Pre-race routine:

Arrived around 7am. Ate a peanutbutter/jelly sandwich and cup of coffee on the way. Scott and I grabbed our race packets and then set up camp in the transition area.
Event warmup:

Light 5 minute jog
  • 16m 3s
  • 2.4 miles
  • 06m 41s  min/mile

It was a bit chilly to start. My legs felt a bit heavy and I just could get going let I wanted left foot has been bothering me again...I hope I haven't fractured it again. I didn't run much last week due to this so that may have been the reason behind my heavy legs.
Transition 1
  • 00m 33s

We had to run up a wee bit of a hill to before we were able to mount our bikes. It wasn't too bad though.
  • 39m 53s
  • 12 miles
  • 18.05 mile/hr

My ride was not as good as I had hoped. I had some technically difficulties. My front tire was rubbing on my break the entire way so I felt like I had a little extra resistance. And...being from Wilmington I am really not used to the hills.
Transition 2
  • 00m 29s
  • 08m 1s
  • 1.2 miles
  • 06m 41s  min/mile

Again...I just didn't feel like my legs up working like they should. It took me a few minutes to find my legs but once I did I felt ok. I had nothing left at the end like usual though...I think the bike took it's toll.

Event comments:

Scott and I both enjoyed this race and had a lot of fun. It was small which was a nice change. And...the hills were challenging which is good. I needed that. I placed 1st in my age group and 8th overall for females so needless to say I was very pleased. I would do this one again for sure!
