A little later after we had gotten home he was in the bathroom with Clancey trying get him to turn the water on in the bathtub. Well I once again got after hin and told him to stop messing with the tub and leave the bathroom. After he left the bathroom he was standing in the kitchen with his fingers in his mouth feeling a little dejected. He then took his fingers out of his mouth and said "Daddy I wasn't trying to turn the water on and make a bad decision. I was trying to turn the water on to clean the bath because it's really dirty." I think we are going to have our hands full with these two boys ;).

I do have to admit that while walking through the vendor booths I just about bought a aero helmet, figured the wife might get after me if I did ;). Since Trevor bought a new tribike I need every advantage I can get. Maybe I should go rent some zipp wheels for the day. Hmmm.
I always enjoy being at the triathlon venues, I can't figure it out but it just feels good to be here. I suspect it is probably because it reminds of my old track days being at state or nationals. I'm really looking forward to the race start tomorrow at 6 am :).

|From Copper Creek Triathlon|
I just got home from the Copper Creek Triathlon. This was another sprint triathlon with a 750 meter swim, 12 mile bike and 3.1 mile run. Raine also decided to do the race with me which happened to be her first triathlon ever. She said the race went alright with the bike being the worst, but that was probably due to the fact she was riding a mountain bike. Other then that she said she was really dizzy coming out of the water but that is something that pretty much happens to everyone.
For myself the race went better then I expected it would. Midweek I did an open water swim of about a half mile and ended up getting a hamstring cramp so bad I had to limp to my car, I was really worried that it would happen again. Turned out that it didn't happen and the swim went alright. Today was a wave in water start so for the first 200 meters or so it was pretty physical in the water. My bike was alright around 21.5 mph average over a fairly hilly course. I really wanted to do 22 mph but I just couldn't get it done. The run was pretty hard for the first mile, in fact when I got to the first mile marker I was in disbelief I had only been running for a mile. After that I got my breath back I was able to finish strong. I suspect that my run time was probably a bit slower then last week but I'll have to wait for the results since I forgot to start my watch, doh!
I have to commend the race organizers for putting on a well organized race. Last week's Pigman in Palo was a freaking mess. There we tons of cars on the bike course, very few volunteers and a 1 mile stretch of the course the runners, bikers, and cars all had to share the road with no cones to mark it off. This race on the other hand was well organized no cars on the bike or run course, tons of volunteers and great race swag. I will certainly put this on my list of races to do every year.

Update: 2:40 pm 6-7-2009
Looks like Trevor Garson (1:20) ended up getting first place in the Triathlon Challenge followed Mike Powelka(1:21) and then me(1:23). One of the people on my team Andy Tekippe ended up winning a Quintana Roo Tequilo tri-bike as a door prize which is pretty cool. Looks like Andy is going to have to do more triathlons now.
