Great to see you there- I love how small the tri world actually is.
Also, the practice tri you ran (that i bonked at) taught me to pace myself, which helped me to have a great race today.  THANKS.

No email here (i was a late in-person registrant at ride&roll)
Thanks if you can forward me:

cheers,
steve

Smaller but faster paced steps, then run a whole bunch.

I want a piece of those suggestions too. 
My AG ranking out of the water: 35 (good), off the bike: 30 (good), off the run: 51 (sad face goes here).   Finished 39 in AG but could have gone up to 30 with an 8:30 pace.  

Good to hear that everyone enjoyed the race, it is definitely a rpeater for me in 2010.

How do you like your bling?

The wife did this one (her first and she rocked).  I watched the kids and cheered everyone on.

The dismount area was TINY and around a blind curve.  I counted no less than 15 wrecks (including the 2nd place elite female, lots of blood down her leg) at the dismount line.  They ended more warning there.

Saw someone (male) in a BT tri top and shouted "GO BT" a few times.  Not sure who that was however.

I rarely spectate (uauly I'm the one racing) but it was a nice change of pace.  Seemed to be a well organized event.  Ifv you do it def. stay at the Sheraton.  Great hotel, reasonable rate and you cannot get any closer to the action.  I could have watched the entire race from my balcony.

That was me! I think that was you at T2 and the turn at the finish chute. I tried to find you after I finished.

This was my first ever endurance event of any kind. I have never even ran a 5K. I did a heart association walk a couple of years ago and barely finished because, as I found out later, I had a kidney stone. This really was a amazing experience. I did awful on the swim, bike and run but pretty solid other than that. I only had two goals, finish and then beat 2 hours. I barely accomplished both.

I knew my training wasn't sufficient but my reasoning was; get in the race and then hopefully get motivated by the race. Well, that has happened I am hooked...I think. I wouldn't recommend that style though. Train, train, train and then race is probably the better path.

Took me a couple of hours to see straight but I found BT for the first time that night. I have logged several hours watching the swim videos since sunday and I am working on putting together my training log. I am the real deal when it comes to "couch to anything."

I am training for the next Sand Key event. I need some fellow couchers to get into their first one so I have some company on the 5K walk/run 10ft/walk some more.

Yep those were the spots!  You looked good!  I looked for you as well to introduce myself but it was a bit crowded at the finish.

It was a fun event - my wife is one of the coordinators. Also, unlike many races, all proceeds go to charity! Happy with 2nd Place in Skip Cline charity division.
