Summertime Blues Tri Run 3.1 mi 00:20 06:24 pace

On the run I just kept it nice and steady, making sure I didn't do any harm 2 weeks out from my IM. There was only one hill, and the rest was flat and smooth. I didn't know what my place was so all I could do was keep a steady pace and try to pick off the targets I could see ahead of me. I passed about 4 people on the run from my wave and only knew where I was when my wife yelled 4th overall. Turns out I had the fastest run split in the elite wave and 2nd overall, an age grouper got me by .4 seconds. So, after the top male was taken out of the mix, I received third place elite award. Good thing I didn't know that the next guy was only 20 seconds ahead, because I probably would have tried to chase him down and hurt myself.

My 14 yr old daughter also raced her first Tri today and got first in her age group by default. I ran her run segment with her and kept her going. She had a nice 400m kick and passed two people before the finish. I'm very proud of her.
