Welcome to Miami

After a great month of training in Australia, I had a quick 3 day turn around in San Diego before heading off to Miami for the Nautica South Beach Triathlon. Although it was a first year event, it couldn’t have gone more smoothly. It was an awesome event; everyone had a great time and a lot of money was raised for the St. Jude’s Research hospital. This race was a different experience for me, because instead of doing the whole thing, I was the cyclist on a relay team. But not just any relay team–4 time Olympic swimmer Dara Torres led us out with a blistering swim and fellow K-Swiss athlete, tennis star Anna Kournikova sealed our first place relay placing with a stellar run.

In fact, K-swiss pretty much dominated the event, with Chris Lieto and Ben Collins going one, two in the men’s pro race and Leanda Cave winning the women’s. With no run leg to worry about, I was able to really push it & my bike split was the fastest of the day, proving that I wasn’t just hanging out at the beach ALL month in OZ!
