Crab Trap 2008

On Saturday I raced the Crab Trap Triathlon. It was a pretty fast race - 400 meter swim in the gulf, 10 mile bike, 3 mile run. The weather was perfect (except for the head wind most of the bike) but it was not hot, humid and sticky like the past few races! Mom came to the race as well and brough Lilly (the dog). It was exciting for her to see what I've been spending most of my time doing the past few months! Anyway - here is the break down of my race:

Distance Short
Clock Time 1:05:03
Overall Place 130 / 377
Gender Place 17 / 131
Division Place 9 / 28
Sextotal 120
Divtotal 28
Swimplace 51
Swimtime 7:29
Bikeplace 149
Biketime 32:50
Runplace 108
Runtime 24:45

So overall I got 9th in my age group out of 28 BUT 17th out of 131 women who competed. The compitition in my age group was pretty stiff!! And FINALLY the race shirt was decent. The past races I've done, the shirt have automatically turned into dust rags!

Anyway - after the race, we went out to Navarre and I checked out a bike I was thinking of purchasing. It fit perfectly - so I'm now a proud owner of my first Tri Bike. And Ultralight with a butterfly saddle (VERY comfortable for those 40+ miles biek rides!) and a ton of other extras the past owner threw in! Yeah!!!

Also, my Grandmother and mom are in town. Yesterday my Grandmother celebrated her
80th - YES 80TH!!! birthday!
