I spent last night racing against some of the world's best cyclists as they completed stage five of the Amgen Tour of California. And while I had a much easier (and shorter) ride than they faced, the sprinters still KILLED me at the end of the race.
Saturday posed quite a quandary when it came to training with the tri club kids. Since the Pol clan traveled Friday to camp with others at our churches tree farm, I decided to drive a second (and more fuel efficient) vehicle to drive back to town Saturday morning. The trip back to the camp site would be by Pol-R Express.
When last we saw our intrepid triathlete... Wait, sorry, I was just channelling another blogger.
Now, before we continue, I want to point out that this picture on the left was taken right near the end of the bike course. That was the other section that was sort of flat. Not really flat, as you will note that I AM, in fact, climbing. But this was only a little climb.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
