The racing season is winding down, save for CX and a few long-distance triathlons, and the crispness of fall is in the air. It must be time for Tri the Illini, a race noted for its proximity and accessibility to beginner and elite triathletes alike.

Suzanne and Scott headed to suburban Grand Rapids for the Michigan Titanium full aquabike race. Aquabike = triathlon - run = swim, bike, done! Full means 2.4 mile swim and 112 mile bike: Ironman without the pesky marathon at the end.

​Martin’s short version: Sean did a half iron in Springfield and I did a sprint (my excuse: my right foot still hurts). Sean set a new PR at 5:08, and I came in 1st in age group, 8/157 overall. A funny thing happened on the way to the forum, though…
