100 Triathlons

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood...who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly." Theodore Roosevelt 1910

# 122 Inaugural Sylvan Lake Triathlon in Sanford

Pushing hard on the bike!
This morning was the first ever triathlon in Seminole County at Sylvan Lake Park on the south edge of Sanford.  About 150 people competed as the first race in a 4 race series.  The few glitches didn't dampen anyone's spirits and everyone looked like they were having a great time.  I met up with Cerena and Valerie from the Central Florida Triathlon Club and was very pleased when Cerena won her age group...by 2 seconds no less!  Billy Price and the Seminole County Tri Club was much in evidence too and I did get to chat with an old friend, Deanna.  My race was OK, with a 4th place finish after I thought I was getting a 2nd to my old nemesis, Randall Brown.  Better luck next time!
Valerie flying along!
