My dabble into the world of long course triathlon had some mixed results. Much like my short course races, I found I can swim and ride at the level of race winners, even to the point where I was in a podium position at Mile 8 of the run. But, the run itself is still presenting challenges. Couple that with cramping and, likely, too few calories and you can imagine that I took a long ride on the Struggle Bus to the finish line for 7th Place.
Below are some bigger triathlon media I was mentioned in post race as well as some photos taken by my girlfriend and her father at the race.
