My Favorite Moment of 2014

Comment Below with your Favorite Moment of 2014?
2014 was Epic! As I think about the past year, there were so many special moments with my friends and family. From watching Zachary's face as he scrolled down the placement list of this duathlon to find out he had a top 10 performance, to watching Elijah in his gymnastics show which he made it look so effortless, to Emily pursuing her culinary career when she was so excited to help out in the kitchen of a real restaurant, to when I saw Irene's eye change from "I can't do it" an Ironman to "I am going to be an Ironman" herself as we sat in the Bench and watched our friends cross that finish line at Ironman Lake Placid. All great moments!

Many would think crossing the line at Ironman Arizona, and having Mike Reilly say, "Noah Lam, New York, You're and Ironman! Congrats, Noah!" would have been the highlight of the year.

Actually, My Favorite Moment of 2014 happened early in 2014. I was happy to go for a run alone in the snowfall. As I looped back, I looked over my shoulder and notice someone else enjoying a run. I said to myself, "that guy is crazy to go out to run." Then I recognized the running gait and it was Zachary. I paused and was reminded of how lucky I am to be able to be breathing, be living life to the fullest and be able to share it with someone I love. He was so excited to do his Ninja Shadow Running without me know that we was following me. As we ran back home, it was only our foot steps in the snow 

I would love for you to share your favorite moment of 2014 below.

Tentative 2015 Race Schedule

I've been listing some races that I wanted to do for 2015.  Last night, I finally came up with a final list to give to my coach.  I thought a couple races in my head to lead up to Challenge Maine and the NYC Marathon would be enough, since I did so much this past year.  Then as I started to fill in my calendar.  Holy Cow!  I need to work on my budget!

Blendtec vs Vitamix vs Ninja

I've had my Blentec Blender for the past 3 years and my wife and I use it every day to blend our Healthiest Meal of the Day Meal Replacement Shake.  We've put it through it's rigors of making our Shakes.  We've made soups, hummus and other great recipes.

I like the fact that it can blend all kinds of stuff, like an iPhone, or pens or a baseball bat! Watch!

I am always looking for gadgets, and the Vitamix is always a contender whenever I am in the housewares section of the department store.

The Ninja Blender is a great value, but will it last for a long time of smashing ice?

Triathlon and Running Gifts for 2014

Who else makes a wish list for the Holiday Gift Giving Season? Here are some ideas and in no particular order. 

Winter time usually means indoor training. So the CycleOps Fluid 2 Indoor Bicycle Trainer will come in handy to spin away for hours on end without dealing with the conditions outside.

With your bike lock in your Bike Trainer, you can watch a movie from Amazon Prime or workout with The Sufferfest.  They have training programs for cycling, triathlon brick and running workouts.

To track your progress, the latest GPS training watch from Garmin would be a fantastic gift for the data cruncher in your family.  The Garmin 920XT is going to look great on your loved ones wrist.

Make sure your athlete has identification while they workout.  All too often, we leave our wallets and drivers licenses home when biking, running or swimming.  RoadId is your way to communicate to emergency personnel if you can not talk.  Now you can customize your bracelet.

Shield your athletes eyes with Tifosi Podium S Sunglasses, the Fototec Lens gets darker with sunlight and in low light the lens becomes clear.  The frameless glasses helps the rider not having to see past the rim make neck strain less.

What is on your athletes reading list? 

During the so called off season for the athlete.  This is the time where they have time to recover and have time to get stronger.  During the racing season, usually the workouts are focused on the disciplines they are looking to improve.  You swim to swim faster, bike to bike faster and run to run faster.  This is why it's important to change it up and work on different muscles and a recommended way to sharpen those skills is with a Beachbody program like P90, P90X, Insanity, Focus T25, Body Beast or Piyo.

While your athlete enjoys their victory, they can also enjoy something that is coveted by athletes around the country.  Tate's Bake Shop Cookies are typically given to winners of races.   Yummy!  Use promo code Save10 on your next order to save 10%!

Your Athlete might want to display their accomplishments on a cool Triathlete Medallion Hanger.

When it starts to warm up, your athlete will want to get out for an open water swim.  Keep them safe with the Kiefer Safer Swimmer Buoy.  It also can keep their keys dry and with them.


A new wetsuit might be something very useful.  Have them swim faster in their next race with an XTERRA Wetsuit.  It's one of the most popular wetsuits available.  Save up to 65% with code CO-RUNWITHNOAH
