Tampa – Cliff Davis of Tampa, FL’s Blog

As a real estate developer in Tampa, FL, Clifford J Davis has had over $200 million worth of successful projects in his 25-year career. Outside of his work life, Tampa, FL resident Cliff Davis serves as a board member for multiple charities, including PARC, a Florida-based nonprofit aimed at improving the quality of life for disabled children and adults. Like most charities, PARC accepts both one-time and recurring donations, but they have also come up with a creative way to raise money while helping local businesses out with advertising. Among the services they offer, PARC provides free transportation to and from their Discovery Learning Center for children, and rides to and from work for adults. The Keep PARC on the Road program allows local Pinellas County businesses to advertise directly on PARC’s transportation vans. The organization says their vans regularly travel to high-traffic areas, making the program an ideal way to build business and show the community you support a good cause. PARC will place a magnetic sign on their van promoting your business for $3,000-per-year, or $1,750 for six months. For the same price, you can instead have PARC place your graphic sign on their van’s window. Lastly, PARC offers a partial wrap of their van with your logo for three years at $7,000. To learn more about PARC and their creative Keep PARC on the Road program, visit them online at parc-fl.org.

FishHawk Triathlon Club Gears Up For Season, New Members Welcome

When River Hills resident Theresa McComb began training for her first triathlon 10 years ago, she did it as a member of the FishHawk Triathlon Club which gave her an advantage many athletes do not have, the support of a group of like-minded people. The FTC, a multi-sport club dedicated to developing athletes and promoting fitness and camaraderie, is gearing up for its busy season and is always looking for new members. During a triathlon, athletes complete three different sporting events, usually a swim, followed by a bike ride, then a run. There are many different distances for triathlons, from sprints which are made up of a half mile swim, 12.4 mile bike ride and a 3.1 mile run, to a full Iron Man with a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and marathon length 26.2 mile run. According to club president Andrew Ehlbeck, the group has about 70 members from throughout the Brandon area. Members train together doing group works outs, bike rides, runs and swims. There is a group Facebook page where members post their training schedule and invite others to join them on. McComb and her training partner Kelly Ratcliff, who is also a River Hills resident, completed an Iron Man triathlon last year in North Carolina and credits the group for motivating them to keep up with the rigorous training schedule that has them waking up at 4 a.m. many days.

Becky McMorries

I started competing in triathlons in 2006 and I have competed in over 70 triathlon and running events including a 4 Ironman events and have qualified for Boston. In 2015 I competed at the ITU Age Group World Championships in Chicago in both the sprint and Olympic distance races and placed in the top 50 in my age group. I began coaching in the fall of 2010 and over the last six years I have helped grow the sport in my area. I have coached several hundred athletes to finishes in triathlon and running events ranging from their first 5K to the Ironman. In the past I have attended the USAT Youth and Junior coaching clinic and held certifications through USA Cycling and ACSM. I prefer beginner and intermediate athletes who are new to the sport or new to the distance. I like to introduce them to all the sport has to offer and help them navigate the complexities associated with training for three sports. I also like to work with those athletes that are busy and have to maximize their training time fit workouts into a busy family, work and life schedule. I work as a triathlon coach and teach science to teenagers. I have personal experience in balancing family, work, and training and want to help other busy athletes who want to accomplish their race goals. I prefer athletes who have a heart rate monitor and/or power meter, but if you’re new to the sport, I can work with no equipment as well.

The Able Cains

Despite my back pain, I pulled off a first place award in my age group, 16th overall female, and the fastest 5k I’ve run yet, and I couldn’t believe it! It was painful, and it was hard to get through, but God gave me the strength, will-power and determination to do it. I’m not sure I could run that fast again if I tried. I ran a 5k in 18:54! I prayed for a few minutes when I started running and asked God to provide me with strength and to help me be strong. His power far exceeds mine and it was evident by my run time. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Now, on to the back pain I have battled back pain from a car accident four years ago, and I refuse to let it hold me back on a regular basis. The difference lies in the fact that some days I can put it in the back of my mind and ignore it and others it’s all I can think about because it’s so painful. Who knows why because I didn’t change my regular training at all I have not been able to ride my bike, run, swim or lift weights like I normally would. In order to control my back pain, I: invest in good running shoes, work my postural muscles through yoga, get regular massages, use Epsom salts, love my Biofreeze, and have started seeing a chiropractor. After seeing my chiropractor last week, I have a new plan of attack for improving my power, speed and hopefully my back pain.
