"Exercising" the Danskin Demon (Part 3 of 3)

5 years ago

This post is the third of a 3 parter about my experience in the Danskin triathlon.  You can read Part 1 here and Part 2 here.

I had now made it two thirds of the way through the race.  Nothing left to do but run away! Patty is a walker and insisted that I go ahead.  We said we would see each other at the finish line and I headed out.  Since running was something I could actually do without needing extra padding:

 
 
or flotation devices,
 
 

 

I was off feeling light on my feet!

 It ended up being more of a slalom activity, really.  If you recall from Part 1, Patty and I were among the very last of the racers in the "buddy wave" (read: "non-competitive just-please-lord-don't-let-me-drown/crash/trip wave").  Turns out this is the group in which the ladies like to walk, en masse, taking up the whole road, chit-chatting.

 

Time was clearly not of the essence.  Race? What race? But, these women were savouring their time together so it's hard to fault them for that :)
