President's Notes
By Cindy Creel

September and October have been
busy months for all athletic endeavors
for the Tri-Sport Members.
Adventure Racers have been busy
competing and have one more major
event November 12th with the Lewis
& Clark Urban Adventure Race.
Triathletes have competed locally in
Conway, AR and are competing all
over the country from Hawaii to Las
Vegas to Florida. Runners have been
really busy with 5K and 10K races all                                Tri-Sport Roadies
over Northwest Arkansas. Cyclists are
still roaming the hills on organized fun rides to Eureka Springs, Van Buren as well as Bentonville to Missouri and
Oklahoma in the Tour de Cure and Russellville on the MS 150.
Ultra/Trail Runners have the annual Mandude on December 3rd and Mountain Bikers have had the Whiterock
100 to test their skills and endurance on Sunday October 23rd.
Please note the photos and recaps of these past events and some future events in the Newsletter.


We have lost the pleasure of having the evening workouts since the end of Daylight Savings Time. So it is back
into the gym to keep our fitness level and cross train for the Spring.
Be sure to refer to the Tri-Sport Calendar at www.trisportclub.com for continued workout times and dates.
Check out the special offer made to Tri-Sport Members for the winter in the newsletter. You can take some swim
classes at FAC in the indoor pool. (Thanks to the bubble)...or take some Bike Spin classes to keep your aerobic
fitness. Or, help strengthening your core with Bodyflow, Yoga or Pilates. You can also Strength train with Body
Pump and weight machines or free weights as well as Cross Train with Body Combat, aerobic classes or just
use the stair machines or treadmill. All are important to keep in shape during the "off months" and prepare to
compete in the Spring. Check out the classes at www.fayac.com                       Continued on next page

you get to the top ahead of everybody else."

    CYCLING SAFETY TIPS FROM JOHN HUGHES of the
         ULTRA MARATHON CYCLING ASSOCIATION
Bob Breedlove was one of the most experienced, safety-conscious riders I know; yet,
he was killed in a traffic accident during RAAM. Bob always wore orange gloves when
he rode - so that he could hold up his hand and motorists would see him. At his fu-
neral we handed orange gloves to his many friends. Cycling has some inherent risk,
but we can do a lot to minimize the risk:


1. Wear bright clothing.

2. Mount a reflective triangle on your seat bag or Camelback.


3. Use a mirror.


4. Obey *all* traffic laws - don't "blow" a stop sign, even on a quiet road.
                                                                           Continued on next page
                                                                                   Page 5




CYCLING SAFETY TIPS CONTINUED...
5. Ride predictably, as if you were in a car. For example, when approaching an in-
tersection if you're going straight, then stay in the straight-ahead lane, don't go
over to the right-turn lane - where cars will assume you are turning right.


6. Establish eye contact with a driver before entering an intersection.


7. Be alert around
fellow cyclists -
more accidents are
caused by other rid-
ers than by cars.


8. Protect your front
wheel when riding in
groups. Ride so that
another rider can't
knock your front
wheel out from under
you.


9. In groups look for
road and traffic
hazards; don't assume
someone else will                                          Van Buren '05 Bike/Train Ride
point them out.                                                More on Pages 8-11


10. Learn to ride a straight line even while drinking or eating.

11. Ride with a light touch on the bars instead of a death grip. If you allow your
front wheel a little wiggle room, you can get over/around small obstacles that oth-
erwise might take you down.


12. Be extra-cautious when fatigued. Drafting with others can reduce your effort
and talking can help you stay alert - but don't ride too close to others since your
reaction time will be slower.


13. Maintain your bike. While mine isn't the cleanest around, I try to wipe it
down and inspect it weekly.    Over the years I've found a couple of cracked cranks
as well as cut tires - any one of which could have taken me down.


14. And finally, don't ride faster than your guardian angel can fly!

The riders participated as part of the Arkansas Megasorasses MS 150 Cycling Team. Amy Knight of Stephens
once again sponsored a team dinner at Petit Jean Lodge Friday evening. Tri Sport members made up about half

  Fayetteville Bicycle Company would like to offer the following specials for the
                             2005 holiday season.
  All 2005 bikes in stock are 20% off MSRP.
  All Pryme peanut shell helmets are 35% off, while supplies last.
  All remaining Louis Garneau summer jerseys 40% off.
  All remaining AXO and 03/04 Answer shoes are 45% off, lots of sizes, while supplies last.
  This is the perfect time of year to dust off your Mountain bike and enjoy some of the
beautiful Autumn scenery. The mountain bike is also the ideal tool for winter training as
           the slower speeds and higher workload make the cold less daunting.
 The repair load through the end of the year should hover around 3-5 days. So give us a
call and schedule an appointment or bring those bikes by for a year-end checkup, or an
                                   out of mothballs tune.
                         To everyone, a very happy holiday season.

