A success! Phew! It was a great day. We had 3 Ironman Champions (2 being my very own hot shot team mates) Dede Griesbauer and Karen Smyers along with Tony Delogne and US olympic bound, Jarrod Shoemaker participating Saturday. Kudo's to Cort Gothboy Cramer for smokin' the entire field. So you can't swim for shit, but you are the WATTAGE KING!!!!!!
As for me, I faired pretty well. Yeepee for cyclocross! I have to say, my fitness from 11 races this fall along with a solid tri season certainly contributed to my fitness Saturday.
