Its the crack of dawn on a Sunday. Youre wide awake, and you feel like doing something crazy. You need to channel that energy into a healthy diversion. Head over to Margaret Pace Park for the Publix Escape to Miami Triathlon.
At 6:00 a.m., a boat will take you and a thousand other tri-athletes to Escape Island, where you will dive into Biscayne Bay. After you swim back to the mainland, climb out of the water, and quickly dry off, youll get on a bicycle and start pedaling through midtown. The Rocky theme song is now an auditory hallucination blaring in your head. Ride over the Julia Tuttle Causeway and through beautiful Miami Beach. The crowd cheers as you jump off the bike, drink a cup of water, and begin running across the MacArthur Causeway toward the finish line. You can do it! If this sounds crazy (in a good way), sign up by Friday, September 21. Pick up your packet at the race site Saturday, September 22, and youll be ready for this three-part challenge today. Race fees cost $125 for individuals. Call 305-278-8668, or visit www.escapetomiamitriathlon.com.
