I came back from Krabi because I had to go the race.

The race is Spa Triathlon which is named triathlon but not real triathlon.

I’m a race director.

“Ashiyu” is Japanese style foot bath.

The participants have to wear this ”Yukata”

The yukata is frequently worn after bathing at traditional Japanese inns.

First of all, Run 3km.

Then take a foot bath and hands up ten times.

Why do I organize this race?

Triathlon is good sports, but it’s difficult to begin triathlon for begginers in sports.

We hope to want people to enjoy doing sports and become good opportunity for starting triathlon from this event.

Spa Triathlon started in 2006.

It has been held more than six races a year.

It’s foolish race but  300 participants enjoyed well.

I got 8th but it was tough day for me.
After IM Langkawi, I felt good and I thought recoverd.
On 90km mark, I realized my legs were not recoverd.
Then got a cramp in my leg.
I changed my strategy.
I thought this is for training.
I didn’t push hard.
Slow but keep this pace.
Before the race, many Japanese athlets said to me “You can’t finish because you had another ironman two weeks ago!”.
But I finishd.

Finish and running times are my worst.
Although I studied many from this race.
These are pictures from China.

 Luke led me on the swim. I could not swim fast as him on this time.

He was in sick  but every race he swim fast.

At the steepest hill. We have to climb 3times...

 If I didn’t go the camp in Krabi, I might think ” It’s so hot!  The heat is killing me!”.

But I didn’t think that.

I didn’t try to run fast, just concentrate. 

At the podium!

I really enjoyed the race.

I want to say thank you for TBB stuff!
