In our house we have 5 seasons: spring, summer, fall, winter and triathlon! Triathlon season starts during the spring, continues during the summer, ends during the fall, so not only is it the longest of the 5 but it has the biggest impact on our daily lives. This past weekend marked the end of Triathlon season for us. We competed in our second Olympic distance Tri in Pinehurst, NC. It was a wetsuit legal race with the water at 71 degrees, which was nice and warm since the air was 52 at the start! With 650 participants it was a somewhat large event and extremely competitive as people were looking to finish the season with points, PR's and standings.
We all had a great time and were able to smile at the finish line, so it was a successful day! Now we get to take a little time off, rest and recover, and figure out our plans for marathon season. Oh wait, marathon season, that makes a 6th season! Yikes!