Running, Racing, Training
By Jon Fricke

Last month I got on my soapbox about goals, keeping
track of times from previous year races and all that good
stuff. This month I have Chile Pepper on my mind. Yes,
it is over and it was a success, but thank goodness it is
over. Tonight was the volunteer party where the few
volunteers who showed up got recognized for their ef-
forts with food and drink and additionally a door prize
from the race for their efforts. The volunteer effort for
this race is huge, but the volunteer appreciation is even
larger. If you don’t know what I am talking about, make
sure to volunteer next year; in fact, this year’s volunteer
coordinator is stepping aside allowing someone else to
enjoy the responsibility. Please let me know if you are
interested in being the volunteer coordinator next year at
the Chile Pepper. It is not too bad, as long as you don’t mind sending multiple emails and recording responses, and remember
to send replies to every volunteer and then send an extra email or two as well. At least one or two emails to confirm the vol-
unteers know they are welcome and expected to attend and then another to thank them and then of course another email to ask
the volunteers to attend their party, not to mention the next email to thank them for attending the party and then at least one
more to thank them and ask them to come back again next year. I think you get my point, it takes a few emails and then fol-
low up with an excel spreadsheet on who is going to volunteer and having a rough guesstimate of what time and where they
will be best put to use. Really it is pretty easy, it just takes some time commitment and a desire to herd cats. The cause is
good; high school cross-country teams get the money. In fact, I saw where Fayetteville CC splits their money with their jun-
ior high CC teams for their uniforms. If you enjoy details and seeing your efforts rewarded and thanked, please let me know
if you will be the next volunteer coordinator or the next helper for the next volunteer coordinator. Bruce Dunn and Jose Fen-
nel will be glad to have your help and input.
Speaking of input and help, I have heard more about injuries and                          Chile Pepper Volunteers
recovering than I thought was possible. If any of you are too young
or lucky to not have recovered or have a current injury, just stop
reading and keep praying. When you have an injury, remember,
your body is talking to you and although it feels great to get back to
where you were when you got injured, usually it will come at a lar-
ger price the second time if you don’t listen to your body.
After running more marathons than a marathon has miles, I thought I
knew what I could do and I thought that waiting one year was the
magic number. Now I realize that when you have pain, slow down
your recovery and training regimen. In fact, cross training is very
important, as is proper nutrition, stretching and allowing your body
to heal. I know it is good to cross train and I ride at least one mile
on my bike for every 50 miles that I run. (Do I have that backward?)
Do you know anyone who will run my dog where I can ride my bike
longer? A friend suggested the Jetson’s dog treadmill, does anyone
have one of those to lend to me?
Remember to stretch your hamstrings, touch your toes, and sit cross-
legged like in yoga or sitting with the Buddha. Hopefully your nutri-
tion doesn’t have you looking like the Buddha, but if it does that is
OK to, as long as you are happy.
Since I have not been traveling 110 nights a year, I have had fewer
doctor visits, even though I am 10 – 15 pounds over my ideal

running weight (ideally, I am still a Clydesdale), but I have less
stress and get more sleep without my 5 am mandated runs.
If you schedule allows it, run when you can, as long as you still
get in 3-6 runs a week, even if they are a few minutes shorter,
you can usually find one or two days a week to run longer. If
you get in a longer run or two – that is great, if you don’t – you
have next week to get it in. Again, if you haven’t had an injury
to recover from, don’t listen to this crap, just run your heart out
and push and push until your friends wonder if you eat or sleep.
I remember one of the top runners/swimmers where I went to
school. He was unbeatable by the college athletes and also by
the area runners and swimmers. He was the coach. He was an
awesome “ultimate” player. You could easily recognize him
because he was the one who looked like a living skeleton, his
face looked as though he had not slept for a day or two and he was skin, bone and muscle where you wondered if he needed a
few bucks for a hamburger. What is the answer? Ask yourself and your true friends, look in the mirror and be happy with
yourself. Do you have goals to win races and achieve your PR’s or
do you have a goal to have energy and fitness to stay away from the
doctor’s office?
Tulsa Run will be over and done by the time you read this, I hope
you went to this great event, if not, go next year.

on the 2006 Ozark Challenge.

What Is The Ozark Challenge Adventure Race?
Adventure Racing, America's fastest-growing team sport, requires athletes to locate remote checkpoints while navigating
many miles of wilderness. Relying heavily on outdoor skills such as orienteering, paddling, climbing and biking, each team
must complete any given race together as a unit in order to finish. Featuring Arkansas' most rugged and spectacular terrain,
the Ozark Challenge includes trekking, mountain biking, whitewater canoeing, and rock climbing sections that test elite and
entry-level adventure racers alike.

Race Format
Co-ed teams of 4 adults (18 or over) compete head-to-head while trekking, whitewater canoeing, rock climbing, and moun-
tain biking across the most beautiful and remote regions of the Ozarks. There are two categories: The Sprint (formerly Basic)
category covers up to 50 miles over a continuous 16 hour period (expected race time is 12-16 hours, however 36 hours is our
official cutoff). The Advanced category stays the same this year, covering up to 100 miles continuously within 36 hours. The
top three finishing Advanced teams qualify for the USARA National Championships.

