Ulman Rev3 Half Full Triathlon

This weekend, last weekend and the weekend before various triathlons around the world took places of different distances, sizes, and capacities. I was scheduled to race at the Ullman/Rev3 Half Full triathlon in Columbia, Maryland on October 7th. Unfortunately, due to some last minute engagements and weddings I was not able to attend and was truly disappointed. If you know me, you know I would usually have skipped the weddings for such a great race and cause but these were of close friends and I don't have many of those.

Reason #5: Lance. He is a legend no matter how you look at it. No matter how many bad things I hear about him he still associates himself with a good cause and that I give him credit. People can argue he does it for the wrong reasons and its all about self interest, but no matter how you cut it, he still has given light to an important cause. If you have seen anyone wither away from cancer you will understand this.

Reason #4: I really wanted one of these guys! I love crab. Pretty much what it comes down to.

Rev3 has the coolest medals!
Reason #3: This is my old stomping ground. I used to live in the area and would ride this course on a weekly basis. If you want to be a stronger biker this is the course to ride. It is technical and hilly. It is also absolutely gorgeous.
Best riding in eastern Maryland.
Reason #2: My Rev3 teammates and the Rev3 staff. I really was disappointed I didn't get to hang out with the Rev3 team. From what I hear it was a fun and epic weekend as always.

Reason #1: The cause. "Its about doing something that's bigger than you, its about taking your life back, its about being involved, its about being healthy."

I will be at this race next year whether it is to race or help out. I highly recommend adding it to your race calendar for next year and can guarantee you it will not disappoint.
