Always a successful day crossing a finish line uninjured, under your own will, and all with a smile, all the better when getting to race it with friends!
Scandalous choice of racing in a Speedo made for a lot, A LOT, of targets on your back. A couple handfuls of people told me after they had their best races because they couldn't live with being beat by someone in a Speedo and also a killer moustache.
No back issues, but mentally and physically fatigued from the week made for a tough race to get "the feel". Cramped heavily at mile 5 of the run. Had an alright time on the bike, kept losing focus on power and consistency. Then forgot to de-shoe myself before the dismount line which threw me off too.
Overall, a fantastic weekend. Cutting the season short and focusing on some other recreational activities. One more sprint and then it'll be a short retirement until next year.
Be safe out there, look both ways before crossing the road, use your blinkers, don't text, talk, or use your phone while driving, help one another, pick up a piece of garbage or recycling up instead of hoping someone else will take care of it, smile to one another, hug one another tighter, tell someone 'i love you', give a random high five, clap louder, WOOOO louder, have fun, make good choices, embrace and endure, prevail, be victorious. today is yours, be spontaneous and be amazing!
Thanks to the amazing sponsors this year: Base Performance; SBR Sports for keeping me chafe free in races and easy in and out of shoes/wetsuits; sls3 compression, the RACING GREYHOUNDS; the Wolverine Sports Club, and the Cupcake Cartel
Something lit a fire under my butt today. I worked HARD for this. 7mile base, 8.5mile push, 9mile all out (I’m all slow twitch), 3.5 miles completed and no walking recovery! Plus a ridiculous amount of floor repeats! #workhard#sls3#nevergiveup#bethebestversionofyourself
