Pre-race routine:

Picked up my packet, did a drop at the car and then waited around. Proudly wore my Tri Donk top and received some nice comments about it. Ran into a few peopel I knew and chit chatted with them -walk out to the start
Event warmup:

  • 24m 38s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 55s  min/mile

First mile felt fast , but sustainable
Middle portion was tough dealing with the snow
Last portin I stayed about 5 steps back from a couple a knew and was bound to beat. They passed me rigt after the 2 mile mark and then kept behind them anywhere from 15 to 5 feet back. I closed the gap a bit going up a short hill and then prepare then set up for the final 200 yard worked perfectly I heard someone say 200 yards and I then DTFU. as I dusted the couple I heard her say "that scared me" as I accelrated past them, pretty sure they had no clue I was lurking behind. He's in my AG so I least Imoved up one spot. I crossed the line at top speed and gernerally happy with the run and time
