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...

Favorite Links:
Free Radicals Switzerland --local tri club (German) --Webcam views across Switzerland.
Cycling the Swiss Passes --a nice site describing cycling some of the mountain passes here. - 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.
Lonely 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 below!
