Lake Tahoe, Part 1: The XTERRA US Championship
Never one to turn down an invitation to a cocktail party, I attended the pre-dinner reception with the XTERRA athletes. At left, here I am with "The Pacifica Beer Girls". Go ahead, click on the photo to enlarge it. You know you want to see them more closely. (FYI- Pacifica Beer was one of the event sponsors). The reception was filled with interesting people, all of whom seem truly committed to the entire triathlon event. They are like a family, watching out for each other and sharing stories of the day's events.

EXCITING AMATEUR VIDEO!
