So very tired

Well folks, I almost pulled it off, I almost met my goal but in not meeting my goal time I still crushed my old half-iron PR and earned 5th overall Clyde missing 4th overall by 1 one hundredth of a second. I am very pleased placing 5th overall Clyde and 261st out of 881; this race tends to call out the big guns in Arizona and Southern California.

I will post a race report alter, right now I’m beat from racing and then driving all the way back to Albuquerque. In the mean time here is how it shook out.


Swim: 37:55 – “1:54/100M” I place this is quotes because I heard from two pro triathletes that the swim course was long by 300 meters, which I tend to believe because I had a very good swim and this time isn’t as good as I would have expected.
T1 – 3:20
Bike: 2:29:45 – 22.4 mph.
I felt great on the bike, what can I say the climbing has really paid off.
T2 – 1:34
Run: 2:18:28 – 10:35.
I am actually pretty pleased with this run and I will explain in my race report. Here is what I can tell you for now though. The ambient temperature was between 90 and 93 degrees and the temperature as measured at about waist high with heat reflected off the pavement was 100 degrees. The heat, in short, was blistering.

Total Time: 5:31:01. NEW PR BABY!
