I can still smell the foul, rotten mud. This past weekend Tough Mudder Las Vegas held their 2012 race in Beatty Nevada about 2 hours outside of Las Vegas. I loved taking picture of the event but I really wanted to jump in the mud with everyone else. Here are 130 of my best photos from the day.
If you thought September would be cool in Vegas then think again. Athletes battled against high temperatures today during the 2012 Ironman 70.3 World Championship. Water temperatures were above 80 degrees and the air temp was 95 degrees at the finish line. All the athletes that raced today are champions in my book. Hope you enjoy these pics from the race.
It arrived in my inbox a week before the event. Just some more marketing and junk email I thought, but then again, this looks pretty cool. The iGift bag allows race directors to deliver pre-race packets and coupons to athletes.
On May 11th and 12th in San Diego we found out who would represent USA Triathlon at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. It came down to this final race in deciding 3 of the 5 available slots.
These five athletes are 100% focused on London and I doubt that leaves much time for blogging or interviews. Still, I think it’s cool to follow their blogs and twitter feeds to read anything they say about their training, nutrition, or Olympic experience.
