90F / 32C
Total Time = 5h 39m 25s
Overall Rank = 542/1257
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 59/147
  • 42m 23s
  • 2111 yards
  • 02m 01s / 100 yards

Started off way too slow thinking I had to save myself, even for me this is slow.....
Transition 1
  • 05m 1s

That took about 2 minutes longer than it should....I was 880/99 in terms T1 so bottom half, very slow
  • 3h 00m 18s
  • 57.17 miles
  • 19.02 mile/hr

Had to pee 3 times, that took 10-12 minutes right there.......second half was fast and comfortable, could and should have pushed harder earlier, again tried to save myself, for what? Chalk Hill is nothing, really...much anticipated, I wouldn't even stack it up against hills like Bailey or Mt Eden....
Transition 2
  • 03m 49s

I was number 614/67 so about average
  • 1h 47m 52s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 14s  min/mile

Was a good run, overall rank is decent...I was surprised how strong I felt first 10 miles...last three I was fading, very hot...aid stations each mile were a life saver....I ran really hard last 2 miles as I had age groupers on my heels, a minor stampede there....I arrived at the finish pretty wasted because of the 20 minute sprint but bounced back in a few minutes run time saved kmy overall time, no doubt....
