1/2 mile swim, 15 mile bike, 5K run
Swim - 18:04
T1 - 2:42
Bike - 53:29
T2 - 3:1
Run - 35:19
I've got a lot of work to do, particularly on the bike, although for me, that's a decent time. I was pleased with the swim time, and okay with the run. I did great when we were on pavement, but the second half was on sand, which sucked, but what can you do. Got popped on the back of the head during the swim, not hard, and the girl apologized profusely. It really wasn't that bad, but it was nice of her to be concerned :) And my transitions are fine, but I should probably stop chatting with everyone on my rack. Then again, like Linae says, they ain't paying me to do this, so I may as well enjoy myself.
Enjoyed the free beer at the end, and had a great time with Linae, Kurt, and Joe at the Angry Pepper afterward. This was actually the best I've felt about racing tris, ever. There were few "WTF am I doing here??" moments, and NONE of them on the bike, which is a first. So I guess Linae's Evil Plan is working ;)
Next race: Taphouse 5K, Oldsmar, FL, June 12. Starts and ends at a pub! Hell yeah!
