St Augustine Summer Triathlon

I didn't go into this race thinking I would get 2nd overall, but that's what happened!  I was stoked with a time of 58:43.  The swim felt pretty good, but slow, so I was shocked when I got on the bike and realized I was in second at that point.  I could see the lead guy just 40 meters in front of me, but I couldn't seem to catch him and by the end of the bike, he was about 100 meters ahead.  I felt really good coming into the run, but since I hadn't done much run training due to shin splints, I only had an average pace of 7m.  This is what kept me from getting first so I'll be working on this.  I didn't do the rubber band trick on the bike and I put socks on for the run.  I think this was the way to go for speed right at the beginning of the bike and comfort on the run.

It was great to have a bunch of locals at the race.  Close to 20 people from out Tri Club where there and the camaraderie was awesome!  Even David showed up to see what competition he had for A…
