Mayflower Triathlon

Sometimes, things just don't go your way. This was one of those days... Got lost 3 times on the course while leading the race, the 3rd time being strike #3 (DNF/Walk back to transition after running 1/2 mile in the wrong direction). Usually helps when the RD at least has arrows out there on the run course, but volunteers who know which way to send you always helps as well.

Oh well...

In the end, it's not life and death, so I'll do my best to put today aside and move on. I read an article about a Marine Unit fighting in Afghanistan yesterday that puts days like today into complete perspective. This one is definitely worth a read and will remind you about what some people face on a daily basis and, what they give up. We complain about a bad workout or race while 21 year olds are losing their lives out in some dusty, lonely corner of the Earth.

In happier news, Crystal won!!! I'm very happy for her. Great to watch her continue to improve...
