Thursday in Mont Tremblant was a busy day with a couple workouts, checking-in to the race, and strolling around the expo. I had a chance to speak with Skechers Performance, STAC Performance, Naak, and D’Ornellas. Also, I talked to Alex VanderLinden, 70.3 specialist, about his Ironman debut, and Matthew Shanks who is doing his 15th Ironman race and aiming for a top 10.
