Tomorrow, as far as I am concerned marks the start of my 2010 triathlon season. I am shipping out south to Chile and Argentina for two weeks where I will compete in my first ITU-format triathlons! This entails a draft-legal format for which I have been anxiously waiting since I began competing in triathlons.
I love the competitive spirit that presents itself amongst a tight pack of energized riders (I know this from cycling groups), because everyone involved tends to feed off of one another, thereby propelling the peloton down the road at a quicker pace! In a triathlon, presumably, this allows the competitors to partake in real head to head battles once off the bike. I can't tell you how much I've been licking my chops for this opportunity!
It will also be great to have a few Americans down there as well like Chris Foster and Steve Sexton. Those guys are both very solid triathletes and I'm sure are just as hungry as I am to start their 2010 season off on the right foot!
The hotels down there claim to have wifi so I'm going to do my best to keep you all informed with the latest and greatest from the streets of Vine Del Mar and La Paz...!
Talk to you in a few. Thanks for checking in!
