We spent the past week in Delaware visiting Burke's brother, Jess, and his family. Among the many fun things we did, we went to Julie's Race, an aquathlon that Jess was the race director for.
What's an aquathlon you ask? It is like a triathlon only the pattern is a swim-run-swim sequence. The race is named after Burke's late sister, Julie, who drowned when she was three.
Come day of the race, Jess asked us to participate as a relay team in honor of Julie. So with no training or prep, Burke and I did an aquathlon together last Friday. I swam 1/4 mile, then Burke ran a 5K, and I finished off with another 1/8 mile swim. Our relay team came in third.
