ORN 8/28/05, city bike, 30 min, X 2
Today was the big triathlon in Chicago and I volunteered to help. I did some triathlons years ago, but it just took too much time to be awful at all three sports! But, I still enjoy them. Plus, I think it's important to give back when we can.
I rode to and from the race site, about 6 miles or so each way. Started out at about 4:15 AM, which was a kick. Riding along the lakefront in pitch darkness is a pretty spiritual place. The city is asleep, the lake was calm. Good stuff.
By the time we got to the race site, though, before 5 AM, there was already a buzz of participants getting their stuff ready in the transition area. Quite a contrast.
A good day, all around.
Waddle on, friends.
