Got up at 0430 without an alarm... made oatmeal.. showered and shaved... dressed for the race. I had a cup of joe before we departed... let my son eat the oatmeal as my stomach was cranking from the mexican food from the night before.
Event warmup:

Sat in my truck eating a Peanut Butter Crunch Clif bar and drank a bottle of water while we watched the driving rains come down around us!

Event comments:

They did a great job taking care of the kids that did the Kids Duathlon... which my son won overall male... and an iPod Touch! Results were not available because the timing devices were taken out by the driving rain. All information came from my Garmin 405 and bike computer!