Time for a transition
By Dirk Friel
UltraFit.com
October 07, 2005

Autumn is the beginning of the transition phase of
training for most endurance athletes in North
America. Although many tend not to take a rest period
after a season of racing, those who do are well
rewarded.

A complete rest period is essential for proper development as an athlete as fitness does
not improve continuously. You must introduce a rest period that is at least three weeks in
length if you are a year-round endurance athlete. Losing fitness is a necessary evil if your
goal is to improve year to year.

The transition period can rejuvenate fatigued muscles and joints. Logging
hundreds of hours of training can only point an athlete in the direction of overuse
injuries. By introducing a transition period you may be fending off an injury that
is just around the corner.

If you've been sick occasionally throughout your season your body may be
shouting out for a good rest period. Time away from training can help hormone
levels, rebalance blood chemistry and rejuvenate the central nervous system.
Your body's micronutrients and blood chemistry may thank you after a month
away from serious training with a better immune system and faster recovery
between workouts.

Nutrition
Nutrition may be another great area to concentrate on during the transition
phase. Since intensity and training volume are dramatically reduced, this can be a
good time to analyze your overall nutrition and start new habits. Focus your diet
around nutrient-dense, low-glycemic, high quality, unprocessed foods.

Save the starches and grains (pasta, bread, rice) for later in the training year
when you need them for fast recovery fuel. Starches should be viewed as your
secret weapon to pull out for the times when you need super-fast absorbing foods
after intense training and races.
Choose high-quality protein, such as free-range meat and wild fish, during all
training periods and especially so during the transition phase when you are
preparing your body for upcoming strength training in the weight room.

Weight loss
If you need to lose weight, the transition and preparation phases are the safest
time of the training cycle to focus on a calorie deficit regime. Remember you need
to burn 3500 calories, or intake 3500 fewer calories, to lose one pound of body
weight. This can be done safely with fewer consequences during the transition
and preparation phase, as compared to base, build and race phases. Remember
the closer you get to your race season, the more important it is to replace lost
glycogen stores during and immediately after training.

Equipment
You may also be surprised, after a transition period, at how some things are just
obviously wrong with your equipment once you resume training again. Certain
issues just don't come to light until you take time away and start over. Remember
when you train day after day, week after week, month after month your body
adapts to good, or bad, equipment.

Many athletes adapt to a less than ideal position that over time creates nagging
issues -- saddle sores, cramps, back pain, neck pain and knee issues. All of these
are unwelcome to endurance athletes yet many learn to train with the pain, even
though the solution may be simple. Small adjustments to your handlebars,
saddle, cleats, shoes and more can relieve pain and increase economy.

Your body is unbelievably adaptable, which isn't always welcome when the goal is
to go fast and be efficient. Adapting isn't always the best solution. A misaligned
knee, excessive movement or rocking may be obvious after you take a break. The
best thing is to fix the source of the problem, rebuild and re-adapt.

Take your fitness to a new level by starting with a fresh mind and body. Total
fitness improvement is the overall goal, but short-term fitness loss is a necessity.

                 Hawaii ITU World Championships 2005
As some of you know, I recently traveled to Hawaii to participate in the World
Championships. First, it was one of the most exciting experiences of my life,
second, Hawaii is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been.


Athletes from all over the world attended the World Championships to see how
they fare against their own countrymen (and women) as well as athletes across
the globe. From England to New England….several countries were represented.
The countries bearing the most athletes were the Australia, Great Britain, New
Zealand, South Africa, and the USA with a total of 602 athletes in attendance.
Pictured below are members of Team USA from Arkansas! Karlton Naylor, Deb
Dunn, and Kerry Allen (formerly from Arkansas and ex-Lady Razorback, now
living in Miami, Florida).

Final Team USA Roster Announced

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Oct. 18, 2005) – USA Triathlon has
announced the members of Team USA for 2005.

Because the 2005 USAT Age Group National Championships in Kansas City, Mo.,
were rained out, USA Triathlon announced that anyone who picked up their
packet at that race would be
allowed compete at the 2005 International Triathlon Union Age Group Triathlon
World Championships in Honolulu, Hawaii.

However, not everyone from the Kansas City, Mo., race would be considered
members of Team USA. Only those on this list, who were top finishers in Hawaii,
will be considered members of Team USA for future years.

The selection criteria for the 2005 Team USA members is as follows:

      The athletes that had qualified for Team USA in Shreveport, La., in 2004
      and competed in Honolulu were automatically included in the selection.
      After the automatic qualifiers were included, the top U.S. finishers from
      Honolulu filled the remaining slots on the team for a maximum of 18
      Team USA members per age group.
      Some age groups did not have a full U.S. contingency and they are the only
      age groups that do not have 18 members.

      Click here to view the entire list. AWAD team members have been added
      to the end of the list.

great appetizers, sides and dessert, so they were certainly well fueled. Here are some pics of the festivities…..
