On Saturday, before the yellow shorts made their special appearance in Lake Mendota, I went for an ACTUAL swim. Here are 2 photos from James that show Sarah and I getting back from a 800 - 1000 meter open water swim:

I’m giving love to Rural Girl on the far left.
There were 2 guys that went out faster than us, and I was in the next group of 5 guys. We did one loop on the run course: 13.1 miles. Here’s the group I ran with:
Coach Dan, Art, Stu, and Charlie
“Who’s there?... It’s too bright. I can’t see...”
“Oh, it’s James! Smile!”
With a few miles left in the run, Art’s nipples were rubbing. He asked if it was uncouth to borrow someone else’s nipple band-aids. Stu gave Art his nipple-aids, and Art put them on without breaking stride:
Pharmie came back from a slightly shorter run, we got back to the hotel, showered, packed up, and headed to our last stop of the day: Endurance House (a tri store). WIBA hosted a bike clinic just outside of Endurance House. Here’s a photo of Chris talking over some derailleur issues:
One and a half weeks until Pharmie and I compete in the Lifetime Fitness Triathlon at Lake Nokomis!
