Luxury Meets Athleticism: 5 years strong

Luxury Meets Athleticism: 5 years strong

The antidote to procrastination

The GNC Longboat Key Triathlon and Duathalon celebrates its fifth anniversary this year, and the well-respected sporting event remains high on the bucket list for those who enjoy pushing their bodies to the limit.

Forming a global nation, the triathletes who travel to Sarasota to take part in the annual endurance test will be once again be looking forward to a combination of luxury and limb-busting sporting bonhomie that can take the most fleet of foot up to 90 minutes to complete.

As with all triathlons, the ability to overcome the inevitable long-distance swimming, cycling and running endurance tests is paramount.

“It’s extremely competitive,” said Tony Driscoll, CEO of TDA Global Sports, the promoter for the event.

“But this is, for a triathlon, a very luxurious setting,” continued Driscoll. “It’s second to none. The athletes are treated to a luxurious reward for their commitment.”

And Driscoll insists Sarasota can go the extra mile in the face of competition.

“Many of the athlete’s want to test themselves in Sarasota simply because this triathlon takes care of all the participants’ needs after the race is over. Why? Because most athletes will have experienced the usual attitude of ‘Hey, well done for finishing. Here’s a bottle of water and a banana.’

“This event is far from that business model,” Driscoll said.

“This triathlon is an upscale event that attracts athletes who want to compete,” Driscoll continued. “But they also want their sense of achievement recognized.

“I don’t care if they’re professional or amateur athletes. I’ll make sure they are rewarded for their efforts.”

There are plenty of things to love about getting older—you’ve learned to appreciate the little things (a purring cat on your lap, the first strawberry of summer, comfortable heels that go with everything), you’ve made peace with your faults (or at least most of them), and you can eat dessert before dinner and no one is going to say you can’t. But the wisdom of age also brings another inevitability: “Bodies change as we age,” says physiologist Tom Holland, C.S.C.S., author of The 12-Week Triathlete. Hormone levels change, and you naturally lose metabolism-revving muscle mass starting around age 30—about half a pound a year. As a result, metabolism slows, making weight gain easier.

One of the best ways to stay fit and injury-free in your 30s, 40s, and beyond is one many women have already discovered: triathlons—a race where you swim, bike, and run, one sport immediately following the other. Nearly 40% of triathletes are now women, and female participation has jumped 10% over the last decade, according to USA Triathlon. What’s more, the largest membership increase is within the 30 to 49 age groups, and the average triathlon participant is 38.

Why the buzz? “It’s essentially forced cross-training,” Holland explains.

Ready to follow Donovan’s lead? Here are a few things you need to know about triathlons before you get started:

* Make your first race a sprint triathlon. This is the shortest distance—usually a half-mile swim, 12-mile bike, and 3-mile run. Most beginners will finish the race in about 2 hours.
The average training plan for a sprint triathlon lasts about 6 to 8 weeks.

* You don’t have to invest in a ton of fancy equipment. You can ride any working bike—yes, even a mountain bike or beach cruiser. Many local bike shops will rent you a bike for a day.
