1997 Ironman Canada (4 flat tires in one day!), 1999 Escape from Alcatraz
I took up this triathlon thing around 1994. I didn't play any sports in
high school so after starting college I thought it would be good idea to
lose a few pounds. Little did I know what I would get myself into!
I've been here in
Switzerland for a few years now now. It's an endurance sport paradise
here with great roads and a network of trails linking every town and city
in the country. And the skiing isn't too bad either...
Switzerland --local tri club (German)
TopIn.ch --Webcam views
Swiss Passes --a nice site describing cycling some of the mountain
English listing and information for some of the larger Swiss resorts
Swiss Sledding - listing for sledding runs in the country, including a
9 mile long monster at Grindlewald.
Planet -- first step for any trip planning
--my own site with travel photos, recipes, etc...
I tucked an underwater camera into my
wetsuit for Escape from Alcatraz. We looked like a big pack of flailing
seals crossing the bay...easy pickings for "the men in grey suits" down
