Mission Bay Tri addendum

For another take on the race, please pay a visit to Zach's new blog.

He's had it up for a while to log his workouts but now he's ready to share with the world.

Zach has been super supportive of me since I started running and is becoming a great cyclist and triathlete. It's going to be cool to follow his training log. Thanks! :)

Nice job with the race. Best to practice without the nose clip and just get used to not using it. There is a reason that you don't see any of the fast triathletes using them.

As for the bike, unfortunately speed has a lot more to do with equipment than anything else. That's just a reality of the sport, unlike running which is more about ability and training. A road bike will certainly make a big difference and a tri-specific bike even more so...if you are willing to make the investment. My suggestion is to look around on eBay for the right bike. There are a ton of people who get in the sport for a short time and then sell their bikes for a fraction of what they paid for it and it is still like new. That's how I got mine.

Thanks for the shout out babe! You did an awesome job this weekend in San Diego. I can't believe you are running 10 mi. tonight, my legs are still a little bit sore from the Tri. :)
