Rian Bogle at Arizona2012 Note: for the technically/numerically minded, I’ve placed stats at the end. The narrative was also intended for family and friends and is a bit verbose  Perma-grin. I’m smiling ear to ear this morning as I write this for a host of reasons.

Florida 2012 November 3 Race Day The weather was pretty darn good for a race.  The ocean had some good current and swells that made the swim a few minutes slow but nothing too bad.  The winds on the bike stayed fairly low and at times we had cloud cover for a bit of relief…

Rich Strauss
