Had a great event today with my brother-in-law, Frank Britt, at the POWOW Triathlon. We bought our first wet suits yesterday at Fast: Splits Multisport and got to try them out in Lake Gardner. Thanks to Noreen, we have some great pictures to show for our efforts! (Click the Play button to play the slideshow right here. Click on link in lower left to see the Picasa Web Album.)

The weather was nearly perfect and the lake water was warm, so we didn’t need the suits for temperature control, but they sure helped provide buoyancy, especially in the last third of the swim.

According to the official results posted on CoolRunning, the distances were: 750m Swim, 20k Bike, 5k Run. Here’s how Frank and I did.
