Memphis in May did something this year and offered a "highlight" video. For a small fee, they had video cameras setup around the course to capture the utter look of exhaustion and the beginning signs of heat stroke on the faces of myself and fellow triathletes as we made our way around the oven called Memphis. I figured it would be beneficial to the paramedics as they tried to piece together the when, where, and whys I was passed out and was unable to speak during the race. If a picture tells 1000 words what is a video worth..... $24.95 is the answer to that question.
Seriously, it wasn't that bad, however, for those of you that don't have much exposure to triathlons or even have seen one, this video might give some insight so if you ever want to try one, you will see, it is not that intimidating.
Couple of things to note:
- I am the guy in Red, White, and Blue with a white helmet, black bike. Hard to miss
- You will see people of all shapes and sizes. You don't have to be Uberfit to do triathlons and that is probalby the number one myth that I had going into the events.
- You can't tell in the video but everyone is so supportive and it truly is a great group of people sharing a common hobby/passion
- Elvis is cool
