For Donnie Halls 50'th Birthday, he decided what better present to give to himself than fitness? And what better way to celebrate fitness than a Half Ironman? AND what better 70.3 to do than one that happens to fall exactly on his birthday! So he signed up for Timberman 70.3 (that's one of the "more to come" triathlons). Just to be sure he got the flow of Swim, Bike, Run, he hired Peaks Coach Karen Mackin and signed up for a sprint tri (the Ridgfield Sprint Triathlon). Last Sunday, June 1st, 2014, Donnie donned his wetsuit and headed out into the crazy mayhem of the of the swim start of the triathlon. He learned that a lot of triathletes don't know how to swim straight and that sometimes it's a little trickier getting off a wetsuit in a race situation than in training! All in all he had a great time and finished in a respectable 15th place in his division (pretty good for a first timer!). Congratulations Donnie!
