The Pacific Crest Triathlon weekend has been a summer highlight going on several years for Hortense and I. It’s a beautiful area of wilderness with a great landscape for exploring. I raced the Half on Sat and Hortense raced the Olympic on Sunday. We both placed 3rd overall!
Just 3 weeks removed from the IM Boise 70.3 I was able to gain some remarkable fitness albeit not enough time to shake off some fatigue from the bump. The highlight for me was getting tough on the run. After Matt Lieto broke me early on the bike I turned things around and ran amazingly well. 11 minutes faster than I ran at Boise!
This video needs some music but it has some clips of the swim, bike and run beauty of this event:
