Two Early Pics of Carpinteria Triathlon


Tomorrow at 8:13am, my wave leaves Carpinteria State Beach for a 500 meter swim, then a 9 mile bike and then a 5k run.  The Carpinteria Triathlon short course will be my third triathlon since I began the journey from office potato to triathlete.   Here are some pics of the transition area from earlier today:

I can’t believe how long the transition area is.  With 900 participants and a narrow parking lot, the length really should be expected.  It just means that I have to run with the bike the full length of the park before I can mount and go.

My transition area will be located near the east end, just near the “run out” exit and four rows down from the “swim in” entrance.  The beach run is not as long as it was at Ventura, but comparable to Santa Barbara.

Check back for more…  I will posting my results tomorrow!
