Steamboat Classic 2008 Triathlon
This weekend was a very active one. I biked from Columbia, IL to Cape Girardeau, MO to participate in the Steamboat Classic Triathlon. The ride down was a little over 100 miles, crossing the river at Chester. The weather was perfect, clear and in the 60s. I was a little fatigued for the race the next morning, but I managed to plod through. 500m swim, 15.5 mile bike, 5 mile run. The last, unofficial results I saw placed me at 35th overall. Not great, but not bad considering the previous day's ride.
UPDATE: Below is a map of our route I put together using MapMyRide.com
UPDATE: Officially finished 39th (1:35:52)
