Swim: 49:58 I was totally trained, but COMPLETELY unprepared for the 3 foot waves in the bay. The Race Director called it the hardest swim ever. Even the pros were 5-6 minutes off from their usual times. It became more survival than swim for many of us.
Bike: 3:03 ish (18.6 mph avg) It was very windy today, but the course is flat, flat, flat. I spent the entire time in aero.
Run: 1:44 (8:00 min pace) That was exactly where I wanted to be for the run.
Total time with transitions (which I don't have memorized at the moment) 5:44:08
My previous best was a 6:22 so I'm thrilled! Believe it or not, it was still only good for 32nd in my age group out of about 80. I guess that's what happens when people like Natasha Bahdmann and Chris Legh do this race.
Believe it or not, in a strange twist and turn of events, I also received a slot to the Inaugural Ford Ironman 70.3 National Championship this November in Clearwater, Florida!
Full Race Recap coming soon...Bottom line--it was a good day mainly because I didn't drown :-)
