Warm down:

Hung out with Meg and the kids and waited for their race to start.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I had a great race. I should have biked harder.

Event comments:

This is hands down our favorite race! Both boys did great in their races. They were 10 minutes faster than last year. This is my 5th year of doing the Clear Lake tri and I have been happy to continually improve.
