Suzanne and Scott headed to suburban Grand Rapids for the Michigan Titanium full aquabike race. Aquabike = triathlon - run = swim, bike, done! Full means 2.4 mile swim and 112 mile bike: Ironman without the pesky marathon at the end.

​Martin’s short version: Sean did a half iron in Springfield and I did a sprint (my excuse: my right foot still hurts). Sean set a new PR at 5:08, and I came in 1st in age group, 8/157 overall. A funny thing happened on the way to the forum, though…

The May Madness sprint tri is held each spring at Lake Sara beach near Effingham, IL.  Four Wild Cards – Martin, Ryan, Suzanne, and Nick - headed down for the race this year for a painful hour+ brick as an early season fitness check. The 400m swim is a single loop in Lake Sara, followed by 13 mile bike and 5k run courses which are both flat and fast out-and-backs.  All four of us took AG podiums, and Suzanne was first overall female.

In the 4/5’s, I crashed in turn 2 of the 2nd lap.  The field was beginning to split and I tried to bomb the turn at 28mph while another XXX rider decided to take the turn at about 17mph and then run his line wide all the way into the curb.
