San Jose Mountain Bike Triathlon

I had the crazy idea of doing this mountain bike tri on a road bike. Most of the course is not very technical at all so this would seem workable. It turned out to not provide much of an advantage at all.

I started out trying to go much faster on the swim, but ended up blowing up at the start and having to take a break to catch my wind. I got out of the water in 11:16. I had a 43:38 bike split, basically identical to my 43:52 split of the year before. My run was 21:32 compared with 23:24. My overall time was 1:16:27 compared with 1:17:51 from last year.

Fremond Bank Spirit Run 5K - Pleasanton

A run through the streets of downtown Pleasanton with a little bit of flat trail running thrown in. Finished in 20:09, not even close to placing. Probably not worth the drive next year.
