Battle at Buckhorn 2011

I enjoy the Battle at Buckhorn sprint triathlon since it is close to home and has a longer swim than usual.  I found myself winning the first year event in 2009, and have gone back to defend the title since then.  I target the race as one of my more important ones for the season just to keep it interesting. 

Fortunately I felt good and was able to defend for the third time, getting away to a good lead on the swim and bike and holding it on the run.

I'll be back next year as well.

It was a really busy weekend.  On Friday I spent the day in Greensboro at the NCHSAA 1A State track and field championship supporting 3 of my high school athletes as they wrapped up their seasons.

On Saturday we did the triathlon in the morning and then ran a Beginner swim clinic in the afternoon.

On Sunday we hosted the 3rd annual 5280 Swim at Falls Lake.  We had our highest turnout yet for this race and I was able to participate myself (unofficially).  Everything went smoothly and the swimmers enjoyed the race.  I spent the rest of Sunday catching up on training plans and still managed a quick visit to the Flying Saucer in downtown Raleigh.

Bri is a trooper, she works all week then slaves around with me all weekend.  Kudos to her for putting up with me.

I would put up pictures but don't have any.
