Ben and his Edge 705 explore trails around Lake Tahoe


2008_10_9_incline_004 Garmin-sponsored triathlete Ben Collins shares his training and racing experiences with the Garmin Edge 705 and Forerunner 405.

Today I arrived in Incline Village, NV. It’s a break from the monotony of PT and orthopedic visits and from doing out and back runs on the side of a completely flat bike trail in Seattle. My knee is feeling better and I’m finally starting to get back into somewhat normal training. With just 29 days left in the season, that’s a great thing. So here I am in a new town, getting ready to train by myself on uncharted roads and trails (to me). Today I went for a short spin to get the airplane out of my legs, and realized why so many people come to Lake Tahoe for a vacation. It is beautiful here! I was so captured by the sights that I alternated between being nearly hit by cars on the highway and nearly drifting off the side of the road. Later in the day I ran with my friend Courtenay Brown on part of the Xterra US National Championship course, which was way more fun than my bike trail at home. Now, if I can relearn to breathe at 6,400 feet, I’m in for a great weekend training trip.
