It’s a long time since I’ve raced a sprint triathlon, close on 2 years. Memories were hazy as to how to race them other than that vague memory of total and utter pain. The location was excellent, outdoor pool, back roads, nice steep run. The race looked good on paper and didn’t disappoint.
Those times resulted in 6th. People went hard, very very hard on the bike with me placing 3rd on the bike and 4th overall. Lead bike was 32 mins! Sadly I lost two places on the run, a lack of speed, a lack of hurt, and an inability to just kill myself. Saying that…highest place ive ever had in a triathlon.
Technically I won my AG…but no prizes.
