Official Tri U Mah results

Quick post...the official Tri U Mah indoor triathlon results are in. My distances were very close, but here's what they had;

Swim:  .742 Mile
Bike: 9.06 Miles
Run: 3.35 Miles
Total: 13.152

Overall, had thing not gone so wrong, I may have place in the top 3 of my age group. That would have been cool. Interesting note when I looked at the other age group distances, the 50+ mens age group winner went 16.4 miles, 3 miles farther than the second place finisher. That's awesome! I can only hope I would get into double digits when I'm in my fifties. Of course, I'll probably take up golf (again) by then. 

Oh yeah, and for those of you who don't have children, remember that no matter what you are training and racing for (Ironman, marathon, 5K, hot dog eating contest, etc.),  a sick kid always comes first. I've had a 4 year old with a fever for the last couple days and it breaks my heart to see her in pain, so needless to say, no "training".  We took her to the doctor and she didn't have an ear infection, strep throat, or anything else they could think of and thought it was just a "bug" that needed to run its course.  So my diagnosis is that she is suffering from BEIBER FEVER! 

The 18 week marathon training plan starts on 2/14 and the weather is finally going to warm up. It's about damn time as it hasn't been above single digit temps for highs all week and this morning is was -14.   

Happy "Training"! 


  1. I can totally agree with your kids sick = no training. My kids (6yr old and 16 month old)were sick the 3rd week of Jan, then I got the flu and so did the wife as well. Kind of derailed training. Now everyone is good, so I am trying to get back into the swing of things again. Still awesome that you did pretty well despite equipment malfunctions

  2. That's one of my biggest challenges, getting back into the swing of things after a lay off. I sometimes swim at Blackhawk on Saturday mornings (not today however). Maybe we'll bump into each other sometime.
