And, the Army does more than whom before 6:00 am? OK. They would have been out the door at 2:05. But, a man's gotta eat. I got to see a significant number of Vulcan Triathletes including Sophia Lal and Travis Self. I am horrible with names, so I won't list many. And, of course, my buddy John Hanna was there participating with a relay team. He does a great job leading us E3Tri athletes.
I feel much better about these results as compared to Lake Guntersville Olympic from 2 weeks ago. I pushed the ride and the run. And, felt good at the end.
I met Stephanie Farrington's mom who did her first triathlon today. Mom and daughter both got on the podium. I walked by a couple in their 50's at the last race and he was ecstatic about having just completed his first triathlon. I have to say, I just get a kick at of seeing people near my age taking on life very much like children on a playground. Get together, jump in the water, swim; jump on the bike, ride; and grab the shoes and run. Makes for a fun day.
