Race Report:

First multi-sport event - did the bike portion of a relay team. Teamed with Jenn Lomangino (swim) and Carolyn Booker (run).

Relay wave was first - and our swimmer came into transition 3rd. Holy crap! Now it's my turn and I am 1:48 behind first place. Before we hit mile number 3, I pass the lead rider and find myself right behind the pace car and police escort! My practice laps have been between 19.5 and 20.4 mph, but I am recovering from a chest cold, so I am not sure how much gas is in the tank. No matter, it's head down and turn over the pedals at a high cadance for as long as possible because after the ride I won't have to do the run. So for the next 12.5 miles I am leading the bile leg, and on the last part of the climb up Homewood, I got passed by the eventual winner of the whole race. I came back to the transition area as the second bike, and first in relay teams!
