Comment: First time doing the double. Day 2 easier than I thought!

Race Report:

2 13:04 swim
9 1:48 t1
7 51:04 bike
11 1:08 t2
4 21:59 run
4 1:29:00 overall

Only one woman beat my time. Not bad.

2nd fastest age-group swim. Also not bad.

4th overall - took a gut-check in the last 1/2 mile thanks to cheering by Scott Baldwin!

This felt much easier than the day before since it was essentially half the distance.

The swim was easy, although not easy to figure out. I pushed reasonably hard, but not so hard the bike would crush me.

t1 and t2 were both uneventful.

The run hurt, but I pushed as hard as I could and gave it everything I had from 1/2 mile out when I saw Baldwin cheering for both the guy in front of me and me to catch him.

Great race, doing the double every year I can!
