A couple of colleagues participated in a triathlon this past weekend, and we actually did good (for bunch of amateurs 🙂 )
In the beginning one colleague suggested we entered the trio-triathlon in Bruges, this is quite ok to do he said. 1km swim, 45km bike and 10 running. This is ok if you’re not going for the best possible ranking! So we entered and Tom did the swimming, Koen the biking and I ran. This was the logic team layout, matching everyone’s ‘best’ event.
We started out as a happy trio, trained a little and participated in Bruges. We finished 383 (out of 1200+) this gave us a big boost. A good result always leads to more crazy stunts right. So we got a little crazier and switched events. Koen was going to swim, I biked and Tom ran. We competed in Izegem and finished 87th.

We’re going to compete solo 😉
