Humbling Transitions

April 27, 2011 Fitness No Comments

My transition times at Wildflower last year were 4:40 for T1 and 2:12 for T2. In my age group, I was solidly in the middle of the pack, but there is obvious room for improvement here. The fastest time for T1 was 2:30 and 1:27 for T2.

I was humbled — and inspired — when I saw this video of Hector Picard’s transitions at the Ironman 70.3 California race earlier this year.

Competitors from the Challenged Athletes Foundation participate in Wildflower each year and it is always so impressive to see what accomplished athletes they are, despite their physical disabilities. It is an honor to race among these individuals!
