The Everyman Issue We’ve heard you! In our first ever “Everyman Issue,” we’ve dedicated the complete magazine from cover to cover to you, the amateur triathlete. With everything from advice from fellow age-groupers on how to fit tri training into time-crunched schedules to inspirational stories from fellow triathletes and a glimpse into the training and fueling of successful age-group athletes, this issue is jam-packed with tips to help the average age-grouper train smarter, race happy and balance a busy life. The issue also has a focus on nutrition as triathletes start their racing seasons—we have advice from a sports dietitian on how to find the right nutrition strategy for you as well as Triathlete editor picks for the best new sports nutrition products.
On the cover are Every Man Jack elite team founder Ritch Viola along with his teammates, all top-level age-groupers in San Francisco’s Bay Area. You may also notice in this issue a fresh new look—not only new fonts and colors, but also a whole new structure to the magazine with dedicated gear, training and fueling sections.
