Richie Cunningham, Takes a Licking and Keeps on Ticking

Richie Cunningham Timex 2014

http://richie-cunningham.com/

Richie Cunningham returns to the Timex Multisport Team after spending the last five years racking up countless podium finishes and victories.

I was on Team Timex a number of years ago. When I lived in Europe, I always raced in a team environment. I like racing on a team. It kind of makes triathlon not such an individual sport. Timex has put a lot into triathlon and it’s nice to be a part of that. I’ve known Tristan Brown, the team manager for years and have always liked working with him.

Cunningham is red haired speedster from the Gold Coast of Australia and now lives and trains in Boulder, Colorado with wife, 2 dogs and chickens.

You Gotta Tri with Bo Parrish

Conquer Your Comfort Zone with Bo Parrish

Stride for stride with 2x Ironman World Champion, Mirinda Carfrae at 2013 Ironman Florida.

I was diagnosed with an inflammatory bowel disease known as Crohn’s disease at the age of 13. I suffered chronic pain, fatigue, weight loss, anemia, bone loss, fever and excessive diarrhea. Over the course of 13 years the inflammation in my large intestine led to a rupture which put me in the emergency room for a life-saving surgery.  This situation could have easily been avoided had I accepted the inevitable need for change and elected the recommended surgery.

North American IRONMAN Transfer Pilot Program

IRONMAN is piloting a new program to give IRONMAN athletes an additional option to the standard refund policy. Instead of taking the standard refund, athletes registered for select North American IRONMAN events now have the option to transfer their entry to another IRONMAN or IRONMAN 70.3 event in North America with general entry slots still available. Athletes may move to a race sooner or later in the calendar year (dependent upon availability) and may move to another IRONMAN event or to an IRONMAN 70.3 event.

There is no such thing as being “born with it”. Glory is earned, not given. Happy training.”

Athlete check-in at an Ironman or Ironman 70.3 race is the process in which athletes get their bib number, sign a liability waiver, pick up their race packet, receive their athlete wristband, grab their swag bag and get assigned a timing chip.  It’s not a very lengthy process and thanks to the volunteers, is actually pretty easy.
