Woohoo! Another successful race series, and winners of the Vince Lavallee cup have been dubbed. May there be many more race series events to come!
Thanks to all those who participated, we look forward to seeing you guys out with the club next term.
In case you were wondering, Vince Lavallee is a legend of the Triathlon Club, much like Rocky Balboa in the boxing world or Zelda in "Legend of Zelda". I'd like to thank him for donating an important award to the UBC Tri Club. And a thank you to our sponsors for another awesome term. Without your ongoing support we wouldn't be able to do all the cool stuff we do (but don't worry your support is not being used toward anything like our beer mile).
TO THE BEER MILE! -->!!!!!
Above: There was a pretty big crowd out for the race. No surprise there. The Beer mile kinda… Is a BIG DEAL.
juicing earlier that day. Fortunately, he was reinstated and re-qualified as a racer once we found out that the juicing only pertained to juicing oranges to make smoothies earlier that day. Mmmmmmmmmm smoothies.
One man adorned with a Movember Stache' conquered the beer mile with a smile on his face, claiming the moustache would make him faster THAN EVER BEFORE. Dylan stepped up to the challenge though and transformed into the beer mile master. You could read his power level from (beer-able) miles away.
While, Nick could not join us for the race [as he was racing an important 10km the next morning], he did wield a pizza box above his head to stay dry while cheering everyone on. Another note-able member of the cheering squad was Tia who set-up her iPad as an awesome timer for the race!
Da pizza party was great, er'body loves a good pizza!
Try to stay in shape, come up with some new goals, and most of all, HAVE FUN!
