The Bike : By far my favourite part of the event today. I felt great going out...wind was at our backs. I was cranking really well while trying to conserve energy for the run. At the turn around the wind was ferocious. It didn't let up the whole way back. I was struggling to keep pace. I found that my aero bars are not in the right position for me. So my wide shoulders and thick chest caught alot of that wind cause I was sitting up way too high! At no point did I feel any discomfort and really really enjoyed the ride. Only thing..Mother Nature if your are listening not so much wind next time.
Overall feeling excellent. Except for the part at the end where I could hear a couple of Women talking casually and as they nonchalantly passed me told me to get moving, exclaiming that the had done the bike course 2x. All joking aside Kona Shelley is an amazing cyclyist it just floors me how much of an athelete she is!
I have alot of excuses but in the end I had a blast saw lots of ppl from Masters swimming, I even had a few friends out there cheering me on...even some that hardly know me.
A special huge thanks to Mike for being my Sherpa and watching my kids so I could participate.
OMG it is only 2 months til Steelhead!
