We had a great time at the party and met a nice tri-couple, Jack & Tina. Also, 18 Pro-triathletes from around the world were there, talking to everyone. The Maddogs offer homestays to all the pros which is a great way to share your love of the sport.
Saturday morning, I went over to watch the Meek & Mighty Mini-tri at the North Shore Pool a block away. The race consists of 10 laps of the pool, a 2 mile bike, and a 1 mile run. Very inspiring seeing all the children competing along with a number of adults. Some of the kids had expensive bikes; our future pro's. In the afternoon, we went to Clearwater to eat at Columbia's on the bay and then I put my bike in transition. Close by the Expo was the first portable wind tunnel; really cool! You could rent time in it to improve your speed.
I finished the 10K run (56:28 with 9:05 mile splits) and crossed the finish line at 2:53:09, my 3rd fastest time at St. Anthony's. Sandy met me there after chasing me around all morning and a few minutes later Sister Madonna crossed the line too. Sandy got her to autograph her book and we chatted a bit before heading over to the food tent. I finished 38th out of 83 in my age group; happy my injury didn't slow me down much.
