OWS Lesson on sighting...

Well... I am finally getting around to writing my entry on this month's race... and after A LOT of abuse from my Brother on my style of previous posts... I am going to make this one short...

25th Annual Summer Sprint Triathlon
Lorain, OH
Lakeview Park

Swam, biked, ran... lost to my Brother by 2:59... took a wave in the face on a forward look for sighting and coughed uncontrollably for about 325 of the 400 yards. LESSON: forward sighting= good; forward breathing in rough water=bad. Bike course was flat but bumpy. Had one of my best runs but not enough to catch my Brother. The family support was incredible.... I cannot overstate just how awesome it is to have your family there cheering you on for those fleeting moments in transition... sucks for them but motivating to me! The end!

1:18:59 total
