Ironhead Results and thoughts quickly..

OK, peeps I completed my First Olympic!!! Yahooooo!! It was fun!!! It was HOT!! Talked to others! Ran with a few! and right now feel good, just tired!

I will give race recap in full but here's the bottom line.
Swim: I survived, way off my projected time but got it done, Kinda disappointed here but that only means I can get better, right? Projected time was 36 mins, actual time fuckn (ratings, ya know) 49 mins! WTF. Was I doggy paddling out there, damn! Oh wel.

Bike: Avg. 19mph, felt good. I'm happy. Stayed in Z3. Again, happy.

Run: Freakn` hot! No Shade! Avg. 11:30ish pace.. I think it's just a little longer but somewhere in there. Mostly ran in Z4. Again, did I say Freakn Hot!!

Overall time: 3 hours 28 mins. Damn if only that swim was down by 15 mins! no what's if's right?

So not just getting cleaned up and gonna head back to H-twn.

I am happy I had good race even if my swim was slow! I did it.. truly 1 step closer.....

I think you did AWESOME!!! I was out there doing a brick while you were racing...and 5 hours later I still feel mildly like I want to die. It was H-O-T out there today.
Many congrats and it was great meeting you. :-)

Congrats on completing your first Olmpic distance tri. Unfortunately I couldn't be in two places at the same time or I would have met you for the prerace swim and the race.

Hopefully, you'll return to Dallas to race again or we can meet up in Houston when I'm there to race in Tri 101 in November.

Stay tuned...
