The Marathon Whisperer

Ironman 70.3 Oceanside


Nothing says it’s the start of triathlon season more than Oceanside 70.3 in California! Fresh off her  amazing performance at Ironman 70.3 Bariloche setting the fastest bike split for the day, Caroline Coble picked up right where she left off by finishing in 10th place against a very strong field of pro women. 

We’re not huge advocates of sharing race reports, but this one is worth mentioning. Nice work Caroline!

From Caroline’s Instagram post,


1. I didn’t swim like a weenie 🙋🏼‍♀️

2. I rode hard, but smart 🤓

3. My legs showed up to party on the run 🤘🏻”

Denise Sauriol (Chicago, IL)


Our resident “Marathon Whisperer” was featured in an article in Runner’s World Magazine and we couldn’t be more proud of Denise and her drive to help others even when she was going through her lowest point of her life. Her story is one of inspiration and motivation and we’re so glad that she is being recognized. 

Denise is an author, a certified running and triathlon coach, the co-founder of Girls on the Run Chicago and has run over 100 marathons!

“Triathlete falls in love with trail running at camp, runs his first 50k just weeks later”

We love to have fun around here, who doesn’t. Matt Davidson is no exception to having fun either. Looks like he’s not too shabby at trail running either! Matt finished 2nd place overall at the Ozark Foothills 50k with a time of 4:44. “Damn, that’s a long time to be running” he said. Just wait ‘till he runs a 100 miler! Way to go Matt, now get back on that bike!  

Ironman 70.3 Galveston 

Brandi Swicegood (Austin, TX) crossed the line at Galveston 70.3 in 2nd place (F40-44) with plenty of time to spare before the bad weather hit. Later in that day, Ironman would make the call to end the race  early, pulling many age groupers off the course due to safety concerns.
