Comments:

What a great run- was cold this morning but quickly warmed up after running so I was very comfortable. Ended up talking to another triathlete for about 8 miles and he paced me up a little faster than I had planned- but I was fine so it worked out great! My goal was to finish before 2:20 and I smoked it so I am very happy!
What would you do differently?:

nothing- just train more
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched, ate a banana, gatorade, and went back to the room- soaked in a warm tub for 20 minutes and then got a huge plate of BBQ at the 3 pigs- my favorite post race recovery food!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

just lack of training at this distance. I really have nothing to complain about- I raised the bar for myself now and next 1/2 mary I expect to get under 2:00

Event comments:

It was nice- missed the expo day before- but it was a small race maybe 500 total people. Well organized- needed a few more water stations, but it was ok. No real post race activities- but it was still a great early season event

Good job - looks like a sub-2:00 is just around the corner! Are you going to make an attempt at the ING Georgia Half?

As small as this race is I am sure that I saw you there!
