In between training and hosting some out-of-town guests this weekend, I checked out the New England Multisport Expo. While it was fun to drool over some new gear and question new nutrition supplements, I have to admit I got a little taken away when I watched this Computrainer time trial:
Can you identify some of the racers? That’s Karen Smyers third in from the far end – she’s an Ironman and ITU World Champion and recent inductee to the USAT Hall of Fame! And, Scott Tinley – a 2 time Ironman world champion is there! It was a short, but intense race – and I couldn’t help clap and holler as two of the racers were within 8 ft of each other for the finish.
It’s official – I am a triathlon nerd.
I wandered around the rest of the expo checking out some great things like Fit Planet – a company that helps make races more green and Urban-Epic – a new kind of triathlon festival in cities. If there is an expo in your area, I would definitely recommend checking it out!
