IC3 Team Tri at Eagle Creek

IC3 was represented today at Eagle Creek Park in the team division of the July sprint triathlon. Chris Hutchison did the swimming. Kenny Tranbarger did the cycling, and I did the running. We were competing in the all male team division with intentions of taking down the top time. Chris started us as well as any college swimmer should with the fastest swim split out of all competitors on the day. The timing chip was passed to Kenny and his speedy Cervelo P1. With a sore back and a windy course, he still managed a respectable 21.7 MPH average on the 10 mile course and the 25th fastest bike split for the day out of all competitors. The running leg went off without a hitch, but was also pathetically slow. It so happened to be ~50 seconds slower than my previous 3 mile run split when I was doing all three events. Nice! Although the team who ended up just behind us in the standings was catching us quickly on the run, we managed to hold it down for a victory. We stopped the clock in just over 55 minutes, and a victory by about 1 minute and 30 seconds over 2nd place. Well done guys!

Hammer On,


Live, Ride, Die...Live!
