TRI Harder

Race season is underway! Saturday had the Watsons in Lehi for a little splash and dash. Tim worked hard and improved dramatically since last year. Lucky thing for him Shauna wasn't competing. :) The swim went by fast, he took a few wrong turns on the bike, but made up for it with a pretty quick run. Racing triathlon is awesome because not only is it good exercise, but with warm up clothes that advertise Tim's business (http://www.YourUtahLender.com/) it is also a tax deduction. Good Deal! You ask well. . . . How fast was he? Tim likes to say, "Faster than yesterday but not as fast as tomorrow". The clock, however, said an hour and change. Placing him in the top ten in over 400 participants. How far was today's race? Well at the end of the event all Tim could say was..."TOO FAR!" . Everyone else said 400 meter swim, 13 mile bike and 3 mile run... but Tim was adamant about the correct answer being "TOO FAR!" Our little family started triathlon training a year ago to get out of our comfort zone and to Tri Something new. When was the last time you 'TRI-ed' something new? We'd love to hear about it.
