That crazy July ... here we are. July 3rd, 2011 - JCC sprint triathlon

So one week after we finished the BTC we had another triathlon.

In the week leading up to the July 3rd triathlon, Carrie started trying to run again. She did actually run 3 miles two nights in a row before the knees started acting up again. We did ride one spin class that week ... but other than that we focused on the run and the swim.

The stats for this triathlon:

1) 500 yd swim
2) 13.4 mile bike
3) 2 mile run

Bryan was 5th in his age group with a time of: 1:05:59 - Note: There were 17 dudes in his age group.

Carrie finished 2nd in her age group with a time of: 1:16:28. She killed it on the bike!

Both of our swim times improved drastically in this event. Bryan is still slow in the water but much much improved!

Sally, Ted and Jeannie came to cheer us on. That was nice of them. Truth be told, I think they wanted to make sure we were actually doing triathlons rather than just talking about them. Kidding.

I talk all the time to my friends about how the bike bails us out in our triathlon pursuits ... so why does the bike come back to bite me in the next triathlon?
