We had a great, fun, full, triathlon weekend! Our oldest did his third triathlon, his first one in our village. It starts with a 100-m pool swim, 1-mile bike and 400-m run around the track. Truitt took second in his agegroup (8:44) and tied for second overall of all the boys. He wants to race again next year. :-)
Most of my family competed in the local adult triathlon the next morning. It was cooler and wet, but we all crossed the finish line. I had my fastest pool swim (cut 1:43 off my swim) saving eight minutes from the previous year's time 1:32:36 (slightly different course this year).
It was my sister Sue's first race since being diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. She finished cutting over 10 minutes off her last sprint distance tri time. And our friend Ally and her friend Ozzie became triathletes -- great first race experiences. My husband, brother-in-law and younger sister ran a relay, team Viper Dogs, taking second in relays. With so many of us out on the course, we have few pictures, but, I believe we're all in for next year's race.
