Thanks to you two I had a good race today! I was thinking about you guys for motivation! 

Of course I was late, driving 80mph to get there and arrived at 6:45...

I saw Dave Cornwall, Ken Fine, Barry, Gunnar and Jimmy.  I thought, oh well, there goes the podium - no way would I get Barry and Dave and this would be Ken's year. Let alone there might be another unknown.

Swim was pretty casual; I was next to Pete Kain just chatting; thank God he is in the next age group! Amazing what a nice guy he is. Anyhow, he took off like a friggin bullet. I tried to go with him but my HR spiked and had to back off. There was so much carnage in the water, though, slower waves doing breast stroke, you had to swim around. I went 2 mins slower than what I had been doing in the pool.

After the swim, about 1 mile in to the bike, some dude comes by, swerving in and out of the traffic cones. Frickin it's Ken Fine! He was blowing by me, totally impressive. I thought, yep, this is the year he beats me and so much for top 3. But for some reason he didn't keep extending on me. I came up on him and his bike was making this weird noise and his chain looked funny. Turns out his front derailleur was broken or something; he couldn't get in to the big ring. So I kept going and he fell back. About 3/4 of the way though, suddenly that mofo passed me again! I got refocused and was able to drop him but I was petrified that he'd catch me on the run. The good news is that no one passed me on the bike.

On the run I went by Gunnar around mile 1.5. But he hung on like a tick; I couldn't believe it. We were going 6:30 pace. Finally I extended on him.
At the turnaround, frickin Ken Fine was "right there" behind me. I swear I would never have run that hard w/o him behind me. Dave was right behind as well.
I pressed the pace and ran as hard as I could. I finally looked back but...couldn't see Ken or Dave!
Finished the race and then, boom, there Ken was just 23 seconds behind. Damn, when that dude figures out how to race he is going to be untouchable.
Though as you guys pointed out, it's because of transition :-)

Huge props, though, for Jon Erskine. Back in 2014, when we were in the same age group, he nearly ran me down but I got him by 6 seconds. This year he had the 3rd fastest overall bike split (42:35) and 4th fastest run (29:25!). He got sweet revenge and beat me by 25 seconds. Thank goodness he is in the younger age group (48). But totally impressive.

I am so seriously ruined right now. Took a 3 hour nap. Both calves are shredded.

You guys are the best for the encouragement. Really missed you out there today.
