Start of Skylands Triathlon

They're off! I started later, in the old geezer group. We had to swim the farthest, since the buoys had blown off shore. This was a sprint triathlon, considered the easiest of triathlon distances (800 m swim, 14.4 mile bicycle, 5 km run). I didn't find it so easy, but I did manage to climb The Hill without having to get off my bike and walk. In this picture, I like the churned up, brown water in back of the swimmers and the blue water in front.
