This year has been a bust though. I entered the complete High Five events series, but have missed all but one race, and that was cancelled due to lightening just before race time. Tomorrow, 7/21 is the only one I'll be in town for in the remainder of the series, so I need to make it worth the race.
Over in Boulder they organize a slightly shorter Stroke and Stride Series , I headed over to one race full of anticipation, looking forward to the 750m Swim and 5k Run, only to find on arrival that I'd left my built-up run shoes back at Kates' apartment. I switched to the long couse swim, 1500m which didn't work out so well, even though I swam in my "speed suit". I did the transition, ran through the timing mat and quit. The next event I was better prepared, but a Kate and I drove toward Boulder Reservoir, the weather was closing in.
We arrived to find about 30-athletes huddled under a couple of tents, and the rain steadily coming down, the temperatures dropping. They announced the swim was cancelled and it would be a straight running race, and when the temperatues hit 62f, we got back in the car and left. So, not a great splash and dash season for me. As always, I had a great transition at the first Stroke and Stride though :)
