One of my hard-core tri buddies reminded me that in 2016 I would be "aging up" into an easier, old-man age group. "If you fix your transition, maybe you'll get on the podium next year.
But after my results were posted for the Nautica Malibu Triathlon held in September in Zuma Beach, I was rudely reminded that triathlon is actually four sports."A seven-minute transition! I had one of the worst T1s of the 1,600 triathletes, and it cost me major bragging rights. At least a top 10."So I made a decision: Fix my transition, go back to Malibu next year and claim the glory that I cheated myself out of this year.
