This morning was the triathlon Jenifer and I drove from Miami to Huntsville to watch our friend Vicky compete in. I still cannot believe over 800 competitors arrived by 6:30am for a 7:30 start to the sprint length triathlon. The sprint consisted of 600 meters of swimming, 16 miles of bike riding and 3 miles of running. These athletes did more exercise before 9 am then most Americans do in a month.
I won’t pretend to know anything about any of the nationally ranked triathletes. I had no idea there were any such athletes let alone that some of the top ranked would be present this morning. However, it was easy to tell who they were and they did make for some of our best shots of the day. Our friend Vicky is not nationally ranked, but she did complete the course in a personal best time of 4 minutes less than last year!
More to come….
