IRONMAN Eagleman 70.3

Cambridge, MD
1.2 mi Swim, 56 mi Bike, 13.1 mi Run
June 8th, 2014
Finish Time: 5:54:25
AG: 27th

Well, A PR is a PR is a PR. Yes, I was extremely happy to PR but I wish it was more than 2 minutes. The week leading up to the race I was wondering what the water temperature would be. It was in the low 70's all week and of course race day it was 76. So no wetsuit yet again. That weekend it was hot and sunny so we knew there was a chance, but I was hopeful. We stayed in St. Michaels as Cambridge has minimal hotels (and I mean minimal), and St. Michaels is overall just so much prettier. If you plan on doing this race, book your hotels fast because seeing as there isn't much in this area, they sell out fast.

Rock Hall Sprint Triathlon

750-meter swim, 15-mile bike, 5k run
June 1st, 2014
Finish Time: 1:24:44
AG- 3rd

I did this race in 2012 and I loved it. But since I was in Florida last summer, I wasn't able to do it again. This year Chris came with me and we stayed in Chestertown the night before so the drive was only 20 minutes to the race Sunday morning. There were many more people this year racing and a larger transition area. I found my spot and counted to the rack it was so I would know where to turn.

My Top 5 Transition Must Do's

Are your transition times slow? is this because of a stubborn wetsuit? We've all experienced that before. So here are my tips for making transitions easy and smooth.
