started slow due to wetsuit but shoulders still got tight quickly. had no feet to swim on since todd gerlach sped off and the other 2 that beat me out of the water swam wide left the whole time. felt like i swam faster than 31min but oh well.

slow first lap. 2nd lap i was heating up. 3rd lap stopped early b/c front brake rubbing. less than a min after starting back up I get a flat on the disk. that cost me a good 10min. then stopped again b/c front wheel sounded like it was rattling to pieces. I serious wanted to bail after the 3rd stop. After 30sec of pouting I hammered home. Good thing the bike hits the shop this week for some new cables and chains after 2+ years of no maintenance.

Transition 2
  • 01m 45s

  • 13.1 miles
  • 07m 20s  min/mile

came out blazing in first few miles with low 6s but soon was at a steady 7:30ish pace in the heat. Was also a bit deflated from the flat tire and knowing the guys ahead of me had too much time to makeup. Did see one guy ahead on me on 2nd loop so made it a point to catch him quickly and them bury him. He commented he would let me go since i wasnt in his age. WTF?
