Destination: Israman. Eilat, Israel
Started off the year with a trip to Eilat, Israel. We raced a very hard triathlon along with fellow triathletes Jenny Fletcher and Ben Collins. Before and after the race we explored around the area and sampled lots of local food. Eilat is located 4 hours south of Jerusalem on the Red Sea. We drove through the Negev Desert to get there and then spent 6 nights in Eilat. The trip and race were EPIC. Really, there is no other way to describe riding up a mountain, biking in very cold and windy temps and then running a marathon back down to the town. Here are some photos that show a bit of our experience in Eilat. Icing on the cake? We finished 1st and 2nd!
