Last week I raced in Miami for the second time. Last year I was up against some heavy hitters, Chris Lieto and Macca, and I ended up earning a second place. This year I brought my own big guns and won. I wish the two Chrisâ€™s were back this year, â€˜cause I would have certainly given them a better run than a year ago.
The race was pretty straight forward. I swam hard and got a nice lead, which I extended enough over the 18 mile bike course that I was able to cruise the out and back run course and enjoy myself while cheering on the celebrities and athletes with disabilities, whoâ€™s waves were starting the run as I headed for the finish line. It was a really fun race, and a nice contrast from the World Cup the week before.
K-Swiss was at the race too, which meant I got to hang out with the most awesome sports marketing group in the sport. They sold 80 pair of shoes in four hours at the race expo! (Itâ€™s because everyone that tries on a pair of Keahous falls in love with them. Plus they look cool.)
