Team Triumph Triathlon Club's Hawaiian Holiday Party!

 

 

TEAM TRIUMPH HAWAIIAN HOLIDAY PARTY!

YEOWZAH!!! What a party!! The evening started with a HUGE surprise for Kevin and Cary and the Team Willis crew who just returned from Hawaii after completing the Ironman and Ultraman. When they arrived they were greeted at the door by Gina, a well loved Triumpher who moved to Victoria and flew back to Ottawa just for the party! We were then treated to blue Mai Tai cocktails mixed up by the Goldsmith crew from Hawaii.

Much to our surprise, The Ultraman Parade arrived! Pauline, Susan, Bryan and Julie dressed up as Team Willis with full wetsuits, biking, running and kayak gear on paraded around the house! After more delicious food, the Hawaiian games or should I say the competitions began! We had the best styled surfers, the Hawaiian relay race, hula hooping and the limbo! Thanks to Kevin for organizing the games.

The McInnes family took 1st place overall for the evening with Jan and Team Aimers-Couet coming a close 2nd and 3rd place. The games got everyone warmed up for some dancing so out came the Disco playlist and we were hopping!! We had a total of 45 Triumphers at the party. Thanks to everyone who came out and joined in to make the party a smashing success!

A special thank you to Martin, my partner and best friend, for keeping everyone's whistles wet and Gina for cleaning up after all of us crazy Triumphers!

Kevin Willis 8th in the World at Ultraman!!

 

KEVIN WILLIS 8TH IN THE WORLD!

With my eyes glued to the computer and iPhone waiting to hear, the news finally came in last night. Kevin had crossed the finish line!!! At that point we still didn't know what place he was in as Ultraman is a 3 day stage race. We waited patiently for the other runners to finish. I had been busy doing "Ultramath" with day 1 and 2 results in hand trying to figure out all possibilities. 

On Day 1, Kevin had a great swim coming out of the water in 13th position. He then went off on the 145km bike ride and started to chase down the other cyclists. The ride involves 6,000 ft of vertical climbs which by the sounds of it was BRUTAL AND HOT!! After Day 1, Kevin ended in 8th spot and posted the 5th fastest bike time!

Day 2 started out in the pouring rain and riders were getting flats. Then the news came in that Kevin's chain had broken! Oh no!!! Luckily they were able to find the mechanic truck and get back on the road but his wife, Cary reported the whole ordeal cost him about 30 minutes. Off on the 276km bike course he chased again and then Kevin got a flat! All of this cost him precious time but he still continued to ride hard and finish Day 2 in 10th place!

Day 3 is a 84km run. We immediately got reports of one guy throwing up and the guy who was in 3rd place walking. All realities of Ultraman. Then the news came in that Kevin was holding 2nd place at the 21km mark! He then ended up catching the top runner and stayed with him for a while. Very exciting news! As the day went on, the heat hit hard and Kevin wasn't able to maintain the scorching pace. He crossed the line with the 7th fastest run time; 7:34 for a double marathon...wowowowowow!!!

The final tally came in and Kevin ranked an amazing 8th in the World in Ultraman!! Not bad for a guy who placed 5th in his age cat at the Ironman in Hawaii a few weeks ago! Congratulations to Kevin and his incredible support crew: Cary Willis, Annemarieke, David and Nicola Goldsmith.

We look forward to welcoming you home this weekend at the
Hawaiian Holiday Party!!
