    First time Swimming at Santa Fe Dam , CAL TRI EVENTS LA race used to be called TRICK Or TRI. And it also a new incarnation of the IronBruin. Since it serves at the UCLA home race. The lake water is clean , unlike ocean swims it is flat calm , no current or surf or undertow to negotiate like in ocean swims. The Race Director Thom had all the swimmers start every 5 seconds with self seeding . This spaced out the athletes right away and is the best way to ensure a safe swim. There was no contact with other swimmers on the course . I felt really safe with dozen of lifeguards looking after us. The race is now in October so the water temperature is comfortable. The transition and bike course was well marked with a completely closed course and no intersections to negotiate. No Cars = much safer for bikes.
    The course is pancake flat so i got her done likety split and had fresh legs for the run which for the sprint was 1 lap around the lake. Plenty of well stocked aid stations . 1 every mile. Ran a good pace and Finished without any older folks passing me . Stayed after and mingled with the friendly Cal Tri volunteers and watched other finishers . Checking Results i found out i had placed 1st in my AG !! I usually run clydesdale since i am linebacker sized but that was not an option . Great fun sharing a race with the very enthousiastic collegiates. Can’t wait to have another go and knocking out some minutes off my time.
