Race Recap: Cool Breeze Triathlon

The Cool Breeze Triathlon was held on March 28th, 2010 at the Huntersville Aquatic Center.  DARTer Chris Brown, who mixes some triathlons into his running, has a brief recap of the race:

"Since this event is so early in the season it should be renamed the Cold Breeze Tri.  This event replaced the popular MAP tri in the NC tri series.  It was a short 250 meter pool swim followed by a frosty 20K bike.  If you have participated in the Latta tri the bike course is very familiar.  Aside from the temps all was well early in the event, but as the day progressed it appeared that traffic was starting to pick up and become more dangerous.  The run had one bad section along 115, but the finish was a surprise.  When the path comes out of the trees you realize you have to make a loop around the field before finishing.  Holding finishing speed for an extra quarter mile was not in the plan.  This event would be super for anyone wanting to try their first triathlon."

Thanks, Chris!  Results of the triathlon can be found here.
