Yes, at my old club, the Canyon Lake Triathlon Club in California, I was fondly referred to as either the “Cookie Monster” or “Speedy Gonzalez”. In my new club, Aegir3 AKA the Reykjavík Triathlon Club, I’m now referred to as “The Zen Master” because I’m such a proponent of practicing yoga. At every race, you’ll find me on the sideline meditating before starting the swim.
It seems as I’m not the only endurance athlete that believes in the benefits of yoga. Please click here to read an interesting article on yoga from our friends at Ironman. I’m not sure about practicing yoga during a race but what the heck!
