Triathlon Across the USA: State #13 – Hawaii

Kailua (Honolulu), Hawaii, April 21, 2013 – BOCA Hawaii Lanikai Sprint Triathlon

The Hawaii triathlon was the perfect opportunity to visit family on the tropical island of Oahu.  It also led to several firsts in the “Triathlon Across the USA” adventure.

 

Planning the Hawaii Triathlon

Joy and I are fortunate to have a close connection with my aunt Nelda, who just happens to live 10 minutes by walking from Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii.

For the past several years, we have visited her during the heart of the Minnesota winter.  In turn, we welcome her to our home, during the summer, of course.

Planning an April trip to Hawaii for the BOCA Hawaii triathlon seemed almost a waste.   After all, why make the long flight to visit Hawaii at a time when the weather in Minnesota is typically spring-like.  April in Minnesota generally means spring flowers in bloom and trees that are beginning to bud and turn green after the winter.

As it turned out, the 2013 winter in Minnesota was longer than usual.  It snowed on and off at home throughout our time in Hawaii.

 

Before the Race

Joy and I – and my Trek SpeedConcept 7.5 triathlon bike – arrived in Hawaii a little over a week before the triathlon.

After re-assembling the bike, I took a short ride to make sure that I had put it together properly.  While I had planned to take time before race day to get in some serious biking, this didn’t happen as planned.  Why?

Biking in Honolulu was a challenge, given the traffic and so few designated bike lanes on the city streets and roads.   By January 2018, this condition had improved due to the more than 1,000 rental bicycles that are part of the can you buy Depakote in canada program involving more than 100 rental locations throughout the main tourist areas of Honolulu.

 

12th Annual BOCA Hawaii Lanikai Triathlon

The BOCA Hawaii Lanikai Triathlon, managed by the multi-sport training and racing company buy Depakote canada online, took place in Kailua Beach Park on the eastern side of the island of Oahu.

Distances for the individual legs of the buy Depakote race were:

  • Swim: 0.3 mile (550 yd or 500 m)
  • Bike: 10.7 mile (17.1 km)
  • Run: 3.6 mile (5.7 km)

This race had the distinction of having part of the bike course on Marine Corps Base Hawaii (MCBH).  For reference, MCBH was formerly known as Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay and originally called Naval Air Station Kaneohe Bay. (Source: buy Depakote australia)

 

Swim

All 350+ competitors ran or walked into Kailua Bay together with the sounding of the air horn that signaled the start of the triathlon.  The 500 meter (550 yard) swim in the calm, clear, and comfortably warm waters of Kailua Bay took me a little over 11 minutes.  Given the water temperature, wetsuits were not allowed.

buy Depakote online australia

The open water swim in Kailua Bay (with Mokulua Island in the background) was my first triathlon involving a swim in the Pacific Ocean. The darker section of the water near the center of the picture (between kayaks) is created by the swimmers.

Bike

The bike leg took us from the transition area in Kailua Beach Park onto city streets parallel to the Bay.  We eventually entered MCBH.  The course was flat except for one nasty hill that ended with a turnaround in a neighborhood of base housing.

To put things in perspective, the hill leading to the turnaround was the kind that causes you to wonder if you are going to fall over from going so slowly even though you are in the lowest possible gear and giving it your all.

We all know that whatever goes up must come down.  This day, coming down meant extreme attention (and braking) to avoid ending up in Kailua Bay while navigating the near right angle turns near the base of the hill.

The bike turnaround occurred on Marine Corps Base Hawaii (upper section of the picture). For reference, the swim took place in Kailua Bay (between land and small island) near the center of the picture. The run took place in the Lanikai neighborhood in the lower section of the picture. This view is from Pillbox hiking trail.

 

This was the first race applying a strategy on the bike to shift gears in order to comfortably maintain a cadence (pedal revolution) of 90 rpm.  The one exception was on the aforementioned hill.

This approach seemed to work as I had hoped.  While I was not always biking as fast as I could have, the higher cadence saved my legs for run.

