I headed off to San Diego for a quick trip to meet up with the rest of the BMWPerformance Team as part of the global launch of the new 3 Series Sedan.   It was a fun (and busy) trip and I am honored to be part of such a phenomenal group of athletes on […]

2012 has been off to a good start, nothing too exciting has been going on.  I am just getting my training dialed in and making every day count rather than counting down the days for ITU WCS in San Diego…AKA US Olympic Trials. So far things are moving along as planned. I headed back to Colorado […]

I am a big fan of the off-season and making sure there is actually an “off” part of my season.   Its extremely important for me to actually take time away from the rigid, disciplined schedule that I maintain about 10 months out of the year.  I am fortunate to be able to live my dream.  […]

It’s been a while since I’ve written anything worth reading. The problem I have with my fellow triathlete’s blog post is that they typically tend to get repetitive and seem uninteresting after a few reads. Who’s really that interested in reading race reports if there isn’t some sort of valuable take away in the end? […]

Running in icy conditions from Matt Chrabot on Vimeo. Running on snow and ice can be slippery. I’ve been using Ice Trekkers the past year and they have worked very well. They aren’t as light as Yaktrax, but are much more durable when running between snowy surfaces on pavement. Sure I can get some snow […]

Yesterday in the race briefing the ITU reamed us out for acting like goofballs on the bike in London and not creating enough buzz with the media. First of all, I think the ITU has come a long way, and is doing an excellent job. I’m glad to see the athletes are really starting to […]

The 2010 season has been another breakthrough year for me. Kicking things off with a half marathon in February running a 1:10 on a hilly course with heavy volume and limited tempo work to consistently performing in just about all of my races. 3 Podiums thus far: 1st Miami International, 2nd Monterrey World Cup, 2nd […]

I flew into Monterrey with just a few days of recovery under my belt from the WCS race in Sydney. I was feeling fresh, ranked #1 in the race, and optimistic about a great performance in the Fundidora Parque. The race venue was a former steel foundry from 1900 to 1986. The park contains several […]

Endurance Planet March 24, 2010 People have been butchering Matt Chrabot’s last name for years. He’s been called everything from “Shar-bow” to “Crabpot.” But after his win at the Miami International Triathlon, Chrabot (pronounced shär-bòt) will be a recognizable name to professional triathletes everywhere. Listen to Matt in this Endurance Planet podcast.

Recently, I decided to make an effort to “step up” as “they” tend to call it, and run a half marathon. I flew down to Austin, Texas to test out my running legs to RACE my first ever Half Marathon. I ran the Virginia Beach Rock and roll Half Marathon back in 2003 under my […]

What a way to end a season! The 2009 training and racing year has been a learning experience. Testing out different training and racing strategies, technique, and abilities. After what felt like a roller coaster of performances, I ended it on a high note. My goal for the last race of 2009 was to crack […]

from the new www.triathlon.org 3.0! With many athletes, both Age Group and elite, having to travel across several (or in some cases, a lot of) time zones to the Gold Coast ITU Triathlon World Championships, they will feel fatigued and may be unable to sleep at an appropriate time. They may also suffer a loss […]

I had an excellent time in Chicago. I stayed with Jillian Wagner and Mike Ronkoske. A great couple. In fact, so great that Mike went to St. Bedes Elementary school the same time I did! He is two years older than me, so we really don’t remember each other. Two years apart feels like a […]

I’ll be heading to the windy in just a few hours for the Chicago Triathlon. This will be my second time racing in the Windy City. I competed back in 2007. Conditions were hot and racing with only one water bottle was a mistake. I ran out about half way through the bike and didn’t […]

Just had the race of a lifetime yesterday in Tuscaloosa. Finally pulled off the performance I’ve been looking for all season long. The first half of the season was mainly an experiment to see how I responded to lighter training loads. No injuries, but not enough haulin’ of ass. The setback was just a setup […]

I was sitting in the Steam Room today, trying to prep for Nationals when I realized it’s been a while since I’ve raced. Last one was in Kitzbuhel, Austria on July 11th. July 11th turned out to be a cold, rainy, miserable race for me (and Team USA) that day.Nationals are being held in Tuscaloosa, […]

Getting out of paying airline bike fees is something I’ve been trying to tackle since day one in the sport. United’s bike fees are $175 Domestic each way and $200 international…$250 if you’re flying to Asia! The hard case with bike stickers are a dead give away. One thing about the softcase is your bike […]

This video on what’s know as “the Persistence Hunt” blew me away. A group of hunters ran down an antelope to pure exhaustion during the hottest part of the day in the Kalahari Desert. It’s interesting that humans were perhaps designed after all to become an endurance animal. -Skin rather than fur to cool our […]
