Lifetime Tri puts on a great triathlon.
On Saturday the pros gave a talk and 3 Race Tips from Andy Potts were used during the race:
- Swim: Be sure the tips of your fingers hit the water first
- Bike: Remember high cadence
- Run: Stand tall
Once I was out of the water the bike was fast. It has been many years since I’ve race an Olympic distance triathlon and I biked this course faster than on any recent training rides – so fun!!! This is what I was thinking as I was biking:
I am a triathlete. I get so much joy from swimming biking and running. Thank you to all my friends and family who travel, train and race with me ! What a great life.
The run was by the ocean and it was an AWESOME course! Some of the waves were crashing over the rocks and I had to avoid the water. Aid stations were great. The entire day was overcast and the temperature was perfect for racing.
A perfect race day and I love Oceanside, California. I’ll be back for this race. For. Sure.
