With warm water and good weather on race day, when the horn sounded the racers entered the meat grinder. 42 minutes later Karen arrived at the shore victoriously with her next competitor arriving 12 minutes later giving her a nice head start out of T1. The remainder of the pack trickled in within the event cut off time.
Patrick put down the best time in the run, clearly sprinting the course and skipping all of the aid stations. Jason with the next best time, finished this portion of the race 40 minutes later. There were rumors within the triathlon community that he did the course by sprinting 400 meters, vomiting, and then sprinting the next 400 meters, only to vomit again.
This was an interesting race to watch as positions traded back and forth throughout the entire course. In the end the leader proved that all it takes is solid effort to gain inches on others with every step. And now that you have suffered through my humor here are the overall results....
Thank you to everyone who participated and to everyone who made an attempt. This has inspired me to run another one within the next few months that will be strictly made of relay teams. Mackenzie please email me at tucker_lr (@) yahoo (.)com with your full name and address so I can get your care package underway.
THANKS AGAIN EVERYONE!!
