Day 76 – The Last Athlete
So there’s a hashtag on Facebook: #triathlonchallenge. I’m not sure if it’s a big deal or a local thing, but apparently it’s associated with a challenge. And I’ve been properly challenged.
It goes something like this: Sami challenges me to post a picture every day for the next 10 days. I can’t write a caption. I can’t write an explanation. I just post the pictures with the hashtag and then nominate someone else to do the same thing. The goal is to spread the joy of triathlon to all the unsuspecting Facebook friends.
For the next several blog posts, I’m going to post the same pictures with short explanations.
The last athlete on the IRONMAN 70.3 North Carolina bike course
It was mile 53 of the IRONMAN 70.3 North Carolina bike course and the cut off time was a couple of minutes away. Drivers were irritated by the traffic and cops were yelling at us to close the course. The athlete in the picture gave it a good shot, but it just wasn’t her day. There would be no IRONMAN victory for her that day.
