It’s Race Week!

That’s right, although I was in Atlanta learning about Calendar Spreads, Iron Condors, Butterflies, and Vertical Spreads, it was still Race Week. Actually, it was The Younger’s birthday as well.

This Sunday, I have the Tellico Sprint Triathlon. The name says (most of) it all. It’s in the Tellico Area, across the Tellico Dam, just East of Lenoir City, Tn (and that’s pronounced like Lenore in The Raven, not Frenchlike). It’s a 800 meter (about 1/2 mile) river swim, 16 mile bike ride in the passive hills of the Great Smoky Mountains and a 4 mile run to round things out. This will be the third time that I have done this race and only the second time that I have done it as an individual. I did it back in 2006 with my friend Gray (Like the color) and he took care of the bike ride for me. This year, I will have to get by on the bike.

The first time that I did this race, I was the very first… door prize winner! I got a Mastercraft visor that I love and when I do have short hair, I wear it often.

It’s going to be fun this weekend, because My Lovely and Talented Wife is going to bring The Elder and The Younger to the race. This’ll be their first race… well, actually it’ll be their second race, they saw me at the 2006 Knoxville Marathon. However, this’ll be their first race with all the swimming and bikes and running, so it should be interesting for them.

And like usual, I will be having a Guess My Time, Win Crap contest.
