“If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.” P.Z. Pearce
The Hudson river will probably lose a lot of its charm once I will be swimming on Sunday, and I promised my wife that I will do my best to not swallow any water. But am I the only one to think that it will be very cool?
This Sunday I will swim 1500 meters in the Hudson, bike 26 miles on a tandem and run 6.2 miles, finishing in Central Park. My race number will be 2916, you can follow my progress here:
It will be my first NYC triathlon, I know that it will probably be very hot and humid, but let’s see if I can break 3 hours.
My guide for the 2015 NYC marathon, Stefan will be racing on his own, he will start shortly after the pros at ~6:15 AM. This time I will be racing with Nacho, it will be our first triathlon together, we will start at 7 AM.
It’s nice to switch guides sometimes, it’s always interesting to build a new dynamic. I must confess however that Stefan is a much better rider than Nacho, I will miss him on the bike course!
