As I mentioned, my hubs and I took a trip up to Rice Lake to our friends’ cottage for the annual Rice Lake Invitational. Basically it’s an excuse to eat lot’s of chips, drink and have fun for the weekend, but in order to partake in the former you have to participate in the try-a-tri at 9:00 am Saturday morning. If you’ve never heard of a try-a tri it’s a mini triathalon that includes a 375 metre swim, a 10km bike and a 2.5km run (sounds easy right?).

Unfortunately we don’t do it naked (as I may have proposed in the photo above) but maybe it’s a thought for next year? Congrats to the winning lady, man and couple! To my despair I did not get my name on the trophy this year, but there is hope for next time.

Happy running, swimming and biking (whew!) and a big thank you to Mike and Val for hosting.

  1. Naked racing certainly ups the ante! We’d have to have a pre-race briefing on lubrication…yikes…

    Great to meet you and hope to see you again soon.

  2. Ya there would be no sharing of bikes if we raced naked!
    And may I say that being timekeeper/babysitter/phototaker is not nearly as much fun!
    Congrats to all the racers and especially to my hubby for keeping the Boorman name alive!
    See you next year – in full racing form!
