Inside Triathlon editor-in-chief Courtney Baird breaks down what happened in the triathlon twitter world this week. Click here to view past editions of Twitter Roundup.

Ironman 70.3 San Juan winner Tim O’Donnell (@TOinTRI) wondered where his victory parade was: When I left San Juan hotel the doorman asked, “will there be a parade for u when u get home?” Sadly Javier my friend, I’m back & NO parade!

Ironman world champ Mirinda Carfrae (@Mirindacarfrae) had a celebrity sighting: On a random note – I saw Larry king live… live as in – in the flesh. He sat across from me in KTLA green room.

Ironman pro Luke McKenzie (@lukemckenzie) reconsidered a parking decision: Mum & dad are having no luck on the 1st few days of their US road trip. Trapped by a blizzard today! My bad for leaving our van in Oregon

Ironman pro Samantha McGlone (@samanthamcglone) had some fun at a hotel: Pretty sure this hotel room has at one point been a meth lab. #damnyouhotwire

Abu Dhabi International Triathlon winner Julie Dibens (@juliedibens) became a morning person again: is back on the early train. Love it when it’s warm enough to head out at the butt crack for a ride.

ITU speedster Will Clarke (@Theclarke) worked on his strategy for beating reigning ITU world champion Javier Gomez: Lunch out with the wife…No wedges for me today though. Gotta starve myself a little bit. Not going to beat Gomez weighing 73kg!

Olympic hopeful Hayley Peirsol (@hayhaypeirsol) made a curious musical choice: Slightly ashamed to admit that I dig the new Hansen song @carostilwell #theoldestbrotherneedstomoveon
