Comments:

The total distance was close to 33 miles and it was the rockiest race I have ever done. I also think this was the hardest 50K I've ever done partly because of the overall elevation gain but mostly because of the significant amount of technical trail. The finishers medal is the coolest one I have ever received and so in that respect it was worth the run but I am seriously bring out on super rocky desert races. I really need to stop doing them.

Rocks can lead a war of attrition on your ankles ...it is not the first or even the tenth that gets you but the most unlikely one that will get you cursing while you try to limp it off.

Congrats on finishing a challenging race.

If you are a person who feels safer on the trails rather than the road, but you still want to race, this article will help you better train.

I read somewhere about "bar ends" to put on your handle bars, do you recommend them? Is this similar to adding clip on aero bars?

The XTERRA off-road triathlons consist of a lake swim, a mountain bike trail ride, and a trail run. I decided to try the AZ Xtreme Desert XTERRA Tri as my 1st off-road triathlon, and my 3rd tri ever.

Well I said that I was not going to do it this season, but I cracked. I broke down and bought a new bike. I went out and bought a shiny new Cannondale road bike.

So after about 10,000 emails, dozens of phone calls, and one pre-race pasta dinner, the 1st meeting of the Steve's in a triathlon finally arrived.
