Race Day!!!!  I signed up at the last minute for the Utah Summer Games Triathlon sprint.  Got up at 4:30 am to stretch, hydrate, and eat.  The race was held out at the Sand Hollow Reservoir.  The begining of the race was a little disorganized and the swim was a mass start.  What a mess that was with everyone going into the water at the same time.  We ahd about 250 start at that same time.  I went wide to avoid the hoard.

I finished the swim (16:11 min) and made it through transition in 1:55 minutes.  The bike was a very good day.  I did 14 miles in 39:06 minutes (1:08 transition).  That was then I realized I was in 5 th palce over-all.  The run was very slow but since I really had no one around me, I took it easy (23:45 min).  A few speedsters past me and I didn't try to catch them.  I finished 10th over-all and first in my division.  It was a very good race and nice to finish in the front for a change.

I think the only reason I got ahead was the everyone was jammed up in the swim and I went around the mess.  I swam a longer distance but I got through faster.

I went to In-N-Out and had a double double to celebrate.  Laid around the house for a few hours.  Bought some new running shoes, and then went to Mesquite to an all-you-can-eat sushi bar.  AHHHHH sweet sushi!!!!!

When I got back to St George I felt like I didn't do enough today, so I ran an easy hilly 8 miles at a 8:50 pace.  I was burping wasabi the whole run, but it was still worth it!

You're so modest. MAYBE the reason you came in ahead of everyone is because...YOU ROCK! :-)
