Sh*t Show

Back in the 'ville so this will serve as the official Waterfront Triathlon race report. As the title indicates, the race went pretty poorly for me. I was really disappointed with my swim, had an expectantly slow bike ride, then a very sub par run. I could list a myriad of excuses but they would be just that... excuses. Anyway, I think I was 4th but I could very well have been lower if any age groupers beat me (which certainly is very possible given the less than stellar performance on my part.)

Other than that, the trip to the Chattanooga was a lot of fun. We had a really fancy dinner the night before the race and then hit up Lupi's for pizza and beer after the race. Eric and I split a kick ass pizza with spicy chicken, basil, roasted red peppers, sundried tomatoes, and red onions and I washed it down with a St Peter's English Ale. The great food, drink, and company almost made up for the shit race. Now its off to Club Pub!

Ahhh - grasshopper - you've stumbled upon one of life's great principles: If you don't race well, at least eat well.

Shake it off (the race, not the meal) and get back at it.
