About that triathlon

Today was my fourth assault and third completion of the Richwood (really Greenbrier and Pocahontas County) Scenic Mountain Triathlon. Considering how closely I came to dropping out several times and how long it took me to limp across the finish line, I have only this to say:

*Thanks to some friends who helped pull me through.

*If I do this again, I really need to learn to swim. It felt like the lake hated me and it was mutual.

*The next time a certain friend of mine gets a bright idea, I hope he pitches it to somebody else;

but more to the point:

*Been there, done that, got the tee shirt.

Next up? Probably a 25K trail run. At least it's on solid ground and doesn't involve gear.
