The swim was over 6 minutes faster than I thought I could do!
The bike was THE FASTEST I have ever ridden a bike for any distance 19.2 MPH for 56 miles!
The run was my WALL I was slowest here and fell apart, should have run 2:00 to 2:15 this would have given me a sub 6 hour event AND a top 10 finish in my age group.
I did finish 12th in my age group, and only 7 minutes from a top 10 finish!!
I may just do it again to try and break the sub six hour mark. :-)
