More Muddy Gear West Duathlon Photos

>> Tuesday, May 24, 2011

In my race report yesterday, I noted that I pulled up along side of the first place relay for a while as I came up to Tiffany, but I couldn't make the pass. Here are 2 photos she took of that:


Running through the blossoms (with local speedster Charlie R back there)


Ducking back in behind the first relay for a few more minutes

Last year (the 3rd year at this race), I finally cracked the "top 10" in the 2nd run. This year, I was in the top 10 for BOTH runs!




(That's the other relay runner 2 spots behind me)

Lots of photos have been showing up on Facebook that highlight the muddy run conditions. Here are 4 images that Paul Phillips took of Kortney losing a shoe:



Denny's photo a bit later shows her running with the shoe:



And one of Nick's photos shows Patrick Parish (who finished second) running out of the trees carrying one of his shoes:



And here are some more from the nasty run:


Julia trying to avoid a nasty spot. Read her lips: "Oh Shhhhhhit!"


Nice splash photo


Going in deep. (Fighting my "Michael Scott" urge right now.....)


One of the few that went down

I think it's cool that both of your run times are almost exactly the same, as opposed to just about everyone else who slowed down some. Congrats on a great race!

I wondered what ever happened to Brooks and Chad - switched to multisport, I see.
