    Just back from Cayuga Triathlon!! My friend won his age group!

    Forumite from Bicycling.com. Tons of fun - met up with 5 other forumites - 4 of which I've never seen but have talked to for the last 4yrs+

    Great to put faces to Forum handles!!!

    And I lost track of everyone in the early hours so I'm walking and walking, scored several new Cayuga Tri cowbells for my friends - and walking - and passed a Volunteer booth where they were signing in the registered volunteers and, thought wth, went and signed up. Got a nice brilliant orange (luv orange - schweet!!) Cayuga Tri shirt and went and set up the finish line by unloading bags of ice (no 10 pounders here - nooo, lets talk 40 lbs plus bags of ice!) and gatarade - then got snatched up to be a road marshall at the bicycling-running transition stage.

    I'm good at road marshalling hehe. HEY - YOU - YOU CAN'T CROSS THE COURSE NOW - BICYCLISTS COMING - YEAH YOU! Hehe - They even gave me a flag and a WHISTLE. I'm goooooooood!!!

    Oh yeah, and road a good 25 mile ride with the group the previous day - on a ride one of the local forumites set - "had a few hills in it, etc".

    I call BS. Cayuga is in the finger lakes - watkins glen area. Small mountainous (gorgeous too) area. "few hills" bah. And I wasn't able to take my roadbike - so I rode a friend's girlfriend's commuter bike. Ohhh, those many uphills were killers! Ones where my legs were shaking (and I do hills alot too!)

    Have a terrific sunburn on my face, but had a great time. My friend came in first in his age group (yee haw - podium queen as he got his medal!) - and now has qualified for a Tri in Portland next June.

    Watch out Portland people in June 2008 - Tude will be there!!!!

    Tomorrow ... or possibly the next day --- I think I took over 200 pics - of campsite, race and scenery. Have to download and resize ... oh, yes and WORK too!

    But I'll post of my other forum ride and friends.

    Sometime in the future I'd like to participate in a communal gathering of some east coast Foo friends or who knows - perhaps some West Coasters as I'll be out there ...

    Well, you're coming to Portland, OR next summer, right? There are lots of people cycling around here that would love to show you around Not sure how many are tri. You could post in the Pacific Northwest regional forum if you like.

    Looking forward to seeing the pics!

    hehe, just noticed where you're from!

    The Tri he qualified for is the USAT Age Group Nationals held in Forest Grove next June. Right now there are three of us on board going it (we're flying in) - plus several of the forumites from another bicycling forum will most likely be coming. Nice to plan early!
