triathletes-receiving-triathlon-awards-by-JeepFleeb.jpg The sport of triathlon is a roller coaster ride of ups and downs. We laugh, we cry, we celebrate, we agonize. We train hard, we race hard, and we push ourselves to our furthest limits, and consider all of this fulfilling!

Robin Williams once said, “You’re only given a little spark of madness. You mustn’t lose it.” Maybe that’s what we are doing as triathletes – giving expression in our own way to that little spark of madness.

So, I decided to close out one year and start a new one on The Fun Times Guide to Triathlons with some special awards.

A Time To Remember…

In 2008, there were triathlon fatalities.

Our hearts go out to all the family members and friends who have had to walk the painful journey of losing someone they deeply loved.

The triathlon fatalities I know of are listed below. I include them as a special triathlon tribute in their honor. If you know of others that you would like to pay tribute to, feel free to use the comment section.
