Wow, amazing race this morning. People can say what they want about having a World Championship on a flat course, and I agree to a certain extent, but you can't deny that having a lead pack of 20 guys off the bike together makes for a very exciting race. Blazing fast out there. 15 guys ride under 2 hours on the bike, a 69 minute run to win the race, winning time of 3:34, and a woman breaks 4 hours for the first time ever. Pretty amazing. And the woman who won today crashed earlier in the year and broke some ribs, just goes to show that you can't call it a season and give up when things don't go the way you plan. Lesson learned. My time which placed me 19th last year would have gotten me 44th this year. 70.3 racing seems to direction the sport of triathlon is headed in right now. Oh yeah, my predictions were way off.
Off to Blackstock Stadium right now to tailgate and then headed to the DePauw/Wabash Monon Bell football game! Already beginning to look forward to 2010.
