Summer Updates

Nothing exciting other than MY RELAY TEAM PLACED 2ND AT THE 5430 Long Course Triathlon!!!! Woo hoo!

I did the swim for my wife's relay team at the Boulder Peak Triathlon in mid/late July and had the fastest relay swim time. Building on that and some major last minute drama in getting a team together I was able to field a team for the last 5430 Long Course triathlon (5430 Sports was sold to the Ironman Corporation). And when I say last minute, I mean I was dropping a check and the racing forms off at Jodee and Barry's house on the Friday night before the race - packet pickup was Saturday morning and the race Sunday.

Out of over 50 teams, I had the 6th fastest relay swim time. Kevin, our biker, had a fantastic ride, and Morgan ran a great half-marathon. We lost to the 1st place co-ed team by over 10 minutes, but their biker was Neal Henderson from the BCSM and their runner was Jimmy Archer, a pro triathlete. So, I think that's very respectable.

I'm not running now to try and let my foot heal a bit but I've been biking 2-3 times/week and swimming 2-3 times/week. I can tell I'm not nearly as fit as I used to be and I'm really antsy for some structure, but it's good to have some down time and it's good practice for me.
