Coveskipper 2014: Not your average day at the beach

By Katie Hosch

My alarm went off at 7am on a Saturday. I sat up slightly confused since usually Saturdays are my “sleep-in” days. Then I realized: It’s the morning of Coveskipper! (an aquathlon at La Jolla Shores). Although the race didn’t actually start until 10:30, UCSD triathlon team members were assigned to certain jobs and were expected to arrive at 8 am sharp. I walked onto the beach searching for the timing team, since that is what I signed up for. I was instructed to set up the mats, then roll them up, then set them out again, then roll them up, and set them out one last time. Quite the process, huh?

Welcome to the 2014-2015 Season

Hi there!

My name is Dan Gonzalez and I am the president of the UC San Diego Triathlon Team for the 2014-2015 season. I'm very excited about the upcoming season. Each year is filled with excitement and I can't wait to see what kinds of adventures will come our way! Our team is comprised of both undergraduate and graduate students of all levels of ability. No previous experience is required!


Here are some important dates coming up:

Several of our team members will be at our table on Library Walk. If you have any interest in our team you should definitely stop by and check it out.

Thursday, October 9th

Oh! And if you want to join make sure you fill out your SCOMS! (They're medical forms to make sure you stay safe) https://scoms.ucsd.edu/


I know triathlons might seem a little scary at first, but I guarantee that with the support of this team, they can be conquered. We all have a triathlete inside of us, and UC San Diego Triathlon is the best place to find it!

Take care, and have fun!

Wildflower 2014 Long Course

Redemption by Bryce Zaffarano

Last year at this time I was explaining to those who asked that two bags of saline (an intravenous solution given to combat dehydration) was not that big of a deal. And the fact that I was given smelling salts between the bags was also a relatively minor, even routine, occurrence after half ironman distance races.
