L sent N and I on our way and said she would see us at the finish. I told N that he was setting the pace and he did a great job. Super even splits. He's a speedy little guy :)

There were quite a few spots in the trail that were under water and/or mud so there were a few slow downs and/or jumps that needed to be made! We cheered for the leaders as they came back along the trail after the turnaround and I noticed that there was just one young lady ahead of N. He was still setting the pace perfectly. I asked him if he wanted to pick it up a bit at the end, and he said yes. He started to increase at about 3.5km, not huge, just a bit. Just past 4km, I see that we are gaining on the young lady in front of him. I think he saw it too, as he really started to pick it up. He passed her around 4.3km and never looked back. A few more puddles, and we were on the last straightaway. I told him to go for it and he gave it all he had. So awesome!

We waited for L to cross the finish line before going to grab our pancake breakfast :).

Super cool you can be such a positive influence!

My nephew drew all over my sister's wall within 12 seconds under my watch. Can only go up from here!

Is it realistic to race a sprint and Olympic distance race within 2-3 weeks of one another to gauge my progress before tackling the half Ironman?

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

I’m not going to sugar coat my experience and tell you that it was a piece of cake, but I am going to attempt to give you some advice and useful information that I wish I had before participating.
