Great job.  The bike will sort itself out soon enough, but I think you are in a great position if the run is where you are strongest.  The run is usually where the race is won or lost.  I bet the lungs are feeling better too now that you have not smoked for over 2 months.  Look forward to seeing you build on this race and keep kicking butt.
