Dog Tired

Well, hey there 'BoomerNation!

It's the morning after racing the Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs Lake Triathlon in Lubbock, TX and am I feeling good. A full race report is to follow after I return to Dallas late tonight.

I joined the TriDiva herself, Kona Shelly, and the speedy wonderdog, TriGreyhound, for an ubercool weekend of racing, laughs, and eating... and more eating. Doesn't get much better than that. Nope... it doesn't.

Her Divaness whipped us two 'mericans while smashing her 70.3 personal best by five minutes over a much harder course. And the dawg bested me by 34 seconds. Well... that's after taking into account a two minute blocking penalty so undeservedly thrown my way. More to follow on that... I GARE-ON-TEE it.

Seriously, he had a great race and beat me fair and square. Congrats, 'hound.

Until my return to Big D...

Stay tuned...
