Race Season is Here!
 
I can't believe it is already that time of year again, the race season is here!  After a little R&R this winter I started the year with an unbelievable eight week training camp in Noosa, Australia. The excitement of our wedding caused Rinny and I to miss training in Noosa last year so we were happy to get back this winter for some hot and humid training!  We call Noosa "Boulder by the Sea", because like Boulder it has great training, a great community, great coffee and it's home to a bunch triathletes! The warm weather seemed to make the fitness come back quicker and also gave me the chance to do an early season race in Mooloolaba.

While I came down with the flu at the start of race week, I was able to battle the sickness and a talented field to take home the win at the Mooloolaba 5i50 Triathlon. I exited the water second and came off the bike at the front with a group of six. Nuru Somi, a young athlete making the switch from ITU racing set the pace early on the run. Luckily with some strength and experience I was able to reel him in around 8km. We ran together the final stretch and after making a few moves, an attack about 400 meters from the finish gave me the small gap I needed for the win.  

With the cobwebs blown out in Mooloolaba, I'm excited to tackle my first 70.3 this year in Braslia. The road to Kona is well underway now and I appreciate having everyone along for the ride!

 

Stay humble, stay hungry!
