News and Press

Typically I use this article to talk about racing Ironman triathlons with one of the TCSD members.  But today I’d like to expand all of our horizons by speaking with Julie Gildred, TCSD member who is on a continuous Ironman of sorts as she is using her love of cycling to see the world.

Katya Meyers

After Ralph’s Half Ironman in Oceanside I had the rare chance to catch up to Katya Meyers and talk triathlon.  I say rare, because no amateurs caught Katya at Ralph’s.  She dominated the women’s amateur race and only 8 of the pro women finished ahead of her.  Katya also had a podium appearance last year in Kona finishing 3rd in the women’s 18-24 category with a time of 11:05:20.  Here’s some of that conversation:

Ann Leath

Please join me for parts of a conversation I had with long time Triathlon Club of San Diego member Ann Leath.  Ann has succeeded at every multi-sport distance and done it with class while really giving back to the sport.

Mike Plumb

I had the chance to talk triathlon recently with Mike Plumb, one of the All Stars in the Triathlon Club of San Diego's powerful men's 40-44 age category.  You will enjoy getting to know this awesome athlete and one of the most significant contributors to triathlon in the San Diego area.

I had the chance to meet Patrick Baldwin during Ironman week in Kona back in October.  He’s a great guy and a great triathlete as he broke the 10-hour mark in his first ever Ironman race.  I think you’ll agree that Patrick’s motivation and class is as admirable as anyone in our sport.  I hope you enjoy some excerpts from our conversation. 

Sean Boyle posted a time of 9:44:27 at Ironman Hawaii on 10/18/03 becoming the undisputed Ironman World Champion of the Triathlon Club of San Diego.  Amidst other interviews, sponsorship deals, photo shoots and time with his fan club, I talked Ironman with Sean.  Please take a moment and enjoy getting to know our very own World Champion.
