They didn't promise me a shirt, because I was a late signer-upper. But I optimistically checked after the race - and they did have some left over.
It's called a Sprint, but it's a quirky set of distances: Swim 1/4 Mile, Bike 13.8 Miles, Run 3.7 Miles. I was on the move for 1 hour 44 minutes.
It was a long drive from my house to Winona Lake, Indiana. About 2 hours with no traffic. The bad news was that I left my house at 3:40 in the morning. The good news was that there was almost no traffic at that time of day.
As the sun came up in North Central Indiana...
Fog rolling over the farmland,
trucks rolling over the road,
triathlon waiting before me,
my brain in groggy mode.
