We don't think we could eat at another BBQ place again that is how good it was!!

So we searched all over, and once we found it, we ...

And I was feeling pretty darn good. Transition from bike to run was much more efficient. Probably because I forgot one of the four things I needed: my visor. About a kilometre into the run, I was hurting. I was hurting real bad. And yes, only a kilometre in. My left shoulder was in agony. I had ...
