Anyone want to swim 300m on Saturday?

Jane sparked the idea of entering into the 2nd Annual Tri-the-Illini Triathlon this Saturday, April 24, 2010 at 8:00am here in town. It is a relay race where Jane would run 3.1 miles, I would bike 11 miles, and someone would swim 300m (not necessarily in that order) to win us the gold medal. Would anyone want to sign up for the swimming leg of the race? It should be loads of fun!

If anyone is interested in volunteering for the race this weekend, please let me know. I'm in charge of coordinating everything at the pool, but could also give you a job on the bike or run course. Susy and Laura helped last year and were great! If you don't mind waking up early on Saturday, you can score a free t-shirt and help make the race awesome for all of the participants. John Campbell did the race last year and had a blast. If you'd like to do it, you need to act quickly... I believe registration closes tomorrow night. Hope the planners can find a swimmer. A few of the planners from Champaign did a relay last year and also had an awesome time... maybe you guys can talk some trash before the race and put a friendly wager on it??

Just checked... online registration is open until noon on Thursday. Hope you two can find a third!

Thanks for the info, Brad! We haven't come across anyone to swim yet, but hopefully someone will turn up before tomorrow at noon. Good luck if you are participating!
