Birthday 400’s

A few of our triathlon friends have birthday workout traditions. They usually start at age 40. There is Chris’s annual Stealthman competition that involves swimming, biking, running and eating lots of donuts.  Yesterday was Eduard’s 3rd annual “birthday 400’s” celebration. This year he is 42, so we ran 42 times 1/4 mile (400m) on the track.

Now you’d think there would only be a few crazy people out there willing to join you for that kind of “celebration”. Below are 10 people who knew what they were getting into and all seem to be smiling prior to the start.

Here is a nice shot from the bleachers of the whole group coming around the track with Fred and Eduard leading the way.  Thanks to Conrad for taking such great pictures. See everyone next year for 43!