 

Transition

Transition occurs between the individual legs of a triathlon and typically involves a change of gear and shoes.  The time to complete the two transitions (from swim to bike, called T1, and from bike to run, called T2) is included in the overall time for completing the triathlon.

Time spent in transition is just as important as time spent in each of the legs – see “can you buy Depakote over the counter in canada”.

The video clip illustrates one way to minimize time spent in transition, that is, through multitasking.

VIDEO: Connecting the race number belt while running out of the transition area is one way to minimize transition time.

 

Triathlon Tip: Reduce your transition time by completing certain tasks together.  I typically connect my race number belt while running out of transition.  If the triathlon involves a wetsuit, I wear the race number under the wetsuit from the beginning of the race.

 

Run

The main part of the 3.6 mile run course was on the hilly streets of the Lanikai neighborhood.

The run course of the BOCA Hawaii Lanikai Sprint Triathlon took us through the Lanikai neighborhood.  Mokulua and Moko Iki Islands are visible in the background.

Most of the last 0.6 miles was on the beach, on sand that had been packed from waves washing ashore.  However, the last few yards were on deep, soft sand, just what we didn’t need while trying to sprint to the finish line.

 

Results

There was no award for me this time.

I finished 4th of seven in my age group – not even close to the guy who finished third.  While I was ‘in the hunt’ after the swim and bike legs, the three guys in my age group who finished ahead of me were much stronger runners.

 Race First’s

  • First triathlon with part of the race course on a USA military base (Marine Corps Base Hawaii)
  • First triathlon in which the swim occurred in the Pacific Ocean
  • First triathlon outside the continental USA

Triathlon Across the USA: State #18 – South Carolina

Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, October 12, 2013 – On On Tri Hilton Head Triathlon

The Hilton Head Island Sprint Triathlon was the perfect opportunity for Joy and I to check off South Carolina in the Triathlon Across the USA quest, explore Savannah, Georgia and Hilton Head, and celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary.

 

Planning for South Carolina

From the wonderful things she had heard from friends, Joy had been dreaming about visiting Hilton Head Island.  How did I know this?  She told me one evening while we were sitting around talking about plans for the 2013 triathlon season.

Meanwhile, the race management company for the On On Tri Hilton Head Sprint Triathlon, where can i buy Depakote over the counter, had opened registration for the 2013 race almost immediately after the 2012 event.

So, when we learned that the 2013 running of the Hilton Head Triathlon would take place in the week of our 40th wedding anniversary, we looked at each other and said “why not?”.  After all, here was an opportunity to explore a part of the USA we had not previously visited and check off another state in which we had completed a triathlon.

 

Hilton Head via Savannah

Eleven months after registering for the race, Joy and I left Minneapolis for our combined mini vacation and triathlon weekend.  The Thursday, October 10th flight to Savannah, Georgia, with a connection in Atlanta, got us into Savannah at around noon.

After picking up our rental car, we drove to the Savannah Visitors Center.  Here we purchased tickets and boarded the where do i buy Depakote for a narrated trip through historic Savannah.

About three quarter of the way through the tour, we hopped off the trolley for lunch at Paula Deen’s restaurant, Lady & Sons.  The buffet-style lunch included southern staples of grits, fried okra, and peach cobbler, along with other items, like green beans, more commonly found at our Minnesota table.

Joy and I had lunch with Paula Deen, or at least her cutout, at Lady & Sons Restaurant in Savannah, Georgia.

 

After finishing the tour, we headed north out of Savannah toward Hilton Head Island, crossing from Georgia into South Carolina just outside Savannah.  It took about an hour to make the roughly 40 mile trek to our hotel, The Beach House Holiday Inn, at Coligny Beach on Hilton Head Island.

Following a short rest and walk on the beach, we headed over to Steamers for a swordfish dinner.  Before turning in for the night, we took a dip in the hotel’s outdoor hot tub.

 

Renting a Bike

Months earlier, I had decided to rent a bicycle for the race from a bike shop on Hilton Head Island.  Renting would mean that I would not travel with my bike for this race.

