2012 Wildflower long course

There was plenty of fireworks and drama at the 30th anniversary Wildflower long course triathlon Saturday at Lake San Antonio California.. Jesse Thomas posted the second fastest men's time ever while winning his second straight title on the classic Wildflower course. Heather Jackson one upped Thomas by breaking the course record with a 4:26:29 clocking - not to forget a blazing 1:21:08 run that also broke the course record set by another Heather, Heather Fuhr, in 1999. Former champions like 2000 winner Chris Legh took 5th. And a good time was had by all.
