Congratulations to Brett Roberson and Monica Guy for competing in the 2013 HITS Championship Half Ironman, Palm Springs, CA.
- Brett Roberson: 5:52:37
- Monica Guy: 5:57:06
A flat course through the desert, blowing a gale, and the water was so cold it took most of the bike course to get any feeling back in our feet and hands.
Fantastic fun, though, and we would recommend HITS triathlons to anyone looking for a reasonably priced, well organized and well attended race.
