So, like I mentioned earlier we are trying to get back our racing form!! The weekend following the Burn 24 David and I completed Abingdon's Iron Nut triathlon. This is the event's second year and it is a race in progress, but still loads of fun. David and I won last year so we felt the pressure to do just the same this year. Well, now that it is officially over I can breathe a sigh of relief that we both won again...with faster times to boot. This was a sprint tri, a 1/2 mile swim, 18 mile bike and a 5k run at the end. My parents and sister came up to help with the kids and cheer us on! Unlike the weekend before, it was CHILLY and I think my toes were frozen when I started the run.
Despite our first place finishes we made some bone head mistakes. David ended up swimming an extra lap, I think this is only fair since he is part fish anyway, and I ended up running the transition area twice because I went out the wrong way! Ha, we both got a good laugh about this after the finish.
