Le Triathlon du Roi


Yesterday, people were running around and swimming in the Swiss Lake: it was the Triathlon du Roi or King's Triathlon event. I merely watched... For a more general view of the lake, click here. For all posts, including history, click on the label below!

Hier, il y avait du monde à la pièce d'eau des Suisses : s'y tenait le Triathlon du Roi. Moi, j'ai juste regardé... Pour voir la pièce d'eau c'est ici ou en cliquant sur le tag ci-dessous.

Tri-athletes are amazing, aren't they? It's always nice to see there's help on hand for them, though.
I love the shady path by the lake. It would also be nice for strolling quietly!

I am tired just looking at the pictures. I think I will sit here a bit longer, if you don't mind.

Woody said...

I'll admire their hard work and urge them on. Looks like a beautiful spot for a triathlon.

Randy said...

Now that is a place I would love to walk in. It's so green and beautiful.

Olivier said...

je sais pas si les rois faisaient beaucoup de triathlon, ou alors sur une chaise a porteurs ;)

Dina said...

Good for them. I would just be watching too.

Cergie said...

Ah d'accord ! C'est près de cette orangerie vers laquelle je ne suis jamais allée ! Je descends plutôt vers les Trianon.
C'était vert et frais et l'eau sans doute bien chaude, plus qu'en Suisse.

I am with Jack, but it would be nice to seat in the shadow of a tree and watch them!

What a lovely spot for a race of any kind! Lois always wanted to do a triathlon, but for various reasons never did so. She did run two marathons and many half-marathons and numerous other races. Now, she just runs for fun. Can't imagine how people can complete a triathlon!

And yes, the sky was as bad as it looks, but except for a little rain, it passed over us. :-)

Great scenery to endure a triathlon. All those vibrant green trees are beautiful. Plus, I'm sure, the runners appreciated the shade.

I'm also a great observer. Though I do admire their athleticism. Beautiful park.

Virginia said...

What a gorgeous place for a run!

I would be a watcher also...no running for me and definitely no swimming.

EG Wow said...

Hehe. I'd only be watching too...with my camera, just like YOU. :)

Jacob said...

Okay, so what do I know? Me am dumb, dumb, dumb. Did look like wrapped deli meat, though! :-)

Loree said...

I would have been watching too since I am not much of an athlete.

Thérèse said...

Je ne sais pas pour les autres mais lorsque je vais encourager les gens de triathlon et que je vois leur age, le lendemain je suis dehors à courir, lol.
De la chance de pouvoir se mouvoir dans un tel cadre!

Kaori said...

People who do triathlon are crazy. I would definitely be on the sidelines, too :D

I've done a few triathlons, it's hard! But this looks like a lovely spot to do one.

The strong light shows all the beautiful details perfectly :)

It's Spring!!! Yay. Love the vibrant colors, Ciel. I would have to join you on the sidelines... :-)
