Was unconscious till Noon.  Need to get the body moving...  

Full day of business at potential partner co.  Flight was cancelled home and had to change flight three times; didn't get home till 1:30 AM.  Brutal.

Fly out to Chicago for business.

Sprint Run. I liked this run course. It was a flat, mostly-shaded, fast out & back! Only got passed by one person. Saw the 1st place male coming in as I was just approaching the first mile marker. Popped a caffeine gel. Met a guy from Brooklyn (not in my AG) who kept stopping to walk and I yelled at him "Such it up buttercup!" He laughed. I said, "Dude you came all the way from Brooklyn to walk the last mile of a 5k?" Needless to say he sucked it up and we ran the last mile together. It helped both of us.

Last 1/4 mile I stretched out my stride and left him behind me :-)

Overall, Race Awesome put on a top-notch race event. I had a great time and hope I can race more of their sprints races.

Finished 33 OA; 5th AG

  • 14m 15s
  • 750.00 meters
  • 01m 54s /100 meters

Sprint tri Swim in Peconic Bay. Conditions were pretty tough as their was a decent chop and we swam across the current and then against a strong current for 2/3rds. Distance was also definitely longer than 750m - which is fine cause we all swim the same distance. Entire M20 thru 50 went off in first wave, so a bit of contact.

All in all I was happy with this swim as I haven't swam in 2 weeks. 71/228 OA

Run #2
  • 28m 13s
  • 3.06 miles
  • 09m 13s /Mi

Post race run. Was heading out for 12-mile run... the oppressive heat/humidity and race effort (albeit a Sprint) zapped me of all energy. Practically walked home.
