Fearsome Tri Results and Some Updates

In this edition:

Fearsome Triathlon

It was a Labor-ful Holiday yesterday for 16 athletes who completed the 3rd Annual Fearsome Triathlon.  The last minute change of having to ride a mountain bike for the whole event was handled bravely by all participants.

The event consisted of a ride up Kings Mountain then a screaming descent down Purissima Trail, followed by a beautifully flat run to the ocean and back.  The most challenging part was the climb back up  Purissima Trail, followed by a welcomed descent down Kings and back to the pool for a 2000 yard swim broken up by pushups.  This 5-7 hour bash was enjoyed by:
1. Lennard Hachmann
2. Eric Pacenta
3. Mimi Winsberg
4. Jan Jindra
5. Dario Benavides
6. Joe Shiffler
7. Mike Osmond
8. Bob Carlin
9. Doug Fuji
10. Tracey Fujieda
11. Joel Phillips

Ironman Hopefuls

There are a few people on our team that are holding out hopes of gathering enough people together to form a group that trains together for an Ironman next year.

It looks like the options are Arizona in the late spring or Wisconsin in the late summer.

I am willing to put together a program and training sessions for either and both races have their positives and negatives.

Respond to me if you have interest or have already registered. (His contact information can be found on the roster page).
