Event warmup:

rode 2.5 miles

Swim went pretty well. Navigated well going downstream, but not so well as I was tiring and coming back upstream. Did pretty well overall, would've been 14th fastest swim in OlyTri

Transition 1
  • 02m 17s

Was able to jog the whole way from water to T1. Went pretty smoothly, although I wasn't rushing too much.
  • 1h 01m 23s
  • 40 kms
  • 39.10 km/hr

would've been 23 in the OlyTri. Fun course. Double out and back with 1 mod hill in the middle. Stayed aero almost the whole time, 100% in big chaiin ring. Hit the final turnaround adn pushed the laslt 6 miles back in , knowing I didn't have to run, and neg split by almost a min. Legs, quads, adn glutes are beat today, thoguh.

Event comments:

Great race. Up to ~500 racers this year, up from ~200 in 2019. Fun bike course. Rain made it a bit tougher, but still a fun race and great morning.
