While it does look like a compelling read, sadly that is not the case. What the title is referring to is the Burley Lions Club Spudman Triathlon.
everything is blurrier in Idaho - seriously, I could only find this one logo for the Spudman Tri online.
Thanks to a friend (Thanks, Steve) who works for one of the sponsors of the Spudman Tri, I was able to get into it even though registration was closed.
So, I have an Olympic-distance triathlon coming up in slightly less than 3 months time. Probably should put down the diet-coke, and start training.
Seriously, with only 3 months until the race there are a few things that I need to do.
- Hotel room - this is a popular race. We checked a few of the hotels to see if we could get a room... no vacancy. Fortunately, Kelly has family living in the Burley area. Hope they don't mind having a houseguest for an evening?
- Wetsuit - I went down to PowerTri to rent a wetsuit. This was the first time that I have tried on a wetsuit. That was an interesting sensation, being encased in a rubber suit from my wrists to my ankles. I felt like a sausage.
- Training - I haven't been near a swimming pool to swim laps since last November, and haven't ran since then either. I need to get going.
Oh, and another note. I'll be doing this triathlon on a completely plant-based diet. Go vegan!
