Richard and I survived my first open water sprint triathlon. Richard has done plenty, but a first for me. It was hard swimming that far without any wall hang time. I swear sometimes I think I am Kilroy when I hang on the wall. Made it and did meet that goal. Not sure if I want to do the Toyota Sprint tri with the 800m open water swim. I was really tired after 500. The lake was so low, we have the worst drought in years. The last 25m the water was so shallow that my hand hit the bottom of the lake. So I figured I should just walk it in. Richard had a bike wreak that gave him so road rash and bent folks on the bike. He was able to bend them back and finish the race. But the bike is replaced. He has had it 25 years, so I think he could use another. So two weeks from now we are doing the Hotter that Hell 100 in Wichita Falls, Texas. Should be fun is the middle of this heat wave. We got lucky with the tri. Rained the night before and and the sun didn't come out until we were done. Photos on my spark page.
