OVT Results

After much delay and apparent gnashing of teeth the OVT folks posted results from the race this past weekend.
Our crew really represented!
Heather had an incredible 2nd place finish in her age group posting a 1:49:41...a scant :38-seconds from claiming the top spot! Great race, Heather!
Once again, Bird was stellar overall posting a 1:31:31. He was strong in all three disciplines with good times in each. The finish put him in the 6th spot in his group.
TBras was dolphin-like once again coming out of the water 8th overall! I told him we have the number 8 in common because I was one of the last 8 still in the water! Overall Troy came in at 1:40:07 and 11th in the group.
Rory was solid in all three disciplines as well finishing in 1:47:09. Good race, Rory!
I came in at 1:41:17 for a top 5 finish in my group.
This year's OVT was a qualifying race for the USAT Age Group Nationals in Tuscaloosa, Alabama to be held August 22nd. Because of our finishes (top 33% in each age group or top 5, whichever is greater) Heather, Bird and I have qualified. Wow!
As is the case, it seems, in every race I'm sure everyone was pleased with some aspect of the race, wished they would've done a little better in another, but overall happy with the end result and enjoying the endurance life.
Congrats to all!

New Venue for OVT

I just noticed that the venue the 2009 Ozark Valley Triathlon changed. Read about it on the website <>. I'm sure you guys saw an email about it, but just in case, I thought I'd mention it here. So who's in so far?

Winner, Winner...

Hey everybody, check out my new wheels! I'm winning IMFL for sure!

Couple that with my new strategy in the water (notice the fins)......... if I can just do what that guy from "The Biggest Loser" did and have someone drive me in their van for a good portion of the marathon I can complete the cheaters hat-trick!
