Extreme Sports Superstar "Superpounce"

Mysterious and highly secretive, the athlete development and coaching program at Team Greyhound is a residential program in which athletes live under one roof, pursuing training methods that are said to involve such old-school techniques as "fun" and "play."

In a late afternoon press conference, TriGreyhound, head play-er and director of fun, stated, "We are extremely pleased to have an athlete of the caliber of Superpounce involved in our program. In my view, she is the type of superstar that causes everyone around her to play to a higher level. We expect new and higher levels of fun in our program now that she is involved. She truly does treat training like recess, and she is training like mad for this event."

Superpounce Opens Up A Gap On Her Coach
When asked whether the Tri Kidz Triathlon would get sufficient attention, coming as it does a week after the Ironman World Championships, TriGreyhound responded, "I don't see the problem. I mean, who would want to watch Chris McCormack for 8 hours on a computer screen when you can ring cowbells for first time triathletes racing their hearts out on a Saturday morning? THIS is the climax of the triathlon season.

now that's what i call "no child left behind" way to go superpounce. you're gonna rock that race!!!

i remember when my mom trained for her first marathon. this was back in 1980 when not everyone was running the way they do now and triathlon wasn't even invented yet. she was a single mom, and she did all her training runs at night so that she could still take me to all my weekend activities. she'd make me dinner, set me up with my homework, and then head out on a 3 mile loop that she would repeat after first coming and checking all my work. i remember my grandparents taking me to watch her on race day. she wasn't fast, in fact race walkers were coming in before her, but she was a marathoner at the end of the day....

i then trained my mom to run her second marathon some 20 years later in 2002. she was even slower than the first one (walked it in 11 hours), but i was still so proud of her and grateful for the example she set when i was younger.

you should change your blog name to "RAD IRONDAD"

race report for sure!!!!

I am very late to finding this but great job. I can only hope my kids join me when they are a little older. I do think 1 of the 3 will.
