Now 10 years later it is great to be back in beautiful Gulf Shores, AL for the Brett Robinson Alabama Coastal Triathlon.
By the looks of the pristine beach one could never tell Tropical Storm Gordon passed through earlier in this week.
The Gulf was calm and there was not a current. After a quick 300 yard swim we emerged from the water and ran to transition. The new, spread out transition area flowed perfectly. As we mounted the bike there was an appreciated tailwind that pushed us along to the turn around. On the way back the headwind was not welcomed. PowerAde, water and encouragement were provided when we exited T2. The shadows of the condominiums gave us nice shade on the run course. Spectators lined the finish chute, water and cold towels awaited us at the finish line.
Look for our Sister CHAIN ladies October 6 at the Santa Rosa Island Triathlon, our final team race of the 2018 season. There is still time to sign up for this race and they are offering a discount (use discount code SAVE15) to athletes that competed at Alabama Coastal!!
