Why aquabike you ask? Well, if you enjoy triathlon and least enjoy running then this race is for you. For me, the Bluff Creek Aquabike helped to serve as a good checkpoint in my Des Moines Triathlon training—only seven more weeks to go. (Everyone should sign up for this inaugural event to show support). I've been lollygagging in preparations for the Labor Day weekend race, and I wanted to get a wake-up call. The aquabike was perfect because I just did the Dam2Dam half marathon and felt good about my run.
