What a fun race yesterday! Upstream portion of the swim got cancelled, so all downstream and only around 1300 yd. Bike was GORGEOUS and run was HOT! I had a great time out there!

My full race report is up here. 

Yay! Was it your first Chatt or have you done this one before? If so, how would you compare it to the previous ones?

I did the full version in September (when the entire swim was cancelled) but first time doing the 70.3. This was my 12th (I think) Half Ironman and I was looking forward to a not-as-hot day with it being in mid-May and whanot. WRONG! High was 89 degrees and full sun. Early summer in this part of the country. I don't think I've ever done a 70.3 in not-blazing-hot conditions.

Swim: All downstream this year, which I've never done in a race before. Current-assisted and deceiving swim times. Super easy.
Bike: LOVE this bike course! Wildly fun and do-able hills. Some nice sections where you can get in aero and cruise. Gorgeous scenery all around you. 
Run: There are no "Barton" hills on the 70.3 course, so it was less hilly than the full. Still a few good inclines on each of the two loops. Not much shade. GREAT aid stations.

If it is too hot down there, ya'll can come out to Idaho. We had thought summer was starting the past two weeks, but apparently not. Highs in the 50's and light rain most of the time in Boise since last Friday, a bunch of fresh snow up at the ski resort. I ran with gloves yesterday. Memorial Day weekend is supposed to be cloudy to rainy with highs in the low 60's. My guess is CDA 70.3 late next month will be a cool one. (Morning is always cool; afternoons can be anything, depending on weather fronts, sunshine or not, etc.)

I am not planning any tris for the year at this point, at least until I can swim and bike without serious physical discomfort or making a fool of myself. At some point soon, hopefully, I will know where I am living next school year and can plan some run events, if nothing else.

Yikes--where's all that snow?! A former colleague who's now teaching in New Mexico (not sure where, but clearly somewhere up pretty high) said they had snow yesterday morning and might delay school start time. And Wednesday is their last day for kids. Wow!

Hands and I got to hang out quite a bit! It was fun!  We definitely need to discuss doing more of the same events. I am counting on seeing her again at Land and Sky :-D

Ann-Marie, I know that you mentioned Zion. Let's also put Mt. Lemmon on the list. Kevin wants to ride bikes out there.

Speaking of Land and Sky, where are we on the Manatee shirt?

It looks like they are both of November 2?

Mt. Lemmon would be 2020 at the soonest. I just put it on "the list" because Kevin is interested. It would be difficult to do Land and Sky *and* Mt. Lemmon at the same time!
