Post race
Warm down:

Cramping towards the end of the race. After the race at the awards ceremony, I actually noticed muscle twitching on the calves when they cramp. Weird and scary.

Event comments:

Great race, surprisingly well organized for a first time event, 1000 people. Sprint started @ 9:30, got to sleep in. Some guy called Simon Whtifield finished the sprint in 55:32, and some girl named Paula Findlay finished in 59:31, compared to mine of 1:26. Paula didn't even race in Edmonton, even though she's from there. Looks like the 2 of them are ready for the London Olympics.

2nd AG, the medal is the same Triathlon Canada medal as in Edmonton, moved up one placing to a silver compared to a bronze from Edmonton. I need a gold to get the whole set, maybe in 3yrs when I get to the next AG!! 2nd race in a row where we get free beer! Fun race indeed. This race will serve as the Nationals for 2013 and 2014, definitely on my race list.
