Brad Kearns knew there was a window, but he wasn't sure if he could squeeze through. Kearns, of Cool, Calif., figures he is about 1 minute 40 seconds faster than Laguna Beach's Brett Rose in the 10-kilometer run portion of a triathlon. And Rose had pedaled into the transition area at Lake Mission Viejo exactly 1:38 ahead of him Sunday morning after two-thirds of the Orange County Performing Arts Center Triathlon. "I was worried," Kearns said.

In retrospect, Scott Molina of Boulder, Colo., didn't think it was a good decision for him to compete Sunday in the Orange County Performing Arts Center Triathlon at Mission Viejo. Molina flew in from Dallas Saturday night, where he had just finished fourth in a triathlon that morning and was attempting his second race in 24 hours, a rare occurence for triathletes. Of course, after winning the men's competition by 19 seconds, he wasn't about to complain over the results.

Brad Kearns had a big lead after the bicycle leg of the Orange County Performing Arts Center Triathlon Sunday. His lead was big enough that even after taking a spill during the transition to the running leg, Kearns was still able to win the race by 52 seconds, finishing in 1 hour 49 minutes 33 seconds. Greg Welch was second in 1:50:25. "I think I got a little too excited," Kearns said about his accident. "I haven't been (that far) in the lead (after the cycling leg) like that before."
