    And here it was, the run.

    First half marathon actually went pretty well. Pretty well as planned, though I started to have a bit of a tight stomach at this point, so I knew I was taking in no mo... read more

      Considering all this effort and training, I'd say it was a big win. I know nothing about nutrition for a Marathon, but maybe some tweaks to your plan is all you need (and maybe getting up to 16 milers in training). Awesome job meeting your goal!

      I am sure that between being a more efficient/fit long distance runner, and having bike conditions not quite so crazy, I could minimize the issues a lot too! :)

    great Challenge Penticton BIKE! 180 km 05:48 19.3mph pace

    I was 41st out of the water, and biked my way to 5th position.

    Bike conditions, terrible.

    MAJOR headwind out to Osoyoos cost me a GOOD 15-20 minutes.

    Had a LITTLE help on Richter pass, but... read more

      The conditions sucked but you played them to your advantage = win! Nice job keeping strong and steady and not getting out of your plan. I'd hate a crowded scene, too.

      Thanks man. It was a great day!!

      I'd love to see what I could have done if I'd followed a marathon training plan for the summer rather than trained the HALF distance, then jumped into a full ;)

      Might have to pick a different race next year!

      Doing a half at some point is pretty well a given! :D I felt I wasn't ready for it half-way through this year, but I'd LOVE to go and hammer one out early to mid next year!

    Swim went pretty well! I wanted to hit 1:10-1:15, so nailed that, tried to not expend too much energy as I had a long day coming.

    good Testing out the tt bike tune-up 33.97 km 01:02 20.3mph pace

    Well the tune-up went well, but I threw a rear bottle.

    Decided that the risk of throwing a bottle and having to retrieve it versus the possibility of fumbling an aid station was not worth it.

      The most important prep is not a part of the bike, keep that in mind. Everything else is fixable and/or minor.

      Of course, but gearing issues or losing my hydration setup could set me up for a baaaad run, and nothing new on race day!! :p

      Oregon & Washington are both a hot mess of fires. We've been socked in with smoke for the last 48 hours. It sucks! We really need rain!!

      Yep, pretty sure some of this smoke is from the washington fires, though we have some going in Oliver ( basically right off the bike course next week ) and rock creek an hour east of that
