The traveling circus took a brief hiatus from racing to rehab a rusty knee, watch every stage of the tour and take some road trips.
Racing action reconvened at the Clark Lake Triathlon. The event was my one year anniversary with multi sport racing and it was cool to see measurable improvements. There was a .5 mile swim, 14 mile bike and 4 mile run. I won the bike slit in my age group, swam slowly and ran with heavy legs. The effort was good for 8th place and the opportunity to take a picture of a guy wearing only a T-shirt and no shorts.
Next stop for the traveling circus is a local sprint just outside of Kalamazoo next saturday. I hope to bring something special.
In the meantime help me decide on a cross frame. Gunnar? Surly? On One? Quiring? Must be single speed friendly, steel and stylish.
