Zoot Sprint Triathlon Lake Pleasant


9 June 2007 - Zoot Sprint Triathlon. We were planning on doing this as a relay but we couldn't find a runner so I swam, Fred cycled and we both ran.
This was a fantastic triathlon! The water was clear and warm and an absolute pleasure to swim in. Time 18:50 for 1,000 meters. The run was tough but very enjoyable as we ran along the Pipeline Canyon Trail through the desert and so did very little road running. My running time was 33:30 for about 3 miles. Using the word running is of course an exaggeration as it consisted of walking and plodding. I think that our total time was 1:48:00 so this our figure to beat next year.
This all took place on the west side of Lake Pleasant which is about 45 minutes north west of Phoenix.

why does fred's shirt have sasol written on it?

I think that Sasol sponsored a cycling race called Sasol 100 which he took part in. Not 100% sure but I'll ask him to reply here and let you know.
