Quick synopsis

  • The water was calm until the 1 mile into the swim, the last .2 miles it was a battle under the bridge. 
  • The bike course, there were so many patches and holes that it seemed like an obstacle course. 
  • The run, hot as hades!
  • I am very proud of all of the athletes who finished.

Roberto’s update: 

Roberto had a dizzy spell in which led him fall on the back when entering transition. His fall led to a concussion and as the fall was in the Zygomatic Bone led to short term memory loss. They also ran some lab work and found a heart condition and didn’t allow him to leave the hospital. He was left under observation. His wife arrived today as he can’t fly home until clearance. Please send prayers towards him and his family. I will keep you all posted.
