Went out a bit too hard the 1st 100m, I was too pumped up! 1st 1/2, I was at 3:50....Got my jersey caught on a lane line cable go under it, no biggie. My time was more cuz I went out too hard that 1st half. Was :40 slower than last year!
What would you do differently?:

Maybe not start out so hard, 1st time I ever did that! Think the fact that I won this race last year, was kinda burning me up with the feva!!!

All transition time was in the bike portion, as usual. My transitions were ok today. Not as polished as I was last season, but getting back too it. Definitely didn't feel like a rusty ol' man today like I did @ Leadman 2 weeks ago!

Event comments:

Had a great race today! Shave 2:55 off the race from last year! Was pleased with the results, winning my age group last year then taking 2nd this year, I have to say, this race is becoming one of my favorites! Even though the bike course is a bit rough, it is still fast....
