For endurance events, I do recommend giving Spiz a try. It's not available everywhere, but if your in San Diego, you can get it a Rev Endurance.

The sun rises, it would soon be up. And we would be off.
Here we go. Just a few miles in.
Already going uphill.
Yup, its that freaking steep
Turnin' over the cranks.
Gut check. Strava start. Yeah, right. Leave that for the skinny dudes.
This is a steep part. I'm doing the "paperboy" Photographer captured it well.
The downhill was fun! Tuck and GO!
Bike: Specialized Roubaix Expert
Fuel: Sunrype Mango Manosteen, Rootbeer Gu, and on course PB&J
(okay maybe an oreo or two, too)
Pedal time 6:38.
Weather: About as good as it gets for the desert in January. 47 at start. 75 at finish. Breezy in spots on northern third, but not bad.
The event: Great. Quiet, low traffic road. More aid stations than you could possibly need. The chance to at least see of the areas best riders. Strongly recommend this one.

What is next? Well I am signed up for IM California-Oceanside 70.3 in March. If my knee continues to behave, my plan for next year is one or two 70.3s and several shorter tris. I also want to focus on my weight and conditioning. For a former obese ~400 pounder I have done well. But by triathlete standards I am heavy. It shows in the pictures this year, I really need to get the weight down some more. This will help with speed, but more importantly it will save the joints and muscles stress, allowing me to keep doing this stuff.
No 140.6's next year, unless, of course the Kona Lottery comes up for me! :-) I'd walk through hell in a gasoline suit to race at Kona.
