I am new to triathlons and am overweight.  Do you think a year of moderate training would get me ready for a Half as I am thinking of doing Lake Stevens next year.

So how did everyone do?  34-2-2:53-2-1:39 = 5:11.  I was surprised at how tough the rollers were.  I expected some long, steady climbs, but the pesky moderate gains took their toll. The hills on the run sapped me, too.  Anyone else think the swim was long?  Not that it matters as it's the same for everyone, but something didn't seem right with the finishing times.

Although it was definitely a challenging course, I thought it was a great event and I'm glad I did it.  I will be back!

Great race!  Congrats on the finishing time, that's really impressive.  Did you get your Clearwater slot?  It seemed like they were rolling down pretty far in most AG's.

I didn't get a spot.  I guess I should have stuck around to see for sure, but I walked down to the table and saw that they only had 4 spots in my division, and I was 30th.  It would have been interesting to see how the roll-down works, but I just figured there would be no way it would roll all of the way down to me.  I did enjoy the post-race spread of pizza, fruit, cookies and cold drinks tho!

And congrats on your CW spot!  Just read your review.  Awesome swim.  Sub-30?  You're a fish!
