Team "Goo Goo Dolls" Takes 5th Overall At The 2009 Malibu Celebrity Triathlon
The last time I was able to race with Mike Malinin of the Goo Goo Dolls was back in 2000. Once again we got the band together (sorry for the pun) and we raced this past Sunday in Malibu celebrity relay triathlon.
Team "Goo Goo Dolls" Ken Dawson (swimmer), Mike Malinin (runner) and Tom Hodge (cyclist).
Jeremy Piven's team placed a soild 3rd overall in the mixed celebrity relay division.
The formula for their "classic" (sprint distance) race makes it an annual sold-out event. It includes a clean ocean swim, beautiful oceanside bike ride, flat out-and-back run, and the largest celebrity category of any sporting event. Prior celebrity participants, including Robin Williams, Felicity Huffman, Wiliam H Macy, David Duchovny, Jon Cryer, Jennifer Lopez, and Matthew McConaughey, to name a fraction of notable Malibu triathletes, make this event a spectator sport.
