Race Report:

32 26:34 swim
71 01:49 t1
39 1:15:22 bike
89 01:20 t2
103 47:22 run
40 2:32:26 overall

I didn't feel in great shape, but I did the best I could. Did reasonably well in the swim.

T1 was slower than I would have liked.

Bike went well all things considered, but the strong cyclists were noticeably stronger than me (Kunkel, Goebel, etc.). I had to let them go.

T2 was slower than I wanted too, but not bad.

Run was painful. I had to slow down a couple of times, but I fought through as best as I could. But I couldn't hold off Mackem. Bummer!

For my fitness level, I was happy with the results.
