Comments:

I started out with the gorup and looked at my watch and saw a 10minute pace - i knew i couldn't hold that so i puled up to 11:30 and the pack just took off ahead of me - i was dfl. It does not feel good to be there.I had a feeling some other people would be dropping back as hey probably got caught up in the herd pace. Sure enough by 1.5mile i had a little compay, but very little mayeb two or three people. I did as well as i should expect having done veery little training for this one.

Came out of the water and had some beverages and bananas

Event comments:

The postrce party was geld out on the lawn at naples beach hotel which is beautiful. They had a band and a full breakfast buffet done by the hotel - eggs, pancakes, bacon, all served on linens - i was impressed. Too bad i filled up on bananas and couldn't eat the good stuff.

I really enjoyed this race as it was not a complete ballbuster and i was able to enjoy the rest of the day
