Has anyone ever done the Southern Wood County tri in Wisconsin Rapids? Looks like it's been a long running event. Thinking of doing it this weekend if the weather cooperates.

I've done it the last few years.
Chilly water, really flat bike and run around the lake with just a couple short ups that is 3.6 or 3.7 long.
If you like small, friendly YMCA races that are not challenging it is perfect.
Unless you are 45-49 then I just remembered that it sucks so don't bother driving down.

Thanks! It's the first tri of the year and I like the smaller events to get my year going so I thought it would be a good one as long as it doesn't rain. Don't worry....I'm in the 40 to 44 bracket.

Weather does not look good. Unless it is severe with no end in sight I am still going over to the race. It's only 45 min away and I paid so why not.
If you do go and it is on I will be the red Giant bike on the first rack.

Fingers crossed!

I have always been an athlete, growing up playing team sports like basketball and soccer. I also ran in a couple of 10K races every year, so I had no reason to worry about running a 5K...right?

After I left the running store, I couldn't stop thinking about the sprint tri and how much of a challenge it would be for me. So instead of joining a gym, I started riding my bike and it felt great.

A product review of the Louis Garneau Tri Air Triathlon Shoe. After nearly two years of testing, see how this shoe performed. Currently being replaced by the Tri Air 2.

I couldn’t help but feel that the race had beaten me. Perhaps duathlons were more for me? No, I was more determined than ever to succeed. I was determined to get on top of my swimming.

This life of mine is not so different from yours. It has a multitude of similarities. I suffer from uncertainty, I get nervous at the thought of registering and when getting to the starting line.

I am not going to buy a tri-suit before my first tri - I want to make sure I am going to stick with this before I spend a lot of money on it so I want to figure out what will work best.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
