Triumphant Return to Red Hills Triathlon

More of a complete run down later, but let it be common knowledge that Colin finished 17 minutes faster this year than last year (1:38:06 in 2008), and that the winner finished in 1:09:35. The future is very attainable for Colin. He is already talking about next year and upcoming 70.3 relays and the possibility of an Olympic Distance Tri (.9 mile swim, 25-40 mile ride, 10K run). Yikes!

Final results of the Red Hills Triathlon 2009: 1/3 mile swim 16 mile bike ride 5K (3.1 mile) run
