The Last Triathlon of the Season - The Story

First I have to give a big SHOUT OUT to Mr. Geek for his last Triathlon of the season. Although he doesn't get his own blog posting (or even any pictures, the shame), congratulations to Mr. Geek for finishing the Fall Triathlon consisting of a 500 meter swim, a 21 mile bike ride and a 5 mile run in well under 2 hours (1 hour 51 minutes), scoring a Personal Best and finishing 7th in his age group. Let's hear a big WOOHOOO!!!!

Now on to the Littlest Geek's Triathlon. (Sorry Mr. Geek, but LG is just a bit cuter.)

The swim was a short 50 m. No big deal for this seasoned Triathlete.



Transitioning to the bike in the month of October is just a little different than in the summer. It was a chilly morning.
The transition was very smooth.
Look at Team Geek Go!

I was worried a bit about the bike, because it was on the streets. The lane was marked by big orange cones, but a mother worries.
The biking was for 1.5 miles - Piece of Cake!

Now it was time for the run. This has been the hardest part for the Littlest Geek (and Mr. Geek too). I can't blame him, running a mile after swimming and biking.
Look how he took off out of the transition area. Can he keep up this amazing pace?
Here he is starting the street course - still looking strong!
And here is the Finish Line!!!
He ran the entire way!!!

WOW! The Littlest Geek came a long, long way from his first triathlon!
Just wait til next year!

Congrats Mr. Geek!!! It is really an outstanding performance! I am also into long distance running but I am not as good at a triathlon. I do more of marathons and cross country races. Anyways... yours was an excellent performance with good timing! Bravo!!! You are an inspiration for all of us! Keep it up!! Cheers to you!
