Timberman 2010

It's been a busy summer. This photo was from the finish of the Timberman 70.3 Half-Ironman Triathlon in August. At least I think it was at the finish. I certainly look like I'm ready to sit on the couch for a while. But it could have been the halfway-point of the run. Anyway, this shot was obviously taken by a race photographer, and I'm sorry I don't have a name to credit.

I spent a LOT of time training for this race, and it paid off. I came in at 5:29:51, taking a full 20 minutes off my time from the previous year.

Anyway, now I'm off this weekend to do yet another, the Ironman 70.3 Syracuse in New York. My friend Jason and I are road-tripping over there to see what we can do in this race's inaugural year.

[UPDATE: Syracuse was freakin' awesome. I took another 10 minutes off, finishing the race in 5:19:12. The swim was cold to start but went smoothly (despite all the weedy vegetation in the pond), the bike was hilly and hard but very scenic and tons of fun, and the run went so much better than any other half-iron run I've done.]
