youâ€™ll be glad you did.
