2007 Triathlon & Race Results

Well....the 2007 Season is over. It was a good year with tough early season events like the Wildflower and Escape from Alcatraz. I completed my longest open water swim ever in the La Jolla Cove Swim Club's 5 mile Tour of the Buoys Swim. I finished the year with the Cancun 70.3 and the Death Valley Century ride.

Wildflower Triathlon 1.5K/40K/10K (5-6-07) 4:12:13

Escpate from Alcatraz Triathlon 1.5mi/18mi/8mi (6-3-07) 3:56:19
What a great event. The swim from Alcatraz was amazing. It's a little crazy jumping of with 2 thousand people into the bay. The course was incredibly Scenic, with a very challenging run, mostly on hill dirt trails, and some on the beach, including the infamous Sand Ladder.

San Diego International Triathlon 1K/30K/10K (6/24/07) 2:33:45

Tour of the Buoys 5mi swim (8/5/07) 2:49:13

Santa Barbara Long Course Triathlon 1mi/34mi/10mi (8/25/07) 4:34:23

Cancun Ironman 70.3 1.2mi/56mi/13.1mi (9/23/07) 6:36:06
Man what a tough race. The course was flat, but the Humidity was crazy high, and we had 3 45 minute bursts of torrential rain during the bike and run that came with gale force winds. It was definitely hurricane season in Cancun. I like this article from about how tough the conditions and weather were.

Fall Death Valley Century 108mi Bike (10/29/07) 7:46:00
Well I came in well short of my goal of 6:30, but it appears only 3 people managed that feat, and my 7:46 was pretty respectable considering we were riding into the wind most of the ride in both directions.
