Harbor Lights is a 5-week race series. It raises money for a local high school's cross country team, and it brings out lots of families. They have a Swim/Run component (1/2 mile swim + 5K), a 5K run only, and a kids 1K. Every week for 5 weeks. Live music, food, raffles. What more could you want for a Thursday night :)
The hubs is doing the swim/run race since he is getting ready for his second sprint distance triathlon at the end of the month! A funny thing happened last week. At check-in the hubs reads a sign that says "1/2 mile swim" and starts saying, "Half mile swim!?! Half mile swim?!?" I'm like, "Yeah. What's the big deal?" (FYI, I am the one who signed him up for this). Apparently the sprint triathlon distance is 1/4 mile swim and that's the distance he has been focusing one. Oops!
|Off the go!|
As you can see, I don't know much about triathlons or swimming for that matter...we are learning these things as we go. He ALMOST didn't do it last week, but at the last minute he decided to go for it...and today he did WAY better (still waiting on the official time).
Next Thursday we are at it again!
This Saturday I am running my first 10k race! Wish me luck.
