Israman Triathlon 2014 Race Photos

>> Monday, January 20, 2014

I found a Facebook gallery of a few photos from the Israman triathlon. Doron Sery shot these 20 photos, and it shows how awesome the race was. There are some selfies, but they are the most awesome triathlon-related selfies:

On the shores of the Red Sea pre-race.

Swimming with the athletes!

The full iron distance athletes had to do 2 laps in the Sea - she's running up the shore
past the guy in the yellow (and past the banner) to then jump back in for another 1.2 miles.

The woman smiling behind Doron is Noa, the great photographer hired by Kinetis to take photos for us.


Part of the long climb into the mountains early in the bike ride.

T2 was up in the mountains.

The finish line back near the Sea.

They had lots of glow bracelets and other bright things at the finish.

With one of the Alterman brothers - former Israeli champs
(click here to see a pic of them post-race).

Awards ceremony/celebration on the beach the next morning.

That's Hagai Ashlagi in the middle: super nice owner of Shvoong (the company that owns
the Israman Tri). He sat next to me for a bit on our flight from Eilat back to Tel Aviv.

Ashlagi (in that photo above) also KICKED ASS in a relay in the half distance. His team was 3rd overall out of 90 teams. They won their "relay age group" - the relays are divided by age (all 3 members age added up to "119 and less" or "120 and more"). So they were the first "old guys" across the line in a time that was over 150 minutes faster than my "old guys" team!

My NEXT POST will be a lot of race photos and my full race report from my 2K swim in the Red Sea. Stop back soon!
