Brick then Breakfast

A fun time was had by all!

The Olympic distance Tri Arkansas is in mid-August. Kevin, Heather, Shannon, Kyle and I got a look at the modified bike course today as we did a bike/run brick at the race site.

The 40k route has plenty of hills to get your legs going....and plenty of downhill to make up the difference. Not too much flat road on this course. The hills start early....there's a nice one right out of transition.

There's also a nice hill on the run too coming out of T2.

OK, let's be honest....when I say 'nice' it's not necessarily a good thing.

It was a good day...mild temperatures for this time of year and it was overcast. A dip in the lake felt GREAT after the run.

Maybe the best part of the morning was the tasty breakfast at Cracker Barrel afterwards

The proposed Tri Arkansas brick is scheduled for this Saturday. Who's in?

We can ride the course then run all or any portion of the run course you choose.

The original time to roll was suggested at 6am...I think we can push that to 6:30 and still be good for the day.

Let's get a head count.
