Triathlon/Ragamuffin Top Update

So I’m a bit overdue on this one, but I’ve been on vacation. So get over it.

Last Saturday I checked off one of the first things from my bucket list (a small one really) since I made it as well as a goal (or kinda half of one) for the Ragamuffin Top challenge.

I did my first triathlon!
It was freaking sweet.
I gotta say, there’s nothing like the feeling of running across the finish line for the first time after spending months getting ready.
Even if it was a fairly short sprint, it felt like a big accomplishment and great introduction into the sport.
And it made me aware just how much work I REALLY need to do before my Olympic distance in P.G. a month and a half from now!!

I’ll share more details on how the race went, play by play, later this week. ┬áBut in the meantime, check out the video below to get a glimpse of what the morning of my first triathlon was like.
My favorite moment in the video is right around 4:45.
But if you have a weak stomach, or just don’t like grossness, you may wanna skip from 4:30 to about 4:50.
There’s the disclaimer.
You’ve been warned!

    Bobby… great job and thanks for the video report. when you say… not sure how many you’ll do consider this. I just got off the phone with Bill Bell who’ll be 86 in November and he has done 32 Ironman races and is still racing! Hang in there and keep up the good work.

    I was perusing your bucket list…..I’m thinking the next do-able one is probably the hot air balloon!
