The current issue of Lava Magazine, the official magazine of the IRONMAN triathlon organization, has a profile article by Chris Foster: “Taking in the Triathlon Paradise that is Las Catalinas.” Some of my favorite lines include:
- “As a pro rider who has traveled all over the world, it is a blessing to find a legitimate lap pool that is not shaped like a jellybean.”
- “Though there are a few resorts and vacation areas that have nearby trails, almost none have the extensive mountain bike selection of Las Catalinas’ local shop, Pura Vida Ride.”
- “Las Catalinas is a town striving to create an old-world sense of community based around the new sports we love.”

As you know we host the Las Catalinas Triathlon in February each year, it is always a great day! In other triathlon news there is a major IRONMAN sponsored 70.3 mile event coming next June to our local area.
