Boise 70.3

Posted in Triathlon with tags , , , , on June 14, 2011 by brianestover

Cory raced at the Boise 70.3 this past weekend. For him it was another race another PB. He is 2 for 2 in his long course racing this year for PB’s. Ending your season with a PB is never a shabby thing. The only bad thing about ending your season with a PB is now you’ve moved the bar higher for the next race.

Cory is off for the rest of the year to fight the forest fires raging across the southwest and western US. I think it would be amazing to see what Cory could do if he was able to train for triathlon for a full year to year and a half with out fire season getting in the way.

First off congrats to Tom. He set a new PB at the Switzerland 70.3 the other weekend, almost cracking 5 hr. He also negative split the run while doing most of his running as water running. His NP/AP was 212/194. Congrats to Cory as well who finished 8th in his age group at the Boise 70.3. He moved up six spots in his age group with a negative split run. NP/AP 215/208.

I’m pretty excited. I harvested my first crop this morning. Potatoes. It’s pretty late to be harvesting a winter crop here in southern AZ. Plant late, have an unusually cool and wet spring then reap what you sow. I’m small potatoes.

Now I need to figure out what summer plants I can grow. There are four empty planters on the back porch and I’ve got two more composting.

My new kid arrived this week. Brought it home and now I have no idea what to do. I think every new parent is like that. Lucky for me, my kid comes with four instruction manuals and an informative cd. Not that I’d read or watch those. Like every proud parent, I’m posting pics of my extremely good looking kid. Takes after his Dad if I do say so myself, good looking, not the bike part. Pretty soon though, I’m going to flog my new one, like every good parent should.
