Just a quick update from the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport. I am on my way to Clermont, Florida for my first race of the season at the USA Elite Sprint Nationals. This race is an ITU Pan American cup, so it will be a draft legal race just like the one I did in October in Myrtle Beach, only this is a sprint distance. (Sprints are half the distance of an Olympic=750m swim/20km bike/5km run)
Training has been going really well, especially considering the busy season of indoor track that just concluded. I’ve been working hard on my swim, and I think that will show on Saturday.
Please follow along my journey this weekend by checking my twitter account: http://twitter.com/jasonpedersen and checking back to this blog next week.
