I was not mentally into this......I kept telling myself that I could DNF after the bike. Physically I was fine but mentally I just could not get there. Decent ride with power around 235-240
What would you do differently?:

Be mentally stronger
Transition 2
  • 01m 9s
Comments:

Both my quads seized up as I racked the bike....here was my chance to bail from the race. But, I decided I would at least get to the first mile then quit
Run
  • 44m 48s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 13s  min/mile
Comments:

Quads felt marginal through the first mile but I decided I would push through even if it meant walking. I had to stop several times to try and rub cramps/knots out of my quads. Made for a miserable run but at least I finished it
What would you do differently?:

Need to be mentally stronger
Post race
Warm down:

Tried to go for a short jog but legs would not cooperate.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Really checked out mentally but pushed through the physical issues

Event comments:

Team Magic always does a great job and can't beat the post race festivities at The Hangout. This was the last of 3 pretty crappy races through the Summer. Still won AG but just not very sharp during the Summer
