Xterra: 3rd Place Overall

So i participated in an Xterra triathlon race today. If you’re not familiar with Xtaerras, they are basically triathlon races except instead of riding a road bike and running on the road, you ride a mountain bike and run on trails. For more info, visit http://www.xterraplnet.com

Anyhow, there were two races today: Sport (commonly referred to as a Sprint) and Open. The only difference between the two is the Open is roughly twice the distance of a Sport.

Today’s course was gruelling. The entire thing was extremely rocky and muddy. These also weren’t mountain bike trails. The trails are normally only used by horses. For the run, there were several times the runners had to crawl under huge trees that were laying across the path.

All in all, it was fun, but tough race.
