RSR 37 – Escape From Alcatraz 2011 Race Recap

By Skip

Episode number 37 of my daily triathlon training diary….

What an amazing day and what an amazing race. Anybody who has the opportunity to do this race, you MUST do it. It is going to be tough to beat this one event though I must now hunt out that next perfect race. The weather was kind enough to hold off for the day and we had perfect weather conditions. Calm waters, no breeze, no rain… yeah! This video will break down the race section by section. I have lots of information to tell you about so if you have specific questions, please ask!

If you have any questions, comments or content ideas, please leave a comment below or email me.

Comments


Hey Skip, congrats on the race! I heard your comment about the swim line and then cross-referenced your swim time. 41:50! That means you swam a good line. Trust me, if you had done the “sweep” route, you’d have been 45+ minutes out there. Sorry to hear you overshot the finish line – that’s where you need to keep an eye on the wave organ and the swim finish floats carefully to get a good line in. No matter, even with mildly overshooting the finish, 41:50 is great! You could race it again and again and perhaps not swim it much faster. Congrats on the race!

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
