I've spent the last several weeks outlining (in far too much detail), each leg of the trip. But the anticipation has kept a skip in my step, even if there's a great chance that all my plans will be rained out and we'll spend a better portion of our time in pubs, tapping our toes to celtic music.

The Return of The Wildflower Experience!

If you've been in the tri world awhile, you've heard of the Wildflower Long Course (and Olympic). This is an iconic event that's been raced for decades in the California Mountains, just north of Paso Robles. And I do mean mountains. This 1/2 iron-distance challenge is not for the faint of heart- with 6% grades on the bike ride and 40 mph decents. (I actually had to ride my brakes last time to keep from cresting over 30 mph without pedaling. I mean, I did want to live.) Wildflower is also called the Woodstock of Triathlons for...reasons. Listen here to an interview with Bob Babbit about the challenges and efforts being battled to bring this race back. 

That's a Wrap!
