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

Ironman pro Rebekah Keat (@rebekahkeat) is back in the Twitterverse: finally got my twitter up and running again….persistence from TeamTBB!!

Two-time Olympic medalist Bevan Docherty (@bevanjdocherty) is preparing for his first Olympic-distance race of the season at the Miami International Triathlon: Off 2 Miami 4 1st Oly race of the season. Didn’t enjoy the 4am wake up! Time 2 sleep on the flight.

Olympic hopeful Kevin Collington (@KevinCollington) is dealing with a food situation: Both parents sick with flu-like symptoms. I guess the main house is off-limits…but now whose fridge can I raid when I run out of food??

Kona podium finisher Julie Dibens (@juliedibens) is lamenting the Ironman decision-making process: not sure how many times I can change my mind as to which ironman I will do. #notlovingthenewrulessomuch

ITU speedster Annabel Luxford (@AnnabelLuxford) had some fun with her passport: They didn’t appreciate it when I asked for a passport photo wearing my pirate eye patch.

Reigning Ironman world champ Mirinda Carfrae (@Mirindacarfrae) had some difficulty finding a pool: 13hr flight, Arrive hotel, room not ready, taxi to SM pool for swim, pool closed. MEDIUM… Taxi back to hotel I guess!

But she eventually found it: Success! Got my swim done … Closed pool will not stop me 😉
