Should have jumped in the lake but didn't. Rubbed right contact lens behind my eye, had to fish it out.

Speed on the run, and bad swim!!!

Event comments:

Newington Bike had door prizes to kill for!!! Aero bars, tires, accessories, wine - tons of it!! Way better than any Ironman event ever!!!

Did the Timberman HIM on Sunday, I was surprised to be able to do this Olympic on Sunday.
