Birthday weekend!

  Hey this weekend was my b-day and it was loaded with events!

It started with my 24th b-day, then with a 8am Saturday 2 hour schedule ride that started at TBB Subic ride with coach Melvin who was prepping for his return to competition after 2 years.

10h30 and I was already eating my b-day cake with my Joyette, after a nap I went for a swim, meet with some local friends, eat pizza, get race kit for race tomorrow!

This was an Olympic distance, 1st of the series of local Pino race series where I was able to get a “guest racer” slot for free, getting thins for free, en enormous aspect of being a developing professional triathlete!

Wake up

Bananas, coffee, hardboiled eggs with salt

Ride to race start in the darkest

6h30ish Race time start

Swim no wetsuit cool water


Get flat @ 15km on rear wheel on a road that I have ridden over a 1000 times

Fix flat in about 6 minutes?

Ride in 2nd place for a while

Feel the strain of the race and sudden stop for puncture


Slip on my pair of AVIA Bolts 2

From first strides I know this will be good run

Run fast with the goal of lapping people over a 3.3km run course

Win race by 9 mins

Greeted by Joyette

Run a victory lap, literally

Ride back home

Figure out that I only mustered 65 PSI on fixing my clincher wheel

Have a victory meal!

Ride to the pool for another swim

Homemade lasagna

Hot shower
