He Did It

Frenchguy finally hit the start button. He officially debuted his triathlon dream last Saturday at the Lac des Settons (~100 km from Dijon). An hour, 29 minutes and 28 seconds was the time he took to finish a total of 500 m swim, 21 km bike and 5 km run - pause to change accessories in each step included. Not bad for a debutant. Well, at least he wasn’t the last one to arrive and Louna was overly proud of his Papa.

Swim - At the starting block, Frenchguy lost among the participants.

Bike - Frenchguy aiming for the dangerous curve at the last uphill slope before the finish line – bike category.

Run - Arriving at the finish line with Louna (notice the cumulated time on the right side of the finish line). She joined her Papa around 5 meters away from the finish line. She was then interviewed by the announcer to which she willingly replied.

Next destination: Hawaii, USA for the Ironman Triathlon Challenge (just dreaming, lol).

I bet sportive din yan paglaki..she have the best trainer, her papa :-) I can imagine how happy and proud she is for her papa. Like my kids was overjoyed too when thier papounet showed them his underwater target-shooting medals and pics/videos. Too bad we just can't bring them in the event.

Tintin, nope. I only had my DSLR cam that time, so no vid. She was asked her name, her age and where she lives, hehe.

Cookie, it's only a dream, lol. The Ironman triathlon is too difficult, longer distances and there's a qualifying scheme. so hanggang dream na lang.

Lucille, yep, quite difficult nga to bring them in that kind of sport, lol.

Geri, thanks.
