The Most Historic Thing About The Historic McKinney Kiwanis Triathlon...was the weather. As the swim was getting underway at a little after 7:30 am this morning, a storm of near epic proportions blew in - according to the race volunteers the winds were 50 mph. Heavy rain, thunder, lightning and high winds postponed the race after the first 60 or so triathletes started on the swim, and many of those on the course reported short bursts of hail. Fifteen or twenty minutes later we got started again, but the winds were still strong - slowing up both the bike and the run. Ultimately, the late starters were prevented from getting to run at all, as a new storm cell was blowing through the area.
Nevertheless, I finished upright and with no damage to my bike or my body, only my run and bike splits, which weren't as fast as I'd hoped.
Oh well, we're still doing good things raising money for the NOCC and this week actually got our first story published in the print media - you can see it HERE
