A sprint triathalon is as follows:
- A quarter mile swim (yes, you can side stroke / doggy paddle that far).
- A 12 mile bike ride. (Apparently this is where I was supposed to catch her.)
- A 5K run.
Like the words, "Running," "Work," "Pain," "Getting up," and my favorite, "Not Bacon," we have a natural aversion to anything which might be hard. I'm only going to say this once... Last year I was beat by a 13-year-old girl. Badly. I mean she and her mom were carrying their bikes to the car when I dragged my self across the finish line.
Sounds like quite a challenge? You have to finish in 15 minutes, so cheating is definitely encouraged.
There are two coming up:

- My First Triathalon: http://www.triathlons.net/Atlanta/ (This one's in June for those of you who want to come beat me like some 80's cartoon villain. )
Oh, and I'm pretty sure the entire cast of Buford's Biggest Loser was right behind me at the finish line - I will have to do better this year.
