Devin's Olympic Triathalon

Over the summer, I decided to train for an Olympic distance triathalon (1500M swim, 24Mile bike and 10K run). The only problem was a week before the race, I still didn't have a road bike. So a couple of days before the race, I found a bike on craigslist and trained with it a couple of times. I had a great time competing in the race--I finished in about 2 hours 50 minutes, which was 20 minutes faster than my goal.

Next up, I am going to do a half ironman next fall. Lynette bought me new Nike shoes for Christmas to help me in my training and I am excited for the race.

I have found that triathalons are a great way to stay in shape, to push my limits and I like the variety with the three sports.

Lynette is a great coach, giving me running, eating and race day support!


  1. Way to go Devin and way to be a good coach Lynette! Did the bike you used have a basket? I bet you wished you were riding my mountain bike! Mike and I want to do a triathlon this summer, we should find one and all meet up!

  2. Way to go, Devin!!! What a great coach you have in Lynette!