First of all, at $50 for a 24-hour rental, it was a lot less expensive than the $300 ($150 each way) that it would have cost to bring my bike as airline luggage.

By the way, I had previously offered Delta Airlines the option of sponsoring me in triathlon by giving me free bike shipment.  Unfortunately, they hadn’t taken me up on what I thought was a reasonable offer.

Secondly, by renting a bike, there was a lot less hassle.  Renting avoided the need for unpacking and re-assembling my bike once at the race venue, then disassembling and re-packing it after the race and before heading back home.

There was also the fact that traveling with the bike case would have required renting a larger vehicle, also at greater cost, than the mid-size sedan that I had reserved.

Clearly, there were good financial reasons for renting a bike locally.  The main concern was getting a bike of the right size and fit that would not cost me too much time during the triathlon.

I am accustomed to riding a triathlon-specific bike (‘tri-bike’) which includes aerobars.  However, there were no bike shops on Hilton Head Island with rentals of this type available.  The closest option that I had for a rental bike was a road bike, without aerobars.

 

Picking Up the Rented Bike

Anyway, after lunch on Friday, Joy dropped me off at Depakote buy from uk to pickup the rental bike, a Trek Madone 3.1.   The bike shop staff exchanged the pedals with mine and adjusted the seat to fit me.  After a quick test ride and another minor adjustment, I headed back to the hotel.

The ride back to the hotel reminded me why I am paranoid about riding on city streets.  While crossing an exit from a parking area, I was almost hit by, of all things, a school bus as it barreled out of the lot.  Had I not hit the brakes hard enough to lift the back wheel off the ground, I would have been struck by the bus.

 

Packet Pickup

Later that afternoon, it was time to pick-up the race packet and T-shirt.  Remembering the close call with the school bus earlier in the afternoon, I decided to walk rather than ride the few blocks to Go Tri Sports.

While crossing a bridge along the walking trail, I glanced down into the water to see something that you don’t find on walks around any of the 10,000+ lakes and ponds in Minnesota – an alligator.

Fortunately, I already knew that the swim was in the gator-free ocean and not in a local lake or pond where these guys spend their time.

On On Tri Hilton Head Triathlon

Distances for the individual legs of the buy Depakote On On Tri Hilton Head Sprint triathlon were:

  • Swim: 0.3 mile (550 yd or 500 m)
  • Bike: 12.4 mile (20 km)
  • Run: 3.1 mile (5 km)

 

Swim

Just before the start of the race, all triathletes made their way from the transition area to Coligny Beach for the final instructions about the swim.

With the pre-race meeting complete, swimmers walked up the beach the 550 yard distance of the swim to the starting line.   Once at the starting line, we waded into the water up to between chest and neck level (depending upon a person’s height).  Here we waited for the signal for the race to begin.

Once the gun went off, we swam parallel to the beach until reaching the end point for the swim.  The waves were small on this day so it was relatively easy to stay on course, that is, swim in a straight line.

Exiting the water, we ran the roughly 100 yards across the beach (on the right side of the volleyball court pictured below), through the Holiday Inn parking lot passing directly below the room where Joy and I were staying, across South Forest Beach Drive, and into the transition area.

how to buy Depakote

The open water swim for the On On Tri Hilton Head Triathlon was held at Coligny Beach, popular for beach volleyball.

 

Bike

After removing my wetsuit, I grabbed the rented bike and jogged it to the line designated for mounting.  Hopping onto the bike, I slipped my feet into the shoes which had been clipped into the pedals prior to the start of the race.

The bike course was three loops of a very, very flat, tree-lined four mile section of local streets.  The course left the transition area which was near the Coligny Circle roundabout, turning right onto South Forest Beach Drive.

At about one mile from the start, South Forest Beach Drive split into North Sea Pines Drive and Cordilla Parkway.  The course followed Cordilla Parkway back to Pope Road where we made a right turn.  Once at the Coligny Circle roundabout, we took the first exit of the roundabout.  This put us back onto South Forest Beach Drive for the second, and eventually, third loops.

