2008 Accenture Escape from Alcatraz

Congratulations JOHN BRANDERHORST,

You are one of the lucky triathletes that have been selected as a winner
the December 15, 2007 random drawing for a slot in the Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon to be held in San Francisco on June 8, 2008.  

On June 8th, you will get to jump off a perfectly good boat into the frigid
water of the San Francisco Bay, swim with 1800 of your best friends from
Alcatraz to Little Marina Green.  You will climb out of the water and run
(with or without shoes) one half mile to the transition area, jump on your
bike and ride 18 miles (most people say that it is all up hill) and then
run 8 miles (under the Golden Gate Bridge, through the sands of baker beach,
up the infamous sand ladder and back to Marina Green to the finish line.
What a great way to spend your life.
