Kawazu "triathlon", Izu hanto, 河津トライアスロン、伊豆半島

Kawazu inaugural "triathlon" and the 2016 triathlon season is in the books. I was happy with a 1:02 bike (without transitions) where I averaged 37.1 kph, and a 42 minute run, but we were dismayed by the JTUs complete lack of sack. The JTU cancelled the swim due to "roughwaters" 30 minutes before the swim start. We stood in shock in our wetsuits on the pristine beach thinking, "are they out of their minds??"

I got 25th overall, 11th in the ultra-competitive 40-49 AG in this spontaneous duathlon. I would have been first if I could only have fired up the handy time machine to next year.  :)


the most unusual bike transition...

Great to get the Tycoon support!

Tim and the Ryano gearing up for the race...

Those are the waves on the beach the morning of the race...big enough to cancel a swim?

You are the weiner!

A free towel for your efforts...

Catch you in 2017!
