This weekend was an exciting one. My sister and family came up because I finally convinced Brent (Brother In-law) to do the Naperville Triathlon with me.
Saturday Brent and I picked up our packets and then the whole crew went to Carter’s school for their version of “The Last Fling”. It seems kind of crazy that we are already nearing the end of the summer, but I guess it had to come at sometime. This specific celebration was geared to the younger kids. There was a bunch of little games spread out across the parking lot and a large jumpy house in the corner. Food, popcorn and flavored ice topped off the morning of activities.
The big event for the weekend was the Triathlon Sunday morning. This was my 3rd one and Brent’s 1st one. As Julie and I talked Brent through all of the details of the race, we were constantly reminded of our first Triathlon 4 years ago. Julie and I were nervous for that first one, going through all the motions of the transitions and double, triple, quadruple checking all of our gear. Brent was super nervous too and went through all the same steps of anxiety. The nerves continued all the way up to the start of the race.
At the end of it all, Brent and I completed the race. We both had a good race and happy to now have it behind us. Sore muscles welcomed us the next day. 🙂
I wanted to get a better time than my last race, but I ended up doing 2 min worse. Here are my results:
Overall Place: 270
Age Group: M 30-34
Group Place: 44
Transition 1: 2:57
Transition 2: 2:02
Total Time: 01:18:47
