Rahm Beats Last Year's Triathlon Time



    Mayor Rahm Emanuel can pat himself on the back for a run well done.

    The mayor again competed in the Sprint Distance Triathlon, a race that's about half the distance of the main event, and beat his time from last year.

    Emanuel finished three minutes faster with a time of one hour, 33 minutes and 46 seconds, placing 27th out of 124 competitors in his age group.

    Emanuel has long been an avid swimmer and biker. He told CNN's Wolf Blitzer last year he works out seven days a week, swimming one mile three days a week and riding a bike 25 miles each Saturday.

    Running is said to be his weakness, though. Earlier last summer he said he hit the sidewalk wrong while running and injured his ankle.
