We hope you're been enjoying the arrival of Spring and the start of racing season. For bike fans we were treated to Paris - Roubaix, for the Ironman faithful Oceanside kicked off for the pros, for runners the Boston Marathon is Monday, and with team sports we've left March madness for the start of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, NBA Playoffs and Baseball season. Good Times.
Aside from sports, the dark and dim days of winter have hopefully left, giving us opportunity to take in some vitamin D with much needed sunshine and fresh air. We're taking full advantage of the changing seasons with a busy weekend.
This Saturday is the Oak Ridge Velo Road race presented by Podium Sports Medicine. Many of our Multi-Sport athletes are stripping off their aero bars to test themselves in the pack with pure cyclists. If you're in Knoxville or surrounding counties this will be a great race that also needs Volunteers. You can check out details of the event here.
Sunday marks the start of the Podium Grand Prix with the Trideltathon. This is a great early season race with several of our athletes competing.
The granddaddy of them all is back for its 34th year. The TriDeltathon, the oldest running pool triathlon in the country, will again be the regular swim/bike/run format in 2018. As always, a 400 meter pool swim will be followed by a 6 mile tour of the UT campus & Neyland Drive, capped off by a 3 mile campus run passing Neyland Stadium and Thompson Boling Arena.
The Podium staff will be out and about as well. Dr. Sprouse will be at Ragnar Trail Atlanta running through the woods and through the night. On Saturday Stacy and Myself will be out at the Oak Ridge Velo with Podium swag and unwavering support. Then on Sunday Stacy will be out at the Trideltahon cheering on Jeff while I accompany my girlfriend, Megan, to her first Ultra at the Fonta Flora 50K!
Enjoy your weekend!
