I chose this race for several reasons.
- I can drive to the race - no flying, bike boxing, etc.
- The entire race takes place right next to the ocean!
- The bike is flat - a chance to try to PR the bike split.
- The run is hard and sounds fun - there is a mix of sand throughout the run.
- The race benefits the Naval Special Warfare Family Foundation - it's nice to race for something more than myself.
