Deuces Wild Triathlon Festival

In times like this, my body is speechlessly pissed it got my brain for a partner. But deep down inside, it also likes the challenge.

And so coachubby and I are driving to Show Low, Arizona, tomorrow to participate in the Deuces Wild 1/2 ironman triathlon (DeuceMan), then follow it up with the Deuces Wild XTERRA on Sunday--just 5 days after riding 300 miles in less than 40 hours, massacring my quads and any ounce of focus my brain had left.

Smart? Probably not.
Fun? Definitely.
Plus, I'll get to see some of my favorite people (Xterra buddies) as well as two more of my favorite people (my parents) throughout the weekend.

The true test of just how much my quads can take, and how far I can go without inhaling caffeine in any form, will be under way at 6:30am on Saturday.

If you're in AZ, come cheer! The weather calls for highs in the mid-70s. Fabulous.

See you out there!


  1. I can't wait!!! Expected finish times for you all on Saturday for those of us arriving and hoping to cheer you on? I figure the harder I cheer you into racing Saturday the better chance I have of beating you on Sunday :)

  2. Ha! If we judged by previous 1/2 events, I'd finish around 12pm, and an hour ahead of me! But there's no telling what's going to happen this time!
