Yes, I am a slow biker. And every single person in the race passed me at some point :). I have done this course before, but honestly I don't remember it that well. I thought it was hilly, but it was HILLY. It was rollers the whole way, never big hills, but just constant short rollers. and the roads are really bumpy almost the whole way. There was a couple spots where the roads were decent - but pretty much a bumpy ride. I even lost a bottle out of my cage! Also, it is not closed to traffic, so you have cars driving by you a lot (and sometimes not big shoulders). BUT it is a beautiful ride and I could not have asked for better weather. It was in the upper 70s as a high! I really never got hot during the race, in fact my feet were numb the first 3 hours because it was pretty chilly. The Aid Stations were great, packed with food and drink. Volunteers amazing. I took two bathroom breaks and that was frustrating because there was only 2 port potties at the aid stations, so those took a while. But I finished! I was so freaking happy to get off that bike!!!

T2 took me 6 mins and 55 seconds. I was ready to run the marathon!
