Rollerski from the bridge on North Craftsbury Road to Mill Village, run back to the center, and then row to the narrows and back. That was course for this year's Roll Run Row triathlon between the Craftsbury GRP skiers and rowers. A lot of smack talk happened leading up to the event and the triathlon was mentioned in nearly every mealtime conversation. But I think all the hype was worth it. I had a few close calls including a fall on the dock and a near swim after some no hands rowing but in the end my biggest trouble was debilitating forearm cramps during the second half of the row. Check out this video for footage from the racing action.
