So I did it. I registered for the Malibu Olympic triathlon. They’ve not posted the course yet, but I’m assuming it’s just the like the sprint….just further.

That stretch of PCH is one of my favorite rides — nice wide bike lanes, not a lot of traffic, rolling hills, and peeks of the ocean as you ride.

The run course — ugh, not so fun for me, just flat & mostly on the sidewalk adjacent to the beach, and a there-and-back, but hey, if I didn’t get to run by the beach regularly it’d be nice. No shade, though.

The water at Zuma is generally nice & clean & clear that time of the year (all the better to see the men in gray — there was that one shark that said hi to the paddleboarders last summer).

I have some old training plans to adapt for this summer — one of Mel’s that goes from about now to September, and a training plan for the Wildflower Olympic course.
