I thought that rather than bore you with the written details of a long day, I would instead try a video race report where you get to stare at my ugly mug for 10 minutes while I talk about my race! I hope you enjoy it :-).
I’ve also posted some pictures below for your perusal!
For those who just want to know the numbers, I ran a 9:28 (PR by nearly 30 minutes!) – 1:08 swim, 4:53 bike, 3:20 run. This was good enough for 7th in 35-39, 81st overall, and 41st amateur. Unfortunately, not good enough for Kona, but I’ll take a top ten result in this competitive race!
