March Triathlon Series 2017


Had a bit of fun today at March Triathlon Series at Lake Lopez! Team E3 kicked butt today in California! MTS is an annual Cal Poly Triathlon Team produced race, and it's a race many alumni flock back to San Luis Obispo to race or volunteer! Since the opening of the new year, I got sick for several months, and traveled quite a bit for work which derailed my triathlon training, so I decided to race the Sprint distance today instead of the Olympic. Despite the lack of proper training, I'm happy with how I did. Actually, I surprised myself... ha! Saw a lot of young kids racing out on the course today! So awesome to see them competing and ENJOYING it at such a young age. I wish them the best with their triathlon career. Had an incredible time seeing familiar faces volunteering throughout the race course and racing! All smiles today. Enjoy some of the images I snapped before, during and after the race.
