Swim
  • 08m 50s
  • 400.00 meters
  • 02m 13s /100 meters

Very dissapointed with the swimming leg...no with my swimming...but...the real problem was that I couldn't performe a good swimming not because of me...cuz...the beginning of our wave was the worse that I have had in my triathlon life...more than the usual kick and punch combat...there were too many people in our wave (All Female 40+, Athenas, Female Fat Tire and Relays)
It was like a pack of buffaloes in stampede crossing a river...LOL..women jumping over others...passing over...
Just when I jumped into the water and lifted my head...I had to back off a little when I saw the pack in front of me...It was a completly messy mass of heads, arms, elbows, legs and feet...WTH...???? all this mass till the first buoy...BTW...somebody smacked my nose with her arm at that point...then from the first bouy till the second...I was stuck behind a huge mass of slowly swimmers jammed all together...and...were all around me...it was too hard to pass them...and...it was finally at the second bouy 1/2 way to the Swim Exit when I finally pass them and I could start swimming with my usual constante pace...but...the time losing here...costed me the 5th place of my AG...and...Podium...Grrrrrrrrr!!!!
I think next time...I will need to be very aggresive...jumping and passing over women in that way I don't get stuck behind the pack...

T1: 02:56
A fast transition like usual cuz I needed to recover my time losing in the swimming...
I was the fastest in my AG and 121st Overall of 780 participants...
A long run in the soft white sand from the swim exit till Transition...maybe 1/4 mile....ufffff!!!!

Bike
  • 31m 58s
  • 10.00 miles
  • 18.90 Mi/hr

It was a nice bike ride...going to the famous and beast Rickenbacker Bridge...I could feel the headwinds coming from the west...but...then in our way back to Transition tailwinds...very nice...!!!

But...unfortunate we had to deal with a shocking view in our bike leg... a very serious and bad accident with the leader of the Race...Miguel Tellez...a very well known Pro-Elite Triathlete from South Florida...
He was hit by a car in an intersection controlled by a police officer...WTH...How this happened???...I think this police officer screwed up...
And all the Pro-Elite Male Triathletes didn't continue and finish the Race cuz they stayed with him in support till the ambulance came and took him to the Hospital...
Here is the news in the newspaper:
http://www.miamiherald.com/459/story/1107564.html

I was smocking in my bike very focused when suddenly I saw a red SUV in the middle of our way...and...I had to reduce speed and almost stop...to round the car...and..in this point I saw the bike in front of the car...and...a pool of blood...apparently when he fell...he hit his head very bad...
Everybody that passed that point was in shock...at this point we didn't know who was the person that had the accident...till...we finished the Race...Very Scary!!!
You don't expect something like that in a Race with a closed road...and...intersections and entrances or exits controlled for the Police...

Very sad incident..."Miguel...We are with you...Sending positive Vibes on your way...and...Hope you have a fast recovery"

T2: 00:52 The fastest in my AG and 79th Overall...

Run
  • 25m 34s
  • 3.10 miles
  • 08m 15s /Mi

A nice run like usual...but the heat and humidity...Ufffff!!!

Total Time: 1:10:10

That's Ok....Every year is the same...I got 6th or 7th in the 1st Trilogy...but...then...my revenge is in the rest of the Trilogy....

Even all the circunstances...It was a great Race like usual...!!!


I got 6th place in my AG 45-49 of 22 women....well...We were 24 women in our AG but 2 were awarded out of the AG...one in the Female Overall and other in the Female Master....

41st Feamle Overall of 189 women...

255th Overall of 780 participants...

One women (Linda Robb) of my AG was 1st Female Overall and 10st Overall....She is the fastest women of all Florida and has been 1st Overall in our AG in the USAT National Rank....and...a good friend of mine Marylou Brunett got 3rd Female Master Overall....Good Job Marilou...!!!

Last Update: MultiRace.com just sent an e-mail to everybody to give the good news about the Pro-Elite Miguel Tellez...He will be OK:

Multirace.com Update
 
Dear Leonora,

As many of you know, Miguel Tellez, one of South Florida's best triathletes, was in an accident at today's race.  While initial reports seemed bleak, he is going home from the hospital today.  He has a cut on his left knee, a concussion, and some stitches in the head, but very minor considering that he crashed at over 40 mph!  Thanks for your concern and we hope to see him back at the races real soon!
 
Thanks for reading!
 
Sincerely,
 

Your Multirace.com Staff
