Here is a brief race report from the inaugural 2010 Tri to Beat Cancer in Athens, Georgia. This was my first triathlon in about 20 years. The race is a sprint triathlon with a 400 meter swim, 16 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run.
My wife went with me to the race. We had about 70 miles to drive so we left our house at about 4:30 AM. The race didn’t start until 7:00 AM. It was still dark when we arrived at Sandy Creek Park with the first few participants. I’m sure many of the volunteers had been there long before us.
