San Diego ITU Highlights

Fun video I've borrowed from Triathlon.org highlighting the San Diego ITU race I did. There is a conspicuous lack of footage from the steeper parts of the bike course. Not even the photographers wanted to climb that hill!




Note to self... next time you do a race, point towards the heavens when finishing. It evidently increases your chances of being filmed. That or win the women's race.

Watching the Eclipse

Was it the eclipse causing these reflections on the wall?

This photo was taken with an iPhone and a pair of "eclipse glasses".

2012 ITU World Series - San Diego

On Saturday, I participated in the 2012 ITU World Series - San Diego.  This was an olympic distance race - 1500m swim, 40K bike (including two climbs up La Jolla Mesa BLVD!), and a 10K run.

I was placed in the 40-45 Mens age group, and those are the fast guys! I finished the race in 3:14:51 which put me in 118/151 in the age group.

Here's some of the gang from Active (Aaron Waldman, myself, Jim Sola, and Marc Villanueva) as we wait around for the swim start:



Here's me right before my swim:

 

Bryan Crosby, Jim, Marc, Marc's wife Mine (who did the sprint distance), and me after the race:





I took off my medal because it was chaffing my sun-burnt neck, but clearly I didn't think about the photos.

Here are some "borrowed" photos from the official photographer of my finish.



And finally, a recovery dip in the hot tub with my fans:

Piano Recital

Melanie had her first piano recital today. She played Ode to Joy, Old MacDonald Had a Farm, and Yankee Doodle Dandy. As you can see (and hear) from the video below, she did an awesome job!
