Max Pain does the June Lake Tri
After years of pondering, the stars aligned and Rick Ferrell, Dave Slothower and I did the June Lake Triathlon. Rick was in great shape, even doing the Firecracker 10K just 3 days before our race. I was still recovering from a half marathon the week before, and a 60 mile ride 4 days pre-race. Left side IT band and thence into my left hip psoas area, were the problem after getting onto a tough, steep 10K trail run into the high Sierra. The good news is that the rest of the competition in my age group mostly got scared away from this race - so I took 3rd! My first podium time for a triathlon!
