This Weeks Discussion
Would you ever date a woman that was faster or more well known than you in your sport? Say for example Chrissie Wellington or another top pro?
Further more, (maybe a forum question, definitely a hot topic)-- Is it emasculating to date or marry a woman that can beat you at a discipline? Or an an entire triathlon? How about being married to a woman that is faster than you and brings home the bacon?

Age Grouper of the Week
James Flynn sent through this weeks age grouper, here his email:
This isn't Age Grouper of the Week, but it would be great if you could mention somebody special. Our group HEAT (Hartford Extended Area Triathletes) has a Sunday swim program at Cornerstone, a terrific swimming facility in West Hartford, CT.
We began in November, and will continue til June. We rent four lanes at the pool, and range from beginners to Hawaii Ironman finishers. We've had a volunteer coach, Rich Flores who has been fantastic. He has especially worked with the people who have room for improvement while the fast people beat the heck out of each other in lane four. Rich has a great record of coaching young people who have gone on to succesful swimming careers in high school and college. This is his first time with mostly older athletes. He has a wonderful combination of motivation and teaching the technical side of stroke improvement.
Website of the Week
Chris Tasker sent through this weeks website, it’s www.neovite.com. It’s a company that sells Colostrum which is a dairy food high in nutrients and protective agents that have natural immune and repair factors. The reason we like this website is because they have lots of information on why it’s so good.
John went to a coaching conference about triathlon last weekend. He gives some insight into what he learnt, it’s a great discussion.
