This was one heck of a weekend for the P family. No sooner had the dust cleared on my final duathlon of the summer than we were back at Rancho Seco for two more races – Little Boy competed in the TRI for KIDS series championships and IronHubs did the TRI for REAL Olympic distance. In all my excitement, I ended up taking like a bajillion photos of the day, but I’ve pared it down for you (though it might not seem like it)! First up, Little Boy, who was racing for the first time as an 11-year old (which meant his swim was 3x as long as it was just last month as a 10-year old). 150 yard swim, 4 mile bike, 1 mile run.
As if one awesome race wasn’t enough excitement for the day, IronHubs was off on his Olympic-distance adventure just moments after Little Boy crossed the finish line:
This video does a nice job capturing just how hot, dusty and desolate the run course is. Plus, it shows IronHubs passing another guy. Run time plus T2 time – 40:58.
