Went too hard on the bike, but didn't care. 52/243 and 3/17 AG. Ran out of water at 35mi point as the 2nd water stop wasn't fully setup. Had to climb SL with stinging sweat in my eyes. Stopped a the water stop at the top and guzzled a full bottle and filled up my bar bottle.
What would you do differently?:

Slow down, but hey it was a fun ride
Transition 2
  • 05m 34s

Once I got to the rack I took my time to put on the socks and dump some water on my head as it was getting warm. I could tell that my legs were toasted and the run was going to be a long day
  • 3h 23m 56s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 15m 34s  min/mile

Right quad cramped up on me at <1mi so I decided to enjoy the hot sunny weather and started walking. Ran from 5 to 7.5 and last 1.1. Could have run more but didn't want to have any long lasting muscle issue after the race.
What would you do differently?:

Slower bike to run more

Event comments:

Had to be on the hottest day of the year so far! Only issue was the not having the 2nd water stop on the bike ready when I got there. Otherwise I'm doing this race again as its a great early spring race to get the winter training in focus. Besides it was only $100 to do!

Going for broke in a race, as a pro or an amateur, can mean failure or exhilaration -- or both.

I thought of all the times I didn’t attempt something I wanted to do because I was too afraid of trying something new or of failing completely.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

It’s a challenge to push yourself a little harder and a little further. Be proud of every workout that is accomplished and every step-even the baby ones-that you take on this course to the finishline.
