On the start line, two-time and reigning Ironman World Champion Chrissie Wellington, reigning 70.3m World Champion and from Bowie.....Iain Banks. Yeah, my name doesn't quite have the same draw as the two former names on the start list for the Columbia Triathlon this Sunday. The pro field sure is stacked (Riche Cunningham, both Lovatos, Wassner, etc) and it would be good to actually watch, just a shame that I am racing while they are!
This week has been cool....off work and training hard. I am just training through the race this weekend and so shall be interesting to see what kinda of time I can put up. Last year I came 4th in Age Group (29th overall) and went under 2hrs 10mins......it might be a push this year to beat that time, but we shall see.
