This year's 2012 San Carlos Triathlon was at a new venue with a much more challenging swim. The race took place at the Marina Terra Sports Club in San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico.
Here I am above warming-up for what was to be a very challenging swim. the swim was about 750 meters but felt more like 1500 meters due to currents and difficulty sighting in the open ocean.
Overall, this race was a lot of fun. I was able to squeeze out a second place finish in my age group (mainly due to a decent bike split) but I haven't really been worrying too much about placing these days.
I have decided to stick mainly with the shorter Sprint and Olympic distance races while competing in local time trials on the bike. I delved into a 12 hour mountain bike event this past May and have lately been focusing on building my strength and muscle tone back-up again after years of racing competitively at the 70.3 distance.
