Takes a Licking...

Young man, there's no need to feel down.
I said, young man, pick yourself off the ground.
I said, young man, 'cause you're in a new town.
There's no need to be unhappy.

Young man, there's a place you can go.
I said, young man, when you're short on your dough.
You can stay there, and I'm sure you will find
Many ways to have a good time.

"YMCA" by the Village People

For the past 10 years, the Roanoke Valley YMCA has held a fund raiser that brings triathletes from all over the state (and some from other states, of course). The Big Lick Triathlon was a great event and very well put together. Smith Mountain Lake is a beautiful setting and the recent rain made the scenery green and lush.My race was fairly standard, with a little run drama due to my unhappy IT band. Using kinesio tape helped for most of the race, but the rain during the bike ride made the tape fail during the run. Oh well, it was good while it lasted, and maybe I can find a better way to adhere it to my skin. Superglue?In her final race of the season, Julie tore it up and came in 3rd in her division. Great job, Julie!
