Ok I am finally getting this posted, I am sorry I have not had a lot of time to post this and I am sure I missed some awesome racing and workout from my friends but right after this race my wife and oldest daughter went on holiday to PEI Canada and I have had my hands full with the youngest. So lets get to it, I will explain the alright face first although this time is only 30sec slower then my best time it should have bee 2min faster. Why? The swim that is why. I had a terrible swim probably the most nu-nerved I have been in a tri swim ever, first this has always been a out of he water swim so I lined up right on the edge even with everyone else in the water thinking that when he told everyone to get out of the water I would be golden. Well just before the start he said it would be starting just as everyone is, now I have to get to the front and I dont want to be that guy pushing my way up so I did the best I could and the horn went. I have never been so pummeled in a race, I should have noticed that I had two big guys on either side of me and they spent the entire time to the first buoy beating the heck out of me and each other! I was going in to full panic at this point swimming all heads up trying to see some way out of this why still moving forward. Just as my panic got started to get the best of me I got a little break got my self together and found a little freedom after the first turn. The swim back in was not as bad but I had to spend a lot of mental energy calming my self down. So out of the swim I was really glad to be done and really mad at what had happened. Got to my bike and got on, just as I was about to get to the mount line a good friend Beth says "Jason you have your wetsuit on!" yes that is right I was so freaked out after the swim I got my top of the suit down but never took the whole thing off!! So I stopped right there and took it off and left it got on the bike and went. I will spare you the details of the bike and run they went as expected. I did get a little tired on the run but it is a hill course and I did work hard on the bike. I should be very happy with this being 30sec slower then my PR but I just can not get that swim out of my head, one day I will get it right one day!
