Race Report:

I was able to do better than last year by 7 minutes. Everything felt right and fun. The guy that won my age group won it last year also. He improved by 10 minutes! He was the nicest guy, Greg Nelson. Good news is that I am aging up next year, and he is not. There should be a student discount and a AARP rate for triathlons!
One of the best parts of the race was to see Bob Bartolo finishing and winning 1st place in age group. My buddy Carlos did great too!
The other best thing for me was finally figuring out my hydration so I don't have to go during the race. I guess only triathletes understand. I hear a good quote; you know you are a triathlete when the people at your job don't say "have a good weekend" but say "good luck".
Great race, great club!
