Just thought I'd let you guys know about a weekend that's coming up in Eureka Springs, one of my favorite small towns in Arkansas. There are 4 events for the August weekend: The bike race 100 miles http://eurekasportsfestival.com/bikerace.htm ; The triathlon and it's 300 yard swim, 7 mile bike, 2 mile run: http://eurekasportsfestival.com/triathlon.htm ; For the 20, 58 and 100 mile bike rides: http://eurekasportsfestival.com/bikeinfo.htm ; And for the 10K, 5K and 1 mile fun run: http://eurekasportsfestival.com/run.htm ; There's a medal if you do the tri, 100 mile and 10K.
It's fun to share events that are going on in the state. I'm not sure that we'll do this but I did find it interesting that the minimum age for the 20 mile bike ride is 6 years old, I instantly thought of Whit. And by the way, Jackie and I have entered the Big Dam Bridge 50 mile bike ride already! There's talk of making the 50 less hilly and more like 50 miles and not the 58 miles my odometer said I went that painful Saturday! -Keeli
