This image was shot while I was traveling from Orange County, California to Sonoma, CA. I was on my way to do my first half ironman, in Sonoma. I can remember thinking while I was doing the actual triathlon that this such a surreal experience. There were thousands of athletes taking over the country-side in our wetsuits, on our bikes and running on our very worn out legs. The race took place in July, which is normally hot for this region, but we lucked out as we had a cool day with even a few misty showers.
