Well, we did it! The Rice Tri Team made multiple apperances at the Lonestar Triathlon Festival the weekend of April 3-4.
Alicia Allen, Tori Gascoyne, and Amanda Reineck competed in the sprint distance triathlon, which was Saturday, April 4. This was a .3 mile swim, 12.5 mile bike, and 3.1 mile run.
Sunday hosted the quarter and half-ironman distanced triathlons. Georgia Lagoudas and I competed in the quarter distance, which was a .6 mile swim, 28 mile bike, and 6.5 mile run. With a 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike and 13.1 mile run, David Kao completed the half-iron distance.
