Sorry this is late (3.5 weeks isn't that late is it?), but here is a quick recap and some pictures from PDR! About 20 of us traveled down to LA for PDR. We stayed at Jeremy's house in Santa Monica (a huge thank you to them for hosting us!). Once we got to LA, we picked up our packets and then went to Jeremy's house to do our pre-race shakeout before dinner. After a scrumptious dinner at Panera Bread, it was bedtime to make sure we were all well rested for our races the next morning.
The race went extremely well! Gordon won the men's collegiate and men's overall divisions in the sprint distance race, Logan took the woman's collegiate division and 3rd woman overall in the sprint with Sarah in 3rd for woman's collegiate as well. Despite flatting with a mile to go of the bike, Bree pushed on to finish her first Olympic distance race and won her age group! Our relays were also well represented on the podium with 1st and 2nd in the mixed division for the sprint and 1st in the mixed division for the Olympic. Other highlights include several people completing their first triathlon, including Nick who did the whole thing in a speedo, Matt who narrowly missed the men's collegiate podium with a 4th place in the division and 6th place overall, and Coach Matt's first race with the team! All in all, it was a very successful race and we can't wait for our next race in January!
