CANNUCK YOU!


As I suspected, she had more game than me and won fair and square. (Although a girl looking suspiciously like her gave me the forearm shimmy and kneed me in the groin when the ladies in her wave gapped up to my wave.) A full race report will follow after my court appearance on Tuesday morning. Gotta be prepared for the client and all.
I had a nice comfortable swim for a change and a fun bike. But, suffice it to say that by the time of the run, it would have taken my best stuff to even get close, and I did not have my best stuff on the shelf. (Frankly, I'm not fit enough to beat someone like her . . . yet.)
So, watch the blogosphere, and you will soon see Trigreyhound bedecked in maple leaf garb singing "O Canada." Ugly American, I am not. And I pay my bets.

Congrats on finishing! Can't wait to hear how you did and what you endured along the way! (I hear this is really a tough, hilly, hot course!)

Bugger... I was hoping for a Texas victory on home turf. Congrats on finishing an uber-scary couse again!

Great blog.

I did my first 1/2 Iron last weekend in lovely Lubbock. Only my second tri. My cat could have swam faster, my 11 year old ridden faster and I don't even want to talk about the run (or was that a walk, hum) but I finished.

Looking forward to you next post!

Dude. Where were You? huh? hiding out in the bushes? Dang. I can't believe we didn't meet.

AGAIN!

don't worry... i've decided that the pirate isn't real. merely a figment of our imagination. no one's ever seen her in real life...
