Summer Open Triathlon
And by triathlon, we mean Aquathon
Some last minute changes in road closures and logistics left athletes two choices, a short or a long course swim-run event. Initially this was a pretty big bummer. But, getting to up the swim and run distances was cool. Swim was a 1.5K two-lap with a beach run set-up. The 10K run was also two laps, if you're any good at math you've already figured out that each lap was a 5k. Transition area was pretty lonely looking, with just a pair of shoes, a race number belt and some sunglasses.
I just realized that each local race I've done this year have awarded something 'drinking' as prizes. First, bottles of wine. Now, pitchers and pint glasses#coloradowinssoooooooohard
It was another great day with some of the EK Crew. (Although Elizabeth was dearly missed...stupid Texas!) Strong performances all around. I was 2nd female (first being a professional) Got a sweet pitcher instead of a trophy. Nice to come home with useful hardware! After the race there was lots of food and lounging in the grass. 2 hour ride out to Lyons turned into a speed-limit sign battle extraordinaire. I think the final score was Aubrey 5-Corey 16? Max power hit 704watts & 969 watts! Nothing like a little competition to throw a cruise ride into a cranked up interval session.
Other things life:
Got to garden quite a bit this week. Planting flowers and making pretty things. I haven't had access to a yard in quite some time, it felt really good to play in the dirt!
Yesterday while out and about I saw....
A man dressed as a pirate....
With brown paper bags on this hands....
Shaking his groove thang in the middle of a side street.
I'm not joking. Or exaggerating. #whateverfloatsyourboatpirateman
Words just can't describe how cool my Colorado family is : )
