Swim
  • 21m
  • 800.00 meters
  • -----

ocean swim with 400 m warm up before mostly to get comfortable in the wetsuit
Started at the front aimed left and finished it cruising .

Bike #2
  • 55m
  • 18.00 miles
  • -----

eased into it a race pace better than last race where i had to back off after 3 miles , not so today , and so had gas left to power the whole way through
terrain is flattish with rollers , so how do you explain 9 mph to 38Mph range during the bike leg ? Spent a lot of time in aero position and slid forward on the saddle , there are only 400 m worth of tricky turns so riding a TT bike would probably shave time , Our wave was delayed by 10 mins so there were less folks out to pass from previous waves .

Run
  • 45m
  • 4.00 miles
  • -----

Knew the run would be hot and it hurt my pace , just trying to survive running in strong sun and very warm temperatures , The distance and terrain are totally doable

After jumping in the ocean to cool off , i went to glance at results , my time was slower than previous years , so i figured , maybe there was an outside chance ...
Low and behold i placed 2nd in Sup Clydesdale , so i made my waay back to awards area and they announced our names pretty quick after . My wife was there to witness and take some fun snaps .
