    In the question about doing a Sprint Tri during vacation: was catching up while returning from vacation. I did do a sprint tri, but did it as a relay with my 14 y/o son. Took the competitiveness out of my mind and did it for fun… The whole family (11 of us) were there cheering my son and I on. Was fun and went to breakfast afterwards!
