5280 swim

The 5280 Swim went very well. I would post a bunch of pictures here but we (I) lost our camera. We had 59 people do the swim with several first timers and a handful of superstars in the field.

Kevin Gerlihy won the overall in 19:38 and Kim Rice was first female in 20:45. I was on a surfboard to lead the swimmers to the first buoy about 700 yards down the lake. Kevin was swimming fast enough that he caught me and I had to jump off so he could pass. Either I need to train more or that dude is fast!

TAC-OSB Masters represented well with a 2nd overall male and 2nd, 3rd and 4th overall females.

The t-shirts turned out great as did the awards.

The next swim in the series is the Jordan Lake Open Water Challenge on June 13.

Last week's trigeek training numbers:
swim 6,000 (2 hours)
bike 130 miles (7 hours)
run 25 miles (4 hours)
kung fu 1 hour
total: 14 hours

This weekend I'll be racing the Triangle Orthopedic Sprint Triathlon on Centennial Campus. I took 2nd last year and hope to improve on that. Last year's winner is out with an injury so I am watching out for the young guns.
