Investor`s Group Triathlon - Team Event Update.
It was a perfect day for the 2007 event.......sunny and warm with little wind. Jim came out of the water with approximately the same time as last year so I didn`t leave transition until several minutes after a couple strong teams. Fellow bike club members Norm and Jeanne both left before me so I knew I had some work to do.
I ended up placing 3rd in the bike and, unfortunately, don`t have a team placing as Paul`s timing chip didn`t register his run time as he passed over the mat. When I left he and Jim were sorting out the details with the race officials. Fortunately he finished shoulder to shoulder with another runner so we are hoping he will be granted the same time.
Overall it was a great day and we did not repeat as Champs but the quality of the team event is growing as is the whole competition. It was my understanding there were 250 registered participants. Nice!
Update to follow.Well done all!
Update - Jim sent me the results and we were given 4th place after Paul`s run time was finalized. My time for the bike leg was 38:16 good for third place on the bike section of the team event and a twenty second improvement on 2006`s result.
