2nd TRI...

I did it again back in September I ran my second Triathalon (sprint) and had a blast! First off I set a faster time than my previous year...which makes me happy! I realize I do not have the time to give to it that the big boys do so my goal is first to complete then to beat my time!

So here is the break down:
141 #293 Fred Shirley 39 St. Michael, MN
Swim – 177/ 22:14 100yd - 2:32
Turn 1. 4:08
Bike – 131/ 57:24 Rate - 18.8
Turn 2. 1:34
Run – 119/ 45:16 Pace - 9:04
Finish - 2:10:35

Last year was...
00:26:50 - swim 1/2 mile
00:04:00 - turn 1
00:58:06 - bike - 18.6 rate / 18 mile
00:02:32 - turn 2
00:50:22 - run - 10:05 pace / 5 mile
02:21:50 - total time

So in short last year took...2 hours 21 minutes 50 seconds...this year was 2 hours 10 minutes 35 seconds.

To end it all I ran it 11 minutes and 15 seconds faster than last year...woohoo! That was the goal and I thank God I made it!

I think that I am more thankful for my family and them supporting as well as putting up with all the training...cause let's be honest working out it just no fun, but setting goals and pushing toward them is!

I have the best wife, daughter, and boys ever...thank you God!

Blessed...is the best!

So today I got to take Brew hunting...he is an amazing dog (just had to say that)...at any rate it was fun to hunt over a good dog again. It's been a few years since the last time I was able to go hunting since I had to put my other dog down.

I am very thankful for all that God has blessed me with and today is just one of them days.
