Now this will be actually be my first race back in Miami! The Trilogy always bring back good memories and I love the course.
This was a special one since it was my padawan’s first triathlon ever. So the training that I gave him it was going to pay off here! So far I have been putting some training here and there but always chilling, nothing super serious. Probably this race will actually test my fitness levels.
During race morning I was giving details to my padawan. Checking his transition, tips on the swim start, and how to go around the race in general. The final purpose was just to finish and officially become a triathlete!
The Trilogy has a really calm bay swim, the bike starts hard with the climb to the Rickenbacker Causeway Bridge, and the run is a nice mixture of soft trail that is always shaded (this is highly appreciated in Miami’s inferno weather).
As always and in survival mode but in a certain way I was happy to race home again. Almost 2 years since I last raced in Miami!
At the end everything was about my padawan’s first race! I waited for him in the finish line to congratulate him first hand. He looked like shit like everyone who finishes a triathlon but guess what… he was HOOKED!!! With a time of 1:16, I have created a little monster.
You may be wondering his name… he is BETO as well!! haha
