Last weekend was my token sprint for 2011… and I might not have done one at all… but… Judi won an entry and I tagged along.
Since it was “just a sprint” we decided to make things a bit more interesting and have our kids drop us off at the race in Fernandina Beach ~40 miles away so that we could bike home…
Swim (9:04) - I must be improving because I swam with the guys in my wave the whole time

For those that know me well…. The mere fact that I’m signing up for a swimming race is I’m sure amusing…
But… with a 2.4 mi swim coming up at GFT… Our tri club’s annual open water swimming race should be good practice…. Especially followed up by a 4 hour ride.
