I hooked up with the group at Windsor High School this morning.  We went out as a team and did a bike ride over the run course.  A few hills in a shaded country lane, right along the La Crema Vineyard.  Very nice, but not exactly a walk in the park. 

After, I lined up to get my bib number and set up my run gear at T2.  There was a short race briefing including a discussion about all the penalties they can give you out there.  Most of the time, it’s  for safety anyway so if you ride okay then you won’t get one.
