Day 1 Race report from Scotty

Up at 5am after not really sleeping much, a Coconut Cashew Chocolate Chip Hammer Bar (the BEST pre race food).  We were at the pier nice and early, and I felt really calm (wow!).  We had so many great visits with every athlete we met and the usual pre race excitement.  I set everything up…

Day One Done!

Day one done and dusted! Around 10:08 approx.

Update and some photos

Swim start and exit. The swim was tough for everyone, but Scott came out of the water in high spirits and feeling strong, and no sickness. And, I did mention to Lyle that the chickens at the road side had no puke to eat! Consistent and strong.  Awesome crew members  Scott has been going strong…

Kicking it on the bike

The first big hill is up, and over. Heading down shortly after, where the crew will meet him.
