Comment: Relay With Stacie Ataras

Race Report:

Did this as a relay with Stacie Ataras (due to knee issues). I swam and biked; she ran.

Swim: 35:25

I was hoping for 30 minutes, but heard afterward the course was a couple hundred yards long. If so, this is about right, but a little slower than I wanted.

T1: 6:12

Couldn't really run to transition, so this is long because I walked.

Bike: 1:31:29

Lack of bike training really shows here.

T2: 1:16

The beauty of a relay is a fast transition time.

Run: 38:31

We were in the very last wave, so by the time Stacie hit the run course, it was late morning, very hot & humid.
