You have completed a few triathlons and feel accomplished, it was hard getting out there and learning how to do a Tri. Sure, they are still hard, but you feel comfortable in doing a Sprint or even an Olympic. Your friends and family think you’re a superhero and you feel like one. But you’ve watched “those people” who have challenged themselves beyond shorter races, by taking on the half distance or (gulp), the ultra 140.6 distance. “Those people” are hard-core with their fancy tri-bikes, aero-helmets and top-of-the-line wetsuits and you could never be one of them.
Somewhere along the way you started hearing a small voice, who whispered, “Maybe, just maybe, you COULD be one of those people”. You start to wonder if you have it in you to finish a half or even, by some miracle, an ultra 140.6 mile triathlon. Before long you are reading race reports, talking with new friends in the triathlon community about their experiences, starting to plan out months and months of training, ready to challenge yourself beyond what you used to think was possible.
If this is YOU, and let’s be honest, we both know it is, Michigan Titanium is the perfect venue to push your limits and become one of “those people”. You don’t need a fancy bike, the latest gear or pay rising costs of branded races. You simply need the desire and commitment to train and dedicate yourself to the goal of covering 140.6 miles and crossing the Michigan Titanium finish line and earning the right to call yourself a TITAN.
