Matt competed in his second sprint triathlon at Point Mugu on June 23. The Admiral's Cup is held every year right before the U.S. Armed Forces Triathlon Championship at Naval Base Ventura County, which is about a half hour north of Malibu. Needless to say, it is a gorgeous course!The race consists of a 400M ocean(!) swim, 20K bike ride, and 5K run. Matt did a great job! (And he wasn't eaten by a shark, so that's a win.) He was in the first wave of swimmers, improved on his previous bike time (I'm excited for him to kill it on his next race now that he has a bike that fits), and finished with a solid 3.1. We're hoping to make it back next year, and the next, and the next...
|The mass beach start into the ocean is crazy.|

|Matt and Shawn had fun checking out all the pro's gear.|
