Today was the last triathlon at Moss Park for 2012. I did all four Olympic-distance triathlons there this year. Today was great; lake was cool, bike ride was fast and dry, and my run was quick. I finished 2nd to Joe Trettel for the third time this year (I won the second race) but I will leave him behind next year as I will graduate to the 60-64 age group (he's very fast).
But happy as I was with my performance today, I was pleased to meet an amazing family. Eric and Lisa and their 6 children are on vacation from their home in Georgia and decided to throw some triathlons in the mix. Eric did the Olympic distance today (winning the Clydesdale division), Lisa is doing the Sprint tri Sunday, and several of their children are doing the Children's Tri next weekend in Clermont. Eric is a U.S. Marine Corp helicopter pilot and Lisa is an ex-Marine who now takes care of the family.
