I’m not involved in the triathlon industry, but I am an entrepreneur at my day job, so I find certain things about the triathlon industry to be fairly interesting, and whenever I find something interesting I’ll post about it here.

If you own a triathlon shop, read this post.

I run an SEO firm, and we just launched a little side project creating niche business directories. We just launched two at TriathlonShopDirectory.com and TriathlonStoreDirectory.com. These are national directories where any triathlon shop can go and create a listing for free. So if you own a triathlon shop or store, or if you’re a bike […]

Ironman Florida 2010 vs. the Oil Spill

Is the 2010 Panama City Florida Ironman going to be canceled due to the oil spill in the gulf? That’s the big question on my mind, since I’m signed up for it, it’s my first full Ironman event, and if they cancel it what do I do about an Ironman this year, when all my […]

Ironman for Mormons, but not Jews

Sounds controversial, doesn’t it? But it’s nothing of the sort, really. It’s just that generally speaking, Mormons don’t do Ironman races on Sundays, and I would guess that hardcore Orthodox Jews don’t do Ironman races on Saturdays. Some people might be surprised to find out Mormons do Ironman races at all, especially the people who […]

What’s the Difference Between an Ironman and a Triathlon?

Yeah, what is the difference between a triathlon and an Ironman anyway? The question doesn’t really make sense, because an Ironman is a triathlon, the same way a square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not necessarily a square, you know? There are four standard distances when it comes to triathlons, and an Ironman […]

Ironman St. George, Utah

Yep, so of course the big news in Utah lately is that we’re finally getting an official Ironman triathlon in St. George. WTC race official Paul Huddle says the run “is definitely the hardest of any [Ironman] North American run course.” The first one will be May 1st, 2010. Think I can be ready by […]

Ironman vs. Triathlon

Even if you’re just getting started in triathlons you’re probably aware that there are triathlons, and there are Ironman triathlons. Ironman is nothing more than a brand name that manages various products and licenses its brand for certain triathlon events. Events sanctioned by the Ironman brand sell out fast and cost a lot more than […]
