Lionel Sanders, a member of the 2014 Recharge With Milk Triathlon Series Ambassador Team, will take on Ironman 70.3 Texas in Galveston on Sunday April 6.
In his latest blog post, Lionel writes:
“So now I am in the most dreaded part of training and racing: The Taper. I am not doing a massively large taper into Texas 70.3, as my A+ race is in another month in St. George Utah, but I am definitely allowing myself some much needed recovery time. I haven’t raced a triathlon (aside from a short indoor tri in February) since Muskoka 70.3, so I am itching to get back out there. There is nothing I enjoy more than laying it out on the line in a big race…and judging by the bib list, Texas 70.3 may be the biggest race I have ever done.
The gun is set to go at 7 am Texas time, which is 8 am in Ontario. I sincerely thank my many supporters for allowing me to pursue my dream. I will be racing for you on Sunday.”
