Vineman 70.3 Robert Peterson

Start–Guerneville , Ca

Wave 15 start gives you plenty of time to get everything in order as well as see your friends get their race going. As usual the typical items of a Johnson Beach swim were present, a nice walk in the perfectly timed half way point as well as the green slime hitch hiking on your googles. The swim was fun and I didn’t break any records, but given it was my second swim since November……I will take it! ¬†34:43

Ride

The new pavement and repaired road ways were flat out awesome. Having clean fresh asphalt makes for a much more enjoyable ride and really easy to get into a groove. My goal was to get through the ride without a mechanical and a smile on my face…. Done and done!! The volunteers were awesome as well as the law enforcement, made each of the intersections a breeze and for that THANK YOU!! 2:28:26

Run

Always a warm sunny run. This is a rolling hills style of run that I would say is not flat, but not too hilly and similar to any run in the foothills in the Folsom area. Running with the symptoms of too much water, made this a really long run for me. Again, the smorgesbord of items at the aid stations seemingly encouraged my side ache with all of the choices but none the less loved it. Thank you again for all of the great aid stations and assistance out on the course. The out and back portion of the course is where I was able to get a quick high five to Scott Williams and get on with the rest of the run. All and all a great fun race and glad I am healthy and able to be a part of it!! Also, watched Karyn Hoffman finish and got in a good group photo post race with Scott and Karyn. Great job to everyone!! #FolsomBikeTriathlon #Trek 1:38:57
