Pre-race routine:

Hung out with Trix! Gave her some swimming tips as we watched swimmers at IM Circle.

The race took place near the complex where I stayed as an undergrad. :) Plenty of memories. :)
Event warmup:

Did roughly a mile w/u with Trix. The w/u definitely helped to loosen my tight calves and got the motor running.

Comments:

Well, the plan was to start out SLOW - 9ish minute first mile and descend thereafter. First mile? 7:40. Ooops. It wasn't my fault though! Trix was right behind me and she was suppose to keep me in check! A couple of times between mile 1 and 2 I almost broke away from Trix, but I fought the urge (and Trix had a few choice comments)! I started tiring at the 2.5 mile point, but held strong to the finish. Trix hit her "extra" gear at the end and POWERED past me!


What would you do differently?:

I don't have the endurance, leg strength, or access to my "extra" gear just yet, so I'm happy with my result! That said, I sure WANTED to let it rip as I felt smooth for the majority of the race. :)

Warm down:

Ate a YUMMY bagel and chatted with Trix inside the Jenison Building.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I've been on the DL for a long freakin' time!

AWESOME to be RACIN' again. I'm such a CRACK ADDICT.

Event comments:

Great time! :)

Trix ROCKS, BTW. :)

First mile? 7:40. Ooops.

Almost spat my coffee all over my monitor! Glad you had FUN with The Trixinator, Greg! Do more fun stuff! Way to hold back your Inner Fromer, too.

Love, Mom.

Wish I could run a 7:40 by accident. "Oops." That's classic.

Great run, Greg.  Wish I could have been there to join y'all.  But...Under 8's, uninjured, and had a great time?  I say score one in the 'success' column. 

Does BT have a comeback triathlete of the year award?!
