The other big event recently was racing in the Rio Salado Triathlon this past Saturday, May 5th. I elected to do the sprint distance this time since it’s my first triathlon after ankle surgery.

This past weekend we went to Oceanside, CA to cheer on our friends Dean, Kim, & Rick. They were all racing at the Oceanside Ironman 70.3 which is a half-Ironman triathlon distance. It was our first time experiencing a triathlon race of any distance, and we felt pretty noobish in the beginning trying to figure [...]
