After catching a break on the weather this summer with tri's, this one made up for it with the heat and humidity. Some confusion on the swim, went a little further than supposed to, decent bike considering the rolling hills and felt good on the run. Good end to the tri season.

Hot and muggy, so the bit of breeze was a help. There was a bit of confusion on the swim course in terms of turn marks, so probably added 100 m or so to my swim. Had a so-so bike portion. Just couldn't seem to find much of a rhythm with the rollers, but my run was more solid than the last couple of races. All in all a good way to finish off the season.

jogging across a field in the dark before the race was not smart. I stepped in a hole and wrenched both knees. had to sit on the ground feeling stupid for awhile. thought about just going back home, but ended up doing the sprint. first out of the water and off the bike in my AG, but couldn't run at all. never had to walk in a tri before, but today was the day. easily the worst tri experience of my life. three days later, and things are feeling much better. I'll do a couple more sprints and the season's done.
