Escape from Alcatraz 2017

Hey Folks…  Yet another race has been added to the calendar.  The Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon will take place on June 11th. I am going to utilize a 16-week training plan to prepare for the race, so that plan will officially start on February 20th, but I will be very focused on training before then.

The race is an iconic one – a bucket-list race for many (myself included) that are passionate about triathlon.  In the words of the race organizers, “The 2017 Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon features a 1.5-mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the shores of the St. Francis Yacht Club, a grueling 18-mile bike ride, and a demanding 8-mile run through the trails of the Golden Gate Recreational Area. Set against the natural beauty of San Francisco, this thrilling triathlon is a virtual postcard of the City by the Bay.”  Should be awesome!

I have not remained in the best shape since racing last year.  My recurring back issues, combined with a stellar lack of motivation, set me back quite a ways.  I’m back in the saddle, though, and raring to go.

I’ll post a few blogs between now and race day, and just like all past races, I’ll post a race report afterwards.

It feels good to be back in touch.  Stay tuned for more, and until then, TRAIN ON!!!
