I will post a race report later in the week - maybe next week. I will say it was one of the hardest things I've done. Swim was perfect (at least my time was exactly what I was shooting for). I ran the entire run except for a bit before mile 11 and a bit before mile 12. And I survived the bike. Made it up the big scary hill and I didn't die. Considerable achievement, given we had 28 mph winds and 35 mph gusts. Including a headwind the entire 20 "easy downhill coast" to the bike finish. Given how hard the bike was I'm super proud that I ran the run section so well. It may not have been fast or pretty, but my feet were moving in a motion generally resembling running.
Today, everything but maybe my ears are sore. We're headed out the grandparents ranch for a few days and then up to the mountains for hiking, kneeboarding, and fly fishing. I think I earned this R&R.
