Assorted Triathlon Pics

I (thankfully) have done too many triathlons this summer to give each one their own race report.  Rather, I should say 20+ hours a week of Ironman training doesn't allow for elaborate blogging.  I've done 3 more races since my last write-up; Vincentown Sprint, HITS Half Ironman, and the New Jersey State Olympic Triathlon.

Fortuitously, we've had really dry (read: rain free) this spring/summer - which is not great for crops, but is ideal for triathlon races and all-day training rides.

Here's a smattering of pictures from the last 2 months.

HITS Half Ironman (Catskill Mountains, Upstate New York)

Clear, clean, and cold mountain lake.  1.2 mile swim.

Double watches?  Double watches.

Vincentown Sprint Triathlon

 New Jersey State Triathlon - Olympic Distance

Actual finishing time: 2:37:33.  26:00 minutes faster than 2011
