Comments:

We rode the 67 mile course, the 80 miles includes the ride from/to home.

We started in the 100 corral since that's what we registered for and that is a much nicer start. More serious and well behaved bikers. I was really concerned and not enjoying myself for the first 15 or so. I felt slow and was getting passed like crazy. I tried to tell myself to let it go, but it's hard. We finally settled in a rhythm, riding near people more our speed. Bob hadn't been riding as much this year, so we scaled it WAY back the last half. I felt bad for him, he looked miserable. We were both glad to be home!

"Fandom" in triathlon compared to other sports. If you're a sports fan and simply love to follow sport, why pick a sport that may offer a view of the start, the finish and a few moments in between?

Don’t forget this is an incredibly big year for sport with the Olympics back in Athens where the modern Olympics started, and especially triathlon to make its second appearance.
