at 24min I was just walking past the first mile marker.
Great turn out, great weather this morning. Delilah had a fit with a couple of the other dogs out there but by the half way point was so tired that she just cared about walking in a straight line lol

Thanks man. I think if I didn't run yesterday I could have gotten under 7 minute miles. That was my goal. Only got passed by 2 girls too. One was smokin' hot with daisy duke style college shorts, dark tan, and a tramp stamp. Tried my best to follow her, but I failed miserably.

Anyone ever done this before and found their results? It was chip timed, so I'm sure they are somewhere, I just can't find them to save my life.

Can you leave an R6 to me in your will?

I'm sure you have something in your shop that interests me that I could just walk out with.
And if not, I guess I'll just take a pair of gixxers and maybe I can trade them in.

If there's anything left after the bank comes through it's yours.

Found them. I got 52nd out of 1458. Better result than I would have thought. Just under 22 minutes at a 7:05 pace. Pretty happy with that.

Nice work, Ken.

Hey, are you doing the Chase Corporate Challenge? You should have a CP team entered.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Chills misses you man! Since he ditched cycling he knows he won't see you anymore.

It's a little bromance!! Lol

I'm pretty sure if he really did stop riding we will see him a little more after the Naperville tri once he gets his ass kicked in the bike portion.

I miss both of you! There's an empty spot where Ken and Brian used to be.

I didn't ditch cycling, I still ride, but more up in the WI countryside than in the Chicago burbs.

I'm going to do fine on the cycling portion and I'm working on swimming. I got noseplugs and earplugs and they're making a huge difference. You two watch out!

Wat?

Maybe your swim will be fast, but your transition time taking all your equipment off is gonna kill you. I'm sure your on pace though with your training. It will be a fun summer.
