Getting Prepped For the Iron Man Race

April 26th, 2019|0 Comments

The Iron Man triathlon is one of the most intensive races in the world. Many of QiVantage’s customers race in the Iron Man each year. Some complete the race, some don’t but everyone who tries will tell you that’s quite the test of endurance. If you want to take on Iron Man, you need to do a lot of preparation.

The Iron Man race starts out with a 2.4-mile swim. That might not sound too bad, but once you get going you’ll realize it’s a heck of a challenge. And you’ll have just two hours and twenty minutes to finish. Fail? Go home.

After that, you’re going to have to hunker down for a 112-mile bike ride. You’ll have eight hours and ten minutes to cross the finish line, so you don’t have to race, per say, but you’re going to need a lot of stamina.

Following the bicycle race, you’re going to need to complete a traditional running marathon. That’s good for 26.22 […]

Spring is here! The cold winter weeks are behind us and the weather is starting to warm. Even if you have a few days of cold left in front of you, hang on because the warm weather is around the corner.

Many people love springtime. It’s a chance to start anew. Fresh flowers, a cleaned out house, a chance to enjoy the great outdoors. Spring is a favorite season for many and it’s easy to see why.

Do you know who also loves spring? Our pets. Many of our pets have spent the long winter cooped up inside. Unless you happen to own a breed of dog meant for winter, say a husky, your pooch has probably been inside far more often than not.

Fortunately, you and the pupper can start spending more time outdoors. Along the way, both you and your pet can get some exercise as well. That’s good for the body and soul.

By the way, if your dog is feeling a bit sore from being […]
