What a great day! This race was a PR for me. It has been a very, very long time since I’ve hit a PR at any distance. I’m crediting it to all this crazy IM training. The headwind the first 6.5 miles was pretty strong. I kept thinking how great it would be when I turned around, to have that wind to my back. But, the second I turned around, ZERO WIND. What the hell? It was sunny and the temperature was perfect. There were aide stations every two miles. And I fueled half way with a package of Honey Stinger chews.
There was a great turn out of folks I know, which made the race a lot more fun!

It was also a major PR for my girl Amber.
