Early Season Racing: Galveston 70.3 and Peru 70.3

Last month, I started off the season with two races: Galveston 70.3 and Peru 70.3; finishing 11th and 8th respectively. Earlier this week, I sat down with Rob Mohr and we discussed the two races in further details via video skype. In this video, or audio file, you can hear more about how I approached the races, how they played out and how it all ties into the season as a whole.
