The year 2022 is rapidly coming to a close. It was a very successful year for Catalyst Multisport clients, with multiple goals achieved , be it PR’s, podiums, stepping up distance or simply getting out there and doing it. It was also a year in which things almost returned to normal in regards to travel, racing and life in general. I will ignore the 2 World Championship races in the same year and the new normal regarding Kona as that does not affect the vast majority of us. With that said as we are about to swap out that 2022 calendar for a brand spanking new 2023 one here are 23 of my thought ..read more

5 Things I Did to Become a Better Athlete
Catalyst Multisport Blog

Yet as my kids got older, and I found myself with a little more time (emphasis on the word *little*). I started running with other people. I ..read more

Race Report from Challenge Miami

With a little apprehension, both from a fitness standpoint and from the media’s depiction of Florida, I decided to sign up for the sprint race at Challenge Miami. The last time I raced was in July of 2019 and since then my training had been sporadic to say the least. None the less, myself and my brave companion, Huckleberry took on the adventure of traveling from the cold and snow of the Northeast to the warm and sun (and masklessness) of Florida. We arrived a day early to get the lay of the land and were pleasantly surprised to see pretty much everyone wearing masks and following social dist ..read more
