On the day before flying out of Bali we decided to participate in the Bali International Triathlon and 5K. Amanda signed up for the 5K run and I registered for the Sprint Triathlon.
I had reserved a tri-bike for the race but the reservation got lost in translation. We arrived to the event with no bike and were saved by Yanti, a lovely Indonesian women who kindly loaned me her folding bike.
While I was out on the course Amanda ran the 5K in her usual blistering speed and was the second woman overall.
On the bike leg I was passed by a fit guy with the number 69 scrawled in permanent marker on his left calf. I yelled, “I’m giving it everything I got and I’m getting passed by a #&$%@#$ 69 year old”. The guy immediately sped up and left me in the dust. Later I caught him on the run and we crossed the finish line together.
