Lebanon Sprint Triathlon 2008
The weather was amazingly hot Saturday morning, considering this is Oregon and it's MAY, we were soaring into the 90s! Usually it's raining and chilly at these early season races, I'm kind of speechless about this crazy weather. Bill raced on Saturday and crossed the finish line sweaty and satisfied with 4th overall. There was some decent competition at the race this year, it is a great course to get some speed work in because the bike is fast and the run is flat.
Bill didn't feel great going into the race and thinks he had a pretty average race, swimming ~6:15, got passed on the bike, and ran ~ 20 minute 5k. He's talking about doing some strength training and track workouts to get his speed back. I like that talk!
I had a very decent sales day with the Tribabe booth, I sold lots of beach towels and literally no fleece at all! We have another triathlon next weekend, Heart of the Valley sprint which is in Corvallis. We'll be coming home early from a camping trip to make it there on Monday but that's fine, Bill's racing again and I'm ready to sell more beach towels. Going to post another post about what I did Saturday afternoon next...