The rental bike turned out to be a success.  While I normally ride a triathlon specific Trek SpeedConcept 7.5, the Trek Madone road bike worked well as evidenced by a pace similar to that I would have expected with my tri-bike.

Triathlon Tip: Renting a bike from a local bike shop, especially for shorter distance races, can be a cost effective alternative to shipping your bike to a race.  Tell the person at the bike shop the size bike you normally ride.  Ask the shop if you can bring your pedals in order to use your clip-in shoes.  And, don’t forget to have the shop fit you to the bike, at least as much as they can.

Run

There is not much to report about the run.  By now, the course was quite familiar since the run course was a somewhat shortened, single loop of the bike course.  As they say in triathlon-speak: “flat and fast”.

 

Results

This will probably be recorded as the flattest course ever, at least of the triathlons in which I have competed.  After all, it took place on a small coastal island cut up by numerous waterways and ponds that occupy 40% of the island.

The flat course no doubt helped me to achieve a competitive time and place first in my age group.  We were grateful for a positive end to an otherwise marvelous trip.

 

Race First’s

  • First race with a rented bike.
  • First race in which our hotel room looked out onto the path between the swim exit and transition area. The trip to transition on race morning was about one block.

Triathlon Across the USA: State #14 – New Jersey

Tuckerton, New Jersey, May 5, 2013 – Bassman Sprint Triathlon

Swimming, biking and running in the Garden State (New Jersey) gave an opportunity to test the recent triathlon training plan and visit the Atlantic coast.

 

Planning the New Jersey Triathlon

One goal for the 2013 season was to complete triathlons in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.  With these under our belt, we would check off the northern portion of the Mid-Atlantic states in our quest to visit all 50.

This weekend, it was New Jersey.  Joy and I would travel to Maryland and Pennsylvania about one month later for triathlons in these two states.  This left Delaware, North Carolina, and Virginia, the remaining Mid-Atlantic states, for later.

 

Travel to New Jersey

We left our house in Chicopee, Massachusetts early Saturday morning to make the roughly 250-mile trek to Bass River State Forest just west of Tuckerton, New Jersey.

is it safe to buy Depakote online, the location of the Bassman Triathlon, is about 100 miles south of New York City and about 30 miles north of Atlantic City, New Jersey which sits directly on the Atlantic Coast.

We picked up the race packet at the Bass River State Forest.  While there, we took a short walk to check out Lake Absegami where we would swim the next morning.  We then headed out on the 45-minute drive south to Atlantic City.

 

A Quick Visit to Atlantic City

While neither of us is a fan of casinos nor gambling, we were curious to see the draw that this city had on Pat and T, two of Joy’s friends from our Chicopee neighborhood.  A couple of times each year, these two ladies would drive to Atlantic City for gambling and an overnight stay in Pat’s timeshare.

Atlantic City boardwalk.

 

We drove along the strip lined by a mix of casinos – small and large, simple and opulent.  With the gusty winds and air temperature in the mid-50’s F, not to mention expensive parking, Joy and I took turns walking from a nearby hotel loading dock for a quick look at the famous Atlantic City Boardwalk.

We then headed a couple of miles further up the strip to Brigantine Beach where we stopped for lunch at the buy Depakote mastercard.

About six months earlier, Hurricane Sandy had passed through the area.  While there was still some debris from Sandy, the beach was in good shape.  I can certainly understand the attraction of these sandy beaches, especially in warmer weather.

After a short tour of Brigantine, we headed to our hotel, the Holiday Inn Manahawkin/Long Beach Island, for last-minute preparations for the triathlon and for an early dinner.  Remember my motto: “The early triathlete gets the best spots in transition.”

 

6th Annual Bassman Sprint Triathlon

It was a busy day for the people of buy Depakote mexico who managed the race.

Actually, the Bassman event included three triathlon distances (half Ironman, Olympic, and sprint) as well as half Ironman and Olympic distances of a duathlon (run-bike-run) and aquabike (swim-bike).

