Today's feature interview is a teaser for an upcoming interview. Siri Lindley who was on the UCAN coaches panel. I thought the advice she had for athletes during this time of COVID had some great wisdom - "We've been a gift. Not training balls out is going to take discipline. Reframe as an opportunity to strengthen the parts of our life that needed work and bring us into our racing season when it comes."
Siri was the World Cup Series winner in 2001 and 2002. One of the winningest triathletes in triathlon history. Triathlete of the year in both 2001 and 2002, and inducted into the USA TRIATHLON Hall of Fame in 2016.
We spoke to Siri back in 2017 about her career and we wanted to share that with you as a combo teaser and get to know Siri before we talk to her again.

2021 IRONMAN Tulsa Registration NOW OPEN
What's New in the 303:
August 6th, Littleton: Sasha Underwood started her solo bike journey today and is planning to ride the Colorado Trail in ten days. That’s over 50 miles of single track, hike-a-bike, not easy riding every day. All of that while carrying everything she needs; clothes, food, tent, sleeping bag, tools, stove, hydration supplies, and a lot of mental toughness and grit! She did mail ahead some food to a couple of towns along the way but otherwise is self supported.
Harvest Moon and Oktoberfest Triathlons
We spoke last week about Without Limits Productions resuming Thursday night Stroke & Strides, which offered a glimmer of hope for our final two September triathlons. Stroke & Stride was only able to resume under Phase II “Safer at Home”, and for the Harvest Moon and Oktoberfest Triathlons to safely take place, we needed Boulder County to apply for Phase III “Protect our Neighbors”. At this current time, Boulder County still does not qualify to apply for Phase III.
Lookout Mountain Triathlon 2020
Since early March, your never-ending support drove our team as we worked alongside all permitting and health departments for solutions and options. I’m sorry the outcome wasn’t what we all hoped for or ever could have imagined six months ago, but our work doesn’t stop here. We’ll continue to deliver three more safe and responsible Stroke & Stride events (August 13th, 20th, and 27th), while also getting an early start to make 2021 the most special season yet.
Karen Hornbostel Memorial Time Trial Series
It has been a long road, but we have received our Special Activities Permit from Cherry Creek State Park! Our new dates are September 9, 16, 23, 30, October 7, 14, 21.
Due to the sun setting earlier late in the season all start times have been moved up by one half hour, with the first racer starting at 4:00 PM.
Video of the Week:
8/27 Dave Scott uses every single workout to assess your body's performance capacity and predict why you could do in a race of a particular distance on that day. Talk about how routine practice helps dial it in for different disciplines.
8/28 Siri Lindley who was on the UCAN coaches panel and had a good perspective on COVID - "We've been a gift. Not training balls out is going to take discipline. Reframe as an opportunity to strengthen the parts of our life that needed work and bring us into our racing season when it comes."
