I was pretty excited to beat my friend, the 1st place finisher in our age group, by 2 minutes on the bike. Of course he smoked me on the runs and beat me by 8 minutes.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2

Very good transition for me..very happy with that time

I should get some speed laces

  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 56s  min/mile

Pretty slow run but I was pretty wasted...once again that sciatic problem I had slowed me down and it was real hot by now...was dehydrated also. I decided to just go at a pace I knew I could sustain without walking.
What would you do differently?:

Drink more.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Sciatic problems 3 weeks prior to race.

Event comments:

No water station on the runs, ran out of water at the finish, 1 person announcing the winners but no one to hand out the ribbons...who wants to eat pizza after a race??? I would much prefer lots of fruit.
It's the first time I placed in a race since I started racing this year so I'm pretty stoked about that!

Nice job. That's a fun race with some lovely hills to climb on the bike.
