Half Full Tri - October 2013

It's been a long time since I did a race just for fun. I've decided that should happen more often, as it results in images like the above. After an ankle surgery and a gnarly bike crash this summer, I was just happy to be back on my feet. Heck, I was even prepared to walk the run if need be to protect those still-healing bone bruises. The Half Full was the perfect venue for this, as it's really about something bigger than swimming, biking, and running. It was a great day, and truly inspiring to see all of Team Fight out there kicking butt! A nice clockwise lake swim, a bike course with lots of rolling hills (and sheep! cows!), and a decently hilly run course finishing in Centennial Park.

Seeing as they were only a short distance away, my parents came and spectated. This was their first tri. So, I got to hear things like:

Dad, at the swim start: "You look like a baby seal!"
Mom, as I transition to bike: "Why aren't you wearing socks? WHY IS NO ONE WEARING SOCKS?"

Still finalizing next year's race schedule, but would definitely come back to this one. Thanks Half Full!
