Where To Train: Boulder, CO
Of course everyone knows Boulder is the mecca for triathletes. If you didn't-now you know. SO I thought I'd ask Laura Tingle, resident tri-athlete and TIMEX athlete some of her favorite places to swim, bike and run. If it's good enough for the pro's-it should be plenty fine for you and me.
First a little background.
Founded February 10, 1859.
25.46 Square Miles
Laura Tingle, originally from
Nebraska, is now living in Boulder,
Colorado. Laura swam
and ran track in high school
and during her first two years of
college, She had heart surgery her junior year of
college. While recovering she started
riding a bike, and
fell in love with it. Laura
completed her first triathlon in
April of 2005, and started
racing professionally in
August 2005. She has completed
two Ironmans, and is now
focusing on the half ironman
Unfortunately Laura was hit by
car while riding in November,
2007, and is now working
her way back into shape for the
2008 season. NOTHING GETS HER
When she's not training and
racing, Ishe enjoys going to
church, riding her long board, and baking cookies.
YEA-COOKIES! SHE'S TOTALLY DOWN TO EARTH!
Laura recommends the Flatiron
Athletic Club for chlorinated swimming and weight lifting but also likes the
Boulder Reservoir for open water swimming. Her favorite place to ride is any mountain in Boulder. She's a maniac. Admits she likes to ride up as much as
down! Her favorite run spots
include the Marshall Mesa, just south of Boulder. At Teller Farms, on the
Boulder Creek Trail, and in the winter she
runs the stairs in front of the Westminster Rec

the Foo Fighters, Rolling Stones, Kanye West, Incubus and Trina.
Laura's a tough chick so be sure to check out her favorite spots. Be sure to wave if you see a hot blonde on a bike go flying by (uphill).
