Simple Steps To Initiating Change
Here at Life of a Triathlete we want to teach; that’s our mission; to decrease the time it takes for triathletes to reach their goals. Mindful of our philosophy, we also believe our blog can be used to encourage change (which is a form of teaching) in the sport we love; this is the reason for this current blog entry.

DRAFTING – An ugly word in triathlon; does it also epitomize changing values in society?
Guest blog for Life of a Triathlete by Aaron Kessler
The negative fury the word DRAFTING evokes in the triathlon community is quite eye opening which is why I wanted to explore it in greater detail in this guest blog. This is an outside’s perspective coming from a former college athlete who has made his living in the finance world. I understand the passion of sports but can also approach this drafting analysis from a scientific, numbers perspective.

Glimpse into the Life of a Pro Triathlete
For our inaugural blog post, we want to dispel the myth that pro triathletes just train, sleep and race. We are responding to a comment we read posted in response to a Triathlete Magazine photo shoot. They thought it was discouraging to see a pro triathlete running through a park midday when everyone else was working. They then went on to proclaim the magazine should showcase more working people. It got us thinking that there is a misconception floating around as to what pro triathletes actually do during the day (we will dissect this in greater detail in or soon to be released Life of a Triathlete manuals). We do not think the comment came from a malicious place, just one of misinformation and not knowing the triathlete’s ‘daily’ job.
