This triathlon is part of the 2-day Lake Logan Multi-Sports Festival. This year it included the 2009 USAT Aquathlon National Championships where Anne Lundblad (pictured) took on a new challenge. A 1500 meter swim followed by a 5k road race. Anne was 47th out of the water (30:16 for 1500m), but made up lots of ground with the fastest women's run time of the day (18:46). Anne took 3rd AG in her first Aquathlon. Anne wore the F-lite 230's in the 5k and the Sleeveless Comp 1 Wetsuit from 2XU for the swim. Great job everyone!
