Comments:

well, so much for my ranking. Yes, my running splits always suck. That first mile...I'm sure it was 11 minutes. I really hurt, and then the leg began to open up a little. By mile 3 I felt a little better, but then by 4 I was starting to fade physically. It had been a long time since I had gotten to the race site (4 hours prior to swim almost!) and it was hot.
What would you do differently?:

get a new left leg!!!Massage
Post race
Warm down:

Massage! I actually had two people working on me. It was awesome. Not as good as day before, but adequate.t

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lacking the weaponry that everyone seemed to had, not being acclimated to heat, and a faulty leg, but not bad at all for a gimp.

Event comments:

I would HIGHLY recommend this race! I loved seeing the pros, loved seeing Sister Madonna on course, loved loved loved St. Pete area. Beauutiful run on Snell Island, right past multi-million dollar homes. Plus lots of fun with the pelicans and the BT Mafia in Florida. Made for great times. This is a great destination race!!!

Yeah, its really us Florida BTers that make the race so great.    I think the temp was closer to VERY HOT by the time you got out.  Maybe next year you can go out with the elite women.  All you need is a new leg and a P3.  I mean they had them at the expo, you could have bought yourself one.  Oh well.  Nice meeting you and good times this weekend.

Take care of that leg girl!!  I think some rest and more massage is in order for you.  Glad you had a good time and got to hob knob with the pros.   Way to go on the race!!!

We lived in Tampa for 7 yrs and I absolutely loved it!!  There's just something about warm weather and a year round tan.    Your report definitely makes me want to go back.

All right Amy! 2:47 is an awesome time!! It was so great to meet you- wish we could've gotten to chat more, but you were there to RACE, not socialize!

Hope to see you at another race - I'm not too far away from you, so we should plan a race or bike ride together one of these days...
