Ipswich YMCA Triathlon Results

Yesterday, the Britt-Webb family and the "North Andover Britt" family enjoyed a great outing at Crane’s Beach on the occasion of the Ipswich YMCA Triathlon. My brother-in-law and his son, Frank and Tyler Britt, and I got there around 4pm to get our registration packets and set up our gear. Our families arrived in time to meet us before the event kicked off and to cheer us on through the race.

Sixty Mile Ride with Adam Branfman and PMC Team Kermit

Went out for a bike ride this morning with my friend, Joe Verdone. We planned to do a decent 47 mile loop through Weston and Concord. About ten miles into the ride, we bumped into a group of four other riders, including an old friend and former colleague Moe Blaustein. They were going a little further than we planned, but they seemed like a good group and invited us to tag along, so tag we did.

First Swim Across Crystal Lake

I did my first swim in Crystal Lake today. While the water was a little murky green and I wondered sometimes what I might encounter out in the middle of the lake, it went very well overall.

According to Google Earth, the lake is 475 meters between the northeast and southwest corners. I did two laps, or four lengths of the lake. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn’t have any problems swimming the distance. Each time, I made each crossing in roughly 12 minutes, or 2:32 per 100 meters. I even found that I felt nearly as good on the fourth crossing as I did on the first.

I’m still very slow and have a long way to go on technique. But it’s good to know I should have no problem completing the swim in an Olympic-distance triathlon.

Swim Drafting

Drafting IS legal in the open water - here is an example- swimming in another’s wake cuts huge resistance..


Fifteenth Anniversary

It’s hard to believe that today marks 15 years since Laurel and I were married! What an incredible ride this has been. I am so lucky and blessed, beyond what I could have imagined.

Here is a short walk up memory lane.
