There is a hill right out of transition, I was aware and planned ahead. Know that many will not - this dude on a Cervelo was taking cyclists out right and left, I saw him go down 3 times as I navigated around him.
Um, why are all the roads in WI cememt slabs? I have never seen such a thing. The road groves took a little getting use to but then I settled in. I was on pace for the first half but then the wind and heat started tuckering me out. The course is basically farm roads with rollers. I was happy that after getting out of town the road conditions were better than I anticiated. But you have to pay attention.

The run was 2 loops, mostly flat, with little shade. Despite having to see the finish line before starting the second loop I like the mental aspect of knowing exactly what the last loop looked like and where the aid stops were. This is what kept me going.
