HORRIBLE swim... learned a lesson.. WARM UP in the water... never could get comfortable.... kept running into people... swam outside of one of the kayaks... HORRIBLE given the short distance!

Warm up in the water!
Transition 1
  • 01m 9s

Not a bad transition but much slower than race leaders
What would you do differently?:

The run from the lake to T1 was sandy... I used a towel to knock off the majority of the sand prior to putting on my cycling shoes... a bucket might have been better!

Pretty good bike leg... slightly slower than last September on same course... wet roads from sprinklers at a couple of corners forced slower cornering.. passed a lot of people though!

Early in the season still... not at race weight yet...

Event comments:

Not sure what was going on with AGs... they posted one set and announced Top 3 (only after demanding it from Emcee) in each group only to post different AGs on the website... event is not USAT Sanctioned and would like to see MMS get onboard with that... awards for AG winners were being mailed as they were not available. A good small town local event but it is time for MMS to step things up!
