  • Fitness Update: Kansas City Corporate Challenge Triathlon

    Yesterday was the Kansas City Corporate Challenge Triathlon. We had a lot of rain the night before, and the night before that. We almost wondered if it might be canceled. But it wasn’t. The day dawned cool and damp. They modified the route. The bicycles went backwards upon their course, and the running was at […]

  • Fitness Update: Triathlon

    Last week was the start of intense heat in our area. Monday’s run — 8 miles — was done early morning at 70 degrees with a 92 percent humidity.

When I was first asked, I didn’t even have an operational bicycle, though I had just ordered one through River Market Cyclery. It was two weeks before and I finally had a bicycle. ┬áBut that turned out […]
