  • 01m 38s / 100 yards

Easy pool swim, Did not need to pass anyone and was not passed by anyone. This was a PR for this race!!

Transition 1

This was a good T1 nothing exciting
  • 38m 58s

It took a little time to get my breathing down and to get into a groove and just as I did, a truck tried to run a few of us off the road. This took me a few minutes to get settled and get back into my groove
What would you do differently?:

Not have a truck swerve at me!!!
Transition 2

Great transition, I tried the jump off and run thing and did not fall on my butt!!!

I really felt slow on this whole run! I never got into the groove. My breathing was off, I felt slow, I was hot and just not feeling good.

Not play golf and drink beer on the friday before a race.
Post race
Warm down:

grabbed some drinks and food with the family and cheered other racers to the finish.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My job and booking a big customer on the golf course.

Event comments:

This is a great race for a mini sprint. It was my first race years ago and I will continue to do it as long as I race.
