Before I decided to volunteer I was planning on going to the half Ironman because my half alien, half Ironman friend was racing. You may remember Brett from older posts. He is the person who introduced me to this crazy world of triathlon. He is also my latest hero! I’ll have you know he came out of the water shortly after the pros.
Volunteering with Cal Tri was right up there with one of the most amazing experiences of my life. We worked the Transition 1, so we got a VIP view of all the pros transitioning out of the water.
Just three little pro bums transitioning. Not a bad view, eh?
I may have even met Karena from Tone It Up. It’s hard to believe that she is even more friendly and gorgeous in person. We may have gotten a little too close for her comfort during this picture of Karena transitioning. She was a real sport about it though!
Pro triathlete Andy Potts handed out the medals after he finished the race. Talk about amazing!
Let’s be honest… I wasn’t just volunteering this weekend. I may have been scoping out the course for next year. The swim in the harbour looks nice and calm, but I heard there is one hill on the bike that some people walk!!! Eeek… training is necessary!
Spectating is seriously a sport! I was at the race for ten hours volunteering and watching the triathletes cross the finish line. After a long day, I needed a pick me up so I stopped by Juice It Up to test out their new raw juice menu. The Detoxifier is my favorite!
Juice It Up wants you to test out their new menu too, so they are giving away four $5 giftcards. Enter to win using rafflecopter below. I will email the winners next Monday.
