WASHINGTON -- While his boss, President Obama, faces a tough reelection run, Treasury Secretary Timothy F. Geithner tackled his own race last weekend -- and grabbed a top-10 finish in his age category.
Geithner, 51, competed in the Nation's Triathlon Sunday in Washington, D.C., a fundraiser for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Geithner finished ninth among men 50 to 54 years old with a time of 2:33:07, according to the race website.
Billed as Washington's premier triathlon, the race involves a 1.5-mile swim in the Potomac River, a 40-mile bike ride and a 10-kilometer run.
Geithner completed the swim in 29:10, the bike ride in 1:13:52, and the 10K in 45:51, according to the official results on the event's website.
