I got my left foot out of the shoe while on the bike but couldn't get my right out. I did a 'cross dismount at the line, ripped of my other shoe and 'cross carrried/ran w my bike thru the TA. Some jackass got in the way while I was racking the bike and cost me a couple of seconds, but other than that T2 was good.

Avoid the jackass

fruit and water and walked to my truck to change. Just beat the rain and sleet!! Hung around to cheer on the other QCTCers

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training

Event comments:

The finish was anti-climactic, there wasn't anybody around as the rain was moving in. The MAP volunteers scattered as soon as the rain hit. I felt bad for everybody left on the course. Post race activites sucked, but that was expected for this small a race. I know where I need to work and now it's time to get ready for White Lake Half.

Overall a good start to the season. The very best part was watching all of the other QCTCers race and finish, as well as all of the folks that come into Inside Out Sports. They really had to put up with some rough weather and I'm proud to be associated with all of them. Everybody had smiles as they finished and their enthusiasm is contagious.
