  • Comments: Setup does a very good job putting on well organized races! This was actually the first setup race I was in that did not start on time. They started 6 minutes late because the patrol boats were late getting in the water. Can't fault setup on this and who really cares about six mintues? Not I.

  • Comments: I broke 2:30, which had been my goal, so I'm very happy. Set an oly-tri PR for bike, run and overall, so I guess I have to call it a good day all in all. Can't wait for NYC Tri next month to see just how much further I can drop those times!

  • Comments: Despite my crap day, I liked this race. The course was quite challenging...a lot hillier than I'd anticipated. The post race festivities were some of the best I've seen in a while. BBQ, and Kool Aid - reminded me of family picnics when I was a kid.

  • Comments: Worst personal race for me! Did not like the long run to T1, did not like the grass or right turn(s), the bike hills were a good experience but the run stunk!

  • Comments: This is a great race, especially since it was the first year that they did it. It did start a bit late, but I don't think anybody complained since it would only mean increased temps. A ton of Marines helped out as a fundraiser for the Marine Corps Ball. That was nice. For me this was the best race I have ever done. I REALLY rested the 3-4 days before hand. If I didn't feel like a workout, I skipped it. I think less is more for me as tapers are concerned. During the run I think part of it feeling better was that my focus was on the half IM this year and that added base made the Olympic distance so much easier. If anything, I finished the race with some fuel still in my tank. It was an Olympic distance PR by about 8 minutes :) I learned that in an Olympic distance, I don't really need that much nutrition. In my last Olympic I had twice as many cals and had some stomach upset. Weather was perfect too, which may have helped my speed :)
