In September I decided to take up Cross Racing. Cross is quite big here in Ohio and I wanted to try something new. The triathlon scene is not quite the same as the Woodlands, TX and riding my bike more became the summer stress buster.
In Columbus, there is a race series hosted by a great group of people at Cap City Cross. The races start in September and ends in December. Although it took me 4 tries, I finally podium in the last race of the season.
I am racing Masters 45+ which is still quite fast and competitive.
My nutrition and race day preparation:
- Trainer Road: 30 Minutes at home in the basement to warm up the legs
- Before Race: Honey Stinger Chews & Myoplex BCAAS + Electrolytes.
