Why does the team like Nuun? Our athletes LOVE the taste of Nuun. It’s light, effervescent and always refreshing while racing, training and recovering from a workout. Nuun is super simple, easy to carry while running or biking and supplies the electrolytes our athletes need for optimal balance.
Where is the team’s favorite place to train? Why? Our favorite place to train and most popular team workouts are our weekly morning swims in Lake Washington in the summer. We often jump into the lake and enjoy beautiful sunrises with clear views of with Mt. Rainier. It’s a very peaceful swim, especially when the water is warm enough to go without a wetsuit, and a great way to start your day. It’s also a fun time to meet up after our swim with fellow teammates at Starbucks or Madison Park Bakery.
Upcoming races: In July, Pauole Sport had a strong showing at Ironman Canada where we earned 1st place in the Ironman Triclub competition. We also raced Lake Stevens 70.3 in August and many other races this summer including: USAT National & World Championships, Penticton Challenge, Black Diamond Half/Olympic/Sprint, Kirkland Sprint, Ironman Arizona, and Ironman World Championships. (We have 4 Ironman qualifiers).
Pauole Sport was named The Best Triathlon Club in the Northwest by Competitor Magazine (2011-2013). Pauole Sport placed Top 5 Overall in the 2013 Ironman Triclub Competition.
