One blog, to rule them all..

Hi everyone,

Prepare yourself for one of the most comprehensive, all encompassing blog posts of all times. This blog is 50% science, 25% sweat, 10% fun, and ~35% of that leftover water that you find in your water bottles a week after practice.

So there goes:

1) Storm the Wall

By now you have heard, maybe you were there? Maybe you took part in the epicness that was last week? In case you missed it..head over to the Facebook page and peruse.. Basically, this is what happened..




For another year, UBCTRI came out on top, winning just about everything, and breaking so many hearts in the process. There are simply too many epic backstories to recount in one blog, and therefore for the sake of brevity, I must apologize if I do any of our teams an injustice. Many photos were taken, and I am sure there will be epic odes and poems composed of our victories. But for now I will leave you with this:


2) Delicious Mile

Despite a smaller than average turnout to this semi-annual/semi-serious event the delicious mile was an epic night of epic fun. Taking a hard fought win, and at his first mile nonetheless, was Jamie "Ima Running Cyborg". Jamie overcame a hard charging Matt in the last 150 M to take the win, however  Matt was unfortunately later disqualified for having spilled over 1/2 of his last beverage. Keith and Spencer both finished strong, clocking a blazing last lap. Trash-talking, rain and episodes of near-vomiting were all there in equal measure.

3) Race Series Wrap Up

Did you think Race Series was over? Huh? The answer is NOOOOOOO! Come on guys! We have 1 event left..this Thursday - the Uphill Run! It promises to be a good one, so come out and lets try and keep the attendance high. REMINDER - you have untill April 1 to make up events. We have a lot of empty spaces on our spreadsheet so get that done!

4)Year End Banquet

Bring some food to share - dress up a little (Spandex is O.K., but strongly discouraged) and come hang out with some of the coolest athletes on campus. Rumor has it that Winston "The Silent Assasain" and Seth "Our Fearless Leader" will be performing a Karaoke rendition of Bryan Adams "Summer of 69" and other great hits. BE THERE!!

5) Ironman Asia Pacific Championships!

TriClubs very own Brendan Naef had a HUGE! showing in Australia last weekend - competing against some of the worlds best triathletes, and finishing sub-9 hours in a time of 8:49:34, and taking 17th overall at the same time. Many of our members had the opportunity to watch the race online - and it was AWESOME! Well done Brendan!

If you have made it this far - well done! That's it for now..don't forget to take in all the great stuff coming over the next 2 weeks.
