I decided to go with sneakers this time on the run up from the lake to T1. It definitely cost me time.

back to flip flops

I can't freakin believe I made a wrong turn. THANKS to the guy that yelled out "WRONG WAY" so it didn't cost me that much but STILL! URGH. I've done this course 6 times this summer and I can't believe I did that. I was tired from the weekend and that was my wake up call!
What would you do differently?:

If you look at my garmin data, you can see where I SAW A BEAR! LOL I TOOK OFF and probably pr'd the course! He lives there and certainly didn't care about me or anyone else but I'd say he was 10-12 feet away just walking along the side of the trail. EEK!
What would you do differently?:

Don't carry bear food.
Post race
Warm down:

Friends came to cheer and that's always fun so I just walked around with them for a few minutes.

Event comments:

Another one in the books. Next year I'm definitely doing all 10 - I think I would have had a lock on 3rd in my ag this year (I say this now but who knows what I'll say in a year from now).

Way to AG podium, even if you did take a wrong turn!!  Glad you and the bear didn't tangle.  Seems like that bear might deserve some kudos for helping you do so well!    Very solid race - keep up the great work!

I own both a road bike and a tri bike. I am wondering which bike I should be riding during off season training, or does it matter?
