Eppie's Great Race 2014

Our team, yesterday, competed in the world’s oldest triathlon. It was the 41st running of Eppie’s Great Race held in the Sacramento-Rancho Cordova area. I started the event by running approximately a 10K (less than an hour) along the American River, finishing at Sacramento State area. Then I met Tom Christofk and passed him the timing chip. He biked approximately a 20 K distance in less than 45 minutes. There, he handed the timing chip to Dennis Scott, who kayaked approximately 10K to the finish in less than an hour.
Dennis took the place of Tony Brickel who was home nursing his wife, Debbie from her horse mishap. For Tom and I, this was our first Eppie’s. For Dennis, this was his 35th or 36th Eppie’s. Our team did well in the 60 age division. We were all pleased. For me, running along the American River was a welcome change from trail running. I must admit that it is so much easier. Of course, running a short distance is another difference along with not worrying about tripping on rocks or roots.
For more about Tom, I refer you to our television interview: It Has Nothing to Do with Age or Gender:    Further, Dennis has an interesting story as well and you can watch his TV interview: .
In any event, keep moving, smiling, laughing, bonding, loving and appreciating.

It was helpful to have my wife Linda, and Tom’s wife, Laura, as crew. Thank you, dears.
