Cleveland, Ohio
United States
20F / -7C
Total Time = 47m 47s
Overall Rank = 132/1580
Age Group = M40-44
Age Group Rank = 20/95
Event warmup:

Chatted with a bunch of Cleveland Tri Club peeps, an old friend from middle school, and my friend Ed from Team RWB.
  • 47m 47s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 07m 43s  min/mile

Ran this as a 'Flag Run' with my friend Ed, a fellow Team RWB member. Just had fun and tried to focus on decent footing on all of the icy surfaces. He carried the flag on the "out", and I carried it most of the way back before handing it to him for the crossing of the finish. We passed an incalculable number of "Pink Nightmare's", "Black Bart's", "Flick's", Santa's, and old men in bathrobes. I even wore my official replica Randy scarf (but I ran out of time in making the big red snowsuit that would have kept my arms from going down).
What would you do differently?:

Warm down:

I did not forget my Ovaltine (yes, it was a post-race offering)!!

Event comments:

With a showing of the movie on a gigantic screen in Public Square after the race it was a pretty epic inaugural event to attend and the medal is a major award!

Course: Out and back lollipop course - from Public Square to the A Christmas Story! House, and back.

A good sport story gets better with time. Sometimes, it’s because the story has a new teller, a new listener or a new twist; a purposeful tweak that makes a little tale something of legend.

All I can think about is, "How can I swim in this?" I can't sleep. I think I made a big mistake. I'm filling my head with fear and doubt. What made me think I could run a triathlon?

She's back. We were able to interview Deanna Babcock, a triathlete who galvanized the forums over several months with her story of a tragic accident and subsequent recovery.

Several years ago, I got the urge to do a triathlon. When my second pregnancy occurred almost immediately following the first, I mentioned to my sister-in-law that I would never get around to.
