Reaching Your New Years Resolutions

Featured Tri-Cal Employees No Comments »


Spend less. Save more. Eat less. Exercise more. You know the drill. 2015 is here and we get to wipe the slate clean once again. It’s time to write a fresh list of New Year’s resolutions – ones you’ll actually keep this time throughout the entire year...maybe.

See, it’s that last part that’s tricky: sticking to your resolutions. 40 percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions, but only about 8 percent of us achieve them.

"My goal for 2015 is to accomplish the goals of 2014 which I should have done in 2013 because I made a promise in 2012 and planned in 2011."

Kid FinishPeople love inspiring stories, tried and tested advice, and pictures to showcase personalities. At Tri-California we are a very different type of Event Production Company – we grew up with the sport when it was new and continue to believe it’s a lifestyle, not just a sport and not just a business. On January 1st, we will be re-launching our blog Exercise with Purpose with new direction, new content and a way to create a community around the sport we love so dearly.

We would like to open our world up to our athletes and show them what inspires us, what got us to this point, and in turn, inspire a new generation of athletes. We want you to join with comments, telling us what you are looking for, have conversations with us and we are here for your feedback. We will establish ourselves by including our blog experts from the industry including coaches, nutritionists, athletes who have insider tips and industry leaders like Bob Babbitt, Scott Tinley, Heather Jackson, Sean Watkins, Jesse Thomas, and many more top names in the sport.

Kid FinishCome on…. I’m sure you have all envisioned yourself crossing the finish line with the new Katy Perry song playing in your head.

“I’ve got the eye of a tiger, a fighter, dancing through the fire. Cause I am a champion and your gonna hear me ROAR.“ –Katy Perry

I’ve got the eye of a tiger
Picture yourself getting ready for your swim start. It’s the very beginning of the race and you start to get in the zone, you find your eyes starting to narrow as you flash forward to being in the water, riding, and running. You start shaking out your muscles, you fix your cap so it is just right, and then its time for goggles, “your tiger eyes”. Once those goggles go on, there is no turning back. The excitement and nerves are starting to over power you as your wave gets closer to the line. You are ready to pounce…


Recipe: Artichoke Pasta Salad

A delicious artichoke pasta salad for lunch? Why not!

We had the same thought here at Tri-Cal. Yes, we turned our office into the “Tri-Cal Kitchen” for the day as we happily tested some pasta salad ideas for finisher food at Pacific Grove this year.

The Tri-Cal staff quickly found out who the real “chef’s” were as we teach our fellow intern, Emily, how to chop onions correctly. I guess we can be a little hard on each other here and there, but we didn’t think our critique would actually make her cry… Oh wait, maybe that was just the onion.

As we dance our way around the kitchen cooking noodles and sautéing our add-ins, we brainstorm as a team to figure out other yummy toppings we can add in.

As the freeway signs start counting down and I make my way down the now known “nasty grade”, my mind is still filled with the slue of post college grad thoughts. The typical. “What am I doing with my life?”
