The toughest race in Santa Barbara was made even more difficult by a horrendous current. The swimmers battled all morning and finished a good 30 to 40 minutes slower than their usual times. Here is my short video I shot of the event.
I started this blog as a training log during my preparation for Ironman Canada in 2006. Check out my 2006 entries if you want to know what kind of training it takes me to gear up for an Ironman race. I swim, bike, run, race triathlons, dabble in mountain bike races, and even an occasional adventure race. I just got myself a standup paddleboard so look for me on the water. I enjoy the challenge of racing but most of all I love the slow burn of a long day training.
