Happy Holidays

Alas the season of events has come to a close but we have a lot to look forward to, my favorite time of the year. Actually I think any time of the year is my favorite but, Christmas is awesome. Time for family, fun, food, pies, cookies, egg nog, candy, gravy and all the good stuff that goes with it. The weather is getting colder so it is a little harder to get motivated to exercise outside. I can already feel my body slowing down. How do we stay motivated during his time of year? Probably the hardest time of year to get in shape. Did I mention all the pie? I hope this Christmas we can remember who we have to thank for everything good in our lives, our families, friends, faith, and the opportunity to overcome our mistakes. What gift can we give to others to brighten their lives?

Lake Mead Triathlon



It was a cold start, cold for Las Vegas anyway, the water gave me the chills until the swim started, then all I could think about was getting out. Not sure why but I really struggled with the swim this time, might be because the course was setup differently than any other. The buoys were set so far apart that it was nearly impossible to see where to swim to with foggy goggles.




Several large boats passed near the course, their wake sent us rolling off course several times.



After the swim, I noticed that the clouds had started clearing up a little, time for a nice bike ride, easy compared to the PumpkinMan last month.






Though the swim was pretty hard, I finished with my best run time yet. Not too bad for the inaugural year of this race. It was well organized and supported, except for the swim. Definitely going for it again next year, the finishing medals were pretty awesome too.





The end.
