Jordanelle Triathlon!

23 August 2009
Yesterday, I competed in the Jordanelle Olympic Triathlon and it was pretty much amazing! I absolutely LOVED it! It was definitely one of the hardest things that I have ever done in under three hours, but so worth it. For those of you who don't know, it is a 1K Swim, a 40K Bike, and a 10K Run. I did that just under 3 hours with a time of 2:58.15. I was hoping to be under 3 hours and I accomplished my goal. I placed 8th in the 20-24 age group, 93rd out of the men, and 135 overall. I'm pretty proud of my accomplishment. I was also one of the first people out of the water (only about a minute behind the leader). It is something that I definitely want to do again or possibly an Ironman. I've always wanted to do an Ironman, but I know that I won't have much time in medical school and after that so it will have to be in the next year. We'll see if that happens. Here are some pictures of me competing...

I heard that the only reason you did this was to have an excuse to post hot, shirtless pictures of yourself on your blog and facebook. ;P

Congrats on completing the tri. I did the one in LA a few years back ... and then I retired.

Max,
You know me too well... Those pics were just for you! I've got more of me in a speedo that I didn't post. ;)

Thanks Silus and Ben! :)

I have to admit that I was a little disappointed to see you in a plain black jammer, rather than something skimpy and designer. AussieBum forever! :D
