Love to run... did I mention that I love to run? Follow me as I run in really scenic places in my native Trinidad, and soon in different places across the World...

    There is a half of Sunday that I’m considering doing. Considering that I haven’t had a good run in a couple of months, it will require a bit more than considering. But, I’ve run at least 2 half’s with no training whatsoever, so its a possibility.

    There is also a relay option, and I’ve asked a few running friends if they want to attempt it. Will need 6 persons, 2 miles or so each. Only 2 others have said yes, but thinking I’ll do the full thing anyway.

    I should run a bit this week though. That may help. Just a tad.

    National Sprint & Olympic Triathlon Championships

    There were many familiar faces on the podium at the National Sprint & Olympic Triathlon Championships, held this weekend in Chaguramas by the Trinidad and Tobago Triathlon Federation. Last year’s champion David Cottle was unable to attend to defend his title, but former National Champion Ancil Greene did not disappoint with a first place finish. He was followed in closely by Ryan Mendes and Jonah Camps, both of whom continue to perform consistently at a high level.

    Among the ladies, Kiyomi Rankine was the lone female competitor to take the plunge in the Olympic distance, and put in a commendable performance.

     It was a close finish in the Sprint category which saw National Junior Duathlon Champion Joshua Ho in first place, followed closely by Nicolas Mitchell, another consistent performer. The top three was rounded off by Matthew Chung. 

     Renee Chin Lee and Maia Nieves were the top performers among the ladies. There was also a high level of participation among the age groupers, including Bruce Mac Intosh, a regular participant at 70 years of age.

    This is Neal Petersen. I had no idea who he was until the 10 year old skipper of the boat I was in told me. He’s been in Trinidad for the past few days, on another trip around the World it seems.
That’s the life…

    Been a hectic couple of days. Yesterday was the National Triathlon Championships, and in some aspects it did not go as planned. All the events came off, and there were no incidents, but logistically it was a nightmare.

    I was out in a dinghy all morning…

    For one, many of the volunteers did not show up. We did not get funding from the government, and one of the sponsors pulled out at the last minute. The site organisers also did not clean the venue before we got there. We had to rush to get things done as a result with few hands, so all the bases were not adequately covered. It was an intense day, but all ended up OK in the end. 

    Being a sport administrator is hard work. Apart from working full time, you have to put aside a lot of time to get events done and manage the athletes under your purview. And when there are few hands, it makes it a lot more difficult. But someone has to do it, or the sport does not develop.

    It’s not considered stalking if it’s your wife, right?

    Not a Suarez fan, and this is hilarious.

    So tomorrow…

    …morning my schedule has unexpectedly opened up, and it looks like I just convinced myself to the the birthday challenge I neglected to to on my birthday 2 weeks ago- with is to ride up Lady Chancellor Hill 10 times. 

    It’s likely to take me over 4 hours, as a round trip usually takes 25 minutes to go up and down… I will start early, and expect to finish by 8:30 or 9:00. Should start at 4:00 or thereabouts. Each round trip is about 4.5 miles.

    Realistically I should do this before the month is up, so it still ranks a a birthday challenge. The tricky part is that I have client meetings in the afternoon, so I will have to recover by then.

    Now just to convince the wife that this is a good idea…
