Given to Tri

About Me

I’m Guillermo Esteves, a Venezuelan-American age-group triathlete based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in the heart of Grand Teton National Park.

Like many, I got into Peloton classes in 2020, with the goal of trying to get in shape during the pandemic, and got seriously hooked on cycling. The following year, I wanted to challenge myself and my newfound fitness, so I set myself the goal of competing in an Ironman 70.3, which I accomplished in August 2022 in Boulder, with an Olympic-distance triathlon and a half marathon along the way. Since then, I’ve gone on to compete in multiple triathlons and running races and I’m currently training for my first full-distance Ironman. With multiple races of various distances scheduled over the coming months, I intend to continue swimming, cycling and running for many years to come, and sharing what I learn along the way on this website.

(An important disclaimer: I’m not a doctor, licensed coach, nutritionist, or hell, even an experienced athlete, and I don’t claim to be an expert at any of this. I simply enjoy sharing what I learn, like many others who have shared their knowledge and helped me along the way. I’ll do my best to back things up with reputable links, sources and citations as much as possible.)

About this site

This website is a simple Jamstack app, which I call Kona. It uses Contentful as a content management system to populate a Middleman static site hosted on Netlify. The logo was designed by Emmelylaura. The name Given to Tri is a play on the name of one of my favorite songs from my all-time favorite band.

In addition to Middleman, Contentful, and Netlify, this website uses Plausible for privacy-friendly traffic analytics, and self-hosted fonts from Google Fonts, specifically Lato, IBM Plex Sans Condensed, and IBM Plex Mono. The icons are from Font Awesome, and the weather data on the home page comes from  Weather. This website doesn’t use cookies or collect personal information of any kind.
