Next triathlon: Silicon Valley International Triathlon

SVIT

My next race is USA Productions’ Olympic length Silicon Valley International Triathlon on June 13. Olympic length courses consist of a 0.93mi swim, 24.9mi bike, and 6.2mi run.

Even though I weigh right around 200lbs I’m not going to degrade my honour by registering for the over-200lb Clydesdale class. I’ll race with all the skinny minis in the Male 30-34 class instead. To be honest, I was a little tempted by the promise of a podium opportunity, but after I heard that the Clydesdale class isn’t officially sanctioned by professional or Olympic class rules, I didn’t want to tarnish my future induction into the Triathlon Hall of Fame. No asterisks, that’s how I roll.

The course is pretty flat with only one 400ft mile-long climb on the bike section and basically no elevation change during the run. It should be fast!

Brad will be joining me on the Olympic course and his wife Jenni is going to try the Sprint course on Saturday the 12th. Hopefully my wonderful wife Sara and her wonderful sister Amelia will be cheering us on as well.
