Then when I was chit chatting with other triathletes someone came up to me and asked if my name was Sarah Karpinski. I said yes, why? Here it was the other Sarah Karpinski!!! There has been two of us racing the same races for years. We don't have a very common name so it's pretty weird. We both live in DC and both are the same age so it always makes finding your race results hard. Plus we usually finish with-in a minute or two of each other! I was so excited to finally meet her and hopefully make a new friend.

Then it was off to the Bike Rack on Q to pick a spare tube and CO2 to replace the ones I used when I got my flat last week. After that we rode over to Pacers on P so I could buy a race belt. $20 dollars is such a rip for this, but I bought it anyhow.
Then we basically parked ourselves on P street to watch the Capital Pride Parade. It was a good time with lots of music, floats, and friends.
Sunday, I met up with Victoria and Jessica for the Spash N' Dash (300 meter swim, 5k run). It was a really fun race minus all the hills on the 5k! And they weren't little hills, they were the sucky big ass ones! I will write up my offical race report tomorrow, but I finished in 2nd place! This never happens! Little races are the best :) It was just a fun race!

Overall my weekend was great! How was yours ?
