Final prep race for IM California in October
LOVED this race!! Ironman does a great job with this venue. A great ocean swim, the bike is rolling, but not difficult, has a tailwind on the way back, and the run is sneaky tough. Definitely do some hill work for the run, if you're considering this race. They say it's 'Flat', but it's far from that, starting at about mile 5. The trail portion of the run is awesome, along the bluffs above the ocean. This was my last prep race for IM California next month, and was very happy with the outcome, and fitness levels. If you go, check out the Beach Street Inn & Suites. It's a 5 minute walk to transition, and the same to the swim start. It's across the street from the beach, and some rooms have ocean views. Best part.... It has a hot tub in the pool area!!
