More to come soon, but I’ll give you the quick recap.
- Hotel room had a nuclear emergency preparedness booklet due to the nuclear plant 5 miles away – reassuring :-/
- Tornado warning went of at 11:45pm – only got about 5 hours of sleep because of that (I believe that the weather pattern made its way over to Jon @ Mooseman)
- Race site was destroyed by wind. Lost 50 feet of beach, all the signs blew away, bike racks (thankfully empty) were toppled, tree down
- Race directors did an amazing job getting everything back in order with only a half hour delay to the race
And the results???
A killer swim + 19.5 mph on the bike + 7:45 min/miles on the run + good transitions = 5:15:20 (that is a 53 minute PR!!!!!)
Stay tuned for details. Warning: Jennie has recently discovered “burst mode” on the digital camera – there may be LOTS of pictures
Congrats to all the racers this weekend!
Update: The official results online seem to have changed from what they posted at the race. My online results have the same run time, but a pace of 8:20 instead of 7:45. Which means one of two things. A) The online results are incorrect (doubtful) or B) The last minute course changes shortened the course to 12.1 miles instead of 13.1. Regardless, it is PR either way.
