No 3rd place this time...

nope, this time it was... 2nd Place! :)

Had a very good day and managed to get 2nd place in my age group at the Austin Tri on Labor Day. Pretty good swim (for me), solid bike, and then had a very good run. Hopefully I did not push it too hard, as I'm getting real close to Sep 19th and the Redman triathlon. Shouldn't be an issue, though, as I have very little soreness today and feel pretty good. Most importantly, no injuries and no major mechanical/bike issues. Still wish that I didn't give up so much time in the swim. Doing much better last couple years, but sometimes I wonder if it's possible for us old guys without the swim background to ever catch the true "fishes". That's the truly addictive part of this sport, is that you NEVER feel like you're as fast as you can be. There is always a way to improve your swim, or bike, or run, or transitions, or whatever...
