We were originally scheduled to do this race last year, December 2017. We were standing on the beach, ready to go, when they announced it was now a duathlon due to weather concerns. We got our shoes and socks on, and were ready for the run. Then they announced the entire event was completely canceled. Very disappointing, but understand the safety reasons for doing so. We are going to try it again this year.

About Us

This site is a collection of race reviews, ride reports, and musings on life. It focuses on my love of the outdoors, primarily triathlon, cycling, and running, with some training, traveling, and race-cations thrown in.  I race year round, and almost every week in the warmer months.

I hope these race reviews and reports serve as a resource to athletes everywhere about which races to add to your bucket list and which ones to just plain avoid altogether.
