Necktie Transition = Biathlon?

Kicking it off the starting line.

Tackled the Pacers Dash4Dad four-miler on Father's Day. Was a humid morning over a hilly course, but there was a new wrinkle...at the one mile marker you could knot a necktie in a 'tie transition' area. It was a new experience on race day, and a tie flapping in the wind (around my neck) was kinda annoying for the final three miles, but it was all for a great cause and it was a great way to start the day.

Bonus points for the race organizers giving everyone a free beer or a free Bloody Mary (win!) at the finish.

This is much harder to do after running a mile.
