The triathlon training blog of Phil Barnes

Quote of the month

Devashish Paul, an Ottawa triathlon legend, just completed IM Hawaii, for the first time. We've never met, but he's a regular insightful contributor to TriRudy.com (my regular start-the-day-can't-miss-email-read).

Dev has finished 14 Ironman races. He qualified for Kona this year on a roll-down.

I thought this was a pretty cool thing for him to say:

"Kona was a great trip. I'd like to go back again some time in the distant future if I am fortunate to qualify again, but not for many years. If I do qualify, I'd rather roll down my slot so someone can experience this once in a lifetime opportunity, just as I did.
