The great thing about EvoTri is a guy like Charlie. I cannot wait to meet him face to face on Thursday. Team EvoTri will be meeting at Vision Quest Coaching for the day.
As many of you know, this is my year to be a complete "supporter." No coaching, not much training, just complete support for my team. While I will not be training, I still want to try and run a sub 5 min mile and beat Zipp's Dave Ripley and EvoTri's Michelle at Steelhead (more to come on those challenges soon). It was yesterday when Michelle and I talked on the phone. She said, "Stu, I need you to pace me at Madison half Marathon to run a 1:50." I thought about it for a second and thought - this is what it is all about. It has nothing to do with Stu, and all to do with the others on my team. I just want to be available to anyone on my team to help out: Tracy, Greg, Chris, Michelle and now Charlie! Does it get any better than this???? I think not.

Michelle and I took a day trip to Frostbike in Bloomington Minnesota. It was a great day with a lot of great information from our sponsors as well as other great bike manufactures. I will make an entire show of it, but for now, a picture of Melanie McQuaid.

Welcome to Episode #67 of SimplyStu. It is with great honor that I get to interview the Ironman World Champion, Chrissie Wellington live from the UK. She is so incredible to listen to. Now that I have interviewed the three awesome TeamTBB Teammates of Belinda Granger, Hillary Biscay and now Chrissie Wellington, what could be left? I think it's time I interview them during a training ride one day? I will see what I can do. I also have my teammate on the show, Michelle. She talked about her new project called Run the World that will be part of the SimplyStu WorldWide Triathlon III this year. I hope you enjoy the show and look forward to Andy Potts, the Ironman 70.3 World Champion coming soon!

The Third Annual SimplyStu WorldWide Triathlon is set in stone. The dates will be March 28th - 30th. This year is going to be great.
Prizes: FREE T-Shirts for the FIRST 50 Kids with the cool new logo.
Date: March 28th - 30th
Format: You just need to do a SWIM, BIKE and RUN between the 28th and 30th of March. The idea is bring the kids with you, introduce a friend, or a date with your significant other. In the past two years people from all over the world have taken part in this awesome event. No pressure, no hassle, just a race around the world. You will join others from Japan, UK, Switzerland, US and everywhere in between. You can do it all at your local health club, you can do it outside, you can do it alone, you can do it with your family.
Distance: Any distance will do. I have had as short as a 1 lap swim, a 2 block bike ride, and a 1 block run. The longest??? A 1/2 Ironman. So you can see there is a lot of room. Just be part of the day.
I have many people that have done I and II, and plan to do III, so if you are new, I hope you join in. You will be part of the most wide spread single weekend triathlon in the world.
Global Runners: Check out Rural-Girls blog for all the awesome details. Michelle is starting the very cool program as part of the SimplyStu Worldwide Weekend!
Cost? Yeah right. NEVER!
If you are going to join in, just send me an E-Mail with your location, distance and who is doing it. I will give you specifics on getting kids T-Shirts in a few days.
The catch? Have fun, be healthy, and enjoy!
