Non - Race Preview: Young Life Triathlon

Event: Young Life Triathlon (Sprint)
Date: Saturday, August 21
Location: Detroit Lakes, MN
Previous Results: 5th overall in 2009

This would have been my eighth triathlon of the year and my 14th event overall. I say would have been as I won't be racing this coming weekend in Detroit Lakes. The Boy® is still fighting something that we haven't quite figured out yet. He has been running a fever since last Friday night. Plus what we think is pink eye, sinus infection, and ear infection all rolled into one. I believe he has something more sinister. We need to dig further into it. Family first.....always.

Only two triathlons left in the season so they all better be good! After that, the wetsuit won't see water until 2011. Here is the rest of the the season's schedule that is set in stone:

That is too bad for your son. Hopefully he gets better soon. Maybe I will see you at Maple Grove. Should be interesting to try out a first year triathlon.
