My ass was really dragging when I got out of the water. For a few seconds i was light headed and a little nauseous. I needed to gather myself. I could really feel my almost non existent training this year. I knew it would be ugly but I wasn't expecting this. Oh Well!
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 13m 51s
  • 24.6 miles
  • 19.99 mile/hr

Good ride. I was a little slow out of transition but I was able to get squared away and had a good ride.
Transition 2
  • 01m 9s

Good T-2
  • 50m 9s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 05s  min/mile

Not as fast as last year but again very little training. So be it. Not great but not awful either.

Event comments:

Dale does a great job with this race which is why I keep coming back. Not to mention it raises money for the Make a wish foundation. It is also close to me and I ride here frequently. If you are looking for a good home town race that still has a big turn out, this is a great choice!

For a guy that hasn't trained that's a pretty respectable time! Good job, hope to do it next year.
