To photograph this assignment I woke up at 5:50am and left the house a little after 6:00am. I reached Venice Beach around 6:30am about 45 minutes before the elite athletes start time. After photographing on the beach for about an hour, I started walking along Venice Blvd to photograph the biking leg. I then got back to my car to drive downtown. It was rough getting back to the 10 highway because of the street closures. A few mistakes along the way did result in seeing Arnold Schwarzenegger riding his bike on Main Street in Santa Monica.
I finally reached downtown in enough time to catch a few of the elite athletes still on their bikes. I shot a few images then headed my way to the finish line to capture Cameron Dye (Male) who finished first with a time of 1:46:34 and Lisa Norden (Female) in 1:57:16.
Photos will be posted in 3 segments from the triathlon.
