race video and a few after thoughts
thanks to my lovely husband for running around like a madman to capture some of the fun on this video. the title of the video reads may 5th but should read may 15th. my bad! but i wasn't about to go back and fix it because it is like a 5 hour process. youtube is sloooooow and let's just leave it at that.
overall, i loved this race. i will be back next year to take that 1st place spot...believe it! after a 12 year hiatus from triathlons, i am thrilled with the outcome of saturday's race. i mentioned in an earlier post that i had done st. anthony's in 1997 and 1998 and found one of the times from the one in 1997. unfortunately, i was unable to find a breakdown of the times to compare but the overall time was (are you ready?)...3:14:20. not a bad improvement.
now that i've had a chance to digest bits and pieces of the race, here are a few things i will start working on:
~ do more running in the hotter part of the day. 95% of my running is done before the sun comes up.
~ practice, practice, and practice faster transitioning.
~ keep improving on the swim and work on getting faster/more efficient.
hope everyone had a great weekend too. a big thanks to everyone who sent me good race mojo, gave me a shout out on their blogs and left such awesome comments on mine. it meant a lot to me and i was really feeling the love!
much love and peace out!
