Such a proud moment. Blair raced his 3rd tri this year and was 3rd in his age group. After seeing him struggle swimming 75 yards in his previous tri and only completing 50 of it, I had major reservations of him doing 200. Then after watching him progress from all the swimming at camp and Big V, he was really getting the hang of it. Plus he recently joined swim team so that was a big, big help. Not only did he finish his swim, he did it in 5:33. He was out of T1 before I could even get a picture. Both his bike and run were so fast, we were wondering did he just turn around too early but he didn’t. One very proud moment and look at these splits:
His swim – 5:33 (200 yrd)
T1 – 2:07
Bike – Not disclosed to protect the “innocent” on the trail since there is a 15 MPH limit after all. (1 1/2 mile)
T2 – 0:21
Run – 2:41 (1/2 mile)
As you can tell, he just had a ball and makes his daddy so, so proud.
Well, it wasn’t pretty but my boy did great. He was able to get in 75 yrds of the swim but not very happy he was the last kid in pool (because he was the youngest). After jumping out of the pool, he was strong on the bike, and finished his run. Man he is a chip off the old block and race this race after his daddy’s style. He ended up podium finish – doesn’t hurt there was nobody in his age group. Otherwise a great experience for him and an active day.
Blair overall time was 28:02 and he was not pleased getting chicked coming to the chute. Even so, here are his strong splits for this long of a distance. Here are his splits:
Swim – 125 Yard – 0:05:14
T1 – 0:01:46
Bike – 2.2 Mile – 0:14:25
T2 – 0:00:35
Run – 0.4 Mile – 0:06:00
