TriRiot Is …

TriRiot is a web show, blog and podcast that explores the transformative nature of triathlon and other endurance sports.  It is about why we do what we do.  It is the 10,000 meter perspective from overhead and it is the day to day  perspective on little things that age groupers deal with.  Most of all, it is a perspective through the lens of my life’s camera.  Which brings us to the next paragraph…

Who Is Behind TriRiot?

My name is Lowell Gould and friends call me LG.  Since 2006, I’ve been training and racing in swim events, bike rallies, running races, duathlons,  obstacle races and triathlons.   I claim no other qualifications for professing my love of triathlon.  I simply love this sport and hope to bring more athletes to it.  Although life for me began in Pacific Palisades California, I consider Tucson Arizona my home town.  Currently I live in Pender County North Carolina with my wife, my daughter, some horses and many chickens, cats and dogs.  Among my titles are:

  • Soldier
  • Cowboy
  • Scientist
  • Data geek
  • Father
  • Husband
  • Cubical monkey
  • Code monkey
  • Horseshoer

All age groupers have interesting resumes.  What’s yours?

Thanks for your interest and I hope to see you at the races.

LG

  1. LG,
    Thank you for all this great information. I was registered to do IM70.3Chatt, then pushed to IM70.3NC, now I’m back to 2021 703Chatt. But, I WANT TO RACE NOW.
    So, I am coming to Wilmington with my wife and we kept our hotel reservation.
    I would like to know if u have a good 56 mile bike route I can do, as a “mock race”? I’m going to swim 1.2mi before i leave GA, then do 56 on the bike and 13.1 run on that Saturday, 10/17/20.
    Any ideas?

    1. Hey Marlin,

      I’m back to Chatty70.3 2021 also. If you REALLY want to race now, there may be a spot left in the ProAm race in WhiteLake on 10/17. Check it out: https://www.trisignup.com/Race/NC/Elizabethtown/wolhalf

      Otherwise, you can ride the IMNC course. I did it Sunday and it’s a really great course. The only problem is that there are three metal bridge crossings. When traffic is bad, I walk across the bridges. Riding the bike in Wilmington is a bit scary so I normally ride in Pender County. One route I used to do a lot starts from the parking lot at Cape Fear Elementary School. It’s about nine miles to US421 and from there you can head north on 421 or follow NC210 toward White Lake. You should be able to find all that on Google Maps. Let me know if you need any more info. Hope that helps
