      Honestly I'd have a tough time paying more then $25 for a triathlon that distance. Good luck and I hope it goes better then the last one for you.

            I did it!  I'll provide a race report later.  

            12:31.17

            Basically, though, miles 8 - 16 were tough.  My back started to hurt, and I walked about 90% of the 2nd loop (it was also pretty hot at that time).

             

            Thanks y'all.

            2019 Goals:

            #1: Do what I can do (250+ training days, 300+ aerobic hours).

            #2: Race (Hurt the Dirt 1/2 marathon - 4/27, Grand Rapids Tri 70.3 - 6/9, MSU Gran Fondo - 6/22, ODRAM - 8/10, Michigan Titanium 70.3 - 8/18, Grand Rapids Marathon - 10/20)

             


            Puttin' on the foil

              Well done, Sir!

              Don't be obsessed with your desires Danny. The Zen philosopher Basha once wrote, 'A flute with no holes, is not a flute. A donut with no hole, is a Danish.'

                Nice job, Iron Brian.

                      hey guys I need a little bit of help deciding on an indoor bike trainer.  I'm pretty new into cycling but i've really started to love it, which is why I think I need an indoor bike trainer now, I'm addicted!!  I've been looking around and I need some suggestions, I found this site http://www.squidoo.com/best-indoor-bike-trainer-stands-mats-risers and I really like the Forza F-2 Model and I was curious if any of you guys have had experience with that model or forza and if it's a pretty reliable brand.  any help would be great, thanks guys.

                        I use the CycleOps Fluid2 and has worked well. The Fluid1 model had a problem with oil leaks.

                          FWIW, my Fluid2 also had an oil leak, but CycleOps warranteed it and sent me a new unit with little to no questions asked.

                           

                          brandthin, many sources I've checked suggest the fluid type trainers (CycleOps Fluid2, Kurt Kenetic Road Machine, etc.) are the way to go for an indoor cycling trainer. Most agree you get the closest feel to being on the road with a fluid since the resistance is progressive and not constant like a magenetic. The faster you pedal and change gears, the higher the resistance. I personally have both types and never use the magnetic trainer anymore.

                            Fluid.  Currently have a Kurt Kenetic Road Machine and it is great compared to the magnetic or the rim drive.
