“Be true to the game, because the game will be true to you. If you try to shortcut the game, then the game will shortcut you. If you put forth the effort, good things will be bestowed upon you. That's truly about the game, and in some ways that's about life too.”
That is a quote from Michael Jordan, one of my idols for being an extraordinary reference in sports, and damn, I think he's right! I greatly admire the athletes. I'm not sure it's because I consider myself a washed up sportsman :-) and when I see that people give their best effort in a competition, I feel that they are heroes for me to achieve something extremely challenging (I think I never ran in my life more than 10 miles! LOL). Or maybe it's just because I love seeing people achieve their goals and when they reach the finish goal I feel very good for them. Can you imagine the effort training a whole year to perform at its best in a few hours of competition? ... Remarkable indeed!
The Iron Man 70.3 Los Cabos (or half triathlon) is a mix between three different disciplines: 1.2 miles swimming, 56 miles biking, and 13.1 miles marathon. This give us the total amount of 70.3 miles, which gives the name to the event.
And there is also another type of Iron Man 140.6, which is the exactly double of miles in any of the three disciplines... OMG, I can not even imagine that kind of effort!
Now I want to share with you some photos I took for the Iron Man 70.3 Los Cabos (November 2018). Not that I am a passionate follower of Iron Man in general, I just enjoy sports, I love photography, and it happens that this exciting competition is celebrated every year in the city where I live ... An extraordinary opportunity to have a very fun shooting day, right?
