February Team Newsletter


Welcome back to another edition of the IRLAG Newsletter.  We have more great information to share with you all about training, team support and special events coming up in our community this February. Please take a moment to read through the news so you can stay on top of all the fun. Thank you all so much for being a part of our IRLAG community and supporting women of all ages and abilities in our efforts to empower and motivate all women in endurance sports. 

IRaceLikeAGirl Team Member Spotlight

Each month, we will highlight one of our fabulous athletes in this newsletter.  This February, we would like you to meet Ellen Messinger-Patton from Reno, Nevada.

How long have you been racing and what distances/discipline do you enjoy the most? 

I’ve been a runner for ~7 years, and a triathlete for ~5 years. I like running the best, but have come to enjoy swimming a lot as well. I haven’t settled on a favorite distance yet, I get the itch to do different ones all the time!

What do you consider a highlight of your athletic journey to date? 

Crossing the finish line of my first 70.3 was an incredible moment. I didn’t think it was possible for me to achieve something like that, and when I did it was complete and utter unbridled joy. 

What does "IRLAG" mean to you? What is your favorite part about this team? *

For me, racing like a girl means being who you are authentically while supporting others who are doing are doing the same. I feel my best when I’m surrounded by strong women, and I love being part of a community. 

Share some special aspects of your life with us outside of your athletic endeavors. 

In my normal life, I’m a health inspector in Reno NV. I’ve been married to my wonderful husband for about 8 years, and we have two greyhounds. I volunteer coach for Girls On The Run, and have been asked to help coach a local Middle School Cross Country team next year. I use endurance athletics as a stress release, and it is my main hobby. I’m terrible at keeping in contact with people, but am trying to be better so I can make new friends!

It is fantastic to learn a little bit more about you, Ellen!

Feature Articles from IRLAG Teammates and Girls Get Gritty

This Month we are featuring an article on strength training for triathletes from Nathalie de Champlain who is a team mate and owner of Caliloko! She is sharing her top reasons why strength training is vital for endurance athletes and she has a specific training plan for you which she presented to our virtual camp last month. Also, make sure you check out her amazing compression line at I love love love my Caliloko items!

“Due to the overwhelming amount of time that a triathlete needs to spend in the pool, on the bike and running on the road or treadmill, many  triathletes sacrifice strength training in favor of additional swim, bike or run sessions. 

As a consequence, general strength is too often lacking for age group athletes. Combining multi-joint and full-body movements, targeting major muscle groups used for swimming, cycling, and running, is for sure the best way to feel strong during the race season.” Her complete article is linked below. Enjoy!

Top Reasons Why Strength Training For Triathletes Is Key • Caliloko

We also have an inspiring new blog up written by Stephanie Jinright! 

You can read all about her “Newbie Triathlete Journey” here on the GirlsGetGritty website!  Thank you for sharing, Steph!

With this series on GirlsGetGritty, I hope to show people what a person can accomplish with a little determination and hard work. I’ll be posting regularly about my experiences as I train and hope to introduce you to some of the key figures in this aspect of my life. I’ll also try to have a focus topic/theme for each week such as fueling, cross training, nutrition, menstruation, support networks, etc. I hope to bring you along on this journey to give you some laughter & some motivation and to encourage you to set your own goals and push through barriers to reach them.”
