Pre-race routine:

Originally I was supposed to be racing Chattanooga 70.3 this weekend but, well, we all know how that turned out. I got an email from Rev3 talking about virtual races so I checked it out, decided I wanted to do it, and registered my husband and myself. The race could be done any day from May 17-23, all in the same day or spread out across a couple. We opted to do it regular race style, all on one day.

It was Salute the Military, so I put my Army-enlisted niece's name on my leg and raced for her. Also, since it was easy to do change of clothes, I traded my bike jersey for a Save a Warrior run shirt I had.

Event warmup:

Flexible start time. Clean facilities, no lines! Running water! Dry, safe transition area with plenty of room! Able to make last minute clothing changes!

Listened to the US Air Force play the national anthem (thanks, YouTube), then headed out!
  • 10m
  • 0 meters
  • / 100 meters

Instead of a swim, obviously, racers could pick whatever activity they wanted to do for 10 minute. We walked the dogs.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 1h 47m 56s
  • 25 miles
  • 13.90 mile/hr

LS jersey and tri shorts.

Went pretty well overall. Low traffic. Saw a fair amount of walkers, runners, and other bicyclists.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 1h 15m 50s
  • 10 kms
  • 07m 35s  min/km

Did a full clothing change - put running shorts on instead of tri shorts and switched into my Save a Warrior shirt to help show military support.

I was a hurting pup. A major and intense day of yard work yesterday had me sore and tired to start. Almost quit but soldiered on. It got a little better for maybe 2 miles, then it was back to being a struggle but I got 'er done.
What would you do differently?:

Not do many hours of hard yard work the day before!
Post race
Warm down:

Water. Beer. Sit. Stretch.

Event comments:

Rev3, thanks for making this race virtual and making it fun. The athlete guide was cleverly written and very entertaining. I was glad to be able to support your organization in this messed up time. Keep being you!
