Another beautiful day in St. George. I couldn't have asked for better weather, the water was a warm 77 degrees, nearly too warm for my wetsuit. I noticed many others had decided to leave theirs at home. I felt better in this swim than ever and managed to maintain are fairly consistent pace and line. Though less attended than the SG tri earlier this year it was still a good group of people to race with. The first transition felt slow. Maybe sometime I will try spraying some PAM on my skin so my wetsuit comes off easier, sounds weird but people say it works.
|On the bike, starting the climb. It isn't very long but at 15% grade it is enough to wear anyone down.|
|Finishing strong with my best time yet.|

to the turn around point.
It was a great race, a nice break from the hot summer. It also motivated me to step up training for PumpkinMan next month.
