2017 ITU Age Group World Championships - Rotterdam (6 of 9)

Had another fantastic day. Watched some of the para triathlon, wandered through the expo and the neighbourhood, checked out a cool food hall, and went on a boat tour with some of my teammates. Our athlete welcome package included a three day metro pass and a free ticket for the boat tour. Decided to food truck it for dinner… another "best I've ever had": pulled pork, omg. Not greasy, super tasty, on a perfect bun with lettuce, pickles and (key ingredient) coleslaw on the sandwich. Might have to have another one for lunch tomorrow. 😋 We actually had a little sun today, but I still wore two jackets and my toque for most of it. Fun fact - Siri voice to text can absolutely not get the word 'toque'.

Fancy bikes a plenty in the expo area. Crowds of people at the World Triathlon gear store.

Brought to you by team Ireland. This fellow's elderly dad took his extremely expensive bike for a spin.

You never get tired of looking at the architecture in Rotterdam. All of it looks like it was done with care and purpose. — at Spido Rotterdam.


A view of the SS Rotterdam from the water. It has been such a wonderful place to stay, I highly recommend it! — at SS Rotterdam.


So lucky to spend the best part of the day out on the water





The bike mechanic was a busy guy today — at Westerkade Rotterdam.


Home of the best pulled pork ever. As the sign says, "Sweet baby Jesus, it's good!"


Prepping my wetsuit, helmet, and race bib nice and early so I don't have to think about it once the nerves start kicking in — at ss Rotterdam.
