View Member's Race Log
Gallup to Grants, NM
United States
Total Time = 2h 12m 37s

Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

I was one of the coordinators for the event and ran around fueling and stocking support vehicles and trying to fnd another support driver when one no-showed. Drove a support vehicle for about 30 miles before my section of the relay.
Event warmup:

Did a little bit of stretching. Started the ride segment slow and built up speed.
  • 26m 26s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 49s  min/mile

Felt good considering the long ride. My buddies were hurting and it slowed me down a little bit.
Transition 1
  • 02m

Time is approximate. The group was trying to decide whether to run the torch the last stretch or continue on the bikes.
  • 1h 44m 11s
  • 25 miles
  • 14.40 mile/hr

Our group was behind schedule so I pushed it hard on the bike from Thoreau to Prewitt. I eased up after Prewitt because of other teammates who hadn't had a chance to ride yet. last half was fairly casual.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I slowed down for other team members who wanted to participate, which is not an issue for this type of event. I think we achieved our goals and had a lot of fun.

Event comments:

It was a relay by law enforcement to promote and raise money for special olympics, but another agency stated that they could cover more miles than mine, so "the race was on." I participated bike/run, so activites are reverse of what is listed above. I was one of the coordinators, which had its headaches, but it was real rewarding when it all came together.
