"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

# 142 Port Orange Triathlon

Today was the Port Orange Triathlon on the Halifax River by Daytona Beach. Finished 2nd in my age group (by 57 seconds to Matt Mahoney) but I think I would have been closer to the victor as the run course was 4 miles instead of 2 and I was picking up speed. The turn-around banner was placed at mile 1 instead of 2! Felt very strong on the bike and the run.  
Moulton SST performed great: now with bladed spokes on both wheels. Sapim CX-Ray aero spokes from Wheelbuilder.com.  Averaged 18.8 because we had 2 bridge crossings.
Water temp was 80', air was 80' at start, 88' at finish in the Florida sun! 
Lots of photographers on course and they gave the pix away. A Morgan trike showed up at the finish!
