  • I'm on Chio's team, but I can't remember what the name was that we gave ourselves. I'm planning to do the BIKE leg.

    I'm an Aussie living in Seattle. My weapon of choice is my steel framed Surly Steamroller, running a fixed gear on a 47/19 ratio. You can usually find me out riding, whether it's on my motorcycle or on my bicycle. My favorite animal is a Dog, and I had a meat pie for dinner last night :)

  • So yes, Kris and I are on the same team. ACK Attack, remember? You're the one came up with it! I'll let our runner chime in when he recovers from his travels :)

    My weapon of choice will be the Arena X-Glide... just kidding! I'll be wearing a practice suit -- probably http://www.swimoutlet.com/product_p/13598.htm -- with cap, goggles and Kory, my fearless waterproof iPod shuffle.

    I ♥ brunch buffets, cupcakes and farmers markets. Grover and Cookie Monster are my favorite Sesame Street characters. I wanna learn how to play the steeldrums. But, for now, a malasadas will do :)

    I've changed the rules a bit. Instead of having one team member be from a different country, y'all can be from the same country now!

    Silly Chio, but cool thanks a bunch! That really makes this easier. =)

    Any team that sticks to the original rules should get bonus points. Like a 5:00 headstart :)

  • Ok, we got a team together! Woo hoo!
    Meet Sam (our cyclist), Ryan (our swimmer), and I will be running.
    We don't have a name yet, but we're bound to put our heads together! =)

  • A little intro about me...since Chio and Kris did it...hehe.

    I lived in Long Beach, CA until I moved to NY about a decade ago. I'll be running with my Asics GT2140, "Switzer" (Red Garmin 305), & Nike+ Sportband. In addition - my running shorts, tech tee, and any other running clothing essential. I wouldn't want to run bare...lol.

  • Aki
    Aki Sendmail

    Hi, my name is Aki and I'm a rehabilitating eataholic... is this the right group?
    I am part of the awesome ACK Attack Team! You know how there is usually a weedy character in any superhero team, someone with rubbish powers who you think "wow, wouldn't it suck to be that guy - he's like, ordinary", well that's my part in our outstanding triangle of athleticism! I shall be known as "the runner".

    My weapon of choice are my fatigued Sauconys of some 3rd world, sweatshop calibre. I will be sporting a mankini, or perhaps some running shorts and tech T to avoid arrest. Err, I like most sports but I am pretty rubbish but would get an A for effort! I don't play steel drums, I eat cookies, I'm allergic to sesames, I like dogs but don't like it when they try to lick your face, I like mi food and will happily scoff anything :) TMI?

  • Hi All,

    Before I forget, I'd like to introduce my team-nameless as of yet (maybe we'll be the nameless trio?) I'm gonna be the runner (Boston), Chris will be the cyclist (Phillipines) and Devin will be the swimmer (Texas). Looking forward to another fun virtual challenge!

  • Still need a swimmer Joyce?

  • Well I'm in as a virtual swimmer, which is kind of funny because swimming is my weakest event. I don't mind though. It'll be good practice for me. Now I need to find a time to swim "only" 1500m in a shot.

  • Hi All!
    I'm Chris from the Philippines. From the "Nameless Trio" I'll be doing the cycling part of the challenge. Weapon of choice is a racer bike circa 1980s. I love competition and that is my main motivation.

    You could always make a guest appearance at a masters meet :)

    Eric, we got a swimmer but I think Israel, Jeff, & Michelle need one. I'm not sure who's on their teams. Feel free to hit them up. =)
