6th Annual Louie Triathlon
Today was the 6th Annual Louie Tri, it used to be known as the Iron Team Olympic distance Practice Triathlon, however 6 years ago a few days before the event, Louie Bonupa passed away after losing his battle with Luekemia. Now is held every year in his memory.
I had a very early started to the day, I carpooled up to Treasure Island with Trista and Sandy arriving just around 6:30am. The weather was actually very good, though cold it was clear and sunny. I had been dreading the swim, having already done the Tri California's Treasure Island Triathlon, back in November i was not looking forward to going back into that water. As it happens the water was deemed to be too cold at a very chilly 48F, not wanting have people end-up with hypothermia the swim was cancelled, though this was a great disappointed to us all, we made the best of it. The swim was replaced by an extra 3 mile run.