Distances for the individual legs of this buy Depakote sprint triathlon were:

  • Swim: 0.35 mile (620 yds or 560 m)
  • Bike: 12.5 miles (20.1 km)
  • Run: 3.1 miles (5 km)
Depakote 500mg buy

The Bassman Triathlon transition area and swim were in the Lake Absegami Day Use Area of the Bass River Forest.

 

Swim

The air temperature on race morning was still in the 50’s F and the temperature of Lake Absegami for the open water swim was reported to be around 65ºF.  With this temperature, the race was considered ‘wetsuit-legal’ meaning the racers were allowed, even encouraged, to wear a wetsuit.

I apparently started out too fast in the swim, which led to a moment of panic as I became light-headed.  The congestion I had been battling during the previous week probably didn’t help.

After slowing my stroke rate, which allowed my heart rate to drop a bit, I was able to resume the swim without any further difficulty.

Triathlon Tip: One reason I now take a short swim just before the start of a race is to get my heart rate up so that when the gun goes off, I can start swimming already partially warmed up.

buy Depakote 500 mg online

The open water swim for the Bassman triathlon was in Lake Absegami.

 

A Slightly Different Approach to Timing

If you are not familiar with the transition part of a triathlon, you can feel free to skip this section.  Or, you can learn about triathlon transition in buy Divalproex 125 mg.

Anyway, back to the race.

It was a short run from the exit of Lake Absegami to the transition area.

For this race, there was only one timing mat for the transition area.  This was in contrast to the two (one at each end of the transition area) that is more common with triathlons.

As a result, the T1 (transition from swim to bike) and T2 (transition from bike to run) times were included in the bike and run times, respectively.

In other words, the swim time officially ended upon crossing the timing mat and entering the transition area.  Bikes exited the opposite end of the transition area where there was no timing mat.

Upon completing the bike leg, athletes entered the transition area where they had previously entered after the swim.    Crossing the timing mat officially ended the bike leg and started the run leg.

 

Bike

The bike portion of the race included a loop out of the park onto local roads.  The loop rejoined the original portion with about two miles back to the transition area.

buy Depakote 250 mg

The bike course for the Bassman Triathlon was a loop on roads outside Bass River State Forest

 

As shown on the map, the view from the bike was mostly forest with the occasional body of water – very pleasant.  The course was relatively flat with the maximum difference in elevation of just over 30 ft (9 m).

The most unique ‘scenery’ came near the end of the course.  We passed two sizeable turkey vultures cleaning up a deer.  The animal had most likely been hit by a car and was now lying on the shoulder of the road.  The vultures seemed unfazed by the many bikers who passed within a few feet of them.

 

Run

The 3.1 mile (5 km) run in the Bass River Forest was on a combination of dirt, hiking trails, and park road.

In no way bragging, I sweat during typical races as much as anyone. With that wonderful word picture in mind, the fact that I did not break a sweat until the very end of the run tells you a lot about the temperature during the race.

In fact, my feet were almost numb during the run.  The good news is that the cool temperatures helped me to achieve the run pace that I had set for races this season.

 

After the Triathlon

Much to my surprise, I was the first finisher age 60 and over (my age group was 60-64).

As a result of the finish, this was the first time that I qualified for the USA Triathlon National Championships.  Finishers in the top 10% of their age group automatically qualify for Nationals.

 

About New Jersey, the ‘Garden State’

When those of us from the Midwestern USA think of New Jersey, we most often picture the sprawling metropolitan areas like Newark from which you can see New York City across the Hudson River.

Driving back to Massachusetts from Bass River Forest, we were reminded of the contrast between the massive green areas found throughout most of New Jersey and the asphalt and concrete dominated areas of the more well known metropolitan areas.

New Jersey is called the ‘Garden State’ for good reason.  Get away from the major cities and you see the importance of fruit and vegetable farming.

 

Race First’s

  • First race in which I finished first in my 60-64 age group and qualified for USAT Nationals
  • First race in which I saw vultures picking at a dead deer lying alongside the road.
  • First race in which I did not break a sweat until the very end of the run.
