Florida 70.3 Race Update

Just a quick update. I raced my first race of the season this past weekend at the Florida ½ Ironman in Orlando at Disney World. While the first race of the season is always a little nerve-racking, both getting your head to remember how to pack for a race and your body to remember how to get up and go, I am pleased to admit that after a long winter, I didn’t forget to pack a thing and my body did, indeed, remember how to race!

I wound up 3rd overall in a field that was surprisingly strong for an early season race! I posted the fastest swim split, fastest bike split, but couldn’t hold off the very swift footed Leanda Cave and Nina Kraft on the run. I did manage to hold off a hard charging Lisa Bentley to stay in 3rd. It wasn’t pretty, but lucky for me, you don’t lose points for holding-on-ugly-like.

I’ve got some work to do, but for a season opener, I can’t complain!
