  • 440 yards
  • 01m 48s / 100 yards
What would you do differently?:

Stay on course and get better sealing goggles -- I had 3x leaks on the L-eye side. Slowed to tread to fix each time.
Transition 1
  • 02m 30s
What would you do differently?:

Run faster and not get clogged on the bike entrance
Bike
  • 36m 14s
  • 12 miles
  • 19.87 mile/hr
What would you do differently?:

Wanted to get above 20 mph avg and got close but not quite. And this bike part is where I lost the Athena 1st place to Leslie Battle. Her bike went fast at 21.6 mph avg so I had no hope of making up those 3 minutes on the run...bummer!

I've got to hammer harder and use the big gears on my new bike much better!

Needs more shade!
What would you do differently?:

Wanted to make up time on the winning athena (Leslie Battle) but instead I lost 30 seconds to her AND got passed by Sen.Scott Brown at mile 2.5 -- argh! My legs were just going as fast as they could though, and the heat was wiping me out.

Will come back next year no doubt; I have to try for the win again!
