Givin'er on the bike. determined to make up for lost time!! Can see my friend in the distance and am determined to catch her. I go to shift gears and.... OFF COMES THE CHAIN.... damn. Off the bike, chain back on, covered in grease, heading thunder, seeing lightening...back on the bike...feel the twitching in my hamstring that's seizing in the cold. Back off the bike, stretch it out, back on....curse wildly, cry a little... give up a little....then hammer down.
What would you do differently?:

So many many things.

I was wet...I was cold...I was grumpy... I was just behind my friend after all and could see her in the distance. I caught her and passed her. I usually find the run my favorite part and start joking around with everyone as I run.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Equipment failures

Event comments:

This was the single most disastrous race I could have imagined but by no one's fault. Between googles that came apart, bike chain that came off, seized hamstring and freezing rainy weather with thunder, lightening, and ICE pellets....it was a gong show!! Best thing I can say about this race: I lived!!!
Can't wait till next year.

I was passing others who were saying, "Good job, 587" (that was my race number). People were cheering me on. These were the nicest people I have ever been around!

If a heart patient can do these things, then so can those of you who haven't been split open like a fish and sewn back together.
