We had a perfect day for racing last Sunday. We could have not asked for better weather.
I have to say that although I suffered out there I very much enjoyed the organization of this event and the venue. It was challenging but great fun all the same.
The only real complaint that I have is about the first 5 Miles and last 5 Miles of the bike race were routed over the same patch of road that is in DESPERATE need of some attention. It was rough and could be improved. Other than that this is course in which you can throw down the hammer if the wind decides to be on your side...
I am thrilled with my race from start to finish. I put together a fine performance with a run that at the beginning had me worried that this could end being a long day... But instead I was consistent and kept up a pace that I could handle.
5:26 turned out to be my time in the end... 5 hours and some change in which people got to see the CLOT BUSTER polka-dots and get a glimpse of the www.STOPTHECLOT.org message. The exposure was great at this event.
Although it was not a PR at this distance I am very pleased on how all came together.
Now it is time to get back out there and attempt to regain some fitness ahead of some running races that we will be doing this early fall. For now I will continue to enjoy my smuggled New Belgium FAT TIRE and dreaming of sweating...
Thanks for reading,
