bike was after the 5K run. 5 or 6 people passed me on the hills. evidence of first time on my bike in 5 months. started sleeting / freezing rain the last 2 miles of the bike. lower back was really aching 15 minutes into the ride. the horn seat was a little uncomfortable after inguinal (groin) hernia surgery back in late Feb. just could get the "boys" in a comfortable riding position...

Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

haven't done any endurance training in a year. using Crossfit methodology to stay fit. spending most of my spare time now with kids & soccer, kids and this, kids and that.... they're more important than age group results... then hernia surgery in feb, lower back & knees, heel & elbow aging issues...
