Sounds like a great race organizer.  Nice work though.

Raced an Oly yesterday.

Had a comfortable but ridiculously slow swim. The water was cool and clear. It was a non-wetsuit swim in a lake. My weekly ocean swims are a helluva lot easier than this was. Embarrassingly slow swim time of 50 minutes (1 mile).

Bike was as expected. HR was a bit high coming off the swim, mellowed out, took it easy. Tried to do this event at IM pace to get ready for IMFL.

Run was as expected as well. Cooler temps (mid-80s) made the run go a little more smoothly than it normally does for me. My calves got really achy about 1 mile in. 50ish minute 10k.

3rd place in my AG overall. Felt more like a long training day than a race, but glad I did it anyway.

Signed up for the Jekyll Island turtle crawl sprint tri today. Hopefully the first of a few for the year, goal is to do an Olympic distance by the end of the year and maybe a half next year.

my plan is to do sprints during the summer and if I can ever get my run better (and my ankles able to take it), an OLY in October.  Barring injury, I'm gonna do an OLY in spring 2014
