Comments:

The swim is my stongest part of the race. I allways feel good in the water and the hitting and getiing hit by others does not bother me. The early crowding slowed me down a bit but I felt good. I opted not to wear a wet suit and maybe I could have been a little faster, but who knows.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing

Comments:

Again no wetsuit, but I take a extra little time here to put socks on. So I threw my shoes, socks and shirt on along with my new helment and off I went.

It was a pretty nice bike course. It was very crowded with other riders for the most part and you had to be careful not to draft. But I guess with 600 entrants and only 12 miles to ride that is going to happen.

Run

Comments:

Well the heat had all ready started rising by this point so the water stop right at the start of the run was welcome. I knew because of the heat it would be a slower run. Around the first mile we had a nice hill that i was able to pass several folks who opted to walk up it. I had been trying all race to catch a buddy of mine who I work with. I could see him before we started up the hill and knew I could catch him. At the 1.5 mile we hit another water station and headed for home.I ended up catching my friend with about 1/2 mile to go, he had a 6 minute head start (he was in an early wave). ran with him and then he took off, not wanting me to beat him across the line, I just kept my pace and kicked it the last 100 yard or so.

Wow Steve, awesome race.  I dream of times like yours, especially your "slow" run.  It was great to get to hang out with you and to finally meet Jill, tell her I said hi.
