Short version: Evergreen International Triathlon (1.5K/.9 mile swim, 40K/24.8 mile bike, 10K/6.2 mile run)

swim: 29:52 (1:58 / 100m)
T1: 1:06
bike: 1:10:28 (21.16 mph)
T2: 1:13
run 47:58 (7:44 mm)

Overall: 2:30:37!!! 1st in age out of 15, 12th woman out of 79 (counting elites), 89 out of 310 overall. A PR by 4 minutes!

Photo comparison:
This year was the second annual Evergreen International Triathlon, I finished with a personal best by over 4 minutes for that distance with 2:30:37, taking first in my age group out of 15, and finishing 12th out of 79 women. It was a beautiful day for a race, a nice breeze, cool, and no humidity. I have never felt so wonderful in a race!

Last year, I felt not so hot. I never should have done?this?race?last year. I was getting over a sinus infection, and I realize now I was so sick, I was a horrible shade of grey. I raced for many reasons, including that it was the debut year, and that I am VP of the tri club that puts on this race. I managed 3rd in my AG out of 5 or 6, but felt awful the entire time.

The following is a photo comparison between last year and this year:

Other hightlights: Since we had an elite wave, Brian Rhodes, New Zealand IM pro came to race, giving a swim clinic the evening before. Very cool guy (and hot!). He ended up taking third, behind a local young man trying to get his pro card (who took first, good for him!). This race was also a qualifying race for the Best of the US championships for IL. A local gal came in 3rd for the running. We also hosted a collegiate championship. I see good things for this race and my club!
