Highlights 2018

2018 has been a very slow year as far as this blog is concerned.  This is probably one of the years with the least number of postings that I made but fortunately there are still a lot of great things that act as silver lining to an otherwise jaded year.

One of the weekends that I always look forward to each year is when Century Tuna Ironman is held.  It’s one of the few times in the year where world-class triathletes come to the country and show why they are called “elites” in the sport.  It’s also that time of the year where new Ironmen…
