This is my first tri after my injury at the Scenic 17 Tri seven weeks ago. I bruised tendons on my right foot stepping off the road on the run leg. I didn't do any activity (did RICE) for a week after and my right foot turned purple. I resumed swimming and cycling cautiously as it healed and did a few 1-2 mile runs in the last 2 weeks. I thought the Clermont Sprint would be a good first race back.
I've done Clermont Sprints for years starting in June of 1994, five months after we moved to Florida. The big surprise today was that the old, cramped Highland Hut had vanished, replaced by a huge new pavilion and building; very nice! Another surprise was that there were over 600 competitors.
