    there's a triathalon coming up that i thought might be fun.

    it's called the Beach Bum Classic and it's done during the East Coast Surfing Championships.

    basically -
    1 mile run soft sand beach run
    3 mile beach cruiser bike ride
    1/2 mile longboard paddle (10ft max board length)

    I probably have a better chance winning the bikini contest than winning this but it would be fun to enter, just to see how hard it is to finish it.

    then maybe next year i could actually train for it.

    it's coming up august 30th :noes:

    yea that one's easy, i guess thats why they call it "beach bum classic". there's another "traditional" triathalon coming up on sept 20th.

    maybe i'll try the 1 mile beach run by myself and if my heart doesnt explode, i'll sign up for the beach bum classic.

    Most of you don't realize how much harder a soft-sand run is compared to a hard-packed sand run compared to just on pavement. And with the lack of cardio a lot of people do on this board, I'd be surprised if many could actually run it without stopping.

    I'd like to compete in a Sprint-Triathlon next year. I am not in good enough shape at the moment for the one in Sept, so I am hoping for this spring or next fall :)

    I believe its a 3 mile run, 15 mile bike ride, and 1/2 mile swim.

    Then there's a stageII version or something once you complete that which is a 5 mile run, 26 mile bike ride, and 1 mile swim.

    Currently, the swimming is what would utterly destroy me :hs:

    I would like to be :dunno: I know I could not do one now, each section alone would be a challenge for me, but by next year I hope I could maybe do a half if not full

    Sounds awesome. I'm currently starting week 2 of my 4 week sprint tri prep :o 215lbs + full suspension mt bike FTW!

    1 mile in sand is like sprinting 3-5k in my mind.

    Bike ride through the sand too? That'd be a bitch and a half.

    :rofl:

    I take it back if the bike ride and longboard paddle segments are on sand. It'll probably be pretty brutal then.

    I almost did one my freshman year of college since I ran XC in highschool and was looking for something to do. However it turns out I can't swim. :rofl:

    Totally fixed my shit. If you search around the Internets you can find most of the videos online.
