Beijing up to this point

I haven’t had a lot of triathlon related news up to this point so that is why I have not posted.  Below are a few pictures from the first few days.  It was really cool to see where the road cycling race took place as we traveled today up towards the Great Wall.  Tomorrow we get to see track and field, with the men’s 100m heats, women’s heptathlon, and women’s 800m heats.  The pollution to me does not feel suffocating but I have not been running outside.  It is just more noticeable when you look up at the skyline rather than the in your face black smoke that I see in Latin America.  I made a great find today with a triathlon pin, since triathlon is barely known and when I ask locals about it by showing them the sport symbol they kind of shrug and show me the cycling gear.  I will probably scout out the Triathlon venue on Sunday afternoon if I have time.
