I'm In!

I will be competing in the Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon this June in San Francisco. It will be 1.5 mile swim in the icy bay, an 18 mile hilly bike ride and an 8 mile run over varied terrain including the 400 step "Sand Ladder." This is one of the most famous races in the sport, and one of the most challenging shorter races.

A training partner of mine and I were selected in the lottery used to give eveybody a chance to get in to the race. So it is not like we qualified to do it, but with over a thousand people going in via the lottery, I'll take it. San Francisco, the Escape From Alcatraz, a week away from work, and time to drive the coast after hanging in the city makes me believe this is going to be a nice vacation.
