Federal Escape Triathlon

I got to the airport at SJC the day before without an allen wrench and wasn't able to take apart my bicycle! So I flew up that night san bike and borrowed an old clunker bike to do the race.

The swim start was delayed to allow the sprint triathletes to go first - a last minute change. The lake was smooth and warm, ideal swimming conditions. I got out of the water in just under nine minutes for the quarter mile. Not great - but not bad for me. I felt good on the gently rolling hills of the bike course. After a sub one minute T2, I ran a 22:10 5K - pretty slow I guess. I finished in 1:09:55, good for fifth.
