Milton Triathlon tomorrow!

Finally race season is here! After a long hard winter and very wet spring nice weather is finally peaking in on us and tomorrow, June 5th, is looking to be a sunny, warm day for racing! This will be the first time I have raced at Milton since 2005. 2005 the water was very cold and I never thought I would do this race again. Also doing the race with me from the KW Fighting Koalas is Stephen D. and Laura S. Both Stephen and Laura have looked very good in training so I am excited to race and see how they make out! I will post tomorrow after the race with an update and results!
Cheers and happy racing for 2011!
