Before I give a recap on Silverlake I wanted to add something to my last
post. At Gateway I had the pleasure of meeting Andy Potts and Matty
Reed. They were competing in a relay for charity and they stuck around
for a meet and greet with the athletes and fans. It was a super cool
experience and I was able to get my picture with them.
Silverlake this was my 4th time racing there. I have done this race more
than any other and its one of my favorite events. Its a short Sprint
race but always well done and they added a finishers medal for 2010.
swim course was the same and it happened to be wetsuit legal. The swim
was nothing exciting and I finished in 9'52" which was my second fastest
at this race. I was little tired coming out of the water but overall I
felt good. The bike course was new for 2010. It was still flat and fast
but with less turns which made it even faster. Because of this I had my
fastest bike time of 28'09" which was 21.3 mph. By the time I made it
into T2 I was starting to loose energy. The beginning of my run was good
but I started to fade quickly. If not for a slower run I might have set
a PR for this course. My run time was 23'50" which was a 7'57" pace and
my second slowest time at this race. Overall my time was 1:05:31 which
was 3rd fastest for this event. All of my times are relatively close in
time so I was satisfied with the day.
As for my next race I have 2
in mind but I have signed up for neither. I am looking at the Sylvan
Beach Triathlon and Buffalo Springs Lake Triathlon. I am not sure if I
will do one, both or neither race. I will let you know.
