This morning, I just got back home to Leysin from my 6-day trip to the Philippines. I raced the Cobra IRONMAN 70.3 Philippines in Cebu last sunday and did some media/sponser work for our ALASKA Team TBB Philippines . It was a great little trip with a spectacular race venue and many new impression of a colorful and very unique country.
