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.
